      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      What do the different tags like 'In Stock', 'Available' mean?

      'In Stock'

      Products‘In Stock’ are readily available with seller.

      'Available'

      Products listed as ‘In Stock’ are readily available with seller.

      'Preorder' or 'Forthcoming'

      The product is not released yet. You can however ‘book’ an order for this. Shipping happens only after the product launch.

      'Out of Stock'

      Currently, the item is not available for sale. Use the 'Notify Me' feature to know once it is available for purchase.

      'Imported'

      Sometimes, items have to be sourced by Sellers from outside India. These items are mentioned as 'Imported' on the product page and can take at least 10 days or more to be delivered to you.

      'Back In Stock Soon'

      The item is popular and is sold out. You can however 'book' an order for the product and it will be shipped according to the timelines mentioned by the Seller.

      'Temporarily Unavailable'

      The product is currently out of stock and is not available for purchase. The product could to be in stock soon. Use the 'Notify Me' feature to know when it is available for purchase.

      This product is no longer available because it is obsolete and/or its production has been discontinued.

      'Out of Print'

      This product is not available because it is no longer published and has been permanently discontinued.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    Do not judge a book by its cover.

    I was highly dismayed and annoyed to find out (after receiving the book) that contrary to what the cover says THERE IS NOTHING NEW about this book. Its basically 3 books bound together - All 3 of which I possess. False advertising to say the least!

    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 ...

    SAVED FEW BUCKS

    I was on a verge to punch the order when I read the reviews which made me upset that this is just a collection of old stories (which I have in my library)....bad publicity.....the book summary should detail out this fact...

    STAY AWAY!!!

    This book is very smartly titled "the new collected short srories", traping the readers. Just the collection is new, not the stories. After internet frauds, mail frauds, lottery frauds... this seems to be new kind of fraud.
    DONT BUY THIS BOOK.
    (u can go for it, ONLY IF u have not read any of his 3 books on short-stories)
