It is only days before Britain declares war on Germany. Harry Clifton, hoping to escape the consequences of a family scandal, and realizing he can never marry Emma Barrington, has joined the Merchant Navy. When a German U-boat sinks his ship, Harry and a handful of sailors are rescued by the SS Kansas Star, among them an American named Tom Bradshaw. That night, when Bradshaw dies, Harry seizes a chance to bury his past--by assuming the man's identity.

                Comments about The Sins of the Father:

                I am a very slow reader analysing every chapter. Archer is a smooth writer no pretentious words or sentences good for YA readers, and busy people a good series for us all. But, then I have not come across a boring book from Jeffery Archer.
