A collection of taut, electrifying tales from the master of international intrigue, #1 New York Times bestselling author Frederick Forsyth…

A wealthy philanderer plots to murder the husband of the woman he loves…A mild-mannered banker faces off in a fight to the death against a monstrous fish…A thief with a plan to hijack tons of French brandy finds that no plan is perfect in practice…and a judge enters a friendly game of poker with two other passengers on a train, only to find himself playing a dangerous hand…

With these ten thrilling short stories of betrayal and blackmail, of murder and revenge, manipulators and machinations, Frederick Forsyth proves once again that when it comes to edge-of-your-seat storytelling, no one else comes close.
