Doyle, Arthur Conan: The Doings of Raffles Haw. V1. 12 Jan 2011

Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle, DL (22 May 1859 7 July 1930) was a Scottish physician and writer, most noted for his stories about the detective Sherlock Holmes, which are generally considered a major innovation in the field of crime fiction, and for the adventures of Professor Challenger. He was a prolific writer whose other works include science fiction stories, historical novels, plays and romances, poetry, and non-fiction.

A mysterious millionaire Raffles Haw comes to reside in Tamfield in Staffordshire. Even before he arrives, people start gossiping about him. As his house is being constructed, people wonder at the number of workers, their speed and the complete disregard for the amount of money spent which the unknown millionaire manifests. When he arrives, he strikes an acquaintance with the McIntyre family, which consists of Robert, his sister Laura, and their father. McIntyre senior had been a prosperous gun merchant but had gone bankrupt and lost his sanity. Laura is engaged to the vicar Mr.Spurling's son, Hector Spurling, who is a sailor and is summoned for duty in the navy at the start of the novel.
