Tell Tale Summary

Tell Tale by Jeffrey Archer

Author of the bestselling Clifton Chronicles, Jeffrey Archer, gives us fourteen gripping and rewarding short stories for readers to return to time and again.

Find out what happens to the hapless young detective from Naples who travels to an Italian hillside town to solve a murder and the pretentious schoolboy whose discovery of the origins of his father's wealth changes his life forever. Follow the stories of the woman who dares to challenge the men at her Ivy League university during the 1930s, and another young woman who thumbs a lift and has an encounter of a lifetime.

From the master of the short story, the refreshingly original stories in Tell Tale prove why Archer has been described by the Mail on Sunday as `probably the greatest storyteller of our age'.

Tell Tale Reviews

Stylish, witty and constantly entertaining . . . Jeffrey Archer has a natural aptitude for short stories * The Times *
If there was a Nobel Prize for storytelling, Archer would win * Daily Telegraph *
The short story has always been Jeffrey Archer's strong suit and here he grips you quickly, puts you on the scent of a mystery, and moves you towards a charming moment of revelation * The Scotsman *
His dialogue is seamless, and even in short form, Archer has a gift for memorable characters. * Kirkus Reviews *
All are written with Archer's keen eye for time and place, and his keen ear for dialogue. Another reminder that Archer is as accomplished at writing short stories as he is at writing long-form fiction. * Booklist *
