From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
Jeffrey Archer, the world's greatest story teller, offers twelve ingeniously plotted stories that display his renowned ability for the unpredictable twist. "Twelve Red Herrings" contains a dozen startling tales each of which makes use of misleading clues to surprise the reader. In each story, human beings are put under pressure - how do they react when they have an opportunity to seize, a crucial problem to solve, a danger to avoid? These stories display all the Archer hallmarks of relentless pacing, sophisticated glamour, thigh-slapping humour, and full-blooded eroticism.
