Summary (From the publisher):

An English lord requires one more chess piece to complete a set that would be worth a fortune. Another man, an accountant, realizes he's achieved nothing in his life, and sets out to make a fortune before he retires. And there is the author's own favorite, "In the Eye of the Beholder", about a star athlete who has a fateful run-in with a three-hundred-pound woman. Some of these twelve stories were inspired by the two years Jeffrey Archer spent in prison, including "Don't Drink the Water", the tale of a company chairman who tries to poison his wife while on a trip to St. Petersburg, with unexpected consequences.
