Deception, blackmail, murder, revenge - these are themes of stories that move from London to the coast of Spain, from Mauritius to Dublin. Whether his subject is assassination by stealth, gun-smuggling or the cruel confidence trick Forsyth is never less than compulsive.
Here are eight stories with the Forsyth touch - a brilliant and original collection by an incomparable craftsman of suspense.

Some excellent stories. However, this should really come into the Abridged section as having read the original physical book there are at 2 stories missing from the original book, There Are No Snakes in Ireland is one (in my opinion the best from the original book) and Duty. If these were included it would get 5 stars from me.
Normally I do not like short stories, however this book is a collection of short stories that go from good to incredible. The Emperor and The Careful Man are stories that make life worth living no matter how rough life is going.
I enjoy a good short story and find very few great collections. Here is a great one, with excellent plots and twists. All the tales are good and a couple stand out. 'A Careful Man' and 'The Emperor' are memorable.
"Marvellous - as always"
Always worth listening to. Can we have more from Mr Forsyth? His stories are well researched and elegantly written.
