Publisher's Summary

Danny Cartwright and Spencer Craig never should have met. One evening, Danny, an East End cockney who works as a garage mechanic, takes his girlfriend up to the West End to celebrate their engagement. He crosses the path of Spencer Craig, a West End barrister tipped to be the youngest Queen's Counsel of his generation. A few hours later, Danny is arrested for murder and later is sentenced to 22 years in prison, thanks to irrefutable testimony from Spencer, the prosecution's main witness.
Danny spends the next few years in a high-security prison while Spencer Craig's career as a lawyer goes from strength to strength. But all the while Danny plans to escape and wreak his revenge.
Thus begins Jeffrey Archer's poignant and unputdownable novel of deception, hatred and revenge, in which only one of them can finally triumph, while the other will spend the rest of his days in jail. But which one? This suspenseful novel takes the listener through so many twists and turns that no one will guess the ending, even the most ardent of Archer's many, many fans.

boring

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Good Grief....this is such a boring tedious predictable book. Won't be reading any more of Mr. Archer's books

Would you ever listen to anything by Jeffrey Archer again?

Can't believe this book was so highly rated!!!


It was highly predictable, too good to be true nonsense. I'm sorry but it's typical of Archer's recent works.
