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.
