The thrilling conclusion to the number one bestselling Clifton Chronicles.
From the Inside Flap
This Was a Man opens with a shot being fired, but who pulled the trigger, and who lives and who dies?
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 ten years as Chairman of the Bristol Royal Infirmary, and receives an unexpected call from Margaret Thatcher offering her a job.
Sebastian Clifton becomes chairman of Farthings Kaufman bank, but only after Hakim Bishara has to resign for personal reasons. Sebastian and his wife Samantha's talented daughter, Jessica, is expelled from the Slade School of Fine Art, but her aunt Grace comes to her rescue.
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.See all Product description

The last chapter was so moving, I cried. And I can’t stop crying. I sobbed until the last word was read. I’ve never been so carried away with my emotion with a book. But this series, time and time again, even though I knew that this is a fiction, the author wrote them with such dexterity and deep feelings, I somehow thought that they are real people. And real people get old and die, that’s when I knew I’ll missed them - dearly.
The power of storytelling, laying it in the hands of a master storyteller like Jeffrey Archer, becomes so real, it made me weep.
This series of 7 books - must read!
This last book moves at a mind blowing pace and for me, I found the end a very moving and eye wetting chapter. A memorable end to a good series.
All of the books capture your imagination as you follow the main characters' rise or fall.
However when I started to read the final book, I felt that there was no real plot. There seemed to be a battleground for Giles and Emma, but where was it leading to? And then it became clear! An excellent ending to a superb series of books.
I'm so sorry that the Clifton Chronicles have come to an end. I might have to pick up Kane and Abel as it was the first Archer book I read.
