The Honourable Thief is a novel that will intrigue you until the very end. It’s a tale following archaeologist, Benedict Hitchens, who is determined to prove that Achilles really existed. Convinced that he was a real person. Benedict’s determination to prove his theory leads him down a road that will bring him his greatest love and his greatest test.
Proving Achilles was real was Benedicts greatest passion until he meets Katrina. She becomes his whole world, until the dark world of war comes knocking. A terrible fate awaits them that goes on to shape the man Benedict becomes.
Played on the back drop of history, this novel will take you on an amazing journey through one man’s life, a love story, a world war and a world of secrets, intrigue and violence
If you are looking for a book you can’t put down, then I recommend reading this book. While it was a little slow to begin with, by the time I got to Chapter 3 I was captivated. It kept taking me places I did not expect.
