These fourteen stories show Jeffrey Archer's great skills with a wide variety of character, of subject and of setting, but all with that trademark twist in the tail. Every reader will have their own favourites: the choices run from love at first sight across the train tracks to the cleverest of confidence tricks, from the quirks of the legal profession -- and those who are able to manipulate both sides of the Bar -- to the creative financial talents of a member of Her Majesty's diplomatic service -- but for a good cause.
