Cometh the Hour is the 6th book in the Clifton Chronicles series by Jeffrey Archer. I won a copy of the audiobook version from a Goodreads giveaway. Having never read any of the series, at first I felt a bit lost as I didn't know the characters or anything about the plots of prior books. As the story continued, I got past that awkward confusion and just enjoyed the story.

The audiobook, narrated by Alex Jennings, has great production value. I suffer from hearing loss, but was able to understand and enjoy this audiobook with no problems. Jennings reads at a perfect pace and is easily understandable. The tense moments in the story are not over-done.....no cheesy melodrama here....just an enjoyable narration.

For me popping in at book 6, this series seems to be an upperclass British soap opera. A suicide note leaked to the press ruins a political career. A man wondering if his foreign lover truly cares for him or is she a spy? Wealthy upperclass woman facing bankruptcy meets a man who might be able to solve her financial woes....if she can trick him. It's like As the World Turns or Falcon Crest with Uppercrust Brits. But...the one difference is that story is very well-written. I guess it's cheesy melodrama done with superb style.

Definitely recommended for readers who enjoy political intrigue, nefarious plots, and spy mystique. Very well done! ( )

The Clifton Chronicles # 6

Mr. Archer’s spins a cracking yarn with his sixth volume and has plunged us even deeper into a very intense tale of spies, politics, love and most of all unlimited intrigue. “Cometh the Hour” continues the events of the fictitious Clifton and Barrington families now the characters have reached the 1970s. Although this story can be read on its own I would highly suggest not doing so as this latest follows the events of the previous book.

All stories have started with a bang and ended in a cliff-hanger, this latest is no exception...What tumultuous lives they lead and what intense reading it is navigating through the pages reading Emma facing a vicious legal battles while her husband Harry is still determined to get “Uncle Joe” published and his author, poet Anatoly Babakov released from the Soviet gulag. Her brother, Giles Barrington will do anything to get his lover out of East Germany but is Karen in love or a well disguised spy...what a hot topic...The story will not let us forget that it wouldn’t be so captivating and be such a page turner if it were not for the conniving Lady Virginia. You will enjoy reading what she is up to...Of course Emma’s son Sebastian is in love with a beautiful Indian girl with powerful parents who will go to any ends to keep them apart, another captivating saga we follow. Andrian Sloane and Desmond Mellor, Sebastian’s rivals, have insidious schemes waiting for him...What a bunch of back stabbers.....Not a moment of peace....What a bunch of fascinating characters.

The characters’ stories intertwined with historical events of the period such as the Cold war and Margaret Thatcher’s political ascent. While some chapters focus on British political and international espionage others will on corporate espionage and financial crime and some will give us more social commentary of the time. The portrayal of these different views is really what keeps the story fresh and engaging.

This is another story terribly hard to put down. I simply loved it ( )

EXCELLENT! And just when you thought the series was over... The next book comes out in November. I guess he knew I was going to miss the Cliftons and the Barringtons. ( )

Anatoly receives the Nobel prize for lit. Is Karin a spy? Marriage for Sebastian. Emma and Harry are wonderful. Only one book left in the saga! ( )
