A book review of ‘A Matter of Honour’ by Jeffrey Archer
The novel centres around Adam Scott, a captain in the British Army, who attends the reading of his recently deceased father’s will. His dad, a Colonel, failed to accumulate any real wealth in his lifetime and leaves his family with not much of an inheritance.
Apart from a few hundred dollars, the colonel leaves a letter which he had never opened. Along with it, Adam receives a cryptic message from his dad warning him that opening the letter might bring him trouble, and disgrace his family’s already tarnished name. However, it may also provide some clues to attaining some much-needed money.
Curiosity and desperation gets the better of him, and opening the letter leads him on an international journey in an attempt to uncover old Word War 2 secrets, clear his father’s name and, possibly, attain some wealth.
His mission is hampered by a murderous adversary who is determined to uncover the secret of the letter as well.
A very enthralling novel which poses some interesting theories about the dealings between the governments of Russia, Germany and the USA within the last 150 years.
