8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Rob C. on December 22, 1999
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This work isn't exactly trash, it's a very 1970's morality story with an unlike, almost anti-hero behaving very much like a Swinging London jet-setter. It follows the 70's fashion/sexuaity formula with Mr. Follet's usual characters. Very similar to "The Executioner," By Don Pendleton, the book that defined the action/adventure genre, this book is more a reflection of the era than a bad work of fiction. While it deserve no awards, it isn't trash either.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is evidently one of the first books ever written by Follett. The plot is banal, the characters are built very superficially. It's worth reading only if you are a young writer in need of encouragement - it shows a youthful, unsuccessful effort by an author who grew later on to be a really good writer.
However, if you read it expecting the high quality of other books by Follett, you will be frustrated.

This was the first book I had read by Ken Follett, but since I have also read the Modigliani Scandal. He keeps the reader so interested with the action, fast turns and dramatics that it is hard to put the book down when you get tired. I enjoyed this book very much and I hope to get an opportunity to read more of this talented authors' work in the future.
