    " Very interesting stories. Good to read while travelling:) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peter | 2/7/2014

    " This is one of the best books ever written. I absolutely love "The Emperor" This book left me hungering for another short story fest with Mr Forsyth but alas it was not to be. I have read this book many times and find old hardcover copies to give as gifts. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicole Marble | 2/4/2014

    " 5 short stories - inventive, brilliant and in the spirit of O'Henry. The overall theme of Forsyths stories is Justice - with a big J. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stobby | 1/24/2014

    " A collection of short stories all resulting in some ironic twist in the end. I love the way Mr. Forsyth crafts his tales where fine details are intricately woven around a suspenseful plot. My favorite short was . The only setback in these stories was the predictability of each outcome most likely a result of watching too much CSI. Great writer, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tereza Fuková | 1/22/2014

    " All the krimi stories were really impressive with surprising end. But two last - "A Careful Man" and "Sharp Practice" weren't really krimis and I knew from the beginning how this story ends. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peregrine 12 | 1/21/2014

    " I started this one but didn't get to finish it. However: these stories, written largely in the 1970's, are a LOT of fun! Very exciting read. I will finish this one soon, I hope. (Tip: Check out Forsyth's 'The Afghan' and 'The Veteran'). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachit | 1/15/2014

    " Murgatroyd!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jim Puskas | 1/12/2014

    " Fairly lightweight material as Forsythe goes. A set of forgettable stories, not up to his usual standard. Beyond his novels, Forsythe can produce very engaging shorter works (as proven by a "The Veteran" and "The Art of the Matter") but this set is not of that calibre. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nanda | 12/16/2013

    " the first short story in the book, "no comebacks" will stun you, well, you cant stop reading the others after the 1st one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Radhika | 11/23/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben B | 1/27/2012

    " A collection of wonderful, unforgettable short stories. Some, like the title story, appear to be studies or sketches for full-length novels. Others, such as "Used in Evidence," are perfect gems, with nothing more to be added. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hakkalina | 5/16/2010

    " Interesting stories, in which always there was a twist. My favourite ones are: No Comebacks, There Are No Snakes in Ireland, A Careful Man. This lattest was especially good, I believed that I found out the twist, but (of course) I did not :), instead I was gaped ... oooooo ...

    "

    " Really good, really quick read. The book consists of 10 short stories, most involving some form of revenge. Every story kept my attention, and the writing was clear and interesting.

    My favorite story, by far, is Privilege.

    The book is clever, and definitely worth a read. "

    My favorites "Money with Menaces" and "Used in Evidence" absolutely fantastic.
    No spoilers here!! "
