'If there was a Nobel Prize for storytelling, Archer would win'Daily Telegraph
The author of the bestselling Clifton Chronicles returns with a collection of fifteen gripping and original short stories for readers to return to time and again.
Find out what happens to the hapless young detective from Naples who travels to an Italian hillside town to solve a murder, and the pretentious schoolboy whose discovery of the origins of his father's wealth changes his life forever. Follow the stories of the woman who dares to challenge the men at her Ivy League university during the 1930s, and another young woman who thumbs a lift and has an encounter she will never forget.
With ingenious plots and vivid characters, these brilliant stories showcase the wit and unforeseen twists Archer is renowned for, and prove why he has been described 'as probably the greatest storyteller of our age' by the Mail on Sunday.
