Editorial Reviews

Review

"A deadly romantic triangle, a clandestine mission with global stakes, an exotic location, a plot as gripping and ingenious as Eye of the Needle . . . engineered to perfection with breathless acceleration . . . I couldn’t put it down." —Los Angeles Times

"Sheer suspense." —The Washington Post

"Vintage Follett. . . . This is his most ambitious novel and it succeeds admirably . . . tense, vivid, exciting . . . balances physical action with internal drama . . . satisfies on deep levels." —USA Today

"May be Ken Follett’s finest yet. . . . The suspense mounts as swiftly as Afghan villagers running to escape Russian guns—and the pages will turn just as fast." —Cosmopolitan

"An exciting and complex tale." —Philadelphia Inquirer

"Masterful . . . plot and counterplot, treachery, cunning and killing . . . keep you on edge every moment." —Associated Press

"Combines modern warfare, international espionage, and a love story while also, in typical Follett fashion, playing out the fate of his characters amid thrilling escapes and shattering revelations." —Richmond Times-Dispatch

"A gripping thriller and love story. . . . Follett builds the tension until it is as taut as a cable across the Khyber Pass. . . . There is an incredible sex scene and desperate trek across ice-covered mountains . . . an exotic setting, a strong, courageous heroine, a strong, courageous hero, good guys, bad guys and a supporting cast of thousands. . . . A roaring good read." —Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"Solid suspense fiction . . . romance, adventure, exotic settings with a healthy dash of intrigue. . . . When it comes to reliable entertainment, few authors deliver as consistently as Follett." —Pittsburgh Press

"Follett’s great strength is his female characters—they are smart, strong, independent, and when they love a man, by golly, he knows the game is up." —People

"Harrowing escapes . . . larger-than-life characters performing larger-than-life deeds. . . . It shouldn’t work but it does." —Booklist

"Beautiful in conception and execution . . . full of adventure and love blended as only a master such as Follett can do . . . a most provocative tale." —Ocala Star Banner

"Ken Follett scores again . . . an enthralling web of suspense . . . a well-crafted love story . . . unrelieved page-to-page tension . . . a wonderfully clean and simple writing style . . . holds constant interest." —The Anniston Star

"Exciting . . . romance, adventure, intrigue. . . . Ken Follett can hold his own with the best." —Indianapolis Star

"Lions roars . . . highly entertaining, quickly paced . . . skillfully crafted . . . and a nicely detailed quartet of characters that make the novel click." —Los Angeles Herald Examiner

"Deftly-built tension . . . the thrills of a chase . . . well-developed characters and atmosphere . . . keep the action going and have the credibility of a true tale." —The Orlando Sentinel

From the Back Cover

Ellis, the American. Jean-Pierre, the Frenchman. They were two men on opposite sides of the cold war, with a woman torn between them. Together, they formed a triangle of passion and deception, racing from terrorist bombs in Paris to the violence and intrigue of Afghanistan...to the moment of truth and deadly decision for all of them...
