Only Time Will Tell is the first book in the Jeffrey Archer series, The Clifton Chronicles. The story begins in the 1920s with young Harry Clifton. The book is divided into sections, each told from a different point of view. Characters are clearly delineated as rich and poor, good and bad, heroes and villains. It is an expected but easy to read story. I look forward to reading more.

As this is the first book of The Clifton Chronicles, it is mainly background and introduction to the characters. The story follows the life of Harry Clifton, from humble beginning to how he almost entered Oxford University, but ended up being accused of murder.
When reading the novel, there was always this feeling of 'deja vu' - I have seen this plot before in another of his books. Having said that, I think I will read on when the second book comes out. I hate not knowing the full story and Archer is such a good story teller, somehow I was already hooked.
If you must read a story with a proper ending, then you should avoid this one or wait until the whole series is out....Continua
