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.

      "Enormous and brilliant ...a great epic tale...crammed with characters unbelievably alive across the great gulf of centuries...touches all human emotion--love and hate, loyalty and treachery, hope and despair. See for yourself. This is truly a novel to get lost in."--Cosmopolitan "Wonderful...will hold you, fascinate you, surround you."--Chicago Sun-Times "An extraordinary epic buttressed by suspense...a monumental masterpiece...A towering triumph from a major talent."--Booklist "A seesaw of tension....A novel that entertains, instructs, and satisfies on a grand scale" --Publishers Weekly
