Overview

A collection of taut, electrifying tales from the master of international intrigue, #1 New York Times bestselling author Frederick Forsyth…

A wealthy philanderer plots to murder the husband of the woman he loves…A mild-mannered banker faces off in a fight to the death against a monstrous fish…A thief with a plan to hijack tons of French brandy finds that no plan is perfect in practice…and a judge enters a friendly game of poker with two other passengers on a train, only to find himself playing a dangerous hand…

With these ten thrilling short stories of betrayal and blackmail, of murder and revenge, manipulators and machinations, Frederick Forsyth proves once again that when it comes to edge-of-your-seat storytelling, no one else comes close.

Praise

“Diverting…should surprise and delight Forsyth fans.”—The New York Times Book Review

“Spellbinding…Ten Forsyths for the price of one. Who could ask for anything more?"—Fort Worth Star-Telegram
 
"Forsyth is a first-class narrator—instantly sketching in characters, tossing off perfect dialogue, creating mood and atmosphere…A crisp, solid treat.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Few writers do physical action any better than Forsyth…These stories are very good value, creating an appetite for more…A warming bedside companion.”—Los Angeles Times
