Tell Tale [9781447252290]

(1 review) Write a Review

Nearly a decade after his last volume of short stories was published, Archer returns with his eagerly-awaited, brand-new collection.

Tell Tale gives us a fascinating, exciting and sometimes poignant insight into the people he has met, the stories he has come across and the countries he has visited during the past ten years.

Find out what happens to the hapless young detective from Naples who travels to an Italian hillside town to find out Who Killed the Mayor? and the pretentious schoolboy in A Road to Damascus, whose discovery of the origins of his father's wealth changes his life in the most profound way. Revel in the stories of the 1930s' woman who dares to challenge the men at her Ivy League University in A Gentleman and A Scholar while another young woman who thumbs a lift gets more than she bargained for in A Wasted Hour.

These wonderfully engaging and always refreshingly original tales prove not only why Archer has been compared by the critics to Dahl and Maugham, but why he was described by the Times as probably the greatest storyteller of our age.


AUTHOR: Jeffrey Archer, whose novels and short stories include Kane and Abel, A Prisoner of Birth and Cat O' Nine Tales, has topped the bestseller lists around the world, with sales of over 275 million copies.

The author is married to Dame Mary Archer, and they have two sons, two grandsons and a granddaughter.

    Conned

    Posted by Cliff on 9th Dec 2017

    Nice short stories but feel a bit conned since the last four chapters are devoted to 'treating us' to the first four chapters of his new book due to be published in 2018. Soooo.....if I buy his new book due to be published in 2018, I will have paid to read some of the same stuff twice - and sadly, probably have forgotten some of the details by then so wasted my time and have to re-read stuff which will be mostly familiar. Not really interested in buying half a book again !
