This Book is awesome

The Key to Rebecca. This is an amazing book, with suspence, action, romance, just about everything you could ever want in a book. It takes place in North Africa in 1942, a crucial point in the War. You, as the reader, is trasported into the mind of Alex Wolff, and Major Vandam, in this wonderfully crafted suspense novel. While you read you find yourself as the character, thinking like him, seeing things like him, and practically becoming him. As I read I found myself taking sides at points in the story. Like when Vandam is hot on the trail of Wolff. I found myself wanting Wolff to elude Vandam yet another time. This book practically has not a dry moment and is wonderfully made.

Just Okay

It wasn't a book I HAD to keep reading but it was okay. I thought KF's "A Dangerous Fortune" was much better.

    I first read The Key to Rebecca more than a quarter of a century

    I first read The Key to Rebecca more than a quarter of a century ago, read it, thought about it after reading German Field Marshall Erwin Rommel exploits in Disciples of Fortune, got it; and behold, it captivated me like the first time. That is what truly great novels do. There is always something new to find in them each time you pick the book up and read it again. Centered on the fascinating character of the German spy codenamed "Sphinx", who Rommel slips into Cairo, so that he could send back classified information needed for his final push to conquer what was left of North Africa (Egypt)not under Nazi control, Follet through this fascinating and well-developed character and other remarkable characters who got drawn into his world, tells the story of the last phase of Nazi Germany's North African campaign in a manner that sets him apart from other writers.

    This complex plot in the hands of Follet the master storyteller, comes out as a smooth flowing, fast-paced, colorfully-set and character-rich story. The descriptions are masterly done, and narrative and dialogue are used effectively to make this story one of the best classic spy stories out there.

    Fantastic read

    I really enjoy this author's writing. This was another page-turner with a similar theme to that of Jackdaws.

    Excellent spy novel

    This has to be one of the best spy novels ever written. One of Ken Follet's best.
