On the Tenth Day of Christmas my True Love Gave to me...Ten Lords-a-leaping.

Lord Jeffrey Archer, has just announced plans for a tour of Australia in April 2009 to promote his latest book, "A Prisoner of Birth", which was released in the UK as a paperback on 17 October 2008.

"If Danny Cartwright had proposed to Beth Wilson the day before, or the day after, he would not have been arrested and charged with the murder of his best friend. And when the four prosecution witnesses are a barrister, a popular actor, an aristocrat and the youngest partner in an established firm's history, who is going to believe his side of the story?

Danny is sentenced to 22 years and sent to Belmarsh prison, the highest security jail in the land, from where no inmate has ever escaped. But Spencer Craig, Lawrence Davenport, Gerald Payne and Toby Mortimer all underestimate Danny's determination to seek revenge and Beth's relentless quest to win justice, which forces all four protagonists to fight for their lives."


So begins A Prisoner of Birth, Jeffrey Archer's most powerful novel since Kane and Abel, with a cast of characters who will remain with you long after you've turned the last page.
