In Whitehall, Giles Barrington discovers the truth about his wife, Karin, from the Cabinet Secretary. Is she a spy or a pawn in a larger game?
Harry Clifton sets out to write his magnum opus while his wife, Emma, completes her 10 years as Chairman of the Bristol Royal Infirmary and receives an unexpected call from Margaret Thatcher offering her a job.

Meanwhile, Lady Virginia is about to flee the country to avoid her creditors when the Duchess of Hertford dies, and she sees another opportunity to clear her debts and finally trump the Cliftons and Barringtons.
In a devastating twist, tragedy engulfs the Clifton family when one of them receives a shocking diagnosis that will throw all their lives into turmoil.
This Was a Man is the captivating final instalment of the Clifton Chronicles, a series of seven novels that has topped the bestseller lists around the world and enhanced Jeffrey Archer's reputation as a master storyteller.

I actually cried at the end and that's the best farewell I could give to Sir Harry Clifton

A Fascinating series, well told.

I had previously been put off trying any of the Author's books because of his misdemeanors but I am glad that I was sensible enough to realise that his literary skills had nothing to do with his personal conduct.
This series proved totally engaging and I found myself scrambling to purchase additional credits in order to continue the story without interruption!
To put together a tale that spans a lifetime is a creditable feat.
To make it so engrossing deserves high praise indeed.
I found myself totally immersed in the story line and experienced a range of emotions which mirrored those of the characters.
If you haven't tried Mr Archer's books, then I can't think of a better introduction!
