The enemy is his own boss. And she has only one purpose: Meanwhile, the United States is faced with an equally formidable foe: Jeffrey Archer scoops his readers up in the first paragraph, and doesn't let them go until the last. The pace, the ingenuity, the twists, intertwined with a moving love story, show Britain's bestselling writer at the peak of his page-turning powers. Fiction Literature Publication Details Publisher: Pan Macmillan UK Imprint: Macmillan Publication Date: The author is married with two children.
Complications ensue The idea of "The Eleventh Commandment" isn't a bad one The problem is that too much of the book doesn't make sense. Is Connor Fitzgerald a cold-blooded assassin Archer goes out of his way to proclaim that he is both an assassin AND a hero Towards the end of the book, Archer has characters preaching the gospel of Connor Fitzgerald without any explanation as to why he should deserve such an honor. Then you have the idea of a female CIA Director who dislikes the President's politics so much that she is willing to stage political assassinations in order to get him off her back and destroy a disarmament bill the President had been pushing.
Worse, she stages a second political assassination in Russia only as a ruse to trap and eliminate one of her own employees Connor Fitzgerald Even when you download into Archer's premise This is where Archer really fumbles.
He sets up an exciting climax in a football stadium, and sets the reader up for a big finish Instead, Archer only indicates what happens next The Eleventh Commandment is a compelling and engaging read.
It's not particularly deep in terms of literary genius, but it is an exciting page turner. A top CIA assassin gets thrown on the scrap heap after successfully completing a job for his boss, however when his boss starts taking heat from the Whitehouse he's brought back for one last job where his boss intends to dispose of him for good, in Russia of all places. It's better than the blurb sounds that's for sure. I remember reading this book at about 2: Having read it the whole day, still was like if it could have been read for an entire 24hrs would fall short such interesting the book is.
I wonder how well this author can adapt and his mastery in writing fictions. It deserves more but I am a well-renowned miser when it comes to score something. It sticks to your hands like a magnet, it would, and such is its plot.
The only book which comes near to it is The Day of The Jackal. With killing kept to the bare minimum level and very little one on one encounter it is just as the things happen.
Equally normal was the other characters which is sure to leave a deep impression as we go through. I can bet any of the things I got that same would be the review above. Mar 03, Steve rated it really liked it Shelves: The Eleventh Commandment is a very well-written espionage thriller story which reminds me a lot of Robert Ludlum's Bourne series. Connor Fitzgerald is a CIA operative with years of dedicated service as an assassin for the United States government in foreign countries around the world.
When his superiors set him up to be captured and executed in an effort to get rid of him, they learn how loyal some of his friends are, and instead of going away, he becomes a threat and a liability to them.
I found The Eleventh Commandment is a very well-written espionage thriller story which reminds me a lot of Robert Ludlum's Bourne series.
I found this book to be a bit slow at times, but it's a relief to read a book in this genre that isn't completely over the top and unbelievable. It still has those aspects, but it's not as extreme as most books like this. Archer doesn't seem to go for the shock value that you see in a lot of these kinds of stories.
The Eleventh Commandment is much more down-to-earth and entertaining without being creepy, sexy, or disturbing. Five stars if this story had been more engrossing. Shorter chapters that left me a hanging a little bit more would probably have accomplished that. Still a great story.

I love reading political thrillers and Jeffrey Archer did a great job at keeping me "glued" to the book: I think the ending was a bit predictable, but still I would definitely recommend it to other readers.
Feb 06, Ravi: This was my first book to be read in and I just loved it.. I enjoyed each and every page.
Earlier I used to enjoy a lot of watching movies.. But reading a books is a lot good and the way the details are written is excellent This is the first book which I read Jeffrey Archer and yes..
I never had the habit of reading books earlier.. Feb 17, Marion rated it really liked it. I really enjoyed the book. I liked the characters , I liked the plot.. I enjoyed reading it and watching it unfold. I was rooting for the good guys and, Hoping the bad guys would be caught and punished, some were but some were not. Was it believable, probably not but it was within the realm of my imagination and it allows me to escape from my everyday life, if only for a moment.

I think these sort of CIA focused books are great but as it is supposed to reflect the real world the ending was disappointing but still brilliant,i think i will read more of Archer's books in the future. May 17, Jenn rated it really liked it Shelves: This book was an intriguing book that keeps the reader guessing as to what will happen next and who was the "villian" of the story.
Even at the end, the author still throws a twist at the end and not everything seems like it should be until the last page! I really enjoyed this book, although it makes me wonder if things like this truly happen with our government! Oct 24, Connie Wisniewski rated it it was amazing. This was a fabulous book. The plot was fantastic and the characters were terrific. It gives a lot of insight into the inter-workings of the CIA, an the administration. There were so many twists and turns, you couldn't put the book down.
I would recommend it to everyone who loves a true thriller. Feb 11, Mae rated it liked it Shelves: Again, a good time passer - won't change the world, but entertaining and seems to be what is necessary right now.

My very first Jeffrey Archer!
Absolutely loved it! Jul 14, animesh jain rated it really liked it. Any easy and simple read. Although I don't read fiction much,but this book involved me till the very end. There was a clear drift between U.
Helen wished to occupy the top office and was working deceptively. President was not Any easy and simple read. President was not taken into account while carrying out the Colombia assignment.
President and his secretary Andy Lloyd are suspicious of Helen and begin their private investigation with the help of Chris Jackson an old time friend of Connor and an retired or rather kicked out CIA operative. Helen was under impression of getting caught up, she planned a trap to do away with Connor.
Chris took the help of Russian mafia Romanov who was enemy of President Zerimski and wanted him to be killed at the hands of Connor. S,it was again Connor who was being used in the hands of Mafia and Russian President.
Book is filled with thrill and mystery at each step.
