Saddam seeks revenge after the first Gulf War. He plots to steal the original Declaration of Independence, bring it to Baghdad and burn it for the world to see on the Fourth of July. Jeffrey Archer’s Hon0r Among Thieves weaves the story which is filled with familiar historical characters.
Archer expands the plot in a wonderful read that turns the pages through a labyrinth like a maze in a cornfield. Published in 1993, this is one of Archer’s novels that I missed. It cried out to me from the library shelf. Archer’sKane and Able should also beckon you if you have not read this other great work of fiction. It is always worthwhile to double-check what you may have missed from authors you have enjoyed.
