Publisher's Summary

Adam Scott listens to the reading of his father's will, aware that the contents can only be meagre. The Colonel, after all, had nothing to leave, except a letter he had never opened himself, a letter that can only bring further disgrace to the family name. Against his mother's advice, Adam opens the letter, and immediately realizes his life can never be the same again. The contents leave him with no choice but to follow a course his father would have described as a matter of honour.


What the Critics Say

"An epic chase thriller tidily concluded with a series of neat twists. Highly recommended." ( Library Journal)

Enjoyable but dated

I found this book reasonably entertaining, but thought it suffered from too many clich?s of its era. It's set in the 1960s with a Cold War background of spies and hostility between the West and the Soviet Union. It's an imaginative story that, like many thrillers, depends on the hero doing stupid things and finding women easily bedable on short acquaintance. I imagine it was written quite a while ago and I think that Jeffrey Archer has raised his game in thriller writing to judge by more recent books, such as Prisoner of Birth: an excellent and very exciting story.
