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.

Although I thought this short story was very good I must admit to feeling rather cheated. The description of the book said 'short reads' and I assumed it was a collection of short stories, so to find it to be just one short story I was extremely disappointed.

great read, but don't buy it if you have read 12 red herrings, should have looked inside first. Has a great thought process, but then he may move in these circles?

It's a short read! I don't know whether all of the offering didn't download or something, but it sure is short and not up to much really. I thought it was a book of short stories. It isn't.
