From the master storyteller comes a masterful collection of fourteen riveting tales of elaborate confidence tricks, political chicanery, immoral behavior, and dangerously illicit affairs, rendered with the breathtaking narrative twists that have become the Jeffrey Archer hallmark.

Here are all new stories that will engross and astonish, peopled with a rich assortment of truly memorable characters: the intoxicating woman who appears to her lover only once every six years; the British diplomat who employs his rather creative -- if not entirely ethical -- financial talents for a greater good; the millionaire who declares himself bankrupt to test the love and loyalties of those closest to him.

This is Jeffrey Archer at the top of his form, as he offers us unique fables of our time and civilization, each one shining a harsh yet hypnotic light on that fascinating, complex being called "human."

My wife and I are ardent followers of Jeffrey Archêr and have read just about everything he has written/published. One complaint we both have with this book though ... the stories are all over too soon!!¨Excellent reading
Nilarius
Very cerebral stories with irony. Often unexpected results. A . Good read. Excellent storytelling and interesting characters. Very much like real life.
Helldor
To Cut a Long Story Short is a collection of unique short stories, each one distinct in its very own way. Each plot is unpredictable and yet familiar because it is logical but Archer gives each ending a twist that causes a gasp that makes the reader hold his breath. A very enjoyable read!
Freighton
4 stars for Archer for an adequate but not stellar continuation of his storytelling form. But the Kindle version is marred by a 0 star editing job. Almost asked for my money back as there are so many punctuation and spelling errors (highly unlikely Archer's responsibility) that it often interfered with the flow of the story and was always an annoying distraction.

I haven't seen the paper copy but if it is the same, Mr. Archer needs to seek a new publisher.

I chose this book because I liked his writing style in the Clifton Chronicles so I figured I would try more of his books. These short stories are fun to read, many with an amusing twist. if you want several quick reads this is the book to get. I will be reading more Archer books in the future.

Can Mr. Archer write a bad book? All these stories are gripping - even the simplest one. And what an apt title!

Still in the midst of reading this compilation of short stories. Mr.Archer is one of my favorite writers and I have read most of his books. I take my time with short stories so I can digest all of the writer's thoughts. I will ultimately finish this book while I read others.
I enjoy these stories - well written and always a twist !
