Summary, etc.:
Here, from the world's greatest storyteller, Jeffrey Archer, are twelve ingeniously plotted stories that display his renowned ability for the unpredictable, but wholly satisfying, twist. Even more inventive than his previous bestselling short story collections, Twelve Red Herrings contains a dozen startling tales, each of which makes use of misleading clues to surprise the reader. You'll read about a woman who fools her husband and her lover on the same day; a leading lawyer's attempt to prove his client is not blind; an honored guest whose expectations are something more than the red carpet; a young painter who finds an unlikely way to call attention to herself; and a woman whose casual ride into the country becomes such a gauntlet of terror that by the last page you'll be shaking with fear. In each of these stories, human beings are put under pressure - how do they react when they have an opportunity to seize, a crucial problem to solve, a danger to avoid?
