NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING author Jeffrey Archer-returns with a powerful tale of twins separated by fate and reunited by destiny.
In Hartford, Connecticut, in the late 1940s, a set of twins is parted at birth-not by accident. Nat Cartwright goes home with his parents, a schoolteacher and an insurance salesman, while his twin brother begins his days as Fletcher Davenport, son of a millionaire and his society wife.
During the 1950s and 1960s, the two brothers grow up apart, following similar paths that take them in different directions. Nat leaves college at the University of Connecticut to serve in Vietnam, then finishes school, earns his MBA, and becomes a successful currency dealer. Fletcher, meanwhile, graduates from Yale University with a bachelor's and a law degree, going on to distinguish himself as a criminal defense lawyer.
At various times in their lives, both men are confronted with challenges and obstacles, tragedy and betrayal, loss and hardship, before they both decide to run for governor, unaware they are brothers....
In the tradition of Jeffrey Archer's most popular books, Sons of Fortune is as much a chronicle of a nation in transition as it is the story of the making of these two men -and how they eventually discover the truth-and its tragic consequences.

Sons of Fortune
Something is very wrong with the editing making it hard to read. In addition to the many minor errors, the narrative is often interrupted in mid-sentence and switches to a completely different conversation with different people. It is difficult to follow the story.
Archer is a masterful storyteller. His character development and prose is second to none. This is a must-read for fans of Kane and Abel, Prodigal Daughter, and Prisoner of Birth. I couldn't put it down.
I really enjoyed the book. Read it in a day at the beach because I constantly wanted to know what would happen next. I'd say the first few chapters were a bit slow, but the overall story is magnificent.
