The New Collected Short Stories by Jeffrey Archer
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

This contains the volumes To Cut a Long Story Short (2000), Cat O’ Nine Tales (2007) and And Thereby Hangs a Tale (2010). They are drawn together now in one magnificent volume. Varied and eventful, many are true, some classic tales, some startling, very much a book to keep by the bed and dip into all year. It is 880 pages of irresistible storytelling, and the best? Why, in Archer’s own words, Death Speaks, a one page Arab fable by an anonymous author which completely illustrates the simple art of storytelling.

If you like Jeffrey Archer you might also like to read books by Harry Bingham, James Patterson and Robert Ryan.

Synopsis

The New Collected Short Stories by Jeffrey Archer

This edition brings together three of Jeffrey Archer's classic collections of short stories: To Cut a Long Story Short, Cat O' Nine Tales and And Thereby Hangs a Tale, showcasing the master storyteller's skill like never before. Every reader will have their own favourites: the choices run from love at first sight across the train tracks to the cleverest of confidence tricks, from the quirks of the legal profession - and those who are able to manipulate both sides of the Bar - to the creative financial talents of a member of Her Majesty's diplomatic service - but for a good cause. In 'Caste-Off', Jamwal and Nisha fall in love while waiting for a traffic light to turn green in Delhi, and in 'Don't Drink The Water', a company chairman tries to poison his wife while on a trip to St Petersburg - with unexpected consequences ...The stories held in these pages are irresistible: ingeniously plotted, with richly drawn characters and deliciously unexpected conclusions.
