[Not a Penny More, Not a Penny Less] is fascinating…. The story contains some interesting character development, a clear and plausible story line, and its share of suspense. Even the ending is not completely expected. Perhaps the reason it all works out so well in the telling is that Mr. Archer really has his heart in it—the book jacket relates that he wrote the book after being bilked of a million dollars in a stock deal. For his first effort, it is well done. Who knows, he may recover his million from the book.
