Read full description of the books A Matter Of Honour:I was lent this when I was a schoolboy and the spectre of how bad it was haunts me yet. Set in the 1960s it has a deeply silly plot about needing to stop the Soviets from getting the title deeds to Alaska because otherwise there wouldn't be any kind of a story at all. Well maybe it wasn't the title deeds exactly, but it was something along those lines, Herman Goring and a Swiss bank deposit box were involved, what more needs to be said (view spoiler)[ the bank deposit box was the best character, dramatic, sombre, and poignant by turns (view spoiler)[ not really, sigh. (hide spoiler)] (hide spoiler)]?
It rattles along. I remember there was a moment when the hero knew he was being captured by the Russians because he saw the British Union flag on their false diplomatic car was upside down. I don't think I would have realised that (not that his knowledge saves him, it's just a hook of doom to drag the reader into the next chapter). So the one upside to this book was that I realised I lack the flag recognition skills to be able to cut it as an international man of mystery in the 1960s.
I don't think that there is a sequel in which the Soviets have to be stopped from laying their hands on the title deeds to the White House. Perhaps someone should write it. The Americans could strike back by finding unpaid bills for the construction of the Kremlin wall in the Vatican Archives. It could just be the worst book ever.
