This one was a bit of a let down for me given my lust for Archer's work. The story involves the stealing of the declaration of Independence from the National Archives in Washington D.C. The intended recipient of the stolen works is Saddam Hussein who intends to publicly burn it on the 4th of July 199? in front of a world-wide TV audience.
OK so, it's a cool plot and, given the subject matter, very timely. For me, the problem with this one is the apparent ease with which the actors move around a) Washington D.C. and b) the Presidential palace in Baghdad. Gaining access to two of the most guarded places in the world would require a lot more than a little cunning?
Yes, it's a work of fiction but, there has to be an earthly basis. Nevertheless, the book is intriguing and moves us along at a good pace. As opposed to Archer's other work, I found myself rushing through this one just to get it finished. For me, this one ranks below First among equals, Kane and Abel and way below As the Crow Flies".
This wont turn me off Archer as he has a portfolio that can absorb the occasional hiccup.
