    Description

    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 10 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 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.

    Finished off the series well

    This book was good but I must say the series as a whole was great. A very moving ending that tied the series together from beginning to end.

    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!

    Sorry it had to end!

    Great read. A little rushed but
    I will always remember Harry and Emma. There is enough material for a spinoff...

    Magical

    What a fabulous ending To this great series. I've enjoyed it immensely. I do wonder though why it was that so many people were willing to be friends with the Lady Feneck when she was such a bitch to everyone.... In particular Boffy.

    Happy Ending Buddenbrooks

    21st century can still go family story. Archers optimism beautifully meets Manns fatal narrative. Quite enjoyable;)

    The best one yet!

    I thoroughly enjoyed the ending of these chronicles. I felt the author did a fantastic job of wrapping it all up. The audible version was very well done and I would recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys a good romance, with historical fiction woven in to the tale as well.

    die Luft geht langsam aus, dennoch interessant

    Die Luft aus den Cliftons entweicht langsam, man kennt die Charaktere, kennt deren Geschichte & Geschichten, es bleibt interessant aber jetzt hat sich JA mal eine Pause verdient...
    Story fügt sich nahtlos an die vorhergegangenen Bücher und ist gut vorgelesen
