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

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.

Look out for Ken Follett's newest book, A Column of Fire, available now.


  • Ok plot, weak characters and ending

    By 8MW9
    I honestly knew it wasn’t going to be a good book from the first few pages. The characters are poorly built, the dialogues are pretty absurd and the plot, which is OK, was wrapped up in a very simplistic way. Very unfortunate
  • As expected

    By OldPistol
    Follett never disappoints me.
  • Fictional History of the Origins of WWI

    By wimhofb
    A continually interesting page-turner, this novel explores the origins of WWI from the Russian and English points of view. Providing an accurate portrait of class relations in England, a fatal love triangle propels a family drama that continues to surprise and intrigue as it moves towards a fiery conclusion. Very satisfying.

    Good book. First Follett book I read.
  • Disappointing

    By lostfeathers
    After reading the Follett books chronologically up to this one, this one was a major letdown. Follett roundly bashed the Brits and elevated the Anarchists. Charlotte and Lydia lived happily ever after in spite of their complicity in Alex's assassination. This was a strange ending, it makes one wonder if Follette was drinking what Lydia was addicted to...
  • Page -turner!
