Cometh the Hour opens with the reading of a suicide note, which has devastating consequences for Harry and Emma Clifton, Giles Barrington and Lady Virginia.

Giles must decide if he should withdraw from politics and try to rescue Karin, the woman he loves, from behind the Iron Curtain. But is Karin truly in love with him, or is she a spy?

Lady Virginia is facing bankruptcy, and can see no way out of her financial problems, until she is introduced to the hapless Cyrus T. Grant III from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, who's in England to see his horse run at Royal Ascot.

Sebastian Clifton is now the Chief Executive of Farthings Bank and a workaholic, whose personal life is thrown into disarray when he falls for Priya, a beautiful Indian girl. But her parents have already chosen the man she is going to marry. Meanwhile, Sebastian's rivals Adrian Sloane and Desmond Mellor are still plotting to bring him and his chairman Hakim Bishara down, so they can take over Farthings.

Harry Clifton remains determined to get Anatoly Babakov released from a gulag in Siberia, following the international success of his acclaimed book, Uncle Joe . But then something unexpected happens that none of them could have anticipated.

Cometh the Hour is the penultimate book in the Clifton Chronicles and, like the five previous novels - all of which hit the New York Times bestseller list - showcases Jeffrey Archer's extraordinary storytelling with his trademark twists.

Book 6 of Clifton chronicles and I couldn't put this one down either! It has been on my TBR pile for well over a year and I own a hardcover as well as the e book (in Kobo and Kindle). I knew once I started it I would want to finish the series in one long reading session.

My favourite part was Lady Virginia's conning of Cyrus. That is one whily woman!
Of course the Barrington brother & sister being on opposite sides of the election campaigns has been interesting and Harry's staunch support of imprisoned Russian author made for a good story line.

Enjoying this series - has been awhile since I had read any of Archer's books and this series is as good as I remember his earlier books to be. Interesting characters with lots of story lines but they are easy to follow. Finding myself cheering on some of them and waiting for others to get their just dues. Now it is on to the last volume and the conclusion of this many faceted story.

I always look forward to J. Archer's works. This is a good read and a fast reads. Can hardly start the last of the series .

An incredible read that fits well into the series and leads well into the 7th and final novel soon to be released. It's everything you can expect from Archer with great plot twits and ending that leaves you wanting more. Absolutely looking to forward to the final novel in this series and I know Archer will continue to impress.

I can't imagine what my reading life will be like without the Clifton's (and company). If you need a binge read start with "Only time will tell" and just keep reading - you won't regret it!
(P.S. - if Sebastian dies in "This was a man" i will be devastated)
