Publisher Comments:

Ken Follett's World War I masterpiece — now in trade paperback for the first time.

His name was Feliks. He came to London to commit a murder that would change history. A master manipulator, he had many weapons at his command, but against him were ranged the whole of the English police, a brilliant and powerful lord, and the young Winston Churchill himself. These odds would have stopped any man in the world — except the man from St. Petersburg...

Review:

"Eerily plausible...one of Follett's finest." Time

Review:

"Ken Follett has done it once more...goes down with the ease and impact of a well-prepared martini." The New York Times Book Review

Alexander Hoskinson, March 5, 2012 (view all comments by Alexander Hoskinson)
This is a great spy story that shows the lifestyles and class divisions of pre-WWI England. As historical fiction, it does a great job of bringing to life some events that helped caused The Great War.
