Synopsis

Fourth Estate

Jeffrey Archer

Richard Armstrong narrowly escaped Hitler's atrocities in Eastern Europe on his courage and his wits--skills that served him well in peacetime. Having turned a struggling Berlin newspaper into a success story seemingly overnight, Armstrong made a name for himself--and more than a few enemies along the way…Meanwhile, young Keith Townsend enters the international arena, armed with a world-class education and a sense of entitlement to match. Charged with growing his father's newspaper business into a global media force, he and Armstrong are bound to become sworn rivals--until they arrive at the edge of collapse and will do whatever it takes to stay alive in the game…or die trying.

The Fourth Estate
May 30th, 2015
A twisting tale of two media kings from their formative years and influences to the pinnacles of success and failure. While entertaining, the inner tension usually found in Archer's books is somewhat lacking. Instead of regretting the final denouement and the last word in the last chapter, I was more or less relieved to have it end. Certainly not up to the standards set in the Clifton Chronicles (for which I anxiously await the next instalment.
