Publisher Description

Heads You Win is international #1 bestseller Jeffrey Archer’s most ambitious and creative work since Kane and Abel, with a final twist that will shock even his most ardent of fans.

Leningrad, Russia, 1968: From an early age it is clear that Alexander Karpenko is destined to lead his countrymen. But when his father is assassinated by the KGB for defying the state, Alexander and his mother will have to escape Russia if they hope to survive. At the docks, they have an irreversible choice: board a container ship bound for America or one bound for Great Britain. Alexander leaves the choice to a toss of a coin…

In a single moment, a double twist decides Alexander’s future. During an epic tale, spanning two continents and thirty years, we follow Alexander through triumph and defeat as he sets out on parallel lives as Alex in New York and Sasha in London. As this unique story unfolds, both come to realize that to find their destiny they must face the past they left behind as Alexander in Russia.

Great read

Kane and Abel 2.0, just not quite the brilliant classic.

The ending? I’m missing so much

I was so eager to understand how these two lives would tie in. I was reading as two separate paths until the author had those paths cross. Which had me scratching my head at the ending. Feeling disappointed that wasn’t resolved. Otherwise interesting read.

Same Old, Same Old

Anyone who’s read the Clifton Chronicles will find themselves wondering if these are the exact same characters. Archer seems to only know how to write about specific types of people in markedly similar situations. The ending is rushed and doesn’t fit with the rest of the book, nor does it make much sense conceptually.
