No one can weave a web of suspense, deliver a jolt of surprise, or teach a lesson in living like bestselling author Jeffrey Archer. From Africa to the Middle East, and from London to Beijing, Archer takes us to places we’ve never seen and introduces us to people we’ll never forget.

Meet the philandering husband who thinks he’s committed the perfect murder; the self-assured chess champion who plays a beautiful woman for stakes far higher than cash; and the finance minister who needs to crack the secrets of a Swiss bank. Jeffrey Archer’s collection of twelve spellbinding stories will sweep you on a journey of thwarted ambition, undying passion, and unswerving honour that you’ll never forget.

Probably the greatest storyteller of our age.

Cunning plots, silken style . . . Archer plays a cat-and-mouse game with the reader.
