Description

Master storyteller Jeffrey Archer returns with Tell Tale, a new collection of brilliant short stories. Poignant, engrossing and captivating; this is Archer at his spellbinding best."Stylish, witty and constantly entertaining ... Jeffrey Archer has a natural aptitude for short stories" The TimesNearly a decade after his last volume of short stories was published, Archer returns with his eagerly-awaited, brand-new collection Tell Tale, giving 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.PRAISE FOR JEFFREY ARCHER'S SHORT STORIES"Somerset Maugham never penned anything so swift or urbanely witty as this" Publishers Weekly"The short story has always been Jeffrey Archer's strong suit and here he grips you quickly, puts you on the scent of a mystery, and moves you towards a charming moment of revelation" The Scotsman"Outstanding . . . white-knuckle suspense and witty denouements. An enjoyable, suspense-filled rival to Roald Dahl" Daily Express"If there was a Nobel prize for storytelling, Archer would win" Daily Telegraph

The short story has always been Jeffrey Archer’s strong suit and here he grips you quickly, puts you on the scent of a mystery, and moves you towards a charming moment of revelation The Scotsman
His dialogue is seamless, and even in short form, Archer has a gift for memorable characters. Kirkus Reviews
All are written with Archer’s keen eye for time and place, and his keen ear for dialogue. Another reminder that Archer is as accomplished at writing short stories as he is at writing long-form fiction. Booklist
