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.

    "Lost its way"

    I was looking forward to the next chapter of the Clifton Chronicles but cannot help feeling that this was a hurried follow up with a poor plot. When I finished listening to it I felt the storyline had not really progressed much from the end of the first novel and the finale was akin to suspense program, I half expected the narrator to announce " Tune in for the next thrilling episode and find out what happens to Harry next week". Sorry I wanted to enjoy it but it was not possible.

    "fab follow on"

    I really enjoyed the 1st book in the series so was excited when I got my next credit and downloaded the 2nd. i wanted to find out what had happened to Harry and how the lives of the characters further entwined. I was not disappointed and was so eger to find out more then I listened to the entire book within a few days! However the plot whilst great, I thought that the 1st book left you wondering more. this book has ended on a cliff hanger which makes me desperate to start the next, always a sign of a great series!

    "Gripping series. "

    Have listened to both of the first 2 books this week. Narration is excellent. Did notice the difference from book one to two with changing narrator but equally as good. Looking forward to the next book.

    "Hooked!"

    Enjoyed it very much but the story is a little sensational and unrealistic. I prefer a story that is based on real historical facts. However I'm hooked and will read book 3.

    "Great Sequel"

    Enjoyed the continuing story. I love the way the character's time periods overlap and slowly all the gaps are filled. its more about the characters than the war, for anyone looking for a war novel. only criticism: the American accents could have been better
