A Thief in the Night: A Book of Raffles' Adventures By E. W. Hornung
eBook (ePub): $2.99
If I must tell more tales of Raffles, I can but back to our earliest days together, and fill in the blanks left by discretion in existing annals. In so doing I may indeed fill some small part of an... More > infinitely greater blank, across which you may conceive me to have stretched my canvas for the first frank portrait of my friend. The whole truth cannot harm him now. I shall paint in every wart. Raffles was a villain, when all is written; it is no service to his memory to glaze the fact; yet I have done so myself before to-day. I have omitted whole heinous episodes. I have dwelt unduly on the redeeming side. And this I may do again, blinded even as I write by the gallant glamour that made my villain more to me than any hero. But at least there shall be no more reservations, and as an earnest I shall make no further secret of the greatest wrong that even Raffles ever did me.< Less

The book paints a picture of air force life in the 40s, 50s & 60s, including the period when the Cold War nearly became the opposite. "One of the Wellingtons had begun an overshoot, but as... More > the engines reached full power the nose had shot skywards, the aircraft had climbed for a moment then stall-turned into the ground and burned. As they started the overshoot, the instructor had taken the backthrust from the elevators, and his backrest had broken away under the strain, sending him over backwards, still holding the wheel. That was all that it had taken to kill three men." "A manoeuvre to practise in the simulator was the escape. They would need to be five miles away at bomb-burst and running away from the pressure wave but some had not thought it through. Survival required an instant tight, diving turn while closing the bomb doors and pushing the aircraft to its limiting speed. Less imaginative captains would ask how far away they were at bomb-burst and I would reply “Three-quarters of a mile.”< Less

I have not been able to write with the completeness that I should have wished; and I am aware of many sins of omission. I can only hope that when the description fails the reader will be fortunate to have his attention irresistibly diverted to one or other of my collaborator's beautiful pictures.< Less
