Item description for Raffles and The Match-Fixing Syndicate by Adam Corres...

Raffles and the Match-Fixing Syndicate is an adventurous and often surprising ride through the modern era of international cricket match-fixing. Adam Corres has re-invented the characters originally created by E.W. Hornung in 1899 and let them run riot in a new world - the increasingly decadent, dysfunctional and reliably unreliable society that many of us already call home. Understand and explore the world of the match-fixers; how it's done and how to spot their interfering hand. Follow Raffles, a celebrated England cricketer with an immaculate reputation, as he falls ever further from grace in his fatal, relentless, addiction to risk.

Reviews - What do customers think about Raffles and The Match-Fixing Syndicate?

Raffles and the Match-Fixing Syndicate  Feb 25, 2008
Raffles and the Match-Fixing Syndicate is a criminally adventurous ride through the modern era of international sports match-fixing. It's a crime thriller, escapist adventure, comedy and sharp social commentary. It's full of witty wordplay and understated modern humour. Adam Corres has re-invented the characters originally created by E.W. Hornung in 1899 and let them run riot in a new world - the increasingly decadent, dysfunctional and reliably unreliable society that many of us already recognise. Understand the world of the match-fixers; how it's done and how to spot their interfering hand. Follow Raffles, a celebrated English sportsman with an immaculate reputation, as he falls ever further from grace in his fatal, relentless, addiction to risk. Fascinating, never dull and pleasantly addictive stuff.
