Über diesen Titel:

Inhaltsangabe:

A collection of stories about crime that involves sophistication, wit and genius. In this amazing anthology Hornung introduces Raffles as protagonist. A cricketer by profession, he is a skilled thief who specializes in stealing jewels yet apparently lives a respectable life. It is intriguing to see how Hornung shows that there is honour among thieves and even they live by some rules. Mind-blowing!

Vom Hörbuch: An English gentleman's honor is beyond reproach or suspicion even in the case of Raffles, a national cricket star and an utterly charming and accomplished thief who turns to crime to sustain a lifestyle he can ill afford. Alas, our intimacy with this fascinating protagonist and his accomplice is hindered by a labored, often torpid narration, which is heedless to the text's dramatic cues. Although Covell approximates a "top-drawer" English accent, he cannot sustain it; his attempts at regional dialects are inconsistent and lapse into painful parody. Perhaps a native speaker might have succeeded better in capturing the flavor of Victorian society, wherein the appearance of honor and position, so delineated by language, is to be respected above all else. B.M.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
