From the Back Cover:

"ONE OF THE TOP TEN STORYTELLERS IN THE WORLD."
-Los Angeles Times

EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED...
A wrongly convicted murderer exacts a flawless plan of revenge...Headlights in a rear-view mirror tail a female traveler on a lonely stretch of road ...A serial bride secures her future by marrying only the wealthiest of men...An escaped Iraqi with a price on his head pays an involuntary visit to his homeland... A brush with death proves the biggest break of an aspiring artist's career...Two strangers, struck by lust-at-first-sight, consider a myriad of possibilities for where the day will take them.

...AND YOU'LL STILL BE SURPRISED.
BECAUSE NOTHING IS WHAT IT SEEMS.
Bestselling author Jeffrey Archer, "one of the most captivating storytellers writing today" (Pittsburgh Press) engages the reader in a cunning game of cat-and-mouse as he spins twelve ingenious tales of duplicity, love, murder and revenge, each capped with a startling twist. But be careful, for buried in each tale is a red herring-a wicked diversion that Archer challenges readers to uncover for themselves. Artfully entertaining and suspenseful, this is Jeffrey Archer at his inventive best.

"Outstanding...White-knuckle suspense and witty denouements."
-The Daily Express

"Archer hits the bull's eye with an exemplary collection of short stories."
-Daily Mail (London)
