The fourteen all new short stories from the master storyteller show Archer's great skills with a wide variety of character, of subject and of setting, but all with that trademark twist in the tail.

Every reader will have their own favorites: the choices run from love at first sight across the train tracks to the cleverest of confidence tricks, from the quirks of the legal profession to the creative financial talents of a member of Her Majesty's diplomatic service. One of the most intriguing describes a woman who only appears her lover every six years. And one of the most powerful is the story of a wealthy man who declares himself a bankrupt in order to discover which of his family and friends will support him - only to be shocked by the results.
