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 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 installment 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.

I have just finished listening to Alex Jennings read all 7 book of the Clifton Chronicles - an excellent narrator.
I would recommend them to anyone in interested in family sagas which take place over the last 50 or so years.
I will miss hearing Alex Jennings and all his different voices - amazing. A pleasure to listen to.
The story has enough to keep you involved and each book ends with a cliff hanger!
You feel that you really know the Clifton family and all their associates - I will miss them!

It would be nice if a book was part of a series the number denoting the order of the book would be listed, it would be really be helpful if the author is prolific, just saying
