The award-winning international bestseller that launched the career of master storyteller Ken Follett.
Ken Follett was only twenty-seven when he wrote the award-winning novel Eye of the Needle, which became an international bestseller. After writing several more successful thrillers he surprised everyone with The Pillars of the Earth, about the building of a cathedral in the Middle Ages, which continues to captivate millions of readers all over the world. The long-awaited sequel, World Without End, was a number one bestseller in the United States, Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Spain and France. His epic Century trilogy tells the entire history of the twentieth century, seen through the eyes of five linked families: one American, one English, one German, one Russian, and one Welsh.
A tense, marvellously detailed suspense thriller based on a solid foundation of fact. * The Sunday Times *
