A Matter Of Honor, is an international thriller, which will have readers traversing not only international borders, but different eras of history as well. The plot of A Matter Of Honor, begins when a British Colonel leaves a letter for his son Adam, outlining instructions to acquire an item, located in a safety deposit box in Switzerland.
As soon as Adam, learns about the contents of the letter, an unfortunate chain of events follows. First, his lover is brutally murdered. Then he is caught running from city to city, trying to escape the KGB, the CIA, as well as his own countrymen. They are all trying to kill him, before he discovers the truth behind the item, mentioned in the letter.
When Adam acquires this “item”, he realizes that it is a Russian icon, made during the time of Czars, but had somehow come into the possession of Hermann Goring, during World War 2. Goering had gifted this item to Adam’s father for his kind treatment, and because he might also be unfairly blamed for his pre-execution suicide. But even Goering did not realize what was actually hidden in the icon. There was a copy of the Russian-Alaska purchase treaty from 1867, which actually did not occur! And now both the Russians and Americans were after this treaty, because its deadline was only a few day away! Adam is left, not only to protect this lease, but his honor as well.
