Twelve Red Herrings. Jeffrey Archer. HarperCollins, July 1994. First UK edition. Original dust jacket.
Cleverly styled, with richly drawn characters and ingeniously plotted story lines, each of the twelve pieces ends with a delightfully unexpected turn of events.
In each tale, people are given an opportunity to seize, a crucial problem to solve, or a danger to avoid. And buried in each story is another diversion — a red herring.
