      Synopsis

      Danny Cartwright and Spencer Craig were born on different sides of the track. Danny, an East End Cockney, leaves Clement Attlee Comprehensive School at the age of 15 to take up a job at a local garage. He falls in love with Beth, the boss' daughter, and asks her to marry him. Spencer Craig resides in the West End. A graduate of an English public school and Cambridge University. After leaving university he becomes a criminal barrister and is soon tipped to be the youngest Queen's Counsel of his generation. Danny and Beth travel up to the West End to celebrate their engagement. They end the evening in a wine bar where Spencer Craig is also celebrating - his 30th birthday, along with a select group of university chums. Their lives will never be the same again. For, an hour later, one of them is arrested for murder, while the other ends up as the Prosecution's chief witness in an Old Bailey trial.

      • Count of Monte Cristo. but modern
        From Amazon

        Borrows heavily on the Count of Monte Cristo but this is Jeffery Archer to the core. Loved it@!

      • Book
        From Amazon

        This book is an excellent read, find it difficult to put down, as always Jeffrey Archer is a compelling author.

      • Edge-of-your-seat thriller
        From Amazon

        I was pleasantly surprised. One of those books that I couldn't put down. I even put it in the cookbook holder while I was washing dishes.

      • A Prisoner of Birth - Best Read In A Long Time
        From Amazon

        We are avid readers. This book was passed to us by a friend who told us it was one of the best books she'd ever read. Both my husband and I read the book while on vacation in St. Martin and passed it on to some people we met there. We both agree it's the best book we've read in a long time. While in Florida this winter, we told a friend about it and he tried to borrow it from the local library without success. So, I checked with Amazon, found & ordered the book, and gave it to him before we left there for NJ. I believe he's reading it now and loving it. :-)

      • Riveting audio book!
        From Amazon

        Jeffrey Archer can spin an amazing tale, but Roger Allam sure can read it!! I picked up this audio book at my local library for a car trip, but I found that I needed to bring it into the house by CD 3. I just couldn't put it down! Archer's plot is captivating, and Allam's skillful portrayal of each character draws you in to the book. I highly recommend this as one of the best mystery audio books of the year. It's long, fascinating, and full of good plot twists.
