    We do quite a bit of traveling in our car, so we have listened to almost all of Archer’s books. They are interesting at the very beginning of each book

    I love the Clifton Chronicles. Until #7- I was very disappointed in the way he hurridly tied things up. The subject matter needed at least one more book.

    The Clifton Chronicles is a dynamite series…I finish one and immediately go to the next. Will hate to finish the 7th book.
