"Cat O' Nine Tales" is the sixth collection of irresistible short stories from the master storyteller illustrated by the internationally acclaimed artist, Ronald Searle, creator of "Molesworth". These twelve yarns are so satisfying because they are ingeniously plotted, include richly drawn characters and have deliciously unexpected conclusions. They feature the mad, the bad and the dangerous to know as well as some more poignant and telling characters. Many of these stories came to Archer while he was incarcerated for two years in five different prisons, and so they have a prison theme. Others were inspired since he was released, but all in all they confirm his position as one of the best storytellers alive today. 'Stylish, witty and constantly entertaining... Jeffrey Archer has a natural aptitude for short stories.' - "The Times".


More Description


While incarcerated for two years at five different prisons, Jeffrey Archer picked up several ideas for short stories. They range from a tale of 'The Man Who Robbed His Own Post Office' to the story of a company chairman who tried to poison his wife while on a trip to St Petersburg - both with unexpected consequences.
