Jeffrey Archer Books Overview

Shall We Tell the President?

What the President Doesn’t Know May Kill Her After decades of struggle, sacrifice, and personal tragedy, Florentyna Kane has finally attained her goal the presidency of the United States. Yet even as she gives her inaugural speech, those who oppose her are plotting to silence her forever. Only one man knows when the assassins will strike, and even he doesn’t know where, how, or most importantly, who they are. He has only six days to track down the senator at the heart of the cold blooded conspiracy. Six days in which he can waste no time, leave no trail, and trust no one. One wrong word, one false move, and both a nation and a dream will crumble. Master storyteller Jeffrey Archer keeps the pace sizzling in this daring political thriller where treason and betrayal threaten to topple an American dynasty.

Kane and Abel

Available in an all new CD production, New York Times bestselling author Jeffrey Archer’s epic tale of three generations warring for the love of a dream, the loss of an empire, and the lure of a fortuneIn April 15, 1906, two baby boys entered the world. One was born to a life of prosperity and ease, the other to a world of hardship and struggle. On different sides of the globe, they grew up one shaped by a luxurious upbringing, fine schools, and a history he read; the other well tempered by war, slavery, and the history he was part of. William Lowell Kane, scion of a Boston banking family, and Abel Rosnovski, penniless Polish immigrant one is gold, the other steel. Rosnovski is Kane’s ultimate adversary, while Kane embodies everything that Rosnovski stands against. In their relentless battle, both men know that there can be only one victor and one vanquished.

The Prodigal Daughter

With a will of steel, Polish immigrant Florentyna Rosnovski is indeed Abel’s daughter. She shares with her father a love of America, his ideals, and his dream for the future. But she wants more to be the first female president. Golden boy Richard Kane was born into a life of luxury. The scion of a banking magnate he is successful, handsome, and determined to carve his own path in the world and to build a future with the woman he loves. With Florentyna’s ultimate goal only a heartbeat away, both are about to discover the shattering price of power as a titanic battle of betrayal and deception reaches out from the past a blood feud between two generations that threatens to destroy everything Florentyna and Richard have fought to achieve.

Only Time Will Tell

The ‘Clifton Chronicles’ is Jeffrey Archer’s most ambitious work in four decades as an international bestselling author. The epic tale of Harry Clifton’s life begins in 1920, with the chilling words, ‘I was told that my father was killed in the war’. But it will be another twenty years before Harry discovers how his father really died, which will only lead him to question: who was his father? Is he the son of Arthur Clifton, a stevedore who worked in Bristol docks, or the first born son of a scion of West Country society, whose family owns a shipping line? ‘Only Time Will Tell‘ covers the years from 1920 to 1940, and includes a cast of memorable characters that ‘The Times’ has compared to ‘The Forsyte Saga’. Volume one takes us from the ravages of the Great War to the outbreak of the Second World War, when Harry must decide whether to take up a place at Oxford, or join the navy and go to war with Hitler’s Germany. In Jeffrey Archer’s masterful hands, the reader is taken on a journey that they won’t want to end, and when you turn the last page of this unforgettable yarn, you will be faced with a dilemma that neither you, nor Harry Clifton could have anticipated.

First Among Equals

TO LEAD A NATIONFrom Jeffrey Archer, author of the bestselling Kane & Abel, comes this spellbinding tale in its complete and original form, published for the first time in the U.S. First Among Equals chronicles the lives of four extraordinary men who battle for a prize that only one of them can win ;to become Prime Minister. CHARLES SEYMOUR: An accident of birth kept him from an earldom, but nothing and no one can keep him from what he believes is his destiny. ANDREW FRASER: His father was a football hero to thousands. Andrew intends to be a political hero to millions. SIMON KERSLAKE: Born not quite of the true upper class, Simon is determined to lift himself as high as his dreams and the voters allow. RAY GOULD: Son of a Leeds butcher, Ray realizes early on that his keen intellect and his driving ambition can raise him from the back streets to No. 10 Downing Street. Through three tumultuous decades of bitter rivalry, they fight for Britain’s most powerful office ;a rivalry that sets honor against deceit, love against hate, and loyalty against betrayal.

A Matter of Honor

It seems innocent enough. A disgraced British colonel bequeaths a mysterious letter to his only son. But the moment Adam Scott opens the yellowing envelope, he sets into motion a deadly chain of events that threatens to shake the very foundations of the free world. Within days, Adam’s lover is brutally murdered and he’s running for his life through the great cities of Europe, pursued not only by the KGB, but by the CIA and his own countrymen as well. Their common intent is to kill him before the truth comes out. While powerful men in smoke filled rooms plot ever more ingenious means of destroying him, Adam finds himself betrayed and abandoned even by those he holds most dear. When at last he comes to understand what he is in possession of, he’s even more determined to protect it, for it’s more than a matter of life and death it’s A Matter of Honor.

