Nearly a decade after his last volume of short stories was published, Jeffrey Archer returns with his eagerly awaited collection of short stories, Tell Tale, giving us a fascinating, exciting and sometimes poignant insight into the people he has met, the stories he has come across and the countries he has visited during the past ten years.

Find out what happens to the hapless young detective from Naples who travels to an Italian hillside town to find out `Who Killed the Mayor?' and the pretentious schoolboy in `The Road to Damascus', whose discovery of the origins of his father's wealth changes his life in the most profound way.

Revel in the stories of the woman who dares to challenge the men at her Ivy League university during the 1930s in `A Gentleman and a Scholar', and another young woman who thumbs a lift and gets more than she bargained for in `A Wasted Hour'.

These wonderfully engaging and always refreshingly original tales prove not only why Archer has been compared to Dahl and Maugham, but why he was described by The Times as `probably the greatest storyteller of our age'.

Jeffrey Archer is one of the most successful novelists in the world, having sold over 250 million books; books he claims he writes solely with a felt tip pen. In a life as eventful as the pages of any novel, he has produced monumental bestsellers from Kane and Abel to Paths of Glory.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Stylish, witty and constantly entertaining . . . Jeffrey Archer has a natural aptitude for short stories." - The Times

"If there was a Nobel Prize for storytelling, Archer would win." - Daily Telegraph

"The short story has always been Jeffrey Archer's strong suit and here he grips you quickly, puts you on the scent of a mystery, and moves you towards a charming moment of revelation." - The Scotsman

"His dialogue is seamless, and even in short form, Archer has a gift for memorable characters." - Kirkus Reviews

"All are written with Archer's keen eye for time and place, and his keen ear for dialogue. Another reminder that Archer is as accomplished at writing short stories as he is at writing long-form fiction." - Booklist
