Enter the dark and deceiving world of Roald Dahl's stories for adults. Among ten tall tales of deception and cunning you'll read about how revenge is sweeter when carried out by someone else, how to get away with the perfect murder, the old man whose wagers end in a most disturbing payment and the card sharp so good at cheating his life takes a sudden turn.
