Not a penny not a penny less

Having read all the major books of Sidney Sheldon I tried "Not a penny more not a penny less" which is my first book of Jeffrey Archer and after reading the book i was  impressed.  When I read the first chapter of the book I jumped to a conclusion that its not the subject Id be interested in. But thanks to my friend who persuaded me to continue reading. And yes, he was right. Never judge a book by just reading the 1st chapter.


Harvey Metcalfe had to struggle a lot to make a living in his early days which obviously had got him money minded. Hired as a messenger boy in U.S Stock exchange he gets to know everything about stock exchange and when luck was on his way he grabbed it and made use of it. What next,, Harvey Metcalfe becomes a millionaire and had got everything he dreamed about. 

The way how he sends his shares go high by making four people buy his shares was amazing. And these four people come to know they were cheated by Harvey Metcalfe and they sort a way out to get their money back. Well this is not an easy job as they were going to face a man who escaped law many times. 


The total money lost by all the four were $1 million and they decide to get their money from Harvey Metcalfe "not a penny more not a penny less". Whats more interesting is Harvey being a cunning business man is never aware that he is being cheated by four people around. I could not keep the book down until I finished. 

So if you are a person who will not miss reading anything good, have a go at this.. Its worth reading..
