About the Author


Author Picture

Ken Follett

Ken Follett burst into the book world in 1978 with Eye of the Needle, a taut and original thriller with a memorable woman character in the central role. The book won the Edgar award and was made into a film with Kate Nelligan and Donald Sutherland.

He went on to write four more bestselling thrillers: Triple, The Key to Rebecca, The Man from St Petersburg, and Lie Down with Lions. Cliff Robertson and David Soul starred in the miniseries of The Key to Rebecca. In 1994 Timothy Dalton, Omar Sharif and Marg Helgenberger starred in the miniseries of Lie Down with Lions.

On Wings of Eagles the true story of how two employees of Ross Perot were rescued from Iran during the revolution of 1979 was also made into a miniseries with Richard Crenna as Ross Perot and Burt Lancaster as Colonel "Bull" Simons.

Ken then surprised readers by radically changing course with Pillars of the Earth, a novel about building a cathedral in the Middle Ages. Published in September 1989 to rave reviews, it was on the New York Times bestseller list for eighteen weeks. It also reached the No. 1 position on lists in Canada, Great Britain and Italy, and was on the German bestseller list for six years. It has now become a worldwide cult.

Although he abandoned the straightforward spy genre, his stories still had powerful narrative drive, strong women characters, and elements of suspense and intrigue. He followed Pillars of the Earth with Night over Water, A Dangerous Fortune, and A Place Called Freedom.

Then he returned to the thriller. The Third Twin is a scorching suspense novel about a young woman scientist who stumbles over a secret experiment in genetic engineering. Miniseries rights were sold to CBS for $1,400,000, a record price for four hours of television.

Ken Follett is married to Barbara Follett, the Member of Parliament for Stevenage in Hertfordshire. They live in Stevenage and London. Ken is an ardent fan of Shakespeare's work, and is often to be seen at performances by the Royal Shakespeare Company. An enthusiastic amateur musician, he plays bass guitar in a band called 'Damn Right I Got the Blues'. He is president of the Dyslexia Institute and a council member of the National Literacy Trust.

Reviews of this title


'Ken Follett – master of suspense – spins an excruciatingly taut drama on the aerial equivalent of the Orient Express ... a whirlwind of romance and intrigue ... thoroughly satisfying ... His best since 'Eye of the Needle!' – Publishers Weekly

'A spellbinding tale of tension, ambition and greed!' – Somerset American
