The trouble with toes above nose

is I'm not really tired at the end of the day, so that amazing book I started reading at 7 pm is still great at midnight, and Ive said "Oh NO!" and He better not die" and "Are you kidding me?!?!" and "OMG, this book is good, why have I not read his stuff before" so often that round about midnight DH opens one eye, looks at me and says "BABE, you can't keep reading all night if you're going to keep up the commentary, and I swear, I WANTED to stop reading, but I could NOT put the book down. I HAD to know what happened, had to know if the good guys won the day or if this author was one of the vile type who leads readers on a merry chase and then DESTROYS them at the end by throwing the protagonist under the train, so when 4:30 am hit and I closed the book and felt like I'd been on the best roller coaster ride of my life and I hadn't fallen asleep EVEN with the painkillers---the book was that good--I still woke up at 7:46, logged onto e-Harlequin to blog about it on the 100,000 book challenge and thinking about the book I'm still not sleepy. It really was that good!
The author: Jeffrey Archer
The book: A Prisoner of Birth,

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?

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.
