Publisher's Summary

A man calls unexpectedly on his mistress and sees another man leaving her flat. Accusing her of being unfaithful, he quarrels with her and strikes her. She dies. Leaving unseen, he tips off the police so that the other man is arrested and charged. Has he achieved "The Perfect Murder"? A tantalising opening to A Twist in the Tale.

Consider also: a wine-tasting with a bizarre difference, a game of sex with a sexy stranger, a violent row in a golf clubhouse bar, a rivalry founded on eating cornflakes...just some of the openings in this cunningly constructed, fast-moving, entertaining set of stories.

Masterfully done

As expected, the stories carried more information than it did thrill. More drama than suspense. Archer's short stories always appear to be tales of his personal experience & not entirely fictional. Exciting through & through.

Disappointed

Not my favourite Archer read. It could be because of the short story format that the tales never get going for me.
