Jeffery Archer : Short story books

Jeffery Archer has a knack for the art of storytelling and his books have been bestsellers for years.

One unique feature about his short story collections is the twist in the ending of a story. A reader does not know what Archer really means to tell us until the very end.

Today I’ll be looking at three of his short story books :

  • A Twist in the Tale
  • A Quiver full of Arrows
  • Twelve Red Herrings

All three of these books fall under the genre of fictional mystery.

Examples of this creative and genius writing are in the books – A Twist in the Tale and A Quiver full of Arrows. These books are a collection of 12 or more short stories by Jeffery Archer. None of the stories last more than a few pages but involve jolts of suspense and a web of deception. The stories are built to change the whole narrative in less than a few lines, at the very end.

Twelve Red Herrings was a disappointment compared to the other two. None of the short stories stood out or sparked any enthusiasm. They were very slow and did not have a strong storyline.

Out of the three books, A Twist in the Tale is a recommend.
