Jeffrey Archer bring to us, a collection of 14 short and adventurous stories, most of them inspired by real events.

This is a wonderful and diverse collection of stories and I had a great time reading all of them. Here are my thoughts on each one.

Unique: 100-word story with a beginning, a middle and an end- 5/5 stars

Who Killed the Mayor?: Hilarious, great ending- 3.5/5 stars

View of Auvers-Sur-Oise: Smart, satisfying- 3.5/5 stars

A Gentleman and a Scholar: Based on Love for literature- 3/5 stars

All’s Fair in Love and War: oddly satisfying, fair game- 3.5/5 stars

The Car Park Attendant: Clever plot as well as characters- 3.5/5 stars

A Wasted Hour: A Favourite, loved it from beginning until the end- 5/5 stars

The Road to Damascus: Another favorite, heartbreaking- 4.5/5 stars

The Cuckold: keeps you guessing, talks about love and betrayal- 4/5 stars

Holiday of a Lifetime: Smart, Loved the ending labeled B, other two weren’t dramatic enough- 4/5

Double or Quits: Gripping, ending could have been better- 3/5 stars

The Senior Vice President: Longest story in the book, entertaining story about the art of deception- 4.5/5

A Good Toss to Lose: Emotional, brave and mildly devastating- 4/5 stars

The Perfect Murder: 100-word story with a beginning, a middle and an end- 5/5 stars

The stories are all different, each highlighting different themes and emotions. The writing style is lucid and kept me hooked.

I would recommend this book to the lovers of short, thrillers.
