Branching out to the hills of Pakistan, this fiction novel produced by Ken Follett is a riveting tale of betrayal, renewed love, and heartbreaks. Providing medical aid to a small village in Pakistan, two Peace Core operatives, husband and wife, were living peacefully. *Little did the wife know that her husband was an undercover KGB agent finding information about the local armies/militias (who are fighting with the KGB). Just after the wife became pregnant a man, whom she had once been madly in love with, came as a reconnaissance agent for America (America was siding with Pakistan). In the coming weeks, old flames would be rekindled, lives are put on the line, and bonds of love are stretched to the brink.
This is a truly inspirational tale; Ken Follett at his best. He has really done his research on the local cultures of Pakistan and the overall layout of the country. The literature of this book is classic Follett, with intense action scenes to heartfelt moments that reach deep into your mind. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a good read.

Really liked it.

I have not read a book by Ken Follett that I didn't like. Some better than others, but they have all been a good read.

    Too much "romance" & not enough intrigue!

    I have enjoyed many of Ken Follett's novels in the past as he was always able to balance action, romance, and intrigue so well. Sadly, here it reads more like a romance novel set in a potentially intriguingly location. The female lead was incredibly hard to like and the ending was absolutely impossible not to see coming. I would still recommend Follett highly just not this piece.
