Publisher's Summary

The second book in Jeffrey Archer’s highly acclaimedThe Clifton Chronicles, The Sins of the Fathertakes the reader on a breath-taking journey from the backstreets of Bristol to the boardrooms of Manhattan.

The book opens in New York, 1939. Harry Clifton, under the new identity of Tom Bradshaw, finds himself arrested for first degree murder. When Sefton Jelks, a top Manhattan lawyer, offers his services for nothing, penniless Harry has little choice but to accept his advice.

After Harry is tried, found guilty and sentenced, Jelks mysteriously disappears, and the only way for him to prove his innocence is to reveal his true identity – something that he has sworn never to do in order to protect the woman he loves.

Meanwhile Emma Barrington, the young woman in question, travels to New York. She has left their son behind in England, having decided she’ll do whatever it takes to find the man she had hoped to marry – unwilling to believe that he died at sea. The only proof she has is a letter - a letter that has remained unopened and unread on a mantelpiece in Bristol for over a year, but the hand is unmistakeable.

In Jeffrey Archer’s epic novel, family loyalties are stretched to their very limits as secrets continue to unravel.

    "Lost its way"

    I was looking forward to the next chapter of the Clifton Chronicles but cannot help feeling that this was a hurried follow up with a poor plot. When I finished listening to it I felt the storyline had not really progressed much from the end of the first novel and the finale was akin to suspense program, I half expected the narrator to announce " Tune in for the next thrilling episode and find out what happens to Harry next week". Sorry I wanted to enjoy it but it was not possible.

    "Recycled characters and plots"

    Until now I have been a fan of Archer but this series has killed any appreciation I once had. The Clifton Chronicles represents an amalgamation of all characters and dominant plot lines in his older books, delivered without the same impact. He even recycles the names of characters, along with previously deployed histories. The narration is good, the only redeeming feature. If you've read the rest of his works, there is no need to bother with this set.

    "Another Good One"

    Story kept me interested, narrated well, enjoyed characters. Feel the story moves fast, almosy on a TV level but I do look forward to next one

    "can't wait to read the next one!"

    So many twists and turns of fate. Easy listening and I was able to pick up in short bursts on the morning dog walk without any loss of plot. Downloading the next book now.
