I love this story because I hate it, if that makes sense. I do not know whether I am more angry with the wife for being unfaithful (she got her just desserts) or with the 2nd husband for being so mercenary.
Having read many other short stories from Jeffrey in this series, I really didn't enjoy this one. It was just 'ok' with the content. It was rather long, a bit of a drag, and to me, the story was quite clear after having read the first two pages. I found this one rather dull.
While I'm a fan of tales from Jeffry Archer, his short reads to celebrate the year of short stories are amazing too. This is another interesting story, though the end was predictable right from the title.
This story was more tempting, I like the stories which have their foundation on realistic grounds such as this one, perfect vocab everything good, just 1 star penelty for the tedious part somewhere in between.
Fantastic narration as only Sir Archer can do. The story however had no surprises. One could make a guess where it was going. Thus, the enjoyment was only reading Archer’s writing style and the subtle humor.
