The book poses more questions than the ones answered.
22 April, 2013
For the first time in Clifton chronicles, the focus appears to be off Harry Clifton: Giles Barrington and Sebastian Clifton (Harry and Emma's son) are the main characters here. The story unwinds with Giles Barrington attempting to realize his ambition in the political arena; in the process he makes new enemies from both his professional and personal lives. Alex Fisher also makes a re-entry to haunt Giles. Meanwhile, Sebastian gets himself trapped as he is too naive to realize that he is being exploited by a person he trusts. Towards the end, when Mr. Martinez (villain, father of Sebastian's friend Bruno) realizes that he has been fooled by the Clifton family, he seeks Sebastian's death in revenge - the pace of the book peaks towards the end.
This time again, more questions are posed than the ones answered. On completing the book, the "Are Giles and Harry siblings" questions appears to have been forgotten completely in favor of other questions such as : "Is Sebastian dead ? What is Martinez's next move? Will Fisher's plan succeed? Does Sebastian join Cambridge?" among others.
