Mightier than the Sword is the fifth book in the Clifton Chronicles series by Jeffrey Archer. A high drama story right from the start, this installment, too, doesn't let you down. 

The last book left us with a tense situation on The Buckingham as it set sail to New York on its maiden voyage. A bomb is planted in Emma's and Harry's cabin and is all set to destroy everything they worked hard for. The tragedy is averted just in time, but not without consequences. Harry is elected the new President of English PEN and voices his disapproval of the arrest of Anatoly Babakov, a Russian author, who is wrongly imprisoned for writing the truth about Stalin. Meanwhile, Sebastian has locked horns with Adrian Sloane of the Farthings Bank who has sworn to take him down, at all costs. While Sebastian is battling away for his career position, he loses the one thing most important to him. Giles gets involved in some messy politics which threatens his chance at the office in the elections while Alex Fisher returns to even it out with the Cliftons and Barringtons, but not for long.

Like always, this time too, Archer has continued to fascinate us readers with his compelling story. I felt the title to be perfect as it rightfully justifies the story that takes shape. The readers easily get involved with the lives of the Cliftons and the Barringtons, such is the power of narration here. I have said it before, I'm going to say it again. To keep the readers involved throughout all the books in the series, is a laborious task indeed and the author has executed that beautifully. The book has a perfect balance of suspense, drama, emotions and manipulations. 

An absolute delight of a book, especially for fiction lovers. If you are new to this series then I highly recommend you start from the first book and enjoy the ride!
