Prisoner of Birth by Jeffrey Archer

Talk about twists in the tale! If Danny Cartwright had proposed to Beth Wilson the day before, or not decided to visit a new pub to celebrate or had left earlier, he would not have gone to prison for murdering his best friend, who happened to be Beth's brother. He is determined to get out and get his revenge on the four high class friends who were the witnesses against him. Archer is famous for plot twists and this one has more turns than a mountain road with a shocker at the very end. If you like a book that keeps you guessing and reveals character through surprise, this is the book for you.

  1. I have read many of Jeffrey Archer's books and have enjoyed them all. I never thought he would be able to write something as wonderful as "Cane and Able" but he has. "A Prisoner of Birth" is by far his best novel and one of the best books I have read in a very long time. It was a very hard book to put down. It keeps your attention until the very end and at the end you are not disappointed.

  2. This is a rather large novel, which in a way is unfortunate, because if you are like me, once you finish the first page or two, you will be hooked and you are going to be there for awhile. Now I fully admit to loving to read a good revenge book and this is one of the best in that genre I have read in quite some time. No spoilers here, I hope, but I found this to be a very satisfying read!
