Description

International bestselling author Jeffrey Archer’s mesmerizing saga of the Clifton and Barrington families continues.

London, 1945. Who shall inherit the Barrington family fortune? The vote in the House of Lords has ended in a tie. The Lord Chancellor’s deciding vote will cast a long shadow on the lives of Harry Clifton and Giles Barrington. Harry returns to America to promote his latest novel while Emma goes in search of the little girl who was found abandoned in her father’s office on the night he was killed. When the general election is called, Giles Barrington has to defend his seat in the House of Commons and is horrified to discover who the Conservatives select to stand against him. But it is Sebastian Clifton, Harry and Emma’s son, who ultimately influences his uncle’s fate.

“One of the top ten storytellers in the world.”
Los Angeles Times


In 1957, Sebastian wins a scholarship to Cambridge, and a new generation of the Clifton family marches onto the page. But after Sebastian is expelled from school, he unwittingly becomes caught up in an international art fraud involving a Rodin statue that is worth far more than the sum it raises at auction. Does he become a millionaire? Does he go to Cambridge? Is his life in danger? Best Kept Secret, the third volume in Archer’s bestselling series, will answer all these questions but, once again, pose so many more…

“[A] PAGE-TURNING, HEART-STOPPING SAGA.”
—Publishers Weekly on Sins of the Father

    From British books lover
    I certainly hope there are more books in this series otherwise, reviewing this book as the last of a series, I would have to give it an extremely negative review. I have enjoyed all of Archer's books but this one has truly turned me off. It was like playing a cruel joke to publish this book with such an ending.

    There are 5 books in this series, so the ending didn't bother me.

    I agree. Great read until the end, looks like he got tired of writing it. Unless he is going to have a fourth in the series

    Had me enthralled and loving it until the extremely abrupt and disappointing ending - appears he Mr. Archer lost interest and just stopped writing.
