Publisher's Summary

On the heels of the international best seller Only Time Will Tell, Jeffrey Archer picks up the sweeping story of the Clifton Chronicles….

Only days before Britain declares war on Germany, Harry Clifton, hoping to escape the consequences of long-buried family secrets, and forced to accept that his desire to marry Emma Barrington will never be fulfilled, has joined the Merchant Navy. But his ship is sunk in the Atlantic by a German Uboat, drowning almost the entire crew. An American cruise liner, the SS Kansas Star, rescues a handful of sailors, among them Harry and the third officer, an American named Tom Bradshaw. When Bradshaw dies in the night, Harry seizes on the chance to escape his tangled past and assumes his identity.

But on landing in America, he quickly learns the mistake he has made, when he discovers what is awaiting Bradshaw in New York. Without any way of proving his true identity, Harry Clifton is now chained to a past that could be far worse than the one he had hoped to escape.

    "a bad author has to bribe a lstener for the end"

    to sell books, he obviously has to write books that don't end so he can sell the next one. if he were good enough an author his books could stand alone and would sell based on authorship.

    I most enjoy reading spiritual books to nourish my soul; psychology books to enhance my profession; & psych thrillers for fun escapism.

    "As compelling as the first book in the series"

    This is my third book by Jeffrey Archer, my second in the present series. And boy am I hooked, something that I've rarely experienced with a single author (with the exception of certain classical writers). Narration continues to be spot on.

    "Archer is a master story teller"
    Where does The Sins of the Father rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have never been disappointed reading or listening to anything written by Jeffrey Archer. This is the second book in a series and both have been truly outstanding.

    "My newfound favorite series"

    Oh my goodness, this is the best book series ever! And I found it by accident! I'm a detail oriented person and the way Jeffrey Archer details the accounts of the main seven characters answers every last question I have. I was shocked at the ending and literally wanted to cry. I could not believe that he would end the book with a big fat question mark to the future of Harry's life when he had so many details previously. Man was I surprised and thrilled as I sat there in shock end the audio kept going to discover it's the 1st of a series. I immediately bought 3 credits and purchased the next book.

    "should be one book"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If the book would have stood on its own with an end.


    Has The Sins of the Father turned you off from other books in this genre?

    It is like a soap with each book not finishing the story to get you to buy the rest. I bought the first one at a discount, but it isn't worth six buys to get the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Should sell all six for two credits.

    "It's a Sit in Your Driveway Listen"

    Jeffrey Archer is an amazing story teller. The second installment in the series did not disappoint. The narration if first rate and the use of two narrators keeps it interesting. I found myself sitting in the driveway listening until my husband peaked out the window wondering if I was going to come in. Highly recommended.
