With war between Britian and Germany on the immediate horizon, Harry Clifton has joined the merchant marines to escape long buried family secrets that have just come to light. And it isn't long before war is upon them. On the very day that Britain declares war on Germany, a U-boat sinks Harry's ship. While recovering on the SS Kansas Star, a passing American cruise liner, Harry seizes on the chance to escape his tangled past by stealing the identity of an American killed in the explosion.

But upon landing in America, he quickly finds how mistaken he was when he--as Tom Bradshaw--is arrested for murder. Without any way of knowing the details of the charges, or of contacting his family across the Atlantic, or of even proving that he is anyone other than Bradshaw, Harry Clifton is trapped behind bars and chained to a past that is far worst than the one he had hoped to escape.

On the heels of the international bestseller Only Time Will Tell, Jeffrey Archer picks up the sweeping story where he left off with Sins of the Father, the next installment Archer's most ambitious series.

  • “Although the plot twists and cliff-hangers seem sensational in spots, Archer’s panache and sharp repartee maintain the excitement and sheer fun of reading this literary master.”

    " This is the second book of the Harry Clifton Chronicles. Since i loved the first book, Only Time Will Tell, i got right back into this story Harry continues to be the central character but the others are well defined. Archer leaves another cliffhanger and i look forward to book 3 This book did not get as good a rating as the first one but i do think you would miss a lot if you didn't read Only Time Will Tell first. "

    " The book is more of a 2.5*. I read it expecting some of the pizazz of his earlier books e.g. Kane & Abel, not a penny more, not a penny less, a prisoner of birth, but alas, there was none of that. I don't know if I'll read the remaining books in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meera Srikant | 12/11/2013

    " At least readable with some suspense. Should have been just one book. It ends and a third part seems to be in the pipeline. But whether it can sustain the interest is a big question. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diana Maynard | 12/10/2013

    " Love this book, but didn't realise it was part 2 of a series. Will have to go back and read the firts one afterwards. I don't think you miss anything by reading this without the first one, but it might be easier to remember who all the characters are. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pavan Dharanipragada | 11/24/2013

    " I did not like the book too much because I haven't read the previous entry. Even then many events in the novel seemed rather too convenient. "
