Sons of Fortune

Jeffrey Archer is one of my favorite authors and I love to find one of his novels that I have not read in a bargain rack. Sons of Fortune was one such find.  As is my M.O. for novels I really hate to give too much away in the review.  I often feel that even the inside cover gives away too much.  I’ll tiptoe around a little by telling you that this is the story about two men who share a secret that even they do not know.   The mystery is, of course, whether they ever find out the secret.  The novel started out a little slow for me and primarily jumps between the two main characters.  By the halfway point, however, I was hooked and desperately trying to figure out what was going to happen.  I got a few, but not all.  The near ending was somewhat predictable, but Archer made me skim an earlier portion of the book to find out the real ending.  It was well played.
