Really enjoyed this second stage in the Clifton saga. Just when I thought all of the dirty tricks had been played - more came along. People can be truly evil.

The old man still tells a great story however, the writing seems a bit simplistic this time around. I will definitely read his next book.

This is classic Jeffrey archer, his characters always come out of the lot and are never plain normal.

I was looking forward to keep reading the clifton chronicle and I have therefore ordered the next book.

3.0 out of 5 stars This is not a page-turner... Jan. 26 2014
By Pat the cat TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Having read the first installment (Only time will tell), naturally, I had to read the sequel to find out what happened to Harry when he arrived in the USA. I'll tell you, this book/series is hard for me to judge because on the one hand I'm mildly curious enough to keep reading to find out what will happen to Harry as well as the other characters (Emma, Giles, Hugo, Maisie). On the other hand, I am rather bored by the whole saga because it's more like a broad chronicle of stuff that happens, often independently, to different people. Overall, it's pretty tedious and not that thrilling or enthralling. It's odd to see where the author chose to put the emphasis. Harry's 2 years in jail is only skimmed over while that boring debate over the inheritance of the title at the end takes forever... There are many useless subplots (e.g., Maisie's marriage) and loose ends (her two other suitors just give up? what happens to the Bradshaws and Sefton Jelks, uncle Stan comes and goes without much follow up thoughts)... I don't know how to rate it....good enough but substandard, in my opinion, for such a famous author... I'll be nice and give it 3 stars out of 5 (good).
