In the end, however, it's a young woman in the North Tower when the first plane crashed into the building that has the courage and determination to take on both sides of the law and avenge the old lady's death.
Anna Petrescu is missing and presumed dead after 9/11, and she uses her new status to escape from America - only to be pursued across the world from Toronto to London, Hong Kong, Tokyo, and Bucharest. But it is only when she returns to New York that the mystery unfolds.

If I were reading a book, this is one that I would not want to put down until I read the last page. The story is brilliantly executed and shall be listening to it again.
What can you say about a book like this?.... It's gripping, sensational and a thoroughly excellent read. I have listened to this over and over and still enjoy it. Anton Lesser is magnificent as the narrator - More please!....
You can normally rely on Archer to supply you with a riveting read - and this is no exception.
Although a slow start, you are soon sent rocketing through a series of twists and turns that will keep you listening to the end (many a night parked on the drive for an extra ten minutes, just to hear what happened next!)
Jeffrey Archer writes such an enjoyable story and has a knack of knowing what his readers want. This one is no exception. I have read most of his books and this is the first audiobook of his I have listened to. I do think Prisoner of Birth was better but that said, this is certainly worth listening to. This is well paced, well written and is a very entertaining listen.
So you know what you're getting, right ? A cracking read from start to finish with enough twists and turns to almost make you insane. Well, not quite - yes, this is an excellent story but for some reason it is difficult to get into at the start. It is worth persevering though as it does pick up and ultimately delivers the goods.
I gave it four stars rather than five as it was so hard to get into at the start that I stop/started with it several times whereas Jeffrey normally engages you right off the bat.
Having never read a Jeffrey Archer book before I thought I start with this one as it had good reviews. I tried to get an unabridged version as I prefer them but couldnt on audible and that could have contributed to why I didnt enjoy it.
I found the story hurried and not really filled out but more than that I found it boring! If I find a book gripping I cant put my ipod down but with this story I really had to force myself to continue with it.I kept thinking there's going to be twist coming soon or more excitment but alas nothing For me it could have been written by a novice writer and I,m afraid it has put me off reading any more of Mr Archers novels
I dont know you will not let me download it says unavailable but been charge
If this book is unavailable why did you take my credit? Please can i have my credit
back to buy another book?
