Bad Narration - Predictable and Dull Stories

Jeffrey Archer is one of my delightful sins, politics and perjury aside, he writes a fantastic tale. His novels turn and twist with characters that you care about, and his short stories are full of surprises and fun. Not so in this book, I found all the story endings predictable, and littered with pitiable characters; maybe because most of them are alleged to be based on true stories. This poor book was marred further with the dreadful, monotonous narration which lends nothing to the already dull tales. This won?t put me off listening to more Archer books, he can be forgiven one bad book, but let?s hope this is the last.

Not his best

I love Archer books. Kane and Abel is my all time favourite. I have read most of his other books including the other short story ones. I just did not enjoy this one as much. The first story is good. I can't put my finger on it but I just didn't enjoy it.
