About The Author

Known around the world for his string of smash-hit spy thrillers touched off by 1978 s Eye of the Needle, Ken Follett s taut tales -- spiked with more than a dash of sex appeal -- have earned this author (and sometime blues guitarist) a reputation as a master of international intrigue.
