About this deal

I have learned through Jeffrey Archer that with greatness comes a whole sort of problems and the only way to make it through is by thinking two steps ahead of the enemy. She gave the young receptionist her name, and the cheerful smile on the girl’s face was replaced with a look of pity. No family saga would be complete without a villain, and this book has a good one, a well-drawn and believable character whose motivations are understandable. We do not have many details and the characters’ background to have a complete idea of what the Clifton Chronicles are about. In any conversation, it's often something that seems quite insignificant at the time that gives you the piece of information you're looking for.

A few minutes later Marsden drove through a set of wrought-iron gates that never closed, before drawing up outside the main entrance of the hospital. Complete with another stunning Archer cliffhanger, the novel ends just as the reader is hopeless hooked. This is due to the fact that Archer felt that he could not end the series without suddenly killing Harry Clifton, the protagonist of the series so he decided to extend the series. The IRA, finding out that he intended to short them the bounty fee, holds him at gunpoint at the novel’s cliffhanger ending.I'm still reeling over one sadly inevitable outcome and am genuinely on edge as to the fate of some of my favourite characters.

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. I'm so disappointed with this book that it's heartbreaking for me, especially since Jeffrey Archer is one of my favourite authors. Archer's constant development of ideas set against historical events proves seamless, though he uses said events only in passing, unlike Follett or Rutherfurd in their respective multi-generational series.Aside from Hardcastle, there are a number of impactful characters like Robert Bingham, the fish paste king; Clive Bingham his son who wants to marry Jessica; Cabinet Secretary Alan Redmayne; Samantha Sullivan who has fallen in love with Sebastian; Susie Lampton, Alex Fisher’s wife who is somewhat of a double crosser; Karl Otto Lunsdorf, a former member of the Nazi SS and Martinez’s righthand man, among others. The only thing that surpasses their bad deeds in prosaicness is the banality of the good guys' response despite all their wealth, connections and state power.

It keeps trying to evoke reader emotions through the same story tricks used frequently in the previous books but they are no longer charming, if not outright annoying. If there was ever a hope of some meaning in the saga of the Cliftons before, it is quickly removed in this book. Be Careful What You Wish For showcases the master storyteller's talent as never before - when the Clifton and Barrington families march forward into the sixties, in this epic tale of love, revenge, ambition and betrayal. You will be astonished and at the same time equally keen to know about the turn of events that has taken place in the end.Continuing with the fourth installment of Clifton Chronicles, this takes the reader through the lives of the Barrington and Clifton families. Jeffrey Archer forces me, and other readers alike, to wait a whole year before we can get the book 5 in the Clifton Chronicles?
