Jeffrey Archer’s short stories and novels have regaled readers for years. This is a mind blowing collection of 12 short stories by him which I just ended up reading. After a bit disappointed by “Tp Cut a Long Story short”, this collection keeps the high standard of Archer up all the way. With Archer's usual display of panache, humour and tremendous imaginative capability, each story is tightly packed with more richness and humanness. As per my opinion, this is his best collection of short stories yet. This book is incomparable. Like the title suggests each story has a twist that spins the story on a very different circumstances. The stories are gripping and readers keep guessing but in vain. Some of his insights in human nature is penetrating indeed. The plots are unpredictable and the writing is fast paced. Table of contents are: The perfect murder — Clean sweep Ignatius — A la carte — Not the real thing — Just good friends --The steal — Colonel Bullfrog — Checkmate — Honor among thieves — A chapter of accidents — The loophole --Christina Rosenthal. Among all, the best is “The Perfect Murder” in which a husband suspects his wife being unfaithful to him. He kills her after an altercation. He leaves the place. But has he actually killed his wife or someone else. The remaining stories are too good. The stories and deep characterization make this collection consistently entertaining. A must have book for all book lovers.
