Never Stop on the Motorway (Short Reads)

3.85 based on 157 ratings & 27 reviews on


Taken from Jeffrey Archer's third collection of short stories, Twelve Red Herrings, comes this irresistible, witty and ingenious short read.

Diana, a busy single mother, looks forward to her regular retreat into the countryside to have dinner with friends. A horrible shock she receives as she is driving along the motorway unsettles her – and when she realizes that a black van is increasingly in her rear-view mirror, Diana begins to feel seriously scared. Soon terrified for her life, she does whatever it takes to stick to the stark warning given to motorists: never stop on the motorway . . .
