Bristol 1957. Harry Clifton e sua moglie Emma stanno ancora cercando di capire chi ha attentato alla vita di Sebastian e perché, quando Ross Buchanan, fidato presidente della Compagnia di navigazione Barrington, viene costretto a dimettersi. Emma vorrebbe sostituirlo alla guida dell'impresa, ma è contrastata da Pedro Martinez, che mira a insediare un suo fedelissimo e a gettare i Barrington sul lastrico proprio mentre la società progetta di costruire un nuovo, monumentale transatlantico. Intanto Jessica, figlia adottiva dei Clifton, vince una borsa di studio a Londra, dove si innamora di un compagno di studi, Clive Bingham, che ne chiede la mano. L'unione è ben vista dalle rispettive famiglie, ma una vecchia amica della madre dello sposo, Lady Virginia Fenwick, lascia cadere la sua goccia di veleno nel calice nuziale... Poi, a sorpresa, Cedric Hardcastle si insedia nel consiglio d'amministrazione della Barrington, e la difficile decisione che è chiamato a prendere darà una svolta del tutto inaspettata agli eventi.

Series : Clifton Chronicles #4 Genre : Historical fiction, Mystery, Drama Publication Date : March 2014 Book number four of the Clifton chronicles. Story is good, not many surprises in the beginning, but the plot gets a lot of new elements as it progresses, with the banking and the board election and the Leggi tutto
This saga is draggin out a bit too long for me. This is number 4 in the Clifton Family soap opera and there is at least one more to go. Strikes me that old Jeffrey is just making hay while he can. The story is very predictable but the most disappointing thing for me is the lack of connection with th Leggi tutto
I have friends who will not read a series of books until they have brought them all. Having been frustrated at having to wait until 2015 to see how this ends I am beginning to see there point. That is how good this series of books it. I was frustrated at the end of the last one and I am frustrated a Leggi tutto
Clifton Chronicles in the fourth episode first drifts then decays and by the end simply disintegrates into a purposeless record of a barely interesting family. It keeps trying to evoke reader emotions through the same story tricks used frequently in the previous books but they are no longer charming Leggi tutto
The fourth book of The Clifton Chronicles, and just as gripping as the others. What I find funny is often I can predict where it's going, but I'm completely caught up regardless. I find myself reading this in massive chunks, desperate to know what's going to happen next. My investment in this saga i Leggi tutto
HOW DARE YOU END A STORY THAT WAY MR. ARCHER!!!! Jeffrey Archer forces me, and other readers alike, to wait a whole year before we can get the book 5 in the Clifton Chronicles?!?!?! That is unacceptable. Like it's predecessors, Be Careful What You Wish For ends with a cliffhanger that cleverly forces Leggi tutto
As usual Archer spins a wonderful tale and keeps the reader engrossed throughout. Continuing with the fourth installment of Clifton Chronicles, this takes the reader through the lives of the Barrington and Clifton families. Love, death, conspiracies and plentiful suspense in this book. As usual Arch Leggi tutto
When I was in Class 7, my father recommended the first Jeffrey Archer novel I read - Not A Penny More, Not A Penny Less. I did not quite understand the intricacies of the stock fraud but the reverse stings were spectacular. And I was hooked for life. When you are nearing forty, you get used to qualit Leggi tutto
The books in this series all follow a sort of pattern, and I just knew that this of course would end with another cliffhanger where you don't know who in the Clifton / Barrington families will or will not survive. It's for that reason I never mention any of their names in my reviews. This takes plac Leggi tutto
