Publisher's Summary

The conned: an Oxford don, a revered society physician, a chic French art dealer, and a charming English lord. They have one thing in common. Overnight, each novice investor lost his life's fortune to one man. The con: Harvey Metcalfe. A brilliant, self-made guru of deceit. A very dangerous individual. And now, a hunted man.
With nothing left to lose, four strangers are about to come together, each expert in their own field. Their plan: find Harvey, shadow him, trap him, and penny-for-penny, destroy him. From the luxurious casinos of Monte Carlo to the high-stakes windows at Ascot to the bustling streets of Wall Street to fashionable London galleries, their own ingenious game has begun. It's called revenge, and they were taught by a master.

The best and the cleverest....

Not a Penny More, Not a Penny Less is clever, funny, audacious and a great read from start to finish! This book is the epitome of the Spanish phrase "Revenge is a dish best eaten cold" especially as we've all met people we'd like to do this to. While not a true story - it stems from Archer's first public brush with a serious problem - bankruptcy - and if I recall correctly, NPMNPL not only helped put him on a sound financial footing, it was the start of his writing career. For a witty, amusing read - perfect for a plane, or an afternoon when you really want to be somewhere else - Not a Penny More, Not a Penny Less will take you there.
