Deception

(2017)
A collection of stories by

 
 
From Roald Dahl, the master of the sting in the tail, a newly collected audiobook of his darkest stories, read by Richard Griffiths, Andrew Scott, Derick Jacobi, Mark Heap, Juliet Stevenson and Stephen Mangan.

'The cruelest lies are often told in silence....'

Why do we lie? Why do we deceive those we love most? What do we fear revealing?

In these 10 tales of deception, master storyteller Roald Dahl explores our tireless efforts to hide the truth about ourselves. Collected together for the first time, stories include 'My Lady Love', 'My Dove', 'Mildenhall Treasure', 'The Parson's Pleasure', 'Henry Sugar', 'The Umbrella Man', 'The Bookseller', 'Vengeance Is Mine Inc.', 'Lamb to the Slaughter', 'Mr Botibol' and 'Man from the South'.

Dahl understood our deepest secrets, desires and fears, and Deception is one of four books - the rest being Lust, Cruelty and Madness - that explore our hidden selves.
