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.

"The Clifton Chronicles.....Book 2 "
This series "The Clifton Chronicles" by Jeffrey Archer has had me hook line & sinker since the very start !!! As with ALL my reviews, I DON'T do spoilers......It's enough to say that whether you're a Jeffrey Archer fan......Or not, This series is a MUST for anyone who appreciates GREAT Literature !!!!
Enjiyed book.Admired detailed knowledge of author and performances of narratoes.
Cant wait to read the next one in saga.
"A great continuation!"
The second in the series of the Clifton Chronicles begins with Harry in danger of being imprisoned for Murder. Again I was gripped to the story so much so that I finished this book less than 24 hours later and I love it. I am eager to find how the lives of Giles and Harry will turn out in light of recent events. The story continues. I award four stars this time because I felt some parts of the story were a bit slow, this does not take away from the author though. A brilliant writer!
"Archers money spinner."
How does Mr Archer do it?
Again I am lured in by the easy listening, of the Barrington, Clifton saga.
The continuation of a well woven story, all completed in two days (I do a lot of driving) leaves me wanting to know more.....
Thank you, but now I will have to buy book three!
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.
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.
"The story continues..........."
No, but only because I'm looking forward to the next episond
He writes a good story
"A great sequel, very enjoyable"
The Clifton story continues, a great listen, with a story which twists and turns. Top stuff
I love Jeffrey Archers work, it keeps you interested throughout. make no mistake once you have started this saga you will want to stay til the end.
