Publisher's Summary

The second book in Jeffrey Archer’s highly acclaimed The Clifton Chronicles, The Sins of the Father takes the reader on a breath-taking journey from the backstreets of Bristol to the boardrooms of Manhattan.
The book opens in New York, 1939. Harry Clifton, under the new identity of Tom Bradshaw, finds himself arrested for first degree murder. When Sefton Jelks, a top Manhattan lawyer, offers his services for nothing, penniless Harry has little choice but to accept his advice.
After Harry is tried, found guilty and sentenced, Jelks mysteriously disappears, and the only way for him to prove his innocence is to reveal his true identity – something that he has sworn never to do in order to protect the woman he loves.
Meanwhile Emma Barrington, the young woman in question, travels to New York. She has left their son behind in England, having decided she’ll do whatever it takes to find the man she had hoped to marry – unwilling to believe that he died at sea. The only proof she has is a letter - a letter that has remained unopened and unread on a mantelpiece in Bristol for over a year, but the hand is unmistakeable.
In Jeffrey Archer’s epic novel, family loyalties are stretched to their very limits as secrets continue to unravel.

very good

second time round on this book very enjoyable and completely not my thing at all in the slightest but I really enjoyed all these books and you find yourself getting to know the characters so well and feeling for them, the nasty characters are so vile and mean I won't say what happens but their parts are very exciting

Suspension of disbelief impossible. Silly story with ridiculous plot and lines of development. Good thing the readers were so competent and versatile.
