Featuring a bonus interview with the author
Adisgraced British colonel bequeaths a mysterious letter to his only son. The moment Adam Scott opens the yellowing envelope, he sets into motion a deadly chain of events.
Within days, he's running for his life, pursued by the KGB, the CIA, and his own countrymen. Powerful men plot his destruction and Adam is betrayed and abandoned even by those he holds most dear. When he finally realizes what he possesses, he's even more determined to protect it, for it's more than a matter of life and death—it's a matter of honor.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vineet | 1/28/2014

    " Much underrated. This book is hardly mentioned when listing Archer's great works. Set on the 60's, it still doesn't fail to entertain. The book also educates you about how the Swiss banking system works. Great read "

    " Jeffrey Archer is one of my fav authors and so had some expextations from this as well as with every other of his books. But i wouldnt rate it as Jeffrey Archer's book. It was just ok. The plot was quite good and could have expanded a bit more on that. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 10/10/2011

    " One of those books that you can only start when you have lots of free time because you won't be able to put it down. A real page turner and definitely Jeffrey Archer's best!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mj | 8/9/2011

    " A great political thriller by Jeffrey Archer - my favourite author of all time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adarsh | 7/29/2011

    " This is a nice book to read if you are looking to kill time. I would have liked the book more had the protagonist been a little more down to earth. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nicole | 3/11/2011

    " I actually read this book in 1987 (or so), but remembered so little of it that it's possible I read only a excerpt of it in another Archer book. Anyway, it's a pretty good story. But not as good as other spy novels out there. And it feels very 80s. Solid 2.5. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kokil | 3/8/2011

    " I'm sure I've read it before, but I realized it too far along in the book. It's not just a tight storyline that sucks you into the rhythm of a Archer, but also the vivid detail to his characters and their intriguing dialogues, the sly jibes and the witty repartees. This one's no different! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Babete | 3/6/2011

    " ( Uma Questão de Honra ) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christopherseelie | 2/3/2011

    " Competent and worth a weekend's read. Most interesting is the author's veiled critiques of the liberal policies that flourished in the 60s. As a disgraced conservative politician, this book's obsession with clearing the family name gives it a gossipy flavor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janice | 12/13/2010

    " it started a bit slow, but in mid-book, it was like a chasing train, picking up speed all the way till the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Parker | 11/4/2010

    " I re-read this again (maybe for the third time or more!), and I always like this book!! Very suspenseful and exciting... a spy-type chase plot.... Jeffrey Archer is great! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Neha | 8/16/2010
