This was a man
Seventh novel in the Clifton Chronicles by G Archer - astounding finish. Never saw it coming! Was in tears - a grown man in tears - such descriptive that it pulled me in totally.
The Clifton Chronicles.
When you start at volume 1,Jeffrey Archer has you hooked until you reach the end of This was a Man. A brilliant read.
As always Archer delivers a great story. This final instalment was no exception. The characters were easy to follow as was the plot, a sad ending that ensures the series came to a natural end. Really enjoyed it.
