"Archer packs a plot with thrills and chills enough for readers to keep turning the pages, saying, What's gonna happen next?...The conclusion's a turbo-charged cliffhanger that'll have fans screaming Arrrcherr!" --Kirkus Reviews on Mightier Than the Sword"[The Sins of the Father] will keep your blood pressure high and you'll risk back injury just from being kept on the edge of your seat...I guarantee that anyone who takes this book from the shelves will not be able to put it down." --The Spectator (UK)"Archer knows how to dole out tiny crumbs of suspense right up to the last page, which ends with...a really excellent cliffhanger." --The Washington Post
