Taken from Jeffrey Archer's third collection of short stories, Twelve Red Herrings, comes this irresistible, witty and ingenious short read. Mrs Consuela Rosenheim is beautiful, clever – and, thanks to her three marriages, exorbitantly wealthy. On her birthday, she and Mr Rosenheim find themselves in London; he to conduct important business, and she to choose herself a sumptuous birthday gift. Wandering the streets of Mayfair, she happens upon a magnificent necklace – at an equally superlative price. All she needs to do now is employ her husband’s renowned bargaining techniques . . .

Shame it was not made clear that this is only one story (about 10 pages) not a collection of short stories by Jeffrey Archer. Feel completely let down by Kindle books. Even the description states Short Reads.
A very, very... light read. I finished it in about 30 minutes. Don't be deceived by the title of "Short Stories" in the plural, or even by the number of pages that the description says are in the book. There is only one story. As an Archer fan I would give this story one point and not recommend it.
