The Amateur CracksmanJune 12, 2009
Anyway, Raffles. He’s an excellent cricket player! He has dark, curly hair! He leads his old friend Bunny into a life of crime!
So Raffles is like, hey, don’t worry about it, I’m in debt too. Lets go get some money from a pal of mine. And then he takes Bunny to a jewelry shop and they rob it.
Bunny, unlike Raffles, has lots of moral scruples. Every time they’re between jobs, he agonizes over the fact that he really likes the money, but taking it is wrong. And every time he’s sort of feeling okay about the situation, Raffles shows up and says something like, So, our fence has discovered our true identities. I think we’re going to have to kill him.
So. The Amateur Cracksman, by E.W. Hornung. Lots of fun.
