Ever since I read Only Time Will Tell, the first in the Clifton Chronicles, I was waiting eagerly for this book and it did not disappoint. Archer takes the story of the Barringtons and the Cliftons along new and previously uncharted territory in a gripping novel. I turned the pages fast and furiously only to find that the ending is again a cliffhanger! Now I’m waiting for the next one… (submitted by library customer MA)

Very easy read that keeps me turning the pages.

This second in the series is marginally better, if only because we know the characters. Also the book's cut up in larger chunks that aren't as repetitive of action as in the first. Still, the characters tend to be very "cardboard," either very saintly or total villains. The ending is a complete cliffhanger that will require reading book 3, clearly Archer's intent. A guilty pleasure; I read the large print version in 24 hrs.

Implausible and poorly written. Can't believe I found it on a bestseller list!

I picked up this book not knowing it was part of a serie so I will read the first one. I loved the Sins of the Father kept me reading every spare minute I had.

Looking forward to the new one.

Yep, after all these years and a prison sentence, our Kane and Abel author has not lost his touch. Grabs you and zips right along
