Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Super-agent/assassin Paul Bannerman returns from semi-retirement in suburbia to confront hoodlums exploiting the chaos in post-Soviet Russia. A gang of rogue KGB agents and cartoonishly brutal Russian mobsters aims to take advantage of the vacuum of authority through an arms-for-drugs-and-hard-currency scheme. Tired of seeing his troubled nation further weakened, KGB agent Leonid Belkin decides to import Bannerman and his uncanny talent for making trouble "disappear." Belkin does this by inviting a former associate, Elena Brugg, to Moscow for a honeymoon with her new husband Raymond Lesko, who is Bannerman's father-in-law. Trouble ensues when Lesko is mistakenly pinned to the murder of one of the mobsters on the KGB payroll. Bannerman, the bad guys, and other KGB and CIA types flown in from around the globe eventually converge on Moscow, just in time for a gory free-for-all. Although a number of scenes convincingly evoke Russia's current malaise, Maxim's ( Bannerman's Law ) labor ultimately yields little more than a turgid, artlessly rendered techno-thriller in which many characters appear to do so much with so little reason.

From Library Journal

Maxim follows up Bannerman's Law (Bantam, 1991) and The Bannerman Effect (Bantam, 1990) with another adventure starring Paul Bannerman and his cutthroat cohorts. In this latest title, the action shifts from Switzerland to Russia as agents, ex-agents, criminals, and security services plot and counterplot in a complex tale of stolen chemical weapons, missing Party funds, and drugs. Groups and individuals collide with one another in violent encounters that also involve the CIA and KGB as everyone tries to control the situation. Readers unfamiliar with Maxim's previous titles may find themselves occasionally baffled by references to various characters' pasts, but the book can stand alone. Recommended for suspense collections and where the author's earlier books have proven popular.-- Stanley Planton, Ohio Univ.

I would definitely like to say that the Bannerman books are above all my favorite. They are very, very difficult to put down once you start. And the intensity of the stories doesn't stop there. At the conclusion of the books, especially for me in Bannerman's Ghosts, all the lives of the characters come together, and the problems in the characters hearts and minds begin to resolve, and thats when the deep emotions set in. Those deep emotions come from John Maxim's excellent way of telling a story, as well as his thorough understanding of surviving, and the humanity in all of us looking for the perfect ending, once we have survived.

I love all the Bannerman books and Bannerman's Promise is no different. My only complaint with this one is that my favorate character is Billy, and he doesn't really have a roll in this one. But once again Maxim has hit a homer, the way his characters maintain levety at the strangest possible times had me laughing out lound. The pace was great. Mr. Maxim I have a request....MORE BANNERMAN!!

This book is a typical Maxim book. That means it's well written. it has a good plot, good characterization. What you can expect from any of his books. Carla Benedict has always been one of my favorite characters in Maxim's books. In this book she gets the attention she deserves. One word of warning to readers. This book was originally published in 1993 under the title of A MATTER OF HONOR.

John Maxim writes a great thriller, and I love all the characters in the Bannerman series, but his Obstetrics and Gynecology is
horrible. None of it makes any sense. Just ignore the diagnoses, and the story is great.
