61 Archer, Jeffrey HONOR AMONG THIEVES
HarperCollins Canada / Mass 1969 0061093246 / 9780061093241 Paperback Very Good 
"Honor Among Thieves," the plotboiler by the British novelist Jeffrey Arche r is a marriage of convenience between the more absurd James Bond adventure s and the old "Mission: Impossible" television series; what suspense there is must be generated not by its cast but by an array of stunts, gadgets and chases. -- New York Times

62 Archer, Jeffrey HONOR AMONG THIEVES
HarperTorch 1994 0061092045 / 9780061092046 Paperback Very Good 
Newly minted CIA and Mossad agents work to undo damage wrought by a Mafia/I raqi conspiracy in English author Archer's ( As the Crow Flies ; Kane and A bel ) witty, action-filled--if improbable--thriller. Some readers, we suppo se, might find quite plausible the idea that the mob has arranged for a rin ger to impersonate President Clinton during his first months in office. But here the actor who plays Clinton assumes the role only long enough to swip e the Declaration of Independence. The chase is on as mobsters spirit the m anuscript-turned-macguffin off to Iraq, where Saddam has plans to barbeque it for the Fourth of July, live on CNN. Meanwhile, Yale Law professor Scott Bradley goes undercover for the CIA, tracking lovely young Mossad operativ e Hannah Kopec, likewise on assignment in Paris. It's only a matter of time before the two agents are caught up in each other's arms and, of course, i n the race to recapture the Declaration. Beyond the thrills and surprises t hat Archer's masterful narrative provides, readers will remain aware of the extreme unlikelihood that a scam such as Saddam's could succeed, and that two such neophytes would be thrown in to stop it.

73 Arnott, Jake LONG FIRM
Hodder & Stoughton General D 2000 0340748788 / 9780340748787 Trade Paperbac Very Good 
"What's breaking into a bank compared with founding one?" Bertolt Brecht's provocative question opens Jake Arnott's first novel The Long Firm and sets the scene for its memorable exploration of the London underworld at the be ginning of the 1960s. Five very different characters tell their five very d ifferent stories about "Torture Gang Boss" Harry Starks. A man who "liked t o break people" but also a "frightened little child" is how his lover and k ept boy Terry recalls him; a "lower-class tearaway", according to the Tory lord who frequents his erotic parties; a depressive with a diabolical mind, one who likes to "stage manage the fear", in the eyes of his various crimi nal and starlet peers; a product of working-class subculture and a living c ritique of capitalism, concludes the radical young sociologist who teaches him in prison. Harry Starks is the beginning and end of The Long Firm, a co mpelling showman who embodies the brutal realism and impossible dreams at t he heart of Arnott's vision of London low life. The glamour and corruption of that life drive this story but Arnott manages to weave cliche into enigm a, myth into inquiry, in a way that revitalises the well-worn images of the mad and the bad. As Starks would put it, keeping Brecht's question before the readers' eyes, "It's all about the economy of power, Lenny".
