Summary

Cat O' Nine Tales is the sixth collection of irresistible short stories from this master storyteller. These 12 yarns are so satisfying because they are ingeniously plotted, include richly drawn characters, and have deliciously unexpected conclusions. They feature the mad, the bad, and the dangerous to know, as well as some more poignant and telling characters.

Many of these stories came to Archer while he was incarcerated for two years in five different prisons, and so they have a prison theme. Others were inspired after he was released. All in all, they confirm his position as one of the best storytellers alive.

Fascinating stories from Archer's time in click.

Fascinating short stories from Archer's time in clink, but the last two stories are rather weaker . A memorable book, but a stronger ending would have been welcome.

I enjoyed the stories; narrator was excellent.

I'd read the book when I was much younger and loved the stories. I enjoyed the narration even more.

Stories with unexpected twists!

Anton Lesser is a brilliant narrator! He knows a lot of English dialects and knows how to use them! These stories by Jeffrey Archer could not have got a better performer. If the character is a prisoner as in 'It Can’t Be October Already' or an Italian Art dealer in 'In The Eye of the Beholder' - just perfect. Movies through the ears! ;-)
