From the Publisher
On the heels of the international bestseller Only Time Will
Tell, Jeffrey Archer picks up the sweeping story of the
Only days before Britain declares war on Germany, Harry Clifton,
hoping to escape the consequences of long-buried family secrets,
and forced to accept that his desire to marry Emma Barrington will
never be fulfilled, has joined the Merchant Navy. But his
ship is sunk in the Atlantic by a German U-boat, drowning almost
the entire crew. An American cruise liner, the SS Kansas
Star, rescues a handful of sailors, among them Harry and the third
officer, an American named Tom Bradshaw. When Bradshaw dies
in the night, Harry seizes on the chance to escape his tangled past
and assumes his identity.
But on landing in America, he quickly learns the mistake he has
made, when he discovers what is awaiting Bradshaw in New
York. Without any way of proving his true identity, Harry
Clifton is now chained to a past that could be far worse than the
one he had hoped to escape.
