Praise for And Thereby Hangs a Tale

Praise for the Short Stories of Jeffrey Archer

“Jeffrey Archer plays a subtle cat-and-mouse game with the reader in twelve original short stories that end, more often than not, with our collective whiskers twitching in surprise.”
---The New York Times

“Outstanding... white-knuckle suspense and witty denouements. Enjoyable, suspense-filled rival to Roald Dahl.”
---Daily Express (London)

“Stylish, witty, and constantly entertaining . . . Jeffrey Archer has a natural aptitude for short stories.”
---The Times (London)

“Archer hits the bull’s-eye with an exemplary collection of short stories.”
---Daily Mail (London)

“The economy and precision of Archer’s prose never fails to delight. The criminal doesn’t always get away with his crime and justice doesn’t always prevail, but the reader wins with each and every story.”
---Publishers Weekly
