Summary:
First published in 1909, A Thief in the Night is the first novel detailing the exploits and intrigues of gentleman thief A. J. Raffles in late Victorian England. The novel is a darker work than the three preceding short story collections ( The Amateur Cracksman , The Black Mask and A Thief in the Night .) In it a more cynical Raffles finds a corrupt moneylender, Mister Brigstock, is entrapping the young sons of the wealthy with exorbitant interest on his loans.
