    Kane & Abel for a new generation!!

    They had only one thing in common - William Lowell Kane and Abel Rosnovski, one the son of a Boston millionaire, the other a penniless Polish immigrant. Two men born on the same day on opposite sides of the world, their paths were destined to cross in the ruthless struggle to build a fortune.

    The marvellous story, spanning 60 years, of two powerful men linked by an all-consuming hatred, brought together by fate to save - and finally destroy - each other.

    Archer hits the spot

    I think this is one of the books that launched the Author, I am not sure, but it is a damn good listen. It is a classic both in content and context. ..Show More »

    Hers was the ultimate ambition...The magnificant story of love and politics that continues the saga of Kane and Abel. The titanic battle between two men obsessed with destroying each other follows on into the next generation. Florentyna Rosnovski, Abel's daughter, inherits all her father's drive, but none of his wealth. A woman gifted with beauty and spirit, but above all with indomitable will, she sets out in pursuit of an ambition that dwarfs both Kane and Abel, as she battles for the highest office of all...

    Disappointing half book was a recap of Kain & Abel

    I eagerly purchased this sequel to Kain and Abel. BUT the first 23 chapters (over half the book) was devoted to a condensed version of Kain and Abel, ..Show More »

    Not Enough Meat

    This book was weird. I don’t mean the storyline or the plot, that was good enough, but I mean the way it was written. I felt like I was reading an o..Show More »

    Florentyna Kane has finally become the first woman president in America. But on the very day that she is sworn into office, powerful forces are already in motion to take her life. The FBI investigates 1000s of false threats every year. This time, a reliable source has tipped them off about an assassination attempt. One hour later, the informant and all but one of the investigating agents are dead. The lone survivor: FBI Special Agent Mark Andrews. Now, only he knows when the killers will strike. But how can he alone unravel a ruthless conspiracy - in less than one week?

    Why is this Book 3?

    I really enjoyed this book (it was better than Book 2) but I’m having a hard time seeing it as Book 3 of a trilogy.

    It’s a story of a rookie ..Show More »
