A Total Disappointment

This is definitely no "Kane and Abel". In fact I will go as far as to say that this has been my biggest disappointment in two years at audible.com. After almost 14 hours of listening I still couldn't keep even the two main characters straight in my mind.....mostly because I couldn't have cared less about them. Fell asleep during the last twenty minutes (and innumerable other times) and almost didn't bother going back to see how it ended.

Old fashioned clean entertainment

It has been more years than I can count since I have had the privilege of listening to such a great story. It was not the normal murder mystery or suspense novel nor was it a thriller or a boring drama.

The character development was superb and the presentation of the two brothers as men of honor and integrity was a pleasant surprise.

I was also pleasantly surprised by the presentation of the audio program and the choice of music. Both hinted at the old radio dramas without actually imitating them.

I would recommend this book to anyone of any age. There is no content here that I would not be proud to present to my own children.

A Great Story!

Although the story was not a complicated trail of characters and twisting storylines, it was just an outstanding well done story that I enjoyed from start to finish. There were enough surprises to keep you listening from chapter to chapter.
I think if you would like to listen to a very expertly written and narrated story you will love this.

A little predictable, and cliche

I like Jeffrey Archer usually, but this was a bit trite. I felt like I could see what was around every corner...even the "big shockers". And, I have listened to Archer on audible twice now, and I could do without the dramatic, yet warbly and scratchy mood music between chapters.

Horrible

The characters are shallow, the plot is predictable and the story is sophomoric. It was a total waste of time and money. Steer clear...

Good writing but story lacks complexity

Archer remains a good writer, but this story lacks the twists and turns his readers have come to expect in past novels.
