Mightier than the Sword

Book 5, The Clifton Chronicles

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Mightier than the Sword opens with an IRA bomb exploding during the MV Buckingham's maiden voyage across the Atlantic - but how many passengers lose their lives?

When Harry Clifton visits his publisher in New York, he learns that he has been elected as the new president of English PEN, and immediately launches a campaign for the release of a fellow author, Anatoly Babakov, who's imprisoned in Siberia. Babakov's crime? Writing a book called Uncle Joe, a devastating insight into what it was like to work for Stalin. So determined is Harry to see Babakov released and the book published, that he puts his own life in danger.

His wife Emma, chairman of Barrington Shipping, is facing the repercussions of the IRA attack on the Buckingham. Some board members feel she should resign, and Lady Virginia Fenwick will stop at nothing to cause Emma's downfall.

Sir Giles Barrington is now a minister of the Crown, and looks set for even higher office, until an official trip to Berlin does not end as a diplomatic success. Once again, Giles's political career is thrown off balance by none other than his old adversary, Major Alex Fisher, who once again stands against him at the election. But who wins this time?

In London, Harry and Emma's son, Sebastian, is quickly making a name for himself at Farthing's Bank in London, and has proposed to the beautiful young American, Samantha. But the despicable Adrian Sloane, a man interested only in his own advancement and the ruin of Sebastian, will stop at nothing to remove his rival.

Jeffrey Archer's compelling Clifton Chronicles continue in this, his most accomplished novel to date. With all the trademark twists and turns that have made him one of the world's most popular authors, the spellbinding story of the Clifton and the Barrington families continues.

Archer still writes the best of books

I'm 46 and read all types of books. One of my best books was Kane and able. Since then I'll read anything by Mr archer. Fortunately he has never disappointed me. Keep on writing and I'll keep on reading.

Another great BUT with a cliffhanger!!

Another great book but it ends yet again with a cliffhanger and the next book is not due to be released until 2016! Not as exciting as previous releases in the Clifton chronicles - I definitely wouldn't pay full price for it when I bought the others for 99p! I wish we didn't have to wait so long for the next book - I'll probably have forgotten all about the Clifton family and their woes by then!

As ever....

Fascinating Nd fast paced, JA is a master of story telling and this book maintains the suspension to the very last word
