During the 1950s and 1960s, the two brothers grow up apart, following similar paths that take them in different directions. Nat leaves college to serve in Vietnam, then finishes school, earns his MBS, and becomes a successful currency dealer. Fletcher, meanwhile, graduates from Yale with a bachelor's and a law degree, going on to distinguish himself as a criminal defense lawyer before becoming a senator.
At various times in their lives, both men are confronted with challenges and obstacles, tragedy and betrayal, loss and hardship, before they both decide to run for governor, unaware they are brothers...

"A master at mixing power, politics, and profit into fiction." (Entertainment Weekly)
"Cunning plots, silken style... Archer plays a cat-and-mouse game with the reader." (The New York Times)
Tripe and very predictable. I'm surprised that this is a Jeffrey Archer novel since I enjoyed the other 3 I've read.
I looked forward to a drive or a walk while listening to this book. Not great literature, but a fun read.
What a total disappointment. I wouldn't be surprised if Jeffery Archer didn't have Danielle Steele assist him in this project. I expected espionage, action, and adventure and received a soap opera. I don't know if I was more annoyed that the book was below par or that I wasted my time finishing it.
Very seldom do I quit reading or listening to a book. I quit this one. Boring and very predictable. It seemed that some very bland sexual scenes were thrown in the middle of a Hardy Boy's novel. Waste of my time and money
I Love mysteries & thrillers. I love snow & hiking in the woods with my dogs & I'm in another world out there with my 1 headphone hooked up.
Absolutely riviting. Didn't want to get out off the car everyday
If I could leave zero stars I would. The only thing I can say is this is a male's version of a Danielle Steele novel. I can't believe I listened to the entire book. Please don't waste your time as I have.
If you love the story-telling style of Rosamund Pilcher, you will definitely love this book. The author immediately transports you into the lives of the characters and keeps you there. I didn't want it to end. (Dear Jeffrey, will there be a sequel?)
