Friends this is my review of the book The Eleventh Commandment by Jeffery Archer, which I read recently. We are slowly going through the process of sorting our book shelves and come across books that have sat there for a long time, which it would be good to read again.
This is one such book. Though it was written some time ago, the descriptive text of the surroundings make it all the more interesting, as it reminds me of things that used to be, which I had forgotten till reading about them again.
This is a book about a CIA hitman, who is caught up in the battle for power at the Whitehouse between the president and the head of the CIA. The head of a foreign power is assassinated by Conner Fitzergerald, the CIA's most experienced hitman. Sadly the CIA did not have authority to kill.
If the president can prove that the CIA made the killing then the Director can be sacked or even worse. If the CIA can kill off Conner before the president gets to him then there is no proof. To get rid of Conner the CIA send him off to Russia to kill the new Russian President.
The race is on and it goes from a Russian Mafia's luxury hideaway outside St Petersburg to the Oval office via a number of locations along the way. It is all good fun with some unexpected twists along the way.
