"The ten stories vibrate with drama and the shocks of the unexpected... chillingly effective." (Publishers Weekly)

Deception, blackmail, murder, revenge _these are the themes of stories that move from London to the coast of Spain, from Mauritius to Dublin and the Dordogne. Whether his subject is assassination by stealth, the cruel confidence trick or the cold shock of coincidence, Frederick Forsyth is never less than compulsive,the detail always authentic and evocative.

Ten stories with te master's touch _a brilliantly readable first collection by an incomparable craftsman of suspense.

Reserved for the Winner of the Act of Kindness Sweepstakes.

Journal Entry 4 by raluk68 at București, Wallachia Romania on Monday, December 16, 2013
Short stories come in handy sometimes, especially during the week-end! ;)
This is all-so-English/Irish style! :) In some of the stories the suspense is kept by the `golden-boy`, the main character, being the suspect or the investigator. In these stories I preferred the chief superintendent character ;)

Thank you Bookworm-lady for the opportunity to discover this new author!

This is a collection of short stories with an ironic twist at the end. 2 stories fail to impress as we can see whats coming a mile back. I didn't read all of them...
