Mr. Justice Raffles by E. W. Hornung

Free US/UK Kindle Classic
Feliz Navidad as we say in San Antonio, Texas!  I am actually in Indiana tonight and waiting on a blizzard which I hope will not affect my travel plans Friday.  I am spending Christmas with my family here and will be bringing my 97 year old mother to Texas for the winter to get her out of the snow and cold.

A few days ago I received a notice from Amazon that my blog had not been updated for over a month.  I was shocked because I publish a new blog twice a week (usually Tuesday and Thursday) and have done so for over two years.  However, I did not know the blog was not updating because I had to pay to subscribe.  I now do that, but when I was starting out, I only had a free subscription for a month to make sure it worked.  

I have no clue why the blog did not update and get pushed to your Kindles.  I am very sorry that happened and as of this week I subscribe so I will know if there is a problem.  It is working now because, basically, I kicked the tires.  I just kept sending the same information through over and over until it started to work.  I had made no change that might affect publication.  

If you subscribe via e-mail or rss (as opposed to subscribing on your Kindle), you must subscribe again to the feed by clicking on this link.

I am very sorry that my  faithful subscribers had this problem.  If you ever have an issue, please e-mail me marilyn@marilynlittcom

Now, down to business with Mr. Justice Raffles by English author E. W. Hornung (brother-in-law of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.) (US Edition)  (UK Edition)

This book is the last in the Raffles series about the gentleman crook.  It has a very nice beginning!

Raffles had vanished from the face of the town, and even I had no conception of his whereabouts until he cabled to me to meet the 7.31 at Charing Cross next night. That was on the Tuesday before the 'Varsity match, or a full fortnight after his mysterious disappearance.

I love a mystery!

The traffic in Piccadilly came as crisply to the ear as on a winter's night of hard frost. It was a night of wine, and sparkling wine, and the day at Lord's must surely be a day of nectar. I could not help wondering whether any man had ever played in the University match with such a load upon his soul as E.M. Garland was taking to his forced slumbers; and then whether any heavy-laden soul had ever hit upon two such brother confessors as Raffles and myself!
