"Sins" is the second in what is to be at least a three-book saga (possibly more) entitled the Clifton Chronicles, centered around the character Harry Clifton. As with the first entry, "Only Time Will Tell", it was difficult to put down this engaging story, although at times we had forgotten key facts from book one - perhaps a brief reminder synopsis might have been nice.

Archer again spun the tale little by little from different character's points of view, and it seemed Harry's sweetheart Emma and best friend Giles got a little more ink this time as Harry spent much of his time in prison. The question of who for sure is actually Harry's father continues to loom and dominates the latter part of the book as it makes a huge difference who inherits the title and estate of the Barrington family.

I hope the third book of the Clifton Chronicles is along the lines of the first novel where you just can't bear to put the book down. The Sins of the Father is worth reading but don't expect it to be like the first novel as you will be a bit disappointed.
