Publisher's Summary

In Jeffrey Archer's First Among Equals, Charles Seymour, second-born son, will never be the earl like his father, but he did inherit his mother's strength - and the will to realize his destiny....

Simon Kerslake's father sacrificed everything to make sure his son's dreams come true. Now it is Simon's chance to rise as high as those dreams allow....

Ray Gould was born to the back streets but raised with pride - a quality matched by a sharp intellect and the desire to attain the impossible....

Andrew Fraser was raised by a soccer hero turned politician. Now it's his turn for heroics, whatever the cost.

From strangers to rivals, four men embark on a journey for the highest stakes of all - the keys to No. 10 Downing Street. Unfolding over three decades, their honor will be tested, their loyalties betrayed, and their love of family and country challenged. But in a game where there is a first among equals, only one can triumph.

    "Good but hard to keep characters straight"

    Long story. Hard to follow the players if you are familiar with the British governmental system.

    "Love it every time I hear it!"

    It is just a great reed. Held.me.spellbound in several readings! I tried to give it 5 stars on everything, but my IPad isn't letting me.

    "Worst Archer yet"

    Coming from a big Jeffrey Archer fan, this was a big disappointment for me. If this was my first Archer book, it would be my last.

    "Not up to his usual standards"
    What disappointed you about First Among Equals?

    I am a great lover of Jeffrey Archer's books but this was very slow and I did not find the characters of interest..


    Any additional comments?

    I will still continue to read his books but hope his next one is better.
