New York Times bestseller Jeffrey Archer continues his beloved Clifton Chronicle series as Harry and Emma finally begin building a happy life—but a dangerous family enemy is about to resurface Best Kept Secret opens a moment after the end of The Sins of the Father, with the resolution of the trial and the triumphant marriage of Harry Clifton and Elizabeth Barrington, finally uniting their family. Harry, now a bestselling novelist, Emma, their son Sebastian, and orphaned Jessica make a new life for themselves, but all is not as happy and secure as it could be. Emma's brother, Giles, is engaged to a woman who may be more interested in Barrington's fortune and title than in a long and happy marriage. And Sebastian, though he is bright, isn't quite the hard worker that his father was at school, and finds a hard time resisting the temptations that his somewhat unsavory friends provide.It all comes to a head when a new villain is uncovered, a face from the past with grudges against both Harry and Giles—Fisher, who tortured Harry at school and later took credit for Giles' heroics during the war. Fisher teams up with Giles' now ex-wife to wreak havoc on Giles' latest election as well as meddle with affairs inside Barringtons, while Harry and Emma must deal with a new scheme that Sebastian has unwittingly fallen into with a supposed friend. The drama continues for Harry Clifton and his family, bringing this mesmerizing saga into the 1960s.

Trudno w to uwierzyć, ale każdy kolejny tom sagi Cliftonów jest lepszy niż poprzedni. Aż strach pomyśleć co się stanie w Be Careful What You Wish, która to w marcu pojawi się w Wielkiej Brytanii. Mam nadzieję że Rebis nie będzie zbyt długo zwlekał, i gdzieś na wakacje wypuści czwarty tom, było by mi...
This third installment of Jeffrey Archer's Clifton Chronicles continues in melodramatic, soap-opera style but begins moving on to the next generation with the focus beginning to shift from Harry and Emma to their son Sebastian.Following Archer's trademark cliffhanger from The Sins of the Father, the...
Pisałem o tym już kilka razy, a pewnie kolejnych kilka znowu to napiszę: Jeffrey Archer jest jak ten wąż, który połyka własny ogon. Zadziwia mnie, że pisarz z takim talentem idzie na łatwiznę, i zamiast na “starsze lata” przysiąść nad tekstem i pokazać, że jak się postara, to wciąż potrafi czytelnik...
