I really enjoyed this audio book! The short stories had a nice range of subjects and interesting characters. The reader, Bill Wallace, had the most wonderful voice and used it with great talent and finesse as he did the voices of different characters and accents. I would listen to him read any book!
This version is unabridged and would be great for a long car trip or a series of short ones. I enjoyed the wry wit Archer interjects into his writing.
Jeffrey Archer has an incredible ability to draw you into a story and then hit you with a surprise ending like no other author I know of. Love his work.
Short story afficionados will love this compilation.

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."
