THE BEST THRILLER EVER...

The way the book unfolds and the sort of twists it takes, its totally riveting. Also, I learnt so much on genetic manipulation, on what really must be going on and how unaware we really are... its really an eye-opener!! Thumbs up Mr. Follett, thi one is a masterpiece!

Good story line but long on words

I am a fan of Ken Follets but thought this was not his best. Also was sad to see all of the typos and misspelled words, detract from the book..

    The Third Twin, and then some.

    Dr. Jeannie Ferrami, of the Jones Fall University¿s genetic research unit, stumbles across an amazing discovery in Ken Follet¿s novel, The Third Twin. Using software she developed herself, Dr. Ferrami has been searching through medical records in order to locate identical twins, the catch is, not any twins will do. They had to be raised apart, and never had met. Sounds impossible, right? Well she has done it. Steve Logan and Dennis Pinker were identical twins that had never met, nor knew that the other existed. The problem with this case is, both men had been born to different mothers, on different dates. As Jeannie attempts to unveil the mystery behind these odd events, some of the most powerful men in America are out to sabotage her. She is tossed into a bizarre maze of evidence that could destroy more then her reputation. Berrington Jones, Preston Barck, and Senator Proust have a dirty secret. Under the command of President Nixon, the men had lead a secret operation in the U.S Army Medical Research Command in response to the CIA¿s news that the soviets had begun an experiment that had the potential to shatter the world. This possibility scared Nixon into the launch of the program that would spell the demise of these three men if anyone ever found out what they did. And now, Dr. Ferrami is hot on their trail, they know it and are desperate to stop her. Dr. Ferrami uses a connection at the FBI to run her software through the FBI¿s database. The result of this search is eight men with identical fingerprints, which could only mean one thing - eight identical men. Yet after tracking them all own, Dr. Ferrami discovers some interesting new developments. Frightened by the turn of events, she plunges into the horrifying case. The only explanation she can think of is the mysterious connection to Genetico. How does this fit into her puzzle? Does it play any factor at all? How far are Berrington, Barck and Proust willing to go to keep Jeannie from discovering their secret? Read this intense novel to answer these questions it is assured that you will not believe its conclusion

    Different Follett Style

    I was turned onto Ken Follett with The Pillars of the Earth and World Without End. I then tried this book and found it exciting and thrilling ride much different from the other two books.

    GOOD BOOK!!!

    This is the first book that I have read by Ken Follett. It was definetly a page turner for me. I was a little disappointed with the ending though--should've been better.

    I liked it

    It was an interesting read and I couldn't put it down. On the other hand some of the science wasn't explained absolutely correctly.

    Nature vs nurture

    the book presents the nature vs nurture situation very well, with enough twists to the plot plus some drama and romance thrown in and it is not too heavy a reading either.
