British Museum, London, England: EW Hornung’s Raffles – The brilliance of EW Hornung’s Raffles is that the star of his short stories is the criminal, rather than the police. Humorous, intelligent, well-respected in London society and not without honour, Raffles and his sidekick, Bunny Manders, are inverted contemporaries of the more famous Sherlock Holmes (Horning and Conan Doyle were related). In A Jubilee Present, Raffles and Bunny plan a robbery of a ‘room of gold’ at the British Museum, located in Kensington, London.
