In To Cut a Long Story Short, New York Times bestselling author Jeffrey Archer delivers an enthralling new collection of short stories. Listeners will have a difficult time sorting fact from fiction as each story comes complete with intriguing characters, ingenious plotting and Archer's trademark surprise endings.

His mastery of character and suspense is apparent, each word is necessary and each ending will shock and surprise.

To Cut a Long Story Short is Archer at the top of his form. It is stylish, witty, constantly entertaining, and will captivate listeners who will race through each story to find out how it ends.

One of Archer's better collections of short stories and a few of them are based on actual incidents. A great read from a great storyteller.
