9780140176629: Jeffrey Archer: Stranger Than Fiction

This is a biography of Jeffrey Archer - a man of overwhelming ambition. After Oxford - where he never got a degree - he set up a hugely successful fund raising operation. MP at 29, bankrupt at 34, he had to resign his seat. Then he began his career as a novelist, with Thatcher the political comeback and Deputy Chairmanship of the Conservative Party. Then brought low again, this time by Monica Coghlan in 1986.

From the Back Cover:

The book William Hague ignored but now wishes he had not. Jeffrey Archer's life is a carnival of risk, bluff and naked ambition, all twisted by – in the words of his wife Mary – Archer's 'gift for inaccurate precis'. This brilliant biography lays bare the facts behind Archer's rise, fall, rise and fall again. It has been completely revised since revelations of Archer's procurement of a false alibi to support his libel action against the Daily Star and News of the World brought a swift end to his mayoral ambitions.

Michael Crick is a biographer, writer and journalist. He has worked for Newsnight, a range of national newspapers and his biographies of Michael Heseltine and Jeffrey Archer have been widely and very favourably reviewed. In the words of Adam Raphael, 'once he [Crick] has got his teeth into something he's determined to find out the truth'.
