The latest short-story collection from Britain's bestselling writer, 'the greatest storyteller of our age'. The latest collection from the master storyteller. The fourteen -- all new -- stories show Jeffrey Archer's great skills with a wide variety of character, of subject and of setting, but all with that trademark twist in the tail. Every reader will have their own favourites: the choices run from love at first sight across the railway tracks to the cleverest of confidence tricks, from the quirks of the legal profession to the creative financial talents of a member of Her Majesty's diplomatic service. One of the most intriguing describes a woman who only appears to her lover every six years. And one of the most powerful is the story of a wealthy man who declares himself bankrupt in order to discover which of his family and friends will support him. The last story, 'The Grass is Always Greener', is possibly the best piece Archer has written. To Cut a Long Story Short is Jeffrey Archer's fourth story collection, and shows him at the top of his form.
