Four Warned by Jeffrey Archer

Never stop on the motorway

Diana was going to her friend’s farm house for the weekend. A man in the van followed her all the way on the motorway Diana was trying to get away from him. And she was very scared. Does she make it?
I like this book because it has got good action and I wanted to read it all to see what happened next.
I recommend this book because it is a good story.

Jeffrey Archer is a true master of mystery. I enjoyed this Quick Read and the 3rd short story, “Stuck on You” had me gripped!

I enjoyed these four short stories. Though a tad predictable in a couple of places, there were still surprises and the stories were entertaining.

I was really please by the shortest of the four stories.

All of them contain a life lesson.

My favorite story is “Don’t drink the Water from the taps”…About this I can say ; “he who lives by the sword shall die by the sword”.

It’s a bit boring at the beginning of each story and then it starts to get interesting.
the 1st story was the best.
Yes I would recommend it.

This book contains four different stories, two of which are based on true events. They were all very different but all quite enjoyable, especially the one about the engaged couple. I hadn’t read any Jeffrey Archer books before and this made me wonder how he came to hear of the true stories.
