Publisher's Summary

In Hartford, Connecticut, in the late 1940s, a set of twins is parted at birth, not by accident. Nat Cartwright goes home with his parents, a school teacher and an insurance salesman, while his twin brother begins his days as Fletcher Davenport, son of a multi-millionaire and his society wife.

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.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Pure entertainment."

    Another excellent, entertaining story by Jeffrey Archer. I was sorely disappointed when I realized there was an unabridged version as I wanted it to last longer.

    I listened to the audiobook on my way to and from work and found myself sitting in the car for a few moments to get as much in at the last minute.

    Excellent listen and I'm now a confirmed Jeffrey Archer fan.
