Yet again Jeffery Archer keeps the reader gripped on his every word in the 2nd book of the Clifton / Barrington family saga - Sins of the Father.
A pager turner from page one where we start off as the previous book (Only Time Will Tell) ends - as Harry Clifton / Tom Bradshaw steps off the ship and onto US soil.
The story spans the course of World War 2 and packed with drama and suspense in true Archer style.
A must read!

Jeffrey Archer has topped bestseller lists worldwide, with book sales of over 270 million copies.
The Sins of the Father is the second in his five-book Clifton Chronicles saga. Written in the perfect family saga tradition, Archer is comfortably in his element.
Harry Clifton arrives in the United States in 1939. As he leaves the ship, he is arrested for a crime he didn’t commit, and sent to jail for 6 years. In prison, he turns to books as a way to preserve his sanity. After a few months of hell, and some clever manipulation, he starts working in the library. He writes The Diary of a Convict, and this allows him to write down his truth.
We are also afforded glimpses into the lives of Giles Barrington, Maisie Clifton and Hugo Barrington. The novel ends in 1945 with a twist in the tale as all good Archer novels do.
If you enjoy family sagas, you will love The Sins of the Father.
