From the internationally bestselling author of Kane and Abel comes four witty and entertaining yet serious short stories with a cast of very human characters. Read by Peter Barkworth. 2 hours.From the Back Cover:
The Grand Pasha was everything that an Englishman should be – except English. So when war was declared he left his preferred homeland for voluntary exile until it was ended.

Post-war England was not quite as he remembered it, but falling in love with a delightful English girl more than compensated and, with huge delight, the Pasha planned the most perfect honeymoon for his beloved…
Jeffrey Archer's masterly storytelling is nowhere better illustrated than in this delicious collection of stories with twists in their tales. From the Pasha to a worthy Scottish industrialist; a backgammon match to a game of cricket, the listener is drawn inexorably in.
