Some of these twelve stories were inspired by the two years Jeffrey Archer spent in prison, including Don’t Drink the Water, the tale of a company chairman who tries to poison his wife while on a trip to St. Petersburg-with unexpected consequences. Witty, suspenseful, sad, surprising, and unforgettable, Cat O’Nine Tales is Jeffrey Archer at his best. Archer plots with skill, and keeps you turning the pages. The economy and precision of Archer's prose never fails to delight.

Comments to eBook Cat O' Nine Tales (Gift edition)
Gaudiker
Jeffrey Archer is a great teller of tales. He did have some moral slips in his personal life, for which he went to prison. He used his experiences in prison, and those he met there, as the setting for some of these short stories. Whether the persons he met in prison were factual, or he made them up, is of no consequence. He makes them seem very real and I will chose to believe he really met them. Reader is excellent. Very important.
Kifer
I don't normally like short stories, but these read like plot lines that didn't have enough "meat" for a full novel -- or they were stories told to him by fellow prisoners that were free-standing. These short stories and the other two short-story books by Archer that I read recently were fun to read. Lots of twists and some great endings.
Rias
Very interesting. Some of the stories were published elsewhere. He is a master storyteller and the variety of themes make good mix.
Madi
I bought it for my husband. He LOVES Jeffrey Archer. He is blind and does all his reading by listening.
Manris
Excellent. Listen to over and over again.
Celen
Great Author and writing skills. I really like all of his work on a consistent basis.
Bliss
These stories are really fabulous. To read Themis like eaves dropping on people's lives and hearing the real thoughts in their heads and what they are really like instead of just what they let you see. They are stories of everyday people, some nice, some nasty and the predicaments they find themselves in. The only problem is they are over just as I am getting really interested in what happens to them next.
I love short stories. There is no space for fillers and the whole thing, from beginning to end, is just meat. Short stories have the added advantage that they come in small, easily digestible pieces. Jefferey Archer must love his job.
