Jeffrey Archer was educated at Oxford University. He has served five years in Britain's House of Commons and fourteen years in the House of Lords. All of his novels and short story collections--including And Thereby Hangs a Tale, Kane and Abel, Paths of Glory and False Impression--have been international bestselling books. Archer is married with two sons and lives in London and Cambridge.
The FBI has six days to stop a plot to assassinate the President in this title originally published in 1977 as a stand-alone thriller and refashioned in 1987 to complete No. 1 New York Times best-selling author Archer's "Kane and Abel" trilogy. The narration is by Audie Award winner Lorelei King (Tallgrass), who also read the last entry in this series, The Prodigal Daughter (Jeff Harding read the first; abridged recordings of all three are available from Macmillan Audio). King performs expressively, adding just the right amount of excitement to the story. The abridgment is skillfully executed; it is impossible to tell where material has been omitted. Highly recommended.-Ilka Gordon, Siegel Coll. of Judaic Studies Lib., Cleveland Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
"Outrageous top-notch terror." --Vogue "Holds the reader in a vicelike grip." --Penthouse "The countdown is the thing; the pace, the pursuit, the what-next..." --Boston Globe "The only difference between this book and The Day of the Jackal is that Archer is a better writer." --Chicago Tribune
