A fateful meeting between Danny Cartwright, an East End cockney garage mechanic, and Spencer Craig, a young West End barrister on the fast track to success, ends in Danny being arrested, convicted of murder--thanks to Spencer, who becomes the prosecution's main witness--and sent to prison, where he spends his time plotting to escape and seek revenge. 250,000 first printing.

McMillan Palgrave

International bestseller and master storyteller Jeffrey Archer is at the very top of his game in a story of fate and fortune, redemption and revenge.

If Danny Cartwright had proposed to Beth Wilson the day before, or the day after, he would not have been arrested and charged with the murder of his best friend. But when the four prosecution witnesses are a barrister, a popular actor, an aristocrat, and the youngest partner in an established firm’s history, who is going to believe your side of the story?

Danny is sentenced to twenty-two years and sent to Belmarsh prison, the highest-security jail in the land, from where no inmate has ever escaped.

However, Spencer Craig, Lawrence Davenport, Gerald Payne, and Toby Mortimer all underestimate Danny’s determination to seek revenge, and Beth’s relentless quest to pursue justice, which ends up with all four fighting for their lives,

Thus begins Jeffrey Archer’s most powerful novel since Kane and Abel, with a cast of characters that will remain with you long after you’ve turned the last page.

And if that is not enough, prepare for an ending that will shock even the most ardent of Archer’s fans.

This is the only Archer book I have read, but probably not the last. I love revenge themed books such as, the one this was based off of The Count of Monte Cristo. This disappointed me towards the end, but overall I would recommend it.

Yet another enjoyable book from Mr. Archer. A very unlikely scenario proves to be very plausible given this author's talents.

Archers best book that I have read I am a big fan of his and this is by far my favorite. Written right after Archer got out of jail himself gives the book a very nice authentic jail experience unlike a lot of jail fiction. If you liked kane and abel or sons of fortune I reccomend this one.
