Publisher's Summary

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.

The Sins of the Father worth the wait

If you could sum up The Sins of the Father in three words, what would they be?

Which character – as performed by Alex Jennings and Emilia Fox – was your favorite?

Giles Barrington and Great Aunt (forget her name) but the Scottish accent was spot on.

Who was the most memorable character of The Sins of the Father and why?

The rich Jewish woman, she got her revenge on Hugo Barrington in the end.

Any additional comments?

I have been waiting for what seems like an age for this book to be released. I was not disappointed and enjoyed it immensely. Jeffrey Archer is a terrific author and I wait again for the next installment, if somewhat impatiently.
