The stories from A Quiver Full of Arrows take us on a tour of ancient heirlooms and modern romance, of cutthroat business and kindly strangers, of lives lived in the realms of power. Fortunes are made and squandered, honor betrayed and redeemed, love lost and rediscovered. The stories from A Twist in the Tale lead us on a journey of thwarted ambition, undying passion, and unswerving honor - to places we've never visited and people we'll never forget. Readers will meet an extraordinary cast of diverse characters: a philandering husband who thinks he's committed a perfect murder, a self-assured chess champion who plays a beautiful woman for stakes far higher than cash, a finance minister who needs to crack the secrets of a Swiss bank. From his third collection, Twelve Red Herrings, come a dozen delectable morsels in which human beings are given opportunities to seize, crucial problems to solve, or dangers to avoid. And buried in each is a red herring Archer challenges his readers to uncover.

Tek bir mektupla anlatılan ömürlük bir aşk hikayesi. Hikayen ismi en son satırdan sonra gerçek anlamına kavuşuyor. İncelikle kaleme alınmış, çok duygusal bir metin. Yahudi - Hristiyan karşılaştırması ana temalardan biri olarak kullanılmış. Archer mizah yapabildiği kadar ağlatabiliyor da...
When she drove out into the street the stream of twilight traffic was just about keeping pace with the pin-striped pedestrians who, like worker ants, were hurrying toward the nearest hole in the ground.
The steal

Türkiye’de geçiyor. Halı dokumacılığı ve satışçıları ile ilgili önemli bilgiler var. İki farklı sosyo ekonomik sınıftan gelen çiftlerin Türkiye tatillerini ve o tatilin deyim yerindeyse özel parçasının pazarlığı anlatılıyor. Yedi ölümcül günahtan hırs, kibir ve oburluğa gönderme var hikayede. Paranın gerçek değerli anlamada ne kadar etkili olup olamayacağını bir de siz okuyun. Kısa ama keyifli bir kurgu.
“And how is Louise?” She enquired.
“Blooming” I said. So she knew my wife. But then, not necessarily, I thought. Most American women are experts at remembering the names of men’s wives. They have to be, when on the New York circuit thy change so often it becomes a greater challenge than the Times crossword.
