Here together for the first time in an eBook bundle are the first four Clifton Chronicles novels: Only Time Will Tell The first book in the Clifton Chronicles begins in 1920 with the words, "I was told that my father was killed in the war," launching the story of Harry Clifton, the hero of Archer's epic tale, and taking him as far as the beginning of WWII. The Sins of the Father On the run from a terrible family secret, Harry Clifton joins the Merchant Navy on the eve of WWII and must escape both the consequences of assuming another soldier's identity and the horrors of war. Best Kept Secret Now that Harry and the love of his life are free to marry, the powerful Clifton Chronicles moves into the 1950s and the boyhood of Harry's son Sebastian.

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 mistake he has made, 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 could be far worse than the one he had hoped to escape.
