The next book, Mightier Than the Sword will be published on 24 February 2015 [4] and Archer has stated that Margaret Thatcher will make an appearance. Owen and the mortician were not surprised by this predictable reaction of a mother at the first sight of her dead son, but they were shocked when she said quietly, “That’s not Sebastian. There's one heartbreaking loss that totally took me by surprise and reminded me why I love Archer's writing so much. I have read all the previous books in The Clifton Chronicles and looked forward to this one with great anticipation.

In a last-ditch revenge effort, he tries to get the IRA to bomb the MV Buckingham on its way to New York.Historical characters and events make their appearance on a regular basis including a cameo by Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal and British Labour leader and future Prime Minister Harold Wilson. Emma had once read that in times of personal tragedy, all anyone wanted to do was turn the clock back. Autore che non conoscevo, ho iniziato con un libro (il primo della serie dei Clifton) acquistato con il Giornale, poi il secondo e infine il terzo e poi. Set in England and spanning the years 1957-1964 we follow the Clifton-Barrington family saga in their face off with Don Pedro Martinez, a smuggler who became a staunch enemy in the preceding book and is hell-bent to destroying them. Archer also continues to present an unremarkable prose, but one cannot take away from him his ability to surprise the reader over and over.

Without such a glue, the tale could at best be used to show some sort of philosophical meaninglessness of life, where events that appear extremely important in real time turn at best into mildly interesting historic facts later.

Archer's characters, even in the midst of blazing run-ins maintain their British elegance and dry sense of humour. I'm so disappointed with this book that it's heartbreaking for me, especially since Jeffrey Archer is one of my favourite authors. All the while, Harry and Emma's other child, Jessica, is making a name for herself in the art world and finding love in all the right places.

The suspense builds through the entire book and then on the last page (the same in each book), you are left hanging - impossible to imagine the fate of your favorite characters.He is the only author ever to have been a number one bestseller in fiction (nineteen times), short stories (four times) and non-fiction (The Prison Diaries). My review in a nutshell is that Be Careful What You Wish For is an awesome follow up to Best Kept Secret and should not be read without starting the first in the series. I suspect there will be quite a few readers who begin to express exasperation at Archer's refusal to end the story and tie up all the loose ends. The story opens in 1957 right where Best Kept Secret left off and answers the question of who survived the car crash involving Sebastian and Bruno.

I love my books and read different authors for different reasons and Jeffrey Archer is, to me anyway, an exhilarating story teller that leaves you wanting more. Similar to the previous books, the Barringtons/Clifton's constantly try to thwart the devastating blows that are thrown their way by ruthless people who only want to see their demise. Emma nodded and began pacing restlessly up and down the corridor, jumbled thoughts replacing jumbled memories.He was educated at Wellington School, and Brasenose College, Oxford, where he was President of the University Athletics Club, and went on to run the 100 yards in 9.
