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.

    Story
    "Time warp"

    I recently discovered J.Archer and love his writing style. This is very different from anything I've ever listened to. I started with this book, accidentally, and it hooked me quickly. Set just after the war around the wealthy Barringtons and friend Clifton it actually follows the later through life. This book starts when he is mid-late 20's (my estimate). The writing absorbed me and the narration was perfect for the period and characters. I've now listened to books 1 & 3 and purchased book 4.

    "Fantastic"

    Storytelling at its absolute best....you just want to keep listening! The only downside is when the book finishes and you know that you are another chapter of the chronicles down.

    "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)
