    Description

    The fifth novel in the epic Clifton Chronicles series.

    When the bomb goes off, how many passengers on the Buckingham lose their lives? You will only find out if you read the opening chapter of Mightier than the Sword.

    When Harry visits his publisher in New York, he's told that he's been elected the new president of English PEN and immediately launches a campaign for the release of a fellow author, Anatoly Babakov, who's imprisoned in a Russian gulag in Siberia. Babakov's crime? Writing a book called Uncle Joe, an insight into what it was like to work as the interpreter for Josef Stalin. So determined is Harry to see Babakov released and the book published, he puts his own life in danger.

    Emma Clifton, now the chairwoman of Barrington Shipping, is facing the repercussions of the IRA attack on the Buckingham. Some board members feel she should resign, but Sebastian Clifton, newly elected to the board, is determined that she'll remain chairwoman. Sir Giles Barrington is now a minister of the crown and looks set for even higher office until an official trip to Berlin does not end as a diplomatic success. Once again Giles' political career is thrown off balance by none other than his old adversary, Major Alex Fisher, who, for the second time, is selected to stand against him at the general election. But who wins this time? Sebastian asks his American girlfriend to marry him, and she happily accepts only to break off the engagement when she discovers what Seb has been up to behind her back.

    Mightier than the Sword ends with two courtroom trials. One is a libel case held at the High Court in London, a fierce battle between Emma Clifton and Lady Virginia Fenwick, and no one can believe how far Virginia will go to make sure she wins. The second, a show trial, takes place in Russia after Harry is arrested as a spy. Thus continues volume five of the Clifton Chronicles.

    This is Jeffrey Archer's most accomplished work to date, with all the trademark twists and turns that have made him one of the most popular authors in the world.

    Fabulous reads

    It is fabulous when you find a great story teller. I find new authors to read and that I like a task. I have nearly read all of Jeffrey Archers books and would recommend them to anybody.

    The saga continues....

    Enjoyable. Shocking to realize how conniving and deceitful some human beings can be and still live to tell the tale.... but then, others not...

    Series Hijacked by Commercialisation

    The plot and writing was good and generally a page-turner but, I felt that it was executed with the main game being a
    focus on the sale of the next book. The Reader always feels entitled to a resolution to the crime, or at the very least to be left with something to ponder, but here you are obliged to purchase the next book in the series to get out ANY sort of closure. While this might be good for sales, it leaves a bad taste in the reader's mouth and a feeling of being used as part of a cynical commercial process. I strongly object to this as a literary device .
    Has the author lost so much confidence is his readership that he has to try this one on us?
    Despite the linking up of some characters and/ or the story-line, we expect each book in any Series to be read as a "standalone", and we feel entitled to have some sort of definitive ending to the prevailing drama.
    Of course, I will be finishing the Series but will be unlikely to buy any more of Archer's audio books and, should I do so it will be from the local library.. Neither will I be recommending the Series to others, suggesting that they get them in print without having to use up their credits with Audible.
    Alex Jennings was a great narrator and made the characters come alive.

    Good continuation to the clifton

    The story continues to grab interest with new twists. This book is better than third & fourth but the first two were the best.

    Listening to Nr 5, already waiting for Nr 6

    Book 5 geht nahtlos weiter an dem Punkt, an dem Nr 4 aufgehört hatte. Also unbedingt der Reihe nach hören, guter Sprecher, ich warte jetzt auf Nr 6 um zu erfahren wer, was wann mit wem und warum und wie es weitergeht mit der Familie.....auch wenn die Geschichte im Vergleich zu den vorhergehenden etwas an Fahrt verliert....

    Sehr überzeichnet

    Die Guten sind sehr, sehr gut. Die Bösen sind sehr sehr böse.

    Leider sind die Guten auch irgendwie dumm.
    Emma macht bei einer Abstimmung den selben Fehler wie schon vor einigen Bänden. Eine so kluge Frau, der zweimal dasselbe passiert?
    Harry, der geniale Detektiv-Romane schreibt, benimmt sich bei seinem Auftrag wie ein völliger Depp und läuft in eine Falle des Geheimdienstes. Dabei wäre es trivial gewesen, das zu verhindern - vor allem, da ihm die Regierung ja Unterstützung zugesagt hätte und ein Konsulatsbeamter das völlig anonym erledigen hätte können.

    Die Story ist gut, der Stil genial aber solche Widersinnigkeiten ärgern mich zutiefst.
