Synopsis

Taken from Jeffrey Archer's third collection of short stories, Twelve Red Herrings, comes Cheap at Half the Price, an irresistible, witty and ingenious short read.

Mrs Consuela Rosenheim is beautiful, clever - and, thanks to her three marriages, exorbitantly wealthy. On her birthday, she and Mr Rosenheim find themselves in London; he to conduct important business, and she to choose herself a sumptuous birthday gift. Wandering the streets of Mayfair, she happens upon a magnificent necklace - at an equally superlative price. All she needs to do now is employ her husband's renowned bargaining techniques . . .
