Publisher's Summary

1945. The vote in the House of Lords as to who should inherit the Barrington family fortune has ended in a tie. The Lord Chancellor’s deciding vote will cast a long shadow on the lives of Harry Clifton and Giles Barrington. Harry returns to America to promote his latest novel, while his beloved Emma goes in search of the little girl who was found abandoned in her father’s office on the night he was killed. When the General Election is called, Giles Barrington has to defend his seat in the House of Commons and is horrified to discover who the Conservatives select to stand against him. But it is Sebastian Clifton, Harry and Emma’s son, who ultimately influences his uncle’s fate.

In 1957, Sebastian wins a scholarship to Cambridge, and a new generation of the Clifton family march onto the page. After Sebastian is expelled from school, he unwittingly becomes caught up in an international art fraud involving a Rodin statue that is worth far more than the sum it raises at auction. Does he become a millionaire? Does he go to Cambridge? Is his life in danger? Best Kept Secret will answer all these questions, but once again, pose so many more.

    "A great read"

    Narrator was great and the story line was engaging. I immediately wanted to obtain the rest of the series.
    I love the ending. It left the fate of Sebastien undecided (obviously)....

    "Still keeping the interest going."

    It's good enough to get me to buy the fourth in the series. The narrator is like the best soccer referees....you don't notice they are there.

    Story
    "Black and white"

    Perhaps I shouldn't have listened to 4 books from the series, one after the other. I think I may have been a bit jaded by the time I got to this book
    The story is still good, very enjoyable and entertaining. However the contrast between the good and bad characters once again is too obvious, too black and white. Everyone likes a few shades of grey (if not the full 50, right?). So whereas before I have forgiven the almost childlike approach to good and evil, I found it grating on my nerves quite considerably when listening to this
    As always it was superbly read and the accents and voices were great.
    And as previously mentioned the storyline is wonderfully entertaining. My car journeys fly by.
    Another crazy cliffhanger to keep you wanting to come back for more. But for me the spell has been broken, at least for now. I will switch to something a little more tonal and give the high contrast black and white Clifton Chronicles a rest.
