Description

An English lord requires one more chess piece to complete a set that would be worth a fortune. Another man, an accountant, realizes he's achieved nothing in his life--and sets out to make a fortune before he retires. And then there is the author's own favorite, "In the Eye of the Beholder," about a star athlete who has a fateful run-in with a three-hundred-pound woman. Some of these twelve stories were inspired by the two years Jeffrey Archer spent in prison, including "Don't Drink the Water," the tale of a company chairman who tries to poison his wife while on a trip to St. Petersburg--with unexpected consequences. Witty, suspenseful, sad, surprising, and unforgettable, Cat O'Nine Tales is Jeffrey Archer at his best.

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.
