Publisher's Summary

This download also includes an in interview with Jeffrey Archer about A Prisoner of Birth.

Danny Cartwright and Spencer Craig were born on different sides of the track. Danny, an East End Cockney, leaves Clement Attlee Comprehensive School at the age of 15 to take up a job at a local garage. He falls in love with Beth, the boss's daughter, and asks her to marry him.

Spencer Craig resides in the West End, a graduate of an English public school and Cambridge University. After leaving university, he becomes a criminal barrister and is soon tipped to be the youngest Queen's Counsel of his generation.

Danny and Beth travel up to the West End to celebrate their engagement. They end the evening in a wine bar where Spencer Craig is also celebrating - his 30th birthday, along with a select group of university chums. Their lives will never be the same again. For, an hour later, one of them is arrested for murder, while the other ends up as the prosecution's chief witness in an Old Bailey trial.

Listen to two entertaining interviews with Jeffrey Archer on Audible.co.uk Podcast 6 and Audible.co.uk Podcast 13.

    "Vetry Enjoyable Book"

    My husband and I both really enjoyed this book.We listened to it on the way to our recent vacation and on the way back.All the time during the vacation I was trying to work out the ending.We have a very slow truck which we use for holidays and the story made the driving time fly.No possible chance of falling asleep at the wheel.The book has a wonderful twist in the ending and is ultimately satisfying as the underdog / good guy wins in the end.

    "Disappointing"

    My first Jeffrey Archer book. The basic idea of the plot was good (if a bit far-fetched) and the detail seemed well researched. However, the narration was plodding which made the whole thing drag though I hung on to the end. The overall impression was that it was aimed at a juvenile audience.

    "A Prisoner of Birth"

    A good plot, as are all Archer's books, but spoiled by the poor quality of his writing. The dull, monotonous delivery of the narrator did little to drive it along. All in all - disappointing.
