"Probably the greatest storyteller of our age"-The Times (London)
This eagerly awaited collection of 14 short stories gives us fascinating, exciting and poignant insights into the people Jeffrey Archer has met and the countries he has visited.
Find out what happens to a hapless young detective who travels to an Italian hillside town to find out "Who Killed the Mayor?" and to a pretentious schoolboy whose discovery of the origins of his father's wealth changes his life.
Revel in the stories of the 1930s woman who dares to challenge the men at her Ivy League university, while another young woman who thumbs a lift gets more than she bargained for in "A Wasted Hour."
These engaging, refreshingly original tales show why critics have compared Archer to Roald Dahl and Somerset Maugham.
"Archer continues his storytelling magic to create characters of spellbinding substance."-Publishers Weekly
"Archer packs a plot with thrills and chills enough for readers to keep turning the pages."-Kirkus Reviews
"Archer knows how to dole out tiny crumbs of suspense right up to the last page."-Washington Post
