(4 / 5)
Jeffrey Archer brings us a collection of old fashioned short stories some of which are based on people he has met, and places he’s seen, and some are just from the depths of his imagination. Each story has an interesting twist inconsistent with the foreshadowing set up at the beginning of the stories. There is humor here, and social commentary as well. The author draws the reader into the story world quickly, embroils them in mystery, and entertains at the conclusion. Don’t let the style deceive you. These are thoroughly readable stories.
