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.

    "Weak"

    I enjoyed the build up of characters in the first book of this series. However I struggled to keep motivated in this second book. It was not narrated as well either. The characters all seemed So predictable in the story line.
    The cliff hanger right at the end was also something I knew would happen but it won't encourage me to carry on with the next book in series just to see the next plot?!
    If you like light entertainment and trilogies then it's probably for you but I like spit and grit in my stories and that's not the case in this book.

    Story
    "completely ruined by the change of narrater"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    no.. the male narrater is rubbish..


    What didn’t you like about Alex Jennings and Emilia Fox ’s performance?

    alex Jennings characters where awful. complete change from the first book. I do wish these money greedy companies would stop changing narrators during a series..


    Do you think The Sins of the Father: Clifton Chronicles, Book 2 needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    it has a follow up but I will not be buying it as alex Jennings is the narrater


    Any additional comments?

    the first book was very good and the story in this one was as good, however the narration in this one is awful so I will go no further with this series.. shame really as I think the story will improve from book to book.. mr archer and whoever decides to try and save money by choosing cheap actors, should be ashamed of their underhand actions.. a pity neither of them care about the people that give them money

    "Really good"

    The 1st book was a freebie from audible and I would not have picked a Jeffery archer book, but thought I'd give it a go. How pleased I am I have just finished the 2nd audible book and can't wait to start the 3rd plus the rest of the series. So many twist and turns, great characters and beautifully read. Best book for long time

    Story
    "More Janet and John"
    What did you like best about The Sins of the Father: Clifton Chronicles, Book 2? What did you like least?

    The best part was reaching the end of the book, demonstrating I still have a sense of humour. The part I liked least was the plot and the simplistic writing style.


    What will your next listen be?

    American Gods by Neil Gaiman, and I have almost finished it. What a difference.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    None, they were all as bad as each other.


    Was The Sins of the Father: Clifton Chronicles, Book 2 worth the listening time?

    No way; I felt sorry for the narrators whom made the best of a really bad job.


    Any additional comments?

    This author will not remain on my reading list.

    "6 stars"
    What did you like most about The Sins of the Father: Clifton Chronicles, Book 2?

    It is well written and well read. The best part was when they corrected the mistake in book one about clour blindness! Just at the right moment.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything , yes truly everything.


    What about Alex Jennings and Emilia Fox ’s performance did you like?

    They portray each character as I would


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes but it took us 2 days


    Any additional comments?

    I just wish I could afford to buy them all , but have to wait for my credit as so expensive.
