Collected together in one volume, the complete short stories of Britain's bestselling author, 'the greatest storyteller of our age' -- Mail on Sunday. Millions of readers around the world have relished Jeffrey Archer's short stories.

His first collection, A Quiver Full of Arrows, was acclaimed by The Times as 'stylish, witty and entertaining...Jeffrey Archer has a natural aptitude for short stories.' Publishers Weekly wrote: 'Somerset Maugham never penned anything so swift or urbanely witty as this.' Of his second collection, A Twist in the Tale, the New York Times said: 'Jeffrey Archer plays a subtle cat-and-mouse game with the reader in twelve original stories that end, more often than not, with our collective whiskers twitching in surprise', and The Times concluded that it was 'certain to delight his many fans'. His third, Twelve Red Herrings, was described by the Daily Express as 'outstanding...white-knuckle suspense and witty denouements', and by the Daily Mail as 'an exemplary collection of short stories'. These thirty-six stories show Jeffrey Archer at the peak of his form. His mastery of characterisation and suspense, combined with a gift for the unexpected plot twist, demonstrate why he is Britain's bestselling author, and will provide a feast of entertainment for readers old and new.
