International bestseller and master storyteller Jeffrey Archer is at the very top of his game in a story of fate and fortune, redemption and revenge.

If Danny Cartwright had proposed to Beth Wilson the day before, or the day after, he would not have been arrested and charged with the murder of his best friend. But when the four prosecution witnesses are a barrister, a popular actor, an aristocrat, and the youngest partner in an established firm's history, who is going to believe your side of the story?

Danny is sentenced to twenty-two years and sent to Belmarsh prison, the highest-security jail in the land, from where no inmate has ever escaped.

However, Spencer Craig, Lawrence Davenport, Gerald Payne, and Toby Mortimer all underestimate Danny's determination to seek revenge, and Beth's relentless quest to pursue justice, which ends up with all four fighting for their lives,

Thus begins Jeffrey Archer's most powerful novel since Kane and Abel, with a cast of characters that will remain with you long after you've turned the last page.

And if that is not enough, prepare for an ending that will shock even the most ardent of Archer's fans.

Another great story
January 3rd, 2015
This is an amazing tale of a man unjustly accused and sentenced to life in prison but in true Archer fashion the story unfolds and takes the reader on a nail biting journey of revenge, patience, unwavering love, friendship and loyalty. A page turner you won't be able to put down.

I thought this was a great book. Archer never disappoints. He is a master of plot, and always keeps the reader interested during the journey as well, with subtle details that have meaning once the book is finished. There always seems to be a satisfying ending to the book as well, meaning that you are always in for a surprise .-

Excellent read! I love the twists and turns in this book which rivet you to the story line. I couldn't put it down for very long- only for the bare necessities of life. Ending was phenomenal and totally unexpected.
