Twelve Red Herrings

Twelve Red Herrings



The Pequod Review:

Twelve Red Herrings is Jeffrey Archer’s third collection of short stories. One of them contains the following passage, a remarkable line considering the later allegations against Archer himself for insider trading:

You should look up the new stock in the FT around the middle of next year, and buy yourself a few, because they’ll be what my father would have called “a risk worth taking.”

By the way, Matthew advises me that I’ve just given you what’s termed “inside information,” so please don’t pass it on, as I have no desire to go back to jail for a third time.
