The Sins of the Father (Hardcover) Price: Rs.999

The Sins Of The Father, the second book from Jeffrey Archer’s Clifton Chronicles, a man is tried for a murder - probably one he didn’t commit.

Summary Of The Book

Set in the late 1930s, The Sins Of The Father presents a tale of mystery and intrigue, dramatized by a serious case of mistaken identity.

In New York, America, a man named Tom Bradshaw is arrested for murdering his own brother.  He is tried and sentenced to a term in prison, where he begins penning down his prison experiences in The Diary Of A Convict. A fellow inmate named Max Lloyd publishes the diaries in his own name upon his release.

Elsewhere, a woman named Emma has set out in search of her fiancé, Harry, who is believed to have died at sea. Unwilling to believe the news of his death and armed only with a year-old unopened letter as proof, she vows to do everything possible to unravel the mystery.

When Emma happens to read a published version of The Diary Of A Convict, she is in for a shock. She may have reached the end of her quest after all. Or she may get further caught up in a complex web of unknown people and places. Only time will unravel the intricate web of dangerous secrets and masked identities.

The book was published in 2012 by Pan Macmillan. It has received positive reviews for its gripping plot presented in true Jeffrey Archer style.

About Jeffrey Archer

Jeffrey Archer is an English author and former politician.

He has written novels, plays, short stories, children’s books, and non-fictional pieces. His written works include Only Time Will Tell, The First Miracle, Cat O’Nine Tales, A Quiver Full Of Arrows, The Prodigal Daughter, Honour Among Thieves, the Kane And Abel series, and First Among Equals.

His novels are said to be the result of extended periods of writing and rewriting. They are mainly thrillers and dramas, marked by Archer’s distinctly inimitable style of writing.

Archer was born on April 15, 1940, in London, England. After passing O-levels from Wellington School, he took a series of different jobs, including a job as a physical education teacher at the Vicar’s Hill prep school in Hampshire. He went on to earn an academic qualification in teaching from Brasenose College, Oxford. Archer married Mary Weeden in 1966. His debut novel, Not A Penny More, Not A Penny Less, was an instant hit and its success rescued him from the verge of bankruptcy. At the age of 29, he embarked on a political career, one that would eventually be marred by many controversies. Archer, now no longer involved in politics, spends his time focusing on his writing.

To sum it up! Worth every penny.
VERDICT: Could you, Mr. Archer, write faster?

The Clifton Saga continues....

The purchase of this book was my first transaction with Flipkart, and so I was a little skeptical, but I was pleasantly surprised when I received the extremely well packaged book within 36 hours of placing the order! Not only did I get a hefty discount on the cover price, but also I was saved and spared from my time, energy and the transport cost of making a trip to my nearest book-store. Kudos to Flipkart! Thank you and please carry on with the good work that you are doing.

Thank you and please carry on with the good work that you are doing.

This book, which is the 2nd part of the 5 parts of the Clifton chronicles, starts from where it left off in the earlier book, “Only Time Will Tell”(2011), with Harry Clifton being arrested in the U.S. on charge of murder, when he takes the identity of his dead ship mate, Tom Bradshaw. He gets a 6 year jail sentence, thanks to the machinations of a crafty and wily lawyer, Sefton Jelks. The book primarily deals with Harry’s experiences in prison, his subsequent release and his exploits in the 2nd World War.

In a parallel mode, the book also chronicles the tireless efforts of Harry’s love interest, Emma Barrington, in trying to trace him down in America. The book also follows the fortunes of Harry’s mother Maisie, his childhood buddy, Giles Barrington and his illegitimate father (?) Hugo Barrington.

Although this book is not in the same league as Archer’s previous Kane & Abel trilogy, it is however engrossing and interesting to read, though the plot seems somewhat predictable. Archer, however, saves his best for the last, when he ends on a tantalizing note, making the readers of this saga wait for another year to know whether Harry or Giles will get the peerage, or whether Harry will be able to marry his childhood sweet-heart Emma after all!

