Bestselling author Jeffrey Archer, "one of the most captivating storytellers writing today" (Pittsburgh Press) engages the reader in a cunning game of cat-and-mouse as he spins twelve ingenious tales of duplicity, love, murder and revenge, each capped with a startling twist. But be careful, for buried in each tale is a red herring-a wicked diversion that Archer challenges readers to uncover for themselves. Artfully entertaining and suspenseful, this is Jeffrey Archer at his inventive best.
"Outstanding...White-knuckle suspense and witty denouements."
-The Daily Express
"Archer hits the bull's eye with an exemplary collection of short stories."
-Daily Mail (London)
