Editorial Reviews

Review

Archer packs a plot with thrills and chills enough for readers to keep turning the pages, saying, What's gonna happen next?...The conclusion's a turbo-charged cliffhanger that'll have fans screaming Arrrcherr! "Kirkus Reviews on Mightier Than the Sword"

["The Sins of the Father"] will keep your blood pressure high and you ll risk back injury just from being kept on the edge of your seat I guarantee that anyone who takes this book from the shelves will not be able to put it down. "The Spectator (UK)"

Archer knows how to dole out tiny crumbs of suspense right up to the last page, which ends with a really excellent cliffhanger. "The Washington Post"" --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

From Publishers Weekly

This sixth, and penultimate, addition to the Clifton Chronicles series (after Mightier Than the Sword) continues with the Cliftons and the Barringtons in the 1970s—their family fortunes and travails, love affairs, political dramas, business mishaps and espionage entanglements. The story begins with a libel trial and a suicide note, bringing embarrassment and consequences for Emma and Harry Clifton, Lady Virginia Fenwick, and Sir Giles Barrington. Sir Giles, in love with an East German translator, risks everything to bring her over the Berlin Wall and to England, but is she smitten or a spy? Meanwhile, Lady Virginia, Sir Giles's ex-wife, is becoming desperate after having been financially cut off by her father. She victimizes a wealthy, gullible American in an outrageous scam, but the victim's wife is on to her. Emma's husband, best-selling author Harry Clifton, uses his photographic memory and oratory skills to help the world recognize a Nobel Prize-winning, imprisoned Russian author. Emma and Harry's son, Sebastian, still has a messy love life which now turns shockingly violent. Archer continues his storytelling magic to create characters of spellbinding substance, and readers can count on his surprising twists and shocking conclusion. Here, just when the end seems too tidy, Archer provides a killer cliffhanger. (Feb.) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
