In Hartford, Connecticut, in the late 1940's a set of twins is parted at birth - not by accident. Nat Cartwright goes home with his parents, a school teacher and an insurance salesman, while his twin brother begins his days as Fletcher Davenport, son of a multi-millionaire and his society wife.

During the 1950s and 1960s, the two brothers grow up apart, following similar paths that take them in different directions. Nat leaves college to serve in Vietnam, then finishes school, earns his MBS, and becomes a successful currency dealer. Fletcher, meanwhile, graduates from Yale with a bachelor's and a law degree, going on to distinguish himself as a criminal defense lawyer before becoming a senator.

At various times in their lives, both men are confronted with challenges and obstacles, tragedy and betrayal, loss and hardship, before they both decide to run for governor, unaware they are brothers... Download and start listening now!

    " Yuck. Only made it through this because I'm stuck on the couch sick. Horrible. Won't read Archer again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 12/8/2013

    " Interesting but a little predictable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/2/2013

    " I'd really like to give this book 3.5 stars. It's a good book, with an interesting story, but not as good as Archers Prisoner of Birth. It was a casual read until you get close to the end, then it becomes much more gripping. All in all, I think I'd recommend it. "

    " Had the makings of a great story (twins separated at birth) but it was 200 pages too long and although the last 100 pages (I skipped a lot) was intense I couldn't give it more than 2 stars. "

    " Buku2 Mr.Archer sudah lama saya baca,temanya mirip2,biasanya tentang 2 orang yang kontras,mereka bisa bersahabat bisa juga bermusuhan. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Debi | 5/23/2011

    " Very stiff and dry. The story of twins parted at birth and then finding out late in life was ok, but a lot of the plot twists did not ring true and the characters had absolutely no life in them. Probably won't read Archer again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 woody | 10/22/2010

    " Enjoyable book for the most part. Story about twins separated at birth spanning 40+ years. Interesting, but a bit hokey at times, kind of over the top coincidences that bring them together. I would say 3 1/2 stars. "
