The publication of this, the seventh and final instalment in his epic number-one bestselling Clifton Chronicles, will bring to a thrilling conclusion the spellbinding series which has captivated readers since 2011.

Archer will be in conversation about the new release, the series, and his life and career with journalist Ruth Wishart at the Usher Hall at 7.00pm on Wednesday 9 November.

Nick Barley, Director of the Edinburgh International Book Festival, said “Jeffrey Archer spoke at the very first Edinburgh International Book Festival, back in 1983 and it seemed appropriate to invite him back to Edinburgh to close his latest epic series as we approach the 70th anniversary of Edinburgh as a world leading Festival city.

With the support of City of Edinburgh Libraries, the Book Festival is inviting members of local reading and community groups who have never previously attended an Edinburgh International Book Festival event to come and hear Jeffrey speak, encouraging more people to develop a love of books and reading by bringing them together with an international bestseller for the first time.

This event is part of the Edinburgh International Book Festival’s Booked! programme, supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

Tickets priced £12 and £10 for concessions are on sale from the Usher Hall.
