The New Collected Short Stories (Paperback) Price: Rs.274

'A writer with a magician-like ability to tell a story'?The Week

'Lord Jeffrey Archer is definitely a storyteller, and one of the best at that ?The Hindu

This Archer's quiver is full of tales.'?Deccan Herald This edition of short stories, bringing together the short stories from three collections by Jeffrey Archer, showcases the master storyteller's skill like never before.

Every reader will have their own favourites: 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 ? and those who are able pint to Pan to manipulate both sides of the Bar ? to the creative financial talents of a member of Her Majesty's diplomatic service ? but for a good cause. In 'Caste- Off, Jamwal and Nisha fall in love while waiting for a traffic light to turn green in Delhi, and in 'Don't Drink The Water., a company chairman tries to poison his wife while on a trip to St Petersburg ? with unexpected consequences ...

The stories held in these pages are irresistible: ingeniously plotted, with richly drawn characters and deliciously unexpected conclusions. Some will make you laugh. Others will bring you to tears. And, as always, every one of them will keep you spellbound.

A SCAM

It is sad that when we buy books so regularly, we are duped into this sort of a buy. 3 old books ina new title is really sad. The author should be told that we will stop reading him. I do not see why I need to write 200 words to review a book that is a combination of 3 old books.

THNX 4R D REVIEW....

I was going to order this book blindly but then I read the reviews and the summary about the booka nd stopped. It is indeed nothing short of a scam to name this book as "THE NEW COLLECTED SHORT STORIES"....

But for someone who's being introduced to Mr. Archer, I believe, it's going to be a favourite...

Not a NEW book

This is just a scam to make money.There are no new short stories but all they have done is compiled and reprinted 3 short stories Books of Jeffery Archer.They are advertising the book as The New collection of short stories which is completely false.

Masterpiece - gripping and gets better for its short story

I have always in awe of Jeffrey Archer for his magnificient spell bouding story telling but I must admit i get intimidated by fat books. Time is a rare commodity in our busy routines and losing connect with the story for want of time is the worst thing to happen. Voila! the short stories scores a perfect ten here. Just like once in a blue moon - this proved to be my adeqaute and brilliant meal to suffice the appetite for sheer great story reading spanning the vast multitude of experience jeff covers in his stories. A great buy. What's more i laid my hands on pre release edition - thanks to flipkart sitting at my home! Also, you can never get tired of this - any time of the year/month/day - short stories will give you company all the way.

Made me happy

This is a good collection. Luckily, this wws my first Jeffery Archer purchase, so all of it was new to me, unlike, many of our fellow readers here, who ended up buying old stories(because of the title).
There's another collection by Jeffery Archer, and am planning to buy that one too.
Just make sure to check out the index/titles page in a bookstore, lest it might include a few stories that you might have already read, as this isn't a new book, just a compilation of his old works.
The choice of stories is however great.
I would totally suggest this to everyone.

If you've read all his books, don't buy this one

If you've read all of his other books, the story, the plots and the characters' nature simply keep repeating.
