Spring, 1994, Washington, D.C. -- While the Clinton Administration grapples with its domestic policies, a sinister plot is being masterminded six thousand miles away in Baghdad. By using $100 million as bait and spinning a deadly web of corruption, forgery, and terror, Saddam Hussein seeks to embarrass the U.S. with the ultimate revenge: to steal a treasured historical document and then destroy it before the world's media -- on July 4, 1994.
As the countdown to Independence day begins, two agents stand in the way of his nearly flawless plan: Scott Bradley, a rising star in the CIA who is desperate to prove his patriotism, and Hannah Kopec, the stunning Mossad operative who has already lost so much that she fears nothing and trusts no one. Their unrelenting quest to prevent what would undoubtedly be the most humiliating day in U.S. history takes them across four continents and climaxes in a dramatic, triple-twist ending.
Ingeniously plotted and as up-to-the-minute as today's headlines, Honor Among Thieves resonates with the brilliant pace that is the trademark of master storyteller Jeffrey Archer.

In this farfetched but totally entertaining espionage caper, the Mafia, in cahoots with Iraqis, plans to steal the Declaration of Independence for Saddam Hussein to burn, live on CNN, on the Fourth of July. CIA Operative Scott Bradley and Israeli Agent Hannah Kopec must recapture the document before it's barbecued. In the hot pursuit, Scott and Hannah not only pursue the document, but each other. Narrator Bill Roberts keeps up with the timing and tension. While irresistibly romantic, Archer's thriller also offers tongue-in-cheek wit and fast-paced action.
