Every so often I like to pick up a book by Jeffrey Archer, Dick Francis, John Grisham, or Tom Clancy – the equivalent of Chick Lit for men. My latest read Sons of Fortune is a great read with lots of twists along the journey.
The background is twins separated at birth, Fletcher Davenport enjoys life as the son of a millionaire, while his brother Nat grows up under less advantaged circumstances, as the son of a schoolteacher and an insurance salesman. The brothers grow to adulthood not knowing of each others’ existence, and Nat distinguishes himself as a war hero in Vietnam before returning to great success as a financier. Fletcher goes from a prestigious law career to become a senator. Ironically, the two men fall in love with the same girl, and when murder enters the story it gets more exciting.
