1945. The vote in the House of Lords as to who should inherit the Barrington family fortune has ended in a tie. The Lord Chancellor’s deciding vote will cast a long shadow on the lives of Harry Clifton and Giles Barrington. Harry returns to America to promote his latest novel, while his beloved Emma goes in search of the little girl who was found abandoned in her father’s office on the night he was killed. When the General Election is called, Giles Barrington has to defend his seat in the House of Commons and is horrified to discover who the Conservatives select to stand against him. But it is Sebastian Clifton, Harry and Emma’s son, who ultimately influences his uncle’s fate.
In 1957, Sebastian wins a scholarship to Cambridge, and a new generation of the Clifton family march onto the page. After Sebastian is expelled from school, he unwittingly becomes caught up in an international art fraud involving a Rodin statue that is worth far more than the sum it raises at auction. Does he become a millionaire? Does he go to Cambridge? Is his life in danger? Best Kept Secret will answer all these questions, but once again, pose so many more.

"Very basic writing"
Archer's writing is extremely basic and has become rather tedious. There is nothing lyrical or poetic about it, although he can spin a rather good yarn. I only purchased this book as i thought it was a trilogy and I wanted to know the outcome. However we have been left once again on a cliff edge, but this time I think I may just remaining teetering on it as I'm loathe to spend any more money on Mr Archer. Especially when each volume appears to be rather thin, truly spinning as much out of the yarn as possible.
Started a little slow and I was wondering when the kick would come, excellent , looking forward to the next one.
Can't wait to start the next book. The Clifton Chronicles are well worth reading. And now to start the next one!
Shocking, intriguing and excellent plot development. The main characters are well considered and endearing and the bone-chilling villains wont be easy to forget.
Gripping tale, right to the very end. narration is first class can't wait to start the next one
"Enjoying the chronicles"
Well another cliff hanger. Looking forward to the next book in the series. Great read.
really enjoyed this got a bit boring in the middle but then something grabs you and your back into the story.
cliff hanger! dam!
I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy this series, but I now can't wait to read the next book! An unexpected ending, making you want to know what happened next. None of these books could really be listened to on their own. Well written, as ever, by Jeffery Archer and well narrated.
"Clifton chronicles "
not as good as the first two but still a good read. I look forward to the next in the series
"Another fantastic episode!"
The Chronicle books just get better abd audible really sucks you into the story and the characters. I've never read so many books since I joined audible and I am hooked on Jeffrey Archer books.
