Foreman skilfully adapts the successful formulae of its predecessors, but this time Raffles has his sights set on his most difficult prize of all for the ever diffident Bunny.In `Bowled Over', Foreman slowly began to peel back to the layers of Raffles, and this time he teases out the softer side of Bunny, as the sweet Lucy Rosebury is introduced. It seems love is just as alluring as the wealth of the former Prime Minister in this one- if not more!This novella is packed full of warmth, charm and, [...]
Love, politics and even a bit of cricket feature in this third book in the series. An immensely fun novella that works well on its own and as part of the whole series. What keeps me coming back to the Raffles series is the wit, charm and surprising endings. This installment is probably the best one yet.
I enjoyed this novella immensely. I remember Raffles on the TV when I was a child, but I haven't read any of the stories. I found this very amusing, particularly enjoying the appearance of Inspector Lestrade and the mention of Sherlock Holmes. I would definitely like to read more of Raffles and Bunny's adventures.
Raffles: A Perfect Wicket is just as witty and charming as its predecessors. Raffles is up to his usual antics with planning a heist on Lord Rosebury, however in this adventure Raffles shows his softer side. Instead of stealing all the valuables Raffles sets it up so that Bunny can steal something more valuable.
A light and entertaining read.
