    Description

    Best Kept Secret is a novel by Jeffrey Archer that is part of the Clifton Chronicles series, and follows the life, and adventures of Harry Clifton, who must deal with an international art fraud, along with several other mysterious instances.

    Summary Of The Book

    Best Kept Secret is a thrilling novel by Jeffery Archer that promises to keep its readers glued, right till the very last page. The story is set in the year 1945, and starts with highlighting a very important decision concerning the fortune of the Barrington family. This decision must be made on the basis of a vote in the House of Lords, affecting Harry Clifton, and Giles Barrington, who are vying for that fortune. Through the course of this book, Harry, and Emma decide to adopt a girl named Jessica, who is the love child of Emma’s dad.

    As the story advances, we are introduced to Sebastian Clifton, who is the son of Harry Clifton, and Emma. As time passes, the General Election approaches, and Giles Barrington is called to defend his seat in the House of Commons. However, he soon learns that he has been pitted against Sebastian, and this comes as a rude shock to him.

    In the year 1957, Sebastian wins a scholarship to Cambridge. However, things turn ugly when he finds himself involved in an international art fraud, due to which he gets thrown out of his university. The fraud revolves around a Rodin statue, whose value is much more than it could ever raise at an auction. However, this scam raises a lot of questions about Sebastian’s own fate, in terms of his safety, and future.

    Archer, being a part of the British Conservative Party, provides the readers with information into several parliamentary procedures, and the election process, thereby adding an autobiographical touch to this novel. The Best Kept Secret keeps its readers on pins, and needles as the characters manage to save themselves from dreadful circumstances by the skin of their teeth.

    The book was published in 2013.

    The Saga Meanders On......

    The much-awaited third novel in Jeffrey Archer's The Clifton Chronicles, takes off from where it left off, with the story tantalisingly poised, but sadly meanders on and then fizzles out, with the plot taking on predictable lines. The chief protagonist of the Clifton Chronicles, Harry Clifton, does get to marry his childhood sweet heart, Emma Barrington, and takes the story forward by two decades, with his son Sebastian taking centre stage. But the story fails to grab the attention of the rea...

    Ok so now you know the pattern of things ... And thus a bit boring

    Hi

    I have to say that I was dying to get my hands onto the book. And as I started reading and got to kno more about the next Cliffton - Sebastian I realized that its a repeat of the last two book in terms of the conclusion of all the events that happen in his life. I.e. at last all will be well in their favor.

    And the whole series starts feeling like on of those long unending Indian serials. The writing like always is top class cant deny but the story lags the punch you felt in the first ...

    A filler

    The whole novel is more like a filler in which the years have passed but nothing much has taken place. The thing which I disliked the most is its similarity to another Jeffrey Archer novel in parts which I have read previously. The share trading shown reminds me strongly of the underhanded things Abel did in “Kane & Abel”. Also, when the book ended it left me thinking about which “secret” is the author talking about that is best off as secret? Misleading title this one! Hope the next two nove...

    After ages - a book that is "unputdownable"!

    I'm a big fan of Jeffrey Archer and a bigger fan of this series - The Clifton Chronicles - so you may find that this review is biased. However, after a long time, I've come across a book that was absolutely unputdownable.

    Archer is just the best when it comes to creating characters that are real yet loveable. You care for each character, you want good things to happen to them, you swear when someone plots against them - the book pulls you into its pages and the lives of its characters very d...

    worst of the three but worth "a" reading

    it might have been a good one if obvious comparisons wouldn't have arisen with the other two. this one clearly lacks the twists and turns that were there in the first two books. but i liked the ending though it is expected and understandable about what will happen appear in the first few pages of the fourth one. but i failed to understand what was the best kept secret....well, an ardent fan of jeffrey archer like me cannot put down the book before the last page but otherwise it's an average b...

    Waiting made it great!

    Jeffery Archer! Again! I cannot describe how awesome he is! Yet another amazing work by the master! Got the book at 1030 today, thanks to preordering. Left with the last 100 pages. Very, very good book. A must read. Better than Sins of the Father. Eagerly awaiting the final two books of the Clifton Chronicles. Lastly, Flipkart's service has always been awesome! But aFlipkart has outdone itself this time. Amazing service! I got the dispatch mail last night and the book was in my hands at 1030 ...
