Growing up in the slums of East End London, Charlie Trumper dreams of someday running his grandfather's fruit and vegetable barrow. That day comes suddenly when his grandfather dies leaving him the floundering business. With the help of Becky Salmon, an enterprising young woman, Charlie sets out to make a name for himself as "The Honest Trader". But the brutal onset of World War I takes Charlie far from home and into the path of a dangerous enemy whose legacy of evil follows Charlie and his family for generations.

Encompassing three continents and spanning over sixty years, As the Crow Flies brings to life a magnificent tale of one man's rise from rags to riches set against the backdrop of a changing century.

why does archer kill off one of the good guys near the bginning of every book he writes. Sure spoils the rest of the book when you can be sure it's going to happen & you keep wondering who, when & how.

This is one of my all time favourite books. I have read multiple times over the last 20 odd years - I love a long story told over generations and different times. It is so well written - I would recommend to anyone who loves a good saga with depth and excellent exposistion.
