Publisher's Summary

William Lowell Kane and Abel Rosnovski, one the son of a Boston millionaire, the other a penniless Polish immigrant, born on the same day near the turn of the century on opposite sides of the world are brought together by fate and the quest of a dream. Two men, ambitious, powerful, ruthless, are locked in a relentless struggle to build an empire, fueled by their all-consuming hatred. Over sixty years and three generations, through war, marriage, fortune, and disaster, Kane and Abel battle for the success and triumph that only one man can have.
©1979, 2009 Jeffrey Archer

too predictable

the book is abriged and thus very short. If I had the longer version I would enjoyed developed story lines. this version is choppy.

Great story and amazingly narrated.

This is one of my favorite books. I read it over 20 years ago. Once I started to read it, it was truly one of those books that is hard to put down. There is never a dull moment that most storys have. I decided to get it on audio recently to relive the story of Kane & Abel and all i can say is WOW!!! Jeff Harding is so talented at telling a story. I found my self once again reliving this as if I had never read it before. I would recommend this as a must have in any fans collection!
