About this deal

I kept saying to myself "just to the end of the chapter" but had to carry on to find out how they got out of the predicament everybody was always left in.

Martinez will never get over the death of his son despite the fact it is his own fault and seeks revenge against any and all Barrington’s. We do not have many details and the characters’ background to have a complete idea of what the Clifton Chronicles are about. The story starts exactly where the last left us and continues the story of all the characters we have come to love in the Clifton Chronicles.

In a turn of events, Cedric Hardcastle takes a position on Barringtons’ board, and the outcome of the chairman vote becomes more uncertain. The next book, Mightier Than the Sword will be published on 24 February 2015 [4] and Archer has stated that Margaret Thatcher will make an appearance.

Emma reaches the morgue to see the sole victim’s body, finding that it belongs to Bruno, Sebastian’s friend. A couple of decent anecdotes do raise the hope of some of this in the middle of the story (particularly around the Sony delegation visit), but that's all that one gets. Be Careful What You Wish For' is a terrific thriller which some reviewers clearly have enjoyed as a 'stand-alone' novel. He is the only author ever to have been a number one bestseller in fiction (nineteen times), short stories (four times) and non-fiction (The Prison Diaries).It keeps trying to evoke reader emotions through the same story tricks used frequently in the previous books but they are no longer charming, if not outright annoying. Be Careful What You Wish For’ begins with Harry Clifton and his wife Emma rushing to hospital to for urgent news following a fatal car crash involving their son Sebastian and his best friend Bruno. Historical characters and events make their appearance on a regular basis including a cameo by Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal and British Labour leader and future Prime Minister Harold Wilson. And finally, her dreadful mistake when she’d allowed the cabinet secretary to persuade her that Seb should become involved with the government’s plans to bring Don Pedro Martinez to justice. Reaction to the Clifton Chronicles has not been unanimously positive—Archer has his detractors—but if you like multivolume family sagas, it would be hard to find a contemporary example as ambitious and entertaining as this one.

The Clifton family saga has turned out to be a masterful mix of fiction in a factually correct world, quirks of logical people and speedy action backed by a lot of thought. However, unlike in the previous versions of the Chronicles and surely far from the mastery displayed in Archer's various short story collections, there are no warm fables or parables here. He gained a Blue in Athletics at Oxford, was President of the University Athletics Club, and went on to run the 100 yards in 9.

The third, the one immediately preceding this one, was truly awful (though still, because of Archer's one talent, unputdownable).
