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.
Bestselling author Jeffrey Archer’s Kane and Able is truly a fabulous novel that follows the lives of two boys born worlds apart on the same day in 1906. They grow into manhood to intersect each others lives in most incredible ways. Kane and Able from my perspective is Jeffrey Archer at his very best but of course that is a personal observation about an author who has written success upon success.
The scion of a noble New England banking family and a Polish immigrant born of unknown parentage are each determined to excel beyond the hopes and dreams of their probable and improbable backgrounds. Archer developes the characters and the plot and weaves a story that is impossible for the reader to predict but satisfying in every single chapter. If you need more detail check out the hundreds of on-line reviews. Hard to find a bad one!
You will have to dust off the paperback version of this 1979 Archer best seller if you go to the local bookstore but it comes dust-free on-line.
If you want a great Gordon’s Good Reads recommendation enjoy this book now! Everyone that I have passed it along to has been grateful!
