JEFFREY ARCHER AND THEREBY HANGS A TALE PDF

His novels turn and twist with characters that you care about, and his short stories are full of surprises and fun. Not so in this book, I found all the story endings predictable, and littered with pitiable characters; maybe because most of them are alleged to be based on true stories. This poor book was marred further with the dreadful, monotonous narration which lends nothing to the already dull tales. This won? Kane and Abel is my all time favourite. I have read most of his other books including the other short story ones.

He was the luckiest man in the world. She was giving him the shy smile that had so entranced him the first time they met, when a waiter appeared by his side. Jeremy sat back and tried to relax. Jeremy took her advice, and placed twenty pounds on Trumpeter—double his usual wager—before returning to the stands to see the horse romp home at 5—1. He hurried back to the royal enclosure to thank her, at the same time hoping she might give him another tip for the next race, but she was nowhere to be seen.

He was disappointed, but still placed fifty pounds of his winnings on a horse the Daily Express tipster fancied. He searched the paddock full of elegant men dressed in morning suits with little enclosure badges hanging from their lapels, all looking exactly like each other. They were accompanied by wives and girlfriends adorned in designer dresses and outrageous hats, desperately trying not to look like anyone else.

Then he spotted her, standing next to a tall, aristocratic-looking man who was bending down and listening intently to a jockey dressed in red-and-yellow hooped silks. Her eyes settled on Jeremy and he received that same friendly smile once again.

She whispered something to the tall man, then walked across the enclosure to join him at the railing. I hope you won enough to take me to dinner tonight? Jeremy was surprised Arabella had given him a second look, let alone suggested they should dine together that evening. He had been told they were fully booked until he mentioned her name. Jeremy rose from his place long before she joined him.

She took the seat opposite him as a waiter appeared by her side. By the time her Bellini had arrived, Jeremy had begun to relax a little.

She listened intently to everything he had to say, laughed at his jokes, and even seemed to be interested in his work at the bank. Well, he had slightly exaggerated his position and the size of the deals he was working on. Jeremy had never slept with a woman on a first date before. But she called that afternoon and invited him over for supper at her place. From that moment, they hardly spent a day apart during the next month.

He knew he wanted to spend the rest of his life with this beautiful and intoxicating woman, and if stealing a ring was what it took, it seemed a small price to pay. The waiter returned, carrying a silver tray. He placed a stick of chewing gum in his mouth, hoping it would help him to relax. Normally Arabella would have disapproved, but on this occasion she had recommended it. He stood nervously on the pavement and waited for a gap to appear in the traffic, then nipped across the road, coming to a halt outside De Beers, the largest diamond merchant in the world.

This was his last chance to walk away. He knew he should take it, but just the thought of her made it impossible. He rang the doorbell, which made him aware that his palms were sweating. How may I help you? Please step inside. Once they had reached the end of the corridor, the doorman melted away, to be replaced by a tall, middle-aged man wearing a well-cut dark suit, a white silk shirt, and a black tie. Jeremy walked into a small, well-lit room. In the center was an oval table covered in a black velvet cloth, with comfortable-looking leather chairs on either side.

The assistant waited until Jeremy had sat down before he took the seat opposite him. The door opened immediately, and a man in an identical dark suit, white shirt, and dark tie entered the room. A moment later, the door opened and the porter reappeared c arrying a large oak box which he placed reverentially in the center of the table, before leaving without uttering a word. Definitely not the sort of thing he was used to seeing in the window of his local H.

It was a few moments before he fully recovered, and then he remembered Arabella telling him he would be presented with a wide choice of stones so the salesman could estimate his price range without having to ask him directly. Jeremy placed the ring back in the box, and turned his attention to the row above. This time he selected a ring with a circle of sapphires on a white-gold band.

He removed it from the box and pretended to study it more closely before asking the price. Jeremy replaced the ring and turned his attention to a large single diamond that lodged alone in the top row, leaving no doubt of its superiority. He removed it and, as with the others, studied it closely.

It has been certified by the Gemmological Institute of America as a Fancy Intense Yellow, and was cut from the original stone by one of our master craftsmen in Amsterdam. The stone has been set on a platinum band. I can assure sir that it is quite unique, and therefore worthy of a unique lady.
