The Sins of the Father


The master storyteller continues the Clifton saga with this, the second novel. New York, 1939. Tom Bradshaw is arrested for first degree murder. He stands accused of killing his brother. When Sefton Jelks, a top Manhattan lawyer, offers his services for nothing, penniless Tom has little choice but to accept his assurance of a lighter sentence. After Tom is tried, found guilty and sentenced, Jelks disappears, and the only way for him to prove his innocence would be to reveal his true identity - something that he has sworn never to do in order to protect the woman he loves. Meanwhile, the young woman in question travels to New York, leaving their son behind in England, having decided she'll do whatever it takes to find the man she was to marry - unwilling to believe that he died at sea. The only proof she has is a letter. A letter that has remained unopened on a mantelpiece in Bristol for over a year. In Jeffrey Archer's epic novel, family loyalties are stretched to their limits as secrets unravel, and the story moves from the backstreets of Bristol to the boardrooms of Manhattan. Join the great storyteller on a journey where there are no stop signs, no cul-de-sacs and no dead ends. Hide synopsis

The Clifton Chronicles Jeffrey Archer

by charyl g on Aug 22, 2013

The story has spanned three books and I am waiting for the forth next year. It starts with "The Sins of the Father" and continues. When each book ends, there is a cliffhanger and I can't wait for the next book! The author has served in England's Parliament and running for office is just a small plot in the over all story of two families, one rich and the other poor but professional and how each family influences the other; choices and mistakes that take a toll on all involved. The plot is intricate and fascinating from wealth and big business to children in boarding school becoming friends, with life lessons along the way.
