Jeffrey Archer

Today we will be sharing with you some of the best books written by Jeffrey Archer. Before we begin, let’s get acquainted with the author. Jeffrey Archer was born in London, England and was a member of Parliament. Archer’s first book “Not a Penny More, Not a Penny Less”, was picked up by Deborah Owen and published in the US and later on in Britain. “Kane and Abel Series” are one of his best selling books, and has reached number one on the New York Times bestsellers list.


Jeffrey Archer also has a seven-book series called “The Clifton Chronicles” which revolved around the life of Harry Clifton. This series is a great way to get into Jeffrey Archer’s works, however, let us see some standalone books written by Mr Archer which are worth a read.


1. First Among Equals

Anyone who finds themselves being interested in books written under the genre of “politics”, is surely something you will want to pick up. This book gives the readers an insight into the British Parliamentary system. The novel has 4 men of approximately the same age, but from different backgrounds pursuing their careers in politics. All four of them aim for the top job in their parties. Through this race, their passion for the job and power is shared between their family. However, the top stands for one and one man only. Of four only one man attains their ultimate goal of being called the Prime Minister.


2. The Fourth Estate

Publishing Media then and now has not changed much. Publishing Media is often known to be invasive. This novel revolves around Richard Armstrong and Keith Townsend, two rival publishing media tycoons.

The book revolves around the concept of “hunger/greed for power”. Both Richard and Keith had the hunger to have as many newspapers in the world under their respective names as they could. Coming from different backgrounds and following extremely different paths in their life, they counter their own challenges. There is an inevitable face-off between the two of them at the end. This is not only an uncertain battle of power and influence but of promptness, wit and not to forget: unfeelingness.

3. False Impression

This book is one of Archer’s fast-paced books and takes place over a span of a few weeks. This book shares a different concept than most of Archer’s novels.

Expert in the field of art auctions, Anna Petrescu is the main character of the book. Soon in the book, it is revealed that an old lady under whose ownership lay a priceless piece by Van Gogh, was murdered. Anna’s boss who is a banker and happens to have a questionable reputation had demanded her to acquire that painting for him. What follows is a complex chase to prove their innocence, whether true or not. It is only human after all, to act innocent when even when one is fully aware, they are not.
