Publisher's Summary

The second book in Jeffrey Archer’s highly acclaimedThe Clifton Chronicles, The Sins of the Fathertakes the reader on a breath-taking journey from the backstreets of Bristol to the boardrooms of Manhattan.

The book opens in New York, 1939. Harry Clifton, under the new identity of Tom Bradshaw, finds himself arrested for first degree murder. When Sefton Jelks, a top Manhattan lawyer, offers his services for nothing, penniless Harry has little choice but to accept his advice.

After Harry is tried, found guilty and sentenced, Jelks mysteriously disappears, and the only way for him to prove his innocence is to reveal his true identity – something that he has sworn never to do in order to protect the woman he loves.

Meanwhile Emma Barrington, the young woman in question, travels to New York. She has left their son behind in England, having decided she’ll do whatever it takes to find the man she had hoped to marry – unwilling to believe that he died at sea. The only proof she has is a letter - a letter that has remained unopened and unread on a mantelpiece in Bristol for over a year, but the hand is unmistakeable.

In Jeffrey Archer’s epic novel, family loyalties are stretched to their very limits as secrets continue to unravel.

    "Defiantly worth listening to."

    Defiantly worthy of 5 stars on all accounts!
    Can't wait to listen to the next book!
    At first I was a little disappointed with the change in narrator, but soon got used to the new voice, and was totally captivated with the twists and turns of the story.

    "Best of the first 3!"

    Enjoyed the story. Good light weight, Easy read with minimal effort. The first and third book aren't as entertaining. Found that the formulaic story lines got tiring after this book (just as a warning)

    Story
    "Even More Predictable Than Book 1!"
    What would have made The Sins of the Father: Clifton Chronicles, Book 2 better?

    A more original and believable storyline


    What was most disappointing about Jeffrey Archer’s story?

    The "soap opera" way it has been written. I knew every storyline and every recurring character who turned up from Bk 1 before it happened.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator did well - but I was disappointed Roger Allam did not continue the series. Neither can do a proper Bristolian accent though!


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. The first book in this series kept me wanting to know more, even though that storyline was a somewhat predictable, too, which is why I wanted to continue with the series. But this book is just awful. It is so corny in places, and there are so many times when it is obvious that Archer could not even be bothered to do some proper research, that I just could not go beyond the first part.


    Any additional comments?

    Too predictable, inaccurate, unbelievable and ridiculous story lines. Not a book that I would recommend to anyone.