As the Crow Flies

Charlie Trumper’s earliest memory is of hearing his grandfather’s sales patter from behind his costermonger’s barrow. When Grandpa Charlie dies, young Charlie wants nothing more than to follow in his footsteps his burning ambition is to own a shop that will sell everything: ‘The Biggest Barrow in the World’. Charlie’s progress from the teeming streets of Whitechapel to the elegance of Chelsea Terrace is only a few miles As the Crow Flies. But in Jeffrey Archer’s expert hands it becomes an epic journey through the triumphs and disasters of the century, as Charlie follows a thread of love, ambition and revenge to fulfil the dream his grandfather inspired. ‘Monumentally gripping…
a compulsive epic’ ‘Mail on Sunday’.

Honor Among Thieves

Spring, 1994, Washington, D.C. While the Clinton Administration grapples with its domestic policies, a sinister plot is being masterminded six thousand miles away in Baghdad. By using $100 million as bait and spinning a deadly web of corruption, forgery, and terror, Saddam Hussein seeks to embarrass the U.S. with the ultimate revenge: to steal a treasured historical document and then destroy it before the world’s media on July 4, 1994. As the countdown to Independence day begins, two agents stand in the way of his nearly flawless plan: Scott Bradley, a rising star in the CIA who is desperate to prove his patriotism, and Hannah Kopec, the stunning Mossad operative who has already lost so much that she fears nothing and trusts no one. Their unrelenting quest to prevent what would undoubtedly be the most humiliating day in U.S. history takes them across four continents and climaxes in a dramatic, triple twist ending. Ingeniously plotted and as up to the minute as today’s headlines, Honor Among Thieves resonates with the brilliant pace that is the trademark of master storyteller Jeffrey Archer.

The Fourth Estate

In a stunning display of storytelling, reminiscent of his blockbuster Kane & Abel, Jeffrey Archer creates two extraordinary protagonists whose life stories could have been taken from today’s headlines, and pits them against each other as each strives to be the first to create a global media empire and become the most powerful man on earth. Lubji Hoch breaks the bonds of his humble beginnings as the son of an illiterate Jewish peasant, escapes the Nazis, changes his name to Richard Armstrong, becomes a decorated officer in the British army and ultimately finds himself in Berlin, where his sharp mind and killer instincts win him the opportunity to head up a floundering newspaper. As rival papers in the city fail in the wake of his ruthlessness, he is poised to move on to even greater things. On the other side of the world, in Australia, Keith Townsend, son of a millionaire newspaper owner, is being groomed to follow in his father’s footsteps. Private schools, an Oxford degree and a position at a London newspaper lead him up to the time of his father’s death, when he takes over the family business. His energy and brilliant strategic thinking quickly make him the leading newspaper publisher in Australia. Yet he, too, longs to move on to the world stage. Armstrong’s and Townsend’s ambitions collide on a global scale. Each controls a mass circulation British tabloid and a New York daily newspaper that is losing money. Each suddenly finds himself threatened by financial disaster brought on by enormous debts. Both become desperate to save their crumbling empires. One ends up flying his private jet to his yacht in Nice and ordering the captain to sail out to sea. The other prepares a press release to announce that he is about to go bankrupt. The Fourth Estate is the timely and compelling story of two men who, though they come from totally different backgrounds, stand face to face on the highest precipice, prepared to risk everything to beat each other and control the biggest media empire in the world.

The Eleventh Commandment

Connor Fitzgerald is a professional’s professional. Holder of the Medal of Honor. Devoted family man. Servant of his country. But for the past twenty eight years, Fitzgerald has been leading a double life as the CIA’s most deadly assassin. And only days before his retirement from the CIA, he comes across an enemy who, for the first time, even he cannot handle. The enemy is his own boss Helen Dexter the director of the CIA. Dexter’s stranglehold on the agency is threatened by one decision, and her only hope of survival is to destroy Fitzgerald. Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, a formidable new foe is threatening the United States: a ruthless hard line Russian president, who is determined to force a new military confrontation between the two superpowers. From emergency meetings in the Oval Office to a Russian mafya boss’s luxurious hideaway outside St. Petersburg, The Eleventh Commandment sweeps readers off their feet from the first paragraph. As in Jeffrey Archer’s previous bestsellers, The Eleventh Commandment features enough plot twisting ingenuity, exotic characterization, and narrative surprise to take the art of thriller writing to a new level. In his latest novel, Jeffrey Archer is at the peak of his page turning powers.

The Accused

A tense courtroom drama with a difference. The audience will act as the jury.

