Be Careful What You Wish For by Jeffrey Archer

Be Careful What You Wish For by Jeffrey Archer
(The Clifton Chronicles, book 4)
635 pages / 11 hours, 39 minutes

     The book opens with Harry Clifton and his wife Emma rushing to the hospital because their son, Sebastian, was killed in an auto "accident."  An eye witness points the police investigation in the right direction to discover the truth.
     Don Pedro Martinez continues his efforts to exact revenge on the Barrington family since they helped circumvent his plan to smuggle millions of counterfeit dollars into England.  His cruelty is focused on the family's business, but also extends to Harry and Emma's adopted daughter, Jessica, who has fallen in love with the son of a fish paste king.
     There are some great elements here, and I enjoyed the complicated game of chess in which the main characters become involved.  It's another good book in the Clifton Chronicles series, but I don't think the story line flowed as well as in the previous volumes.  I'm taking a break before reading the next (#5) in the saga.
