"Archer delivers another page-turning, heart-stopping saga, with delightful twists and a surprise ending... readers will surely wait for the next with bated breath." --Publishers Weekly on Only Time Will Tell"What appears at the outset to be a straightforward coming-of-age tale becomes, by the end, a saga of power, betrayal, and bitter hatred...

It was an absurdly enjoyable read." --Daily Telegraph (London) on Only Time Will Tell"Archer can make you wring your hands in anguish and guffaw out loud, all on the same page, and he does in these fifteen ingenious stories." --Star-Ledger (New Jersey) on And Thereby Hangs a Tale"A compelling read...The pace never flags." --Newsday (New York) on A Prisoner of Birth"One of the top-ten storytellers in the world." --Los Angeles Times"Archer is a master entertainer." --Time
