I do like the plot although at times I find it all a little far fetched. Never the less the story certainly has held my concentration and Jeffrey Archer is certainly a master of the craft of story telling. Each book leaves you with a cliff hanger ending so that you are compelled to read the next installment in this story.
I have read a few of Jeffrey Archer's other books which of course include his master novel, Kane and Abel followed by The Prodigal Daughter. This series is similar in that it also takes place through a number of years, starting before the first world war and moving through the 2nd world war. It takes place in England and also New York. I recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys a good story.
