Description

Harry didn’t give a thought to the fact he would be among the first passengers to cross the Atlantic non-stop, as he could only think about his son, and how much he’d been looking forward to going up to Cambridge to begin his first year at university. As to be expected from a master storyteller, the books are incredibly well written with just the right amount of detail, just the right amount of suspense all served up with well written, flowing prose. Archer begins in the late 1950s with Harry and Emma taking the lead and moves on to Don Pedro Martinez, Cedric Hardcastle, a bluff Yorkshireman and dowdy old banker who plays a significant role, Major Alex Fisher, Giles Barrington, Sebastian and Jessica Clifton, and Don Pedro’s son Diego. Neste volume, Jeffrey Archer dá continuidade à saga das famílias Clifton e Barrington, mas, na minha opinião este livro prendeu-se mais com os meandros dos negócios e da política e menos com as suas personagens.

We do not have many details and the characters’ background to have a complete idea of what the Clifton Chronicles are about. Hardcastle is the Chairman of the Farthing Bank and he will join forces with the Barrington’s to try and thwart Don Pedro Martinez and his sons.He served five years as a Member of Parliament in the House of Commons and has served twenty-seven years as a Member of the House of Lords.

The Queen Mother, having been properly addressed earlier as Your Majesty, is then described as HRH the Queen Mother. If there was ever a hope of some meaning in the saga of the Cliftons before, it is quickly removed in this book. 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. Emma reaches the morgue to see the sole victim’s body, finding that it belongs to Bruno, Sebastian’s friend.Rather, the author spends unusually long time just defining the evil guys and their plots and then working out the counter-response of the heroes. By the standards of what goes as the baddies in books of our time, the villains of the novel - while without a shade of grey - are almost as mild as those in Jane Austin novels or equivalent of street thugs in their power and influence.
