I haven't read a Archer book in several years as I have been reading pretty much everything else - Connelly, Leather, Rankin, Cole, Child etc etc BUT after remembering how good 'Not a Penny More, Not a Penny Less' was, I thought I would give him a go again. Thankfully I can say he has lost none of his skill at spinning a wicked tale that keeps you on your toes from beginning to end! The way he constructs likeable and loathsome characters is top drawer. A great yarn and it puts Mr Archer right back up near the top of my favourites list along with Lee Child, Stephen Leather and Ian Rankin, however, as I have exhausted all their books I can see many Archer books being consumed in the next few months!

Again - Awesome!
