The Sins of the Father

Jeffrey Archer, read by Alex Jennings and Emilia Fox. Macmillan Audio, unabridged, eight CDs, 10 hrs., $39.99 ISBN 978-1-4272-1494-2
This latest installment in Archer's Clifton Chronicles series follows the multiple trials, tribulations, and sometime triumphs of working class Englishman Harry Clifton, his lady love Emma Barrington, and their numerous respective family members as they struggle, fight, and love their way across three continents during World War II. The tale is told from the point of view of several characters, and Alex Jennings and Emilia Fox provide narration that ably captures those characters, and render myriad voices and international accents--everything from from New York City cabbies to German officers and the stiff-upper-lipped British aristocrats. Fox particularly shines in chapters recounting the adventures of the stalwart Emma, who sets out on a mission to learn the fate of her lover that takes her from the comfort of her English homeland to the wilds of New York City. Fox skillfully brings this plucky, never say die character to life in this fast, entertaining summer listen, perfect for long drives or relaxing days in the sun. A St. Martin's hardcover. (May)
