The Sins of the Father
by Jeffrey Archer
International bestselling author Jeffrey Archer returns with his most ambitious work of epic storytelling'a multi-generational saga of fate, fortune, and redemption that began with ONLY TIME WILL TELL.

On the heels of the international bestseller ONLY TIME WILL TELL, Jeffrey Archer picks up the sweeping story of the Clifton Chronicles.

Only days before Britain declares war on Germany, Harry Clifton, hoping to escape the consequences of long-buried family secrets recently revealed, and forced to admit that his wish to marry Emma Barrington will never be fulfilled, has joined the Merchant Navy. But his ship is sunk in the Atlantic by a German U-boat, drowning almost the entire crew. An American cruise liner, the SS Kansas Star, rescues a handful of sailors, among them Harry and the third officer, an American named Tom Bradshaw. When Bradshaw dies in the night, Harry seizes on the chance to escape his tangled past and assumes his identity.

But on landing in America, he quickly learns the risks of such a scheme, when he discovers what is awaiting Bradshaw in New York. Without any way of proving his true identity, Harry Clifton is now chained to a past that might be far worse than the one he had hoped to escape.

Tiger Hill
by Sarita Mandanna
Muthavva gazed at her daughter's face in the lamplight and felt a strange chill down her spine. She tightened the amulet on Devi's arm, trying to stay her sense of disquiet. Devi stared through the window into the clear, starlit night. Beneath the blanket, her fists were curled into little balls, her nails pressing into the skin. She thought again of the tiger wedding, and of the bridegroom. Only him, she repeated to herself.I will marry only Machu.

Coorg,1878. Devi is born on the day of the herons, and Muthavva knows that her daughter will be special. Beautiful and spirited, the little girl quickly becomes the object of adoration of her entire family. She befriends Devanna, a young boy whose mother has died in tragic circumstances, and they soon become inseparable. But the course of their lives changes forever when Devi meets Machu the tiger-killer, a hunter of great repute and a man of immense honour and pride.

Blind to Devanna's devotion, Devi vows that she will marry Machu some day. This creates a rift between her and Devanna who leaves the village to study medicine in the hope that when he comes back Devi will return his love. But a catastrophic twist of fate changes the destinies of all three, with consequences that affect generations to come.

An epic and extraordinary debut from an astonishing new talent.Daily Express
