The Telegraph wrote that the genius of Jeffrey’s novels is that they are, ‘so appealing because they are so personal’ and The Mail on Sunday said he’s, 'probably the greatest storyteller of our age'. Take the utterly brilliant KANE AND ABEL. In Jeffrey’s 1979 novel we meet William Lowell Kane and Abel Rosnovski... two men born on the same day on opposite sides of the world but their paths are...

At the beginning of COMETH THE HOUR we see Sebastian Clifton in London at the start of the 1970s. This article shows just how much many iconic parts of the capital have changed. And, undoubtedly, London in 1970 was already vastly different from the city Sebastian had experienced when he impulsively turned up there in 1956.

Jeffrey admits that writing the final volume in a series is, “the biggest challenge of all for a writer.” As he says, “You know Harry, you know Emma, you know Giles, and you know there’s going to be tragedy somewhere.” THIS WAS A MAN is the seventh and final instalment in The Clifton Chronicles. It’s now out in hardback at [ Bit.ly Link ].
Kirkus Reviews says that in MIGHTIER THAN THE SWORD – the fifth novel in The Clifton Chronicles – Jeffrey, “packs a plot with thrills and chills enough for readers to keep turning the pages” as we are swept along with financial, political and personal fallings-out in the 1960s.

You never can tell where your greatest friends will come from. In ONLY TIME WILL TELL – the first in Jeffrey’s epic The Clifton Chronicles – Harry admits that he made only one real friend while he loitered around the dockyard. His name was Old Jack Tar. Leave a HEART if you adored the influence that Jack wielded on young Harry’s life.
On the period detail in THE CLIFTON CHRONICLES, Jeffrey says, “I think all writers, and by that I mean particularly novelists, draw on their own experience. I was born in 1940 so was able to write all the way through the period I remember as a child, university days, my first job, my life in politics, even my life as a writer because Harry is a writer.” Which decade in THE CLIFTON CHRONICLES...

In THE SINS OF THE FATHER, Giles learns that Broad Street was bombed with the loss of Tilly’s and Bates the butchers. Bristol was a German target because of its importance as a port and manufacturing centre and, on the night of 24-25 November 1940, the Luftwaffe dropped 5,000 incendiary bombs and 10,000 high explosive bombs on Bristol's old city. As the Lord Mayor later said, “The City of...

Some problems just won’t go away. Such as Major Alex Fisher who, in The Clifton Chronicles, has proved, time and time again, to be one hell of a thorn in the side of Harry (St Bede’s), Giles (Tobruk) and Emma (Barrington’s Shipping). In BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR, his opening gambit is, ‘Let me assure you that I will always do what I consider to be in Barrington’s best interests’... but has...

Narayan, The 39 Steps by John Buchan, The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas, and Beware of Pity by Stefan Zweig. But what would make it on to your all-time-favourites list?

In Jeffrey’s epic series, THE CLIFTON CHRONICLES, we meet the formidable Barrington family, from its patriarch Sir Walter Barrington – whose own father, like Harry Clifton’s, started out as a lowly docker – through to the lives of his children and grandchildren. In The Spectator, Jerry Hayes wrote that he has, “no doubt that Sir Hugo will go down as one of literature’s great villains”. Which...
