In Whitehall, Giles Barrington discovers the truth about his wife Karin from the Cabinet Secretary. Is she a spy or a pawn in a larger game? Harry Clifton sets out to write his magnum opus, while his wife Emma completes her ten years as Chairman of the Bristol Royal Infirmary, and receives an unexpected call from Margaret Thatcher offering her a job. Sebastian Clifton becomes chairman of Farthings Kaufman bank, but only after Hakim Bishara has to resign for personal reasons. Sebastian and Samantha's talented daughter, Jessica, is expelled from the Slade School of Fine Art, but her aunt Grace comes to her rescue. Meanwhile, Lady Virginia is about to flee the country to avoid her creditors when the Duchess of Hertford dies, and she sees another opportunity to clear her debts and finally trump the Cliftons and Barringtons. In a devastating twist, tragedy engulfs the Clifton family when one of them receives a shocking diagnosis that will throw all their lives into turmoil.

7

I really find the characters in these chronicles formulaic and unpleasant. I would never invite them to my dinner parties.

How Jeffrey Archer can hold a reader for 7 books is beyond me! In future, I wish he could spew books at a faster pace.

This is the seventh and final volume of the Clifton Chronicles. A tear-jerking ending to a really good series. Not quite the Forsyte Saga but kudos to Archer for the chutzpah to write a series covering a century.

Great wrap up to a wonderful series. I just finished the last of the Clifton Chronicles. Seven books in the series and each one a very fast moving detailed read - until book 7 where Jeffrey Archer seemed to feel the need to make it another 400+ page novel so filled it with details on playing rugby and British Parliamentary workings. As great as Harry Clifton's story was, the two women stole the series. Emma Barrington Clifton blazed a path for women and Lady Virginia Fenwick proved to be one shrewd manipulative woman who worked hard to get what she wanted by hook or by crook.

on the whole I give the series 5/5 stars. (this book a 4/5)

The final book of a seven book chronicle.....excellent. Archer did a beautiful job of following a family to the end. Very good book.

A great series! I think I'll make a point of starting all over again and doing a read through book by book. Enough time had lapsed since reading the previous instalment I kind of lost track of some of the characters and their places in the novel.
