Synopsis

On the heels of the international bestseller 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 U-boat, 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.

    Didnt disappoint!

    Glad I started this series, and I can't wait to read 3 and 4. Couldn't put it down! Love the way it's written, jumping from character to character.

    Amazing 2

    I can't get enough of reading about the Cliftons and Barringtons. Always reading and can't put it down. Archer finds a way to draw u into the action and u don't want to leave until the last page has been turned.

    The Sins of the Father

    Sometimes, the sequel is good but does't quite live up to the original. Not so with this book! Intelligent, fast paced, interesting, and the ending...wow. All I can say is, totally enjoyable.

    Hard to put down series

    The Clifton Chronicles is one series I'm glad I didn't start until book 3 was being released. I love the story line though at first I thought it was a triology only to find it's now got 5 episodes and probably still counting. Harry Clifton is an interesting character who straddles the fence between upper class and working class Britain and in this second novel he's landed in America and put in prison under his assumed identity. Harry's deep seated conscience to do what's right doesn't always lead him to do what's best for Harry. An enjoyable series that reads quickly like a weekly TV series episode, as one plot ends another begins and leaves you hanging on for the next one.
