Sure, you can root for Sherlock Holmes or Charlie Chan or Hugh Drummond. But I'll take a good old-fashioned rogue over the lot of 'em any day. Boston Blackie, A.J. Raffles, the Lone Wolf, Thubway Tham, Mr. Clackworthy, Arsene Lupin—they all hold a curious fascination, dabbling as they do in crime and punishment! So take a walk on the seamy side of the Victorian era. (And yes, we are cheating with my dates a little bit. But we wanted to include a few latter-day rogues whose adventures are in the spirit of the Victorian rogues.) All told, it's more than 1,900 pages of great reading!
