Deception, blackmail, murder, and revenge - these are the themes of stories that move from London to the coast of Spain, from Mauritius to Dublin to Dordogne. Whether his subject is assassination by stealth, the cruel confidence trick or the cold shock of coincidence, Frederick Forsyth
is never less than compulsive, the detail always authentic. Ten stories with the master's touch - this is a brilliantly readable first collection by an incomparable craftsman of suspense.
