Description

This program is read by acclaimed English actor Richard Armitage. Heads You Win is international #1 bestseller Jeffrey Archer's most ambitious and creative work since Kane and Abel, with a final twist that will shock even his most ardent of fans. Leningrad, Russia, 1968: From an early age it is clear that Alexander Karpenko is destined to lead his countrymen. But when his father is assassinated by the KGB for defying the state, Alexander and his mother will have to escape Russia if they hope to survive. At the docks, they have an irreversible choice: board a container ship bound for America or one bound for Great Britain. Alexander leaves the choice to a toss of a coin… In a single moment, a double twist decides Alexander's future. During an epic tale, spanning two continents and thirty years, we follow Alexander through triumph and defeat as he sets out on parallel lives as Alex in New York and Sasha in London. As this unique story unfolds, both come to realize that to find their destiny they must face the past they left behind as Alexander in Russia.

Professional reviews

"It's Russia in the 1960s. Elena and her teenage son have a choice to make about which ship to take to escape KGB threats. They flip a coin (hence the title) to decide between America or England. Listeners are then treated to alternating chapters portraying their lives in each country. Narrator Richard Armitage successfully voices a Russian accent for the lead characters while doing British, American, and assorted other accents for the many secondary characters. Listeners may have to work a bit to get into the rhythm of the two parallel plots and may find the final chapters a bit confusing when the two stories are brought together. Nevertheless, Armitage provides an engaging listening experience. E.Q. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
