The Expert Witness'

The latest, and best, short story collection from the master storyteller. These – all new – stories show Jeffrey Archer's great skills with a wide variety of character, of subject and of setting, but all with that wonderful twist to the tale.

Two old friends find themselves on opposite sides in a murder case; an elderly man who doesn't know which of his relations to leave his fortune to, declares himself bankrupt to find out who really cares about him – only to be surprised by the results; a member of Her Majesty's Diplomatic Corps makes use of his previously unsuspected financial acumen in a good cause; a man listens in on a conversation on a crossed line, which changes his whole life; a woman's husband finds her reading a letter from another man and finally the story of two brothers with very different characters.

This collection shows Jeffrey Archer at the top of his form. Wonderfully satisfying to listen to and fascinating to discover how many are based on true incidents that Jeffrey Archer has witnessed or heard.
