Forsyth, The Master Storyteller, Presents Five Brilliantly Ingenious Tales of Murder, Justice, Intrigue and Revenge

A miracle in war-torn Siena that begins with the persecution of a young nun in the turbulent days of the 16th century and culminates in the bitter German retreat from Italy; a drug-smuggling heist on an international flight where the knock are only one step ahead of the smugglers; a ruthless urban murder, where a brilliant QC decides to defend the killers, resulting in a startling act of justice; an incandescent art scam at a famous London auction house, and a brilliantly plotted revenge that shatters the elegant world of Old Masters - each story is a remarkable tour de force.

And above all here is a brilliant novella, Whispering Wind, which begins with the single survivor of Custer's Last Stand at the battle of Little Big Horn. It follows the defense from rape and murder of a Cheyenne girl and a flight across the mountains and forests of the West, ending in a savage present-day manhunt in the wild lands of Montana. Whether his theme is international espionage, miraculous events in war-torn Italy, or a Customs drug bust, these stories all share Forsyth's trademark for compulsive storytelling, his clinical eye for authentic detail and an unnerving sense of suspense. Not since his New York Times best-selling story collection No Comebacks has he crafted such remarkable work. Five breathtaking tales from the greatest storyteller of them all.

    " I genereally do not like short stories but this is the exception. 5 separate short stories; all very different plots with all surprise endings. Great reading. "

    " I listened to this collection of five long stories by Frederick Forsyth on an audiobook in the car. I was on my road trip when I started it, but when I got home it was early in the book. I don't drive much, so it has taken a long time to finish, and now that I've finished the fifth story I don't really remember the first, except that I think I liked it. This book certainly made me enjoy my times in the car more, both because they are engaging stories and because they are read by three first-rate narrators: Patrick McNee, Bruce Boxleitner and Christopher Kazenov. I especially enjoyed McNee's unusual speaking voice, but all three were good. The final story, about the supposed survivor of Custer's Last Stand, becomes a fantasy about halfway through. This is a departure from other things by Forsyth that I've read, and it's pretty silly, really. But I certainly got caught up in it. These stories often had me on the edge of my seat, which I suppose is OK when one is driving. "
