In these 12 surprising stories, Martin Jarvis's expert style and sleek British accent cleverly unleash significant motives and pace clues that lead to unexpected plot twists. All the stories reflect the unexpected as the elements in them are flipped on their heads: Love's mirror image is revenge, greed's flip side is fraud, delayed choice breeds jealousy, and duplicity becomes treason. Jarvis's voice rises slightly at the precise point in each story when an ending takes a surprising turn. This technique redefines the twist in the tale. Each story explores one of 12 motives, from greed to the desire for control. Ten stories are based on true incidents Archer cunningly reconstructed. Together, Archer and Jarvis illustrate the distorted looking glass of human nature. A.H. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE/JULY 05]
