Cat O' Nine Tales Book Description

"Cat O' Nine Tales" is the sixth collection of irresistible short stories from the master storyteller illustrated by the internationally acclaimed artist, Ronald Searle, creator of "Molesworth". These twelve yarns are so satisfying because they are ingeniously plotted, include richly drawn characters and have deliciously unexpected conclusions. They feature the mad, the bad and the dangerous to know as well as some more poignant and telling characters. Many of these stories came to Archer while he was incarcerated for two years in five different prisons, and so they have a prison theme. Others were inspired since he was released, but all in all they confirm his position as one of the best storytellers alive today. 'Stylish, witty and constantly entertaining ...Jeffrey Archer has a natural aptitude for short stories.' - "The Times".

Jeffrey Archer is the master story teller. “Cat O' Nine Tales: And Other Stories” is a delightful collection of twelve stories. Archer claims that nine out of twelve stories are written from the stories of his fellow prisoners during his incarceration in jail and the last three after he released from jail. He listened all the experiences of the inmates and after adding his own embellishment to each, he penned all those in stories. I prefer to read short stories as these don not compel you to finish it in one read. You can read one story at one time. For me, this is the best work from Jeffrey Archer. Jeffrey Archer has you on the edge of your seat with some of these tales. All the stories are plotted skillfully and adroitly. All these provide with more pleasure to the reader just like his previous short stories, A Twist In The Tale- Twelve Short Stories and Twelve Red Herrings. The adding feature is the amusing and engaging drawings of Ronald Searle. The stories are quick, easy to read and attention grabber. The stories actually showcase Archer's talents as a craftsman of short stories. He is the genius. A light and engaging read. This excellent Cat O’ Nine Tales will be on everyone short list for crime caper anthology.
