The Collected Short StoriesA collected edition of the master story teller's short stories. This brand new edition brings together three of Jeffrey Archer’s classic collections of short stories. Every reader will have their own favourites, the choices run from an imprisoned man who is certain that his supposed murder victim is very much alive, to a female driver pursued relentlessly by a menacing figure in another vehicle. An off-hand remark is taken seriously by a Chinese sculptor in one tale, while a British diplomat unexpectedly becomes the owner of a priceless work of art in another and over three of the stories, discover a hauntingly written, atmospheric account of two undergraduates at Oxford in the thirties, a tale of bitter rivalry that ends in a memorable love story. These stories are packed full of the master story teller’s unexpected twists, richly drawn characters and ingenious, witty denouements. Some will make you laugh, others will bring you to tears.