Sons of Fortune

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING author Jeffrey Archer returns with a powerful tale of twins separated by fate and reunited by destiny. In Hartford, Connecticut, in the late 1940s, a set of twins is parted at birth not by accident. Nat Cartwright goes home with his parents, a schoolteacher and an insurance salesman, while his twin brother begins his days as Fletcher Davenport, son of a millionaire and his society wife. During the 1950s and 1960s, the two brothers grow up apart, following similar paths that take them in different directions. Nat leaves college at the University of Connecticut to serve in Vietnam, then finishes school, earns his MBA, and becomes a successful currency dealer. Fletcher, meanwhile, graduates from Yale University with a bachelor’s and a law degree, going on to distinguish himself as a criminal defense lawyer. At various times in their lives, both men are confronted with challenges and obstacles, tragedy and betrayal, loss and hardship, before they both decide to run for governor, unaware they are brothers…
. In the tradition of Jeffrey Archer’s most popular books, Sons of Fortune is as much a chronicle of a nation in transition as it is the story of the making of these two men and how they eventually discover the truth and its tragic consequences.

False Impression

Why was an elegant lady brutally murdered the night before 9/11?

Why was a successful New York banker not surprised to receive a woman’s left ear in the morning mail?

Why did a top Manhattan lawyer work only for one client, but never charge a fee?

Why did a young woman with a bright career steal a priceless Van Gogh painting?
Why was an Olympic gymnast paid a million dollars an assignment when she didn’t have a bank account?

Why was an honors graduate working as a temporary secretary after inheriting a fortune?

Why was an English Countess ready to kill the banker, the lawyer and the gymnast even if it meant spending the rest of her life in jail?

Why was a Japanese steel magnate happy to hand over $50,000,000 to a woman he had only met once?

Why was a senior FBI agent trying to work out the connection between these eight apparently innocent individuals?

All these questions are answered in Jeffrey Archer’s latest audiobook, False Impression, but not before a breathtaking journey of twists and turns that will take listeners from New York to London to Bucharest and on to Tokyo, and finally a sleepy English village, where the mystery of Van Gogh’s last painting will finally be resolved.

And only then will listeners discover that Van Gogh’s Self-portrait with Bandaged Ear has a secret of its own that acts as the final twist in this unforgettable yarn.

A Prisoner of Birth

International bestseller and master storyteller Jeffrey Archer is at the very top of his game in a story of fate and fortune, redemption and revenge.

If Danny Cartwright had proposed to Beth Wilson the day before, or the day after, he would not have been arrested and charged with the murder of his best friend. But when the four prosecution witnesses are a barrister, a popular actor, an aristocrat, and the youngest partner in an established firm’s history, who is going to believe your side of the story?

Danny is sentenced to twenty two years and sent to Belmarsh prison, the highest security jail in the land, from where no inmate has ever escaped.

However, Spencer Craig, Lawrence Davenport, Gerald Payne, and Toby Mortimer all underestimate Danny s determination to seek revenge, and Beth s relentless quest to pursue justice, which ends up with all four fighting for their lives,

Thus begins Jeffrey Archer s most powerful novel since Kane and Abel, with a cast of characters that will remain with you long after you ve turned the last page.

And if that is not enough, prepare for an ending that will shock even the most ardent of Archer s fans.

Paths of Glory

Some people have dreams that are so magnificent that if they were to achieve them, their place in history would be guaranteed. People like Christopher Columbus, Isaac Newton, Florence Nightingale, Thomas Edison, Nancy Astor, Charles Lindbergh, Amy Johnson, Edmund Hilary and Neil Armstrong their unparalleled success has made their stories into legend.
But what if one man had such a dream, and once he d achieved it, there was no proof that he had fulfilled his ambition?
Jeffrey Archer’s new novel, Paths of Glory, is the story of such a man George Mallory. Born in 1886, he was a brilliant student who became part of the Bloomsbury Group at Cambridge in the early twentieth century and served in the Royal Garrison Artillery during World War I. After the war, he married, had three children, and would have spent the rest of his life as a schoolteacher, but for his love of mountain climbing.
Mallory once told a reporter that he wanted to climb Mt. Everest, because it is there. On his third try in 1924, at age thirty seven, he was last seen four hundred feet from the top. His body was found in 1999, and it remains a mystery whether he and his climbing partner, Andrew Irvine, ever reached the summit.
In fact, not until you ve turned the last page of Archer s extraordinary novel will you be able to decide if George Mallory should be added to that list of legends, while another name would have to be removed. Paths of Glory is truly a triumph.

