Dan Brown meets Indiana Jones, now that’s an awfully big call to make if ever I heard one. I have enjoyed a couple of the Dan Brown novels, and movies, and I loved the early Indy movies – though how much of that was Harrison Ford I couldn’t be sure. Either way this definitely intrigues me enough to want to check out The Honourable Thief. I’m picturing action, artifacts, and evil bad guys out to make the big bucks – or take over the world.
The Honourable Thief is an action packed tale of heroes and thieves, passion and honour set against a backdrop of history.
Istanbul, Turkey 1955. Even that is enough to have me picturing Indy with his hat and whip.
Discredited archaeologist Benedict Hitchens was once world-renowned, now he is a shell of his former self who still knows how to turn on the charm.
In his younger years, full of optimism and out for adventure, Hutchins was determined to prove a theory he held about Achilles. He was led to Crete where things seem to have fallen apart for him.
Hutchins is now faced with a chance to restore his reputation, solve the mystery of the disappearing enigmatic stranger and prove his theory but it’s a chance fraught with danger and possibly dire consequences.
10 of our members are reading The Honourable Thief and I look forward to hearing what they think. I also look forward to the day I have time to pick this one up and immerse myself in the history.
