This is the fifth volume of the Clifton Chronicles. The story continues for the Clifton and Barrington families. The years were set from 1964 to 1970. In 1970, Harry Clifton was 50 years old, his wife Emma Barrington was one year younger and their son Sebastian was 30 years. Their long-time adversaries, Major Alex Fisher and Lady Virginia Fenwick continued to cause problems to Emma Barrington and her brother Sir Giles Barrington.
I read boardroom tussles, corporate manoeuvres and courtroom dramas in this volume. Jeffrey Archer was in his territory and it was very captivating to read the twists and turns to see which party had the upper hands.
It was difficult to put the book down and it did not take me long to complete it. I enjoyed reading this fifth volume of the Clifton Chronicle and now eagerly waiting the sixth volume “Cometh the Hour” in early 2016.
