Some of the stories are cleverly funny meanwhile others are deeply perceptive about human nature. Let me summarize a few of my favourite stories: The character, Jeremy seems gullible but likeable, whereas Arabella holds a hint of suspicion about her.
It tells about a story of a young man who is conned by a rich young woman to steal a diamond ring. A spellbinding tale of love and betrayal.
The ending will leave you stunned. I loved the ending of the story especially.
A very cute story indeed, it is really sweet I feel. The ending will bring a wry smile on your face. Throughout the collection, he weaves clever and compelling tales with straightforward, unadorned prose. His writing is clear and concise, and many of his characters are memorable.
But it’s really the concept of the story, and the story behind the story, that is at the heart of Archer’s elegant and entertaining work.
View all 3 comments. Due to arcehr bad memory, I thought this was a collection of short stories about animals.
There are 15 general fiction stories that were enhanced by a good reader. I’m glad I did. I vaguely recalled similar news items for snd few of them. A couple of stories were just OK, but they were balanced by a couple that were excellent. Most were quite good. I have already repeatedly explained or justified my total weakness for ‘twist in the tale’ books. There are probably less than dozen stories, some are better than others.
A few are a little too long. My favorite was the Queen’s Telegram. Nov hagns, Donna rated it liked it. I love Jeffrey Archer.

Blind Date Even though I guessed correctly how the story is going to end; I would still rate this as an excellent story. Loved the way it was arcjer. I would rate it extraordinary. Hats off to the real lady in this story. Somehow I left this story lacked the excellence.
Half way through the story I hamgs how this is going to jetfrey. And I was not wrong. I felt Jeffery gave away the surprise factor which could he could have avoided. If hanga line was removed, this qualifies for an excellent story. A Good Eye Though this story is not based on a true incident, it sounds very realistic.

I wish Jeffery had not included this in this book. You may give it a miss or read this one last if time permits. The story promises an excellent ending, but ends on a lower note. No doubt this one is based on a true incident. Politically Correct I would rate this as an excellent story. The story has a much unexpected ending. Better the Devil You Know I would rate this story as good. I expected a better ending, but it was rather disappointing.
No Room at the Inn I would rate this one as an excellent story. This one will make you smile for sure. Read only if time permits. Mar 27, Abhinav rated it liked it Shelves: This collection has 15 stories, of which 10 happen to be inspired from real events. I think this must be the only tereby of his which has so many of these. Sorry to say, most of these inspired tales lack the s 3 to 3. Sorry to say, most of these inspired tales lack the spark that’s often the most cherished element of Archer’s short stories.
He seems to do much more with his imagination than inspiration. Not that all of it is bad. ahd
