A Prisoner of Birth

[Author: Jeffrey Archer Publisher:Pan Books , Paperback:  624 pages ]

This is the second book of Jeffrey Archer  which I have read within a  year. I had read his False Impressions few months back.

Danny Cartwright has been sentenced to 22 years of imprisonment for the murder he did not commit. He has been framed by a bunch of four close friends who are the real culprits. They  go scot free. The novel is all about how Danny escapes from the prison and takes revenge on them (ala author's first novel Not a Penny More, Not a Penny Less)

Though it seems like a Bollywood movie plot  the story is actually inspired by Alexander Dumas'  The Count of Monte Cristo,

Jefffrey Archer is in his elements in this book . Only he can keep the readers engaged on a very hackneyed plot right from the page one till the last page.

A very entertaining light read !
