3.0 out of 5 stars
An excellent novel which had me in suspense the whole time., 21 Feb. 2001
A Matter of Honour is the first book I have read by Jeffrey Archer and it certainly won't be the last. Finally, I have found a type of fiction which interests me, and compels me to keep reading. At times, I could hardly bear to put the book down. It's the type of story that wouldn't look out of place in a James Bond film, it's a shame Ian Fleming hadn't written it himself. Rather than retell the whole novel, I'll just recommend it to anyone who appreciates a really good mystery/crime fiction. Absolutely brilliant, the novel centres around the activities of Adam Scott, who follows up a historical event after his father's death. His mission takes him all over Europe and he is chased by Russian spies. And all for the sake of a Tsar's icon, though there's a lot more to the novel. Trust me, just read it and you won't be disappointed.
