These short stories detail the exploits of the fictional jewel thief who has been the model for many charming rogues. Set in London in the 1890’s, the stories are narrated by a down-and-out gentleman who becomes Raffles’ partner in crime. Narrator Walter Covell has the perfect rumbling British voice to portray the wonderful characters in these old-fashioned “capers.” His diction is clear in the several ranges he uses for the brilliant but rather cryptic Raffles and his unworldly colleague, the dim policemen, naive victims and other assorted characters. This audiobook will appeal to fans of vintage British mysteries, especially aficionados of Sherlock Holmes. B.V. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR 93]
