The captivating final instalment of the Clifton Chronicles from master storyteller Jeffrey Archer

This Was a Man opens with a shot being fired, but who pulled the trigger, and who lives and who dies?
In Whitehall, Giles Barrington discovers the truth about his wife Karin from the Cabinet Secretary. Is she a spy or a pawn in a larger game?

Harry Clifton sets out to write his magnum opus, while his wife Emma completes her ten years as Chairman of the Bristol Royal Infirmary, and receives an unexpected call from Margaret Thatcher offering her a job.

Sebastian Clifton becomes chairman of Farthings Kaufman bank, but only after Hakim Bishara has to resign for personal reasons. Sebastian and Samantha's talented daughter, Jessica, is expelled from the Slade School of Fine Art, but her aunt Grace comes to her rescue.

Meanwhile, Lady Virginia is about to flee the country to avoid her creditors when the Duchess of Hertford dies, and she sees another opportunity to clear her debts and finally trump the Cliftons and Barringtons.

In a devastating twist, tragedy engulfs the Clifton family when one of them receives a shocking diagnosis that will throw all their lives into turmoil.

  • The Clifton Chronicles.

    Never before in my 70 years have I read 7 novels in 10 days. For all 7 episodes of this amazing journey I felt like a family member quietly observing all from a corner chair in their Sitting room.

    Perfect ....... perfect.
  • Wholly unnecessary

    By Udhfc
    Having looked forward to the final instalment of this series I was quite disappointed in this story. Nothing of any value has been presented and the new 'stories' are a continuation of old characters and in many cases, non-sequiturs. If you like to read Archer for his style you will do better to re-read his classics. This one, I'm afraid, was wholly unnecessary.
  • Absolutely brilliant

    This Was A Man was probably the best book I have ever read. The whole series of The Clifton Chronicles was brilliant, well done Jeffrey Archer, you are a legend. Des Parr Perth Western Australia

    How sad to have finally completed my journey through the lives of the characters in the Clifton Chronicles. Thank you for the many hours of can't-stop-page-turning reading pleasure!

    I could not stop reading this book. I needed to know the ending and what an ending it is. Sad this is the last in the series. Loved all five, but I just love reading any of your books.
