From the Back Cover
"With more than 2 million copies in print, the Clifton Chronicles has taken #1 worldwide bestselling author Jeffrey Archer to a whole new level. And the saga continues. . ."
Harry Clifton's New York publisher has elected him the new president of English PEN. Now Harry's on a mission to free a fellow author who's imprisoned in Siberia-even if doing so puts Harry's own life, and life's work, in danger. Meanwhile, his wife Emma, chairman of Barrington Shipping, is facing the repercussions of an IRA bombing on the" Buckingham." Some board members feel she should resign. Others will stop at nothing to ensure the Clifton family's fall from grace. In London, Harry and Emma's son, Sebastian, is quickly making a name for himself at Farthing's Bank. He's also just proposed to a beautiful young American, Samantha. But the despicable Adrian Sloane, is only interested in one thing: Sebastian's ruin.
"Begins with a "bang."..[ends] with a turbo-charged cliffhanger."
Sir Giles Barrington, now a minister of the Crown, looks set for even higher office-until a diplomatic failure in Berlin threatens his prospects. Once again it appears that Giles's political career is thrown off balance by none other than his old adversary, Major Alex Fisher. But who win the election this time? And at what cost?
"Archer plots with skill, and keeps you turning the pages." -"The Boston Globe"

Jeffrey Archer's spins a tale with complex, well-developed characters facing various - and at times - dire challenges throughout the tale whose lives are intertwined through many circumstances/situations over time that are made clear as the novel progresses from beginning to end. However - at the end of the novel - WAY too many questions remain unclear for the reader concerning many of the intricate situations woven into this tale who is basically told to wait for the next work in this series which should be available some time this year (2016). The only time I was more disappointed with the 'leave the reader hanging' feeling is when James Leigh did not write a follow-up novel to his excellent work, "The Ludi Victor."
Again Jeffrey Archer, "Mightier Than The Sword" is a well-written, fast-paced novel. In the future.please learn from you contemporaries I previously mentioned (Follett, Ludlum, DeMille) and provide the reader with closure at the end of each book in this series. It's very well-written and the characters are believable and fit well into the then-historical context in this novel/series; we anticipate reading the future of the Barrington/Clifton/Fenwick saga!
If Not--Look forward to a Very Lovely use of the London English Language and London History! I envy you!!! I have been enjoying him since I was working in the North Sea Oil Rush in the 1980's!
For a Toff, J.A. is a Great Voice for history and Politics and Money! What I appreciate is that he has not gone maudlin about connections to London Blitz. And, in prison: never apologized for making the decision to fight for his reputation, and his survival. And, never glamourized the villians.
As a reader--I have to stop and take a breather, and wish that he would not leave his series on "Such Cliff-Hanger Moments" so that I have to commit to buy next year's book!
BUT he is such a good storyteller! Da! I subscribe to buy the next volume!
So. Buy the book, buy the series, buy the line! ENJOY!