With soothsayers making prophecies and doomsday predictions about the end of the world in 2012, I hope we all will remain alive and hale and hearty to read the next 3 installments of the story in 2013-2015.

It should have ended :)

If there's one writer who could make you fall in love with his characters its Jeffrey Archer, and when I say love, its actually love :)

At the end of Only Time Will Tell, you start developing an attachment to Emma Barrington. And the end of The Sins of the Father, you wish she was your lover. And this feeling is not just restricted to Emma. As every character of Mr. Archer unfolds and matures itself from the first book to the end of the current one, you wish that you could meet them in real life.

And this feeling is not just restricted to Emma. As every character of Mr. Archer unfolds and matures itself from the first book to the end of the current one, you wish that you could meet them in real life. Be it the ever deprived mother Masie Clifton, the loveable Great Aunt Phyllis, the grand fatherly Sir Barrington and Lord Harvey or the ever so devilish Hugo Barrington. You would end up developing intense feelings for each one of them. And the star of all is of course is Sir Harry (now) - Archer makes you wish you were him. The character whole lot of not so good times, but by the end of it all, there are good times waiting, good times that are brought about by the girl for whom he was bearing with all the not so good times. Top all this love with the pains and misfortunes of war. If anyone tries to finish off this book in one sitting, then one thing is guaranteed for sure - they would have time travelled to Second World War America and Europe - that's the effect of Mr. Archer on you.

But, I just have one regret. I really wanted to see the most anticipated marriage of Clifton Chronicles getting done and over in this book - Harry weds Emma. But I guess we all would have to wait a year more :(

PAGE TURNER TILL THE END...

First of all, thanks to flipkart for delivering my order within 24 hrs.. Ur service is extraordinary..

Coming to THE SINS OF THE FATHER,which is a sequel to ONLY TIME WILL TELL, is a page turner which should have ended merrily after various twists & turns in this book. I dont know how Jeffery Archer is going to take the next part since the book seemed to be nearing completion in this edition itself. But Jeffery Archer is a master story-teller and has a proven track record in his kitty.

I dont know how Jeffery Archer is going to take the next part since the book seemed to be nearing completion in this edition itself. But Jeffery Archer is a master story-teller and has a proven track record in his kitty.

The story simply takes off from where it was left in the previous book. Tom Bradshaw(Harry Clifton) is arrested for the murder of his own brother but gets a prison term not for murder but only for desertion of US Navy. The mistaken identity is never proved in court and the story moves on in non-linear narration with other important characters of the story. This story is all about whether Harry is found to be alive by Emma and What happens to Giles, Maisie & Hugo after Harry leaves Bristol. The new characters add spice to the story and make us finish the book in one read. Though there are many logical loopholes in the book, one can never question them since the story was happening in 1940s when there was not much scientific advancements.

Awaiting eagerly for the next part of the Clifton Chronicles :)

just BRILLIANT!! =D

Without a doubt, the author's best work till date. I just couldn't put this one down. A book that sucks you in from the very first line and does not allow you to breathe until the last page is turned. It was my bad luck that I ordered it on the day before my exam.

I'll still say that it was worth it!

On the heels of the international bestseller Only Time Will Tell, Jeffrey Archer picks up the sweeping story of the Clifton Chronicles.

The story takes off exactly where it had left us in Only Time Will Tell, with Harry being questioned by the police inspector after being arrested because he was impersonating Tom Bradshaw. In typical Archer style, it progresses quickly through various characters, frequently going back and forth in time.

The ending, as expected, was completely unexpected. And abrupt. A cliffhanger that left me groaning when I turned the last page. I am buying the next in the series as soon as it hits the bookstores.

Oh, and btw awesome job delivering the books flipkart....

Deserving Sequel

The start of the 2nd vol of clifton chronicles was a bit dull but it picked as you progressed. Spoiler alert they killed off Hugo in the volume. This one was a lot less predictable than 1st vol. Easy reading, and a normal reader should finish the book in 4-6 hrs. Go for it ! (View complete review)
