A Thief in the Night is a 1905 collection of short stories by Ernest William Hornung, featuring his popular character A. J. Raffles. It was the third book in the series, and the final collection of short stories. In it, Raffles, a gentleman thief, commits a number of burglaries in late Victorian England.

Although Raffles had been killed in the Second Boer War at the end of The Black Mask, chronicler and accomplice Bunny Manders narrates additional adventures which he had previously omitted, from various points in their criminal careers. (6 hr 11 min)

Nice little packet of short stories

(4 Sterne)

I enjoy listening to unfamiliar stories of interesting characters. Not quite Holmes and Watson, but similar and pretty good, and a precursor to our modern "White Collar" crime dramas. Author keeps the pace moving, and the readers are all rather good, so 4 stars.

It's so easy to admire the way E.W. Hornung writes; those little ways he has of discribing things, and the feeling of intimacy in the telling. Downright sexy. Thank you also to the narrator, who brings the tale to life, perfectly.

I truly appreciate the volunteers here, however hearing a British novel read with a southern accent is quite awful! Love this novel!
