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.

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.
What a way to finish!!! Absolutely brilliant series, kept me gripped from start to finish.
"Be prepared to be hooked"
Clever marketing to offer first book free. I am hooked and need to read the next and each one ends on a climatic suspense that drives the next book. I don't mind because I am enjoying each story. Really great narrator although miss the first narrator. Very compelling characters
I liked the fact that the book just kept your interest. A real page turner
This is the third in the series. Absolutely addictive. Each book ends with a cliffhanger which leaves you rushing for the next in the series.
"Another good story"
I dont think this is as strong as the second and I don't really like the cliffhanger ending it seems a little staged.
It however is a fantastic book.
I am addicted to these Chronicles- I am going into books 4 and 5 immediately.
"Yet another gripping listen"
Having never read/listened to a book by Jeffrey Archer I picked up the 1st one and in a short time finished and gripped by it moved onto the second which was not quite as captivating as the first. So with a small concern I started on the third book in the series and was yet again gripped and transported back into the Clifton family. I enjoyed every second listing to how the characters of Giles, Harry and Emma have developed into adults and the next generation of the family is introduced as more life issues and complications are faced and delt with by the family. Can't wait to get my next credit so that I can begin on the 4th offering ....
