They had only one thing in common - William Lowell Kane and Abel Rosnovski, one the son of a Boston millionaire, the other a penniless Polish immigrant. Two men born on the same day on opposite sides of the world, their paths were destined to cross in the ruthless struggle to build a fortune.
The marvellous story, spanning 60 years, of two powerful men linked by an all-consuming hatred, brought together by fate to save - and finally destroy - each other.

"Archer has a gift for plot that can only be described as genius." (Daily Telegraph)
Yes. It is easy the listen to...good story, good narrator
None I have listened to so far cause its was in a class of its own
William Kane and young Abel
William Kane. He was smart, rich and kind. Qualities you never see together.
I just loved it. The audio book put the movie to shame. I pray I find another book this good.
I may not agree with Archers politics but his storytelling ist op draw Kane and Abel is is opus and Jsdon Culip brought it alive
Abels early live in Poland and Russia his experiences there are described mastefully.
I must admit to siding with Abel character maybe it my socialidt leanings.
I experienced many emotions which is how you know it a great read and listening experience
I have also red listened to Clifton series would recommend you traf them too
"Not as good as some of the the later books,"
It was reasonably enjoyable but not as good as his later books, thanks for entertaining
"An entertaining story that is somewhat predictable"
An entertaining story that is somewhat predictable. It's well read and engaging nonetheless. It's not a memorable story but is worth listening to.
The narrator was very, very good. Best book I've read, and listened to by far.
Will listen to it again!
I loved it! could not stop listening. such a gripping tale full of emotion and excellently narrated.
"Kane and Abel - loved this book"
Kane and Abel - loved this book
Loved this book when I read it many many moos ago
And loved listening to it second time around
I did like the narrator Jason Culp but sometimes found Williams voice quite weak.
Read it years ago, still fab better second time around. On to the sequel now.
"One of the best I've read"
I would rank it as a tie for number one with Game of thrones!
I can't say there is one memorable moments as this book is so fast paced that it is full with memorable moments!
No, I can't say i have
yes, definitely cry
I would like to have hade the time to listen to this in one SITTING, Mesmerising ☆☆☆☆☆
I have loved this book. It's one of those books that's just a story but makes you think as well. I feel it's worth a read, money well spent. 😊 Happy listening. 😊