To Cut a Long Story Short

The latest short story collection from Britain’s bestselling writer, ‘the greatest storyteller of our age’. The fourteen new stories in To Cut a Long Story Short follow in the tradition of Jeffrey Archer’s storytelling. An elderly man who doesn’t know which of his relations to leave his fortune to, declares himself bankrupt to find out who really cares about him only to be surprised by the results. A man listens in on a conversation on a crossed line, which changes his whole life. A South African, a long standing believer in apartheid, has a change of heart. A criminal who wants the police to catch him so he can live off his ill gotten gains. Two old friends find themselves on opposite sides in a murder case. A Henry Moore statue disappears and reappears in a different form. A study of seven men, each of whom believes he should have the job of the man immediately above him. This collection is Archer’s finest to date. /Content /EditorialReview EditorialReview Source Amazon. com Review /Source Content To Cut a Long Story Short reads like a series of modern fairy tales. In each story, Jeffrey Archer presents a moral problem, and a character finds himself tested in a dark hour. Evil manifests itself in the form of selfish relatives, corrupt cops, racist men. Good arrives in the form of unselfish minor characters who suddenly emerge as the real center of the story, or lost souls who come out the other side of corruption and renounce their old ways.

In ‘The Endgame’ Cornelius Barrington decides to fake a bankruptcy. As one of the richest men in his small town, he hopes his sudden plunge into poverty will reveal the true character of his friends and relatives. He calls in debts, asks to borrow money from those he has lent to in the past, only to be turned away time and again.

After lunch Cornelius took a bus into town a novel experience. It was some time before he located a bus stop, and then he discovered that the conductor didn’t have change for a twenty pound note. His first call after he had been dropped off in the town centre was to the local estate agent, who didn’t seem surprised to see him. Cornelius was delighted to find how quickly the rumour of his financial demise must be spreading.

‘The Endgame’ is a complex tale with a clear message. Not all the stories in To Cut a Long Story Short attempt such weightiness. ‘The Expert Witness’ is a delightful parody of the legal system, a portrait of two pub mates a lawyer and an expert witness who often find themselves facing off in the courtroom, pretending not to know each other. Certain pieces glimpses, vignettes last a mere two pages, but whatever the length or weight of the story, throughout this collection Archer has a light touch, a quick wit, and a thorough understanding of the mechanics of suspense.

In another tale of deception, ‘The Commissioner,’ a Bombay con artist ends up in the morgue after he uses the police chief as bait in his latest scam. ‘The Perfect Murder’ reveals how a convict manages to remove an old enemy while he’s locked up in jail, and then set up two prison officers as his alibi. In ‘Charity Begins at Home,’ an accountant realizes he has achieved nothing in his life, and sets out to make a fortune before he retires. And then there is Archer’s favorite, ‘In the Eye of the Beholder,’ in which a handsome star athlete falls in love with a three-hundred-pound woman…
who happens to be the ninth-richest woman in Italy.

On the last day of the trial, his mother dies, and the world’s press accompany him to the funeral. On returning to prison, he’s placed on the lifer’s wing, where a cellmate sells his story to the tabloids. Prisoners and guards routinely line up outside his cell to ask for his autograph, to write letters, and to seek advice on their appeals. For twenty two days, Archer was locked in a cell with a murderer and a drug baron. He decided to use that time to write an hour by hour diary, detailing the worst three weeks of his life. When A Prison Diary was published in England, it was condemned by the prison authorities, and praised by the critics.

Heaven

n July 19, 2001, after a perjury conviction, Jeffrey Archer international bestselling author, now known as Prisoner FF 8282 was sentenced to four years in prison and spent the first twenty two days in HMP Belmarsh, a high security prison in South London that houses some of Britain’s most violent criminals. During those three weeks, Archer contemplates suicide; his mother dies, and a hundred photographers follow him when he’s allowed out to attend her funeral; he’s moved to death row because it’s the only place with enough security to protect him, a high profile prisoner; his cellmate sells a story to the tabloids, prompting Archer’s move to solitary; and prisoners and guards routinely line up outside his cell to ask him to sign books or to ask for advice about their own writing. A Prison Diary is his unforgettable account of these events.

The Gospel According to Judas by Benjamin Iscariot

‘The very name of ‘Judas’ raises among Christians an instinctive reaction of criticism and condemnation The betrayal of Judas remains a mystery.’ Pope Benedict XVI, October 2006 The Gospel According to Judas, by Benjamin Iscariot sheds new light on the the mystery of Judas including his motives for the betrayal and what happened to him after the crucifixion by retelling the story of Jesus through the eyes of Judas, using the canonical texts as its basic point of reference. Ostensibly written by Judas’s son, Benjamin, and following the narrative style of the Gospels, this re creation is provocative, compelling, and controversial. The Gospel According to Judas, by Benjamin Iscariot is the result of an intense collaboration between a storyteller and a scholar: Jeffrey Archer and Francis J. Moloney. Their brilliant work bold and simple is a compelling story for twenty first century readers, while maintaining an authenticity that would be credible to a first century Christian or Jew.
