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.

I've read 'Pillars' and the subsequent follow up and enjoyed them both greatly. 'The Man from St. Petersburg' is an excellent book! The characters, background, politics, and plot are outstanding. It engaged me all the way through and I was sad that it came to an end! Follett is a master storyteller and is exceptional when it comes to intimate scenes. Highly recommended by this book addict!

I read this book for my Honors Geography 9 class. This book takes place in the early 1900's and follows critical men through their struggle to nagotiate a way for alliances in war. Meanwhile a Russian anarchist is trying to assanate one of them. In this book, I learned about about the way the social classes were in England. How some are filthy rich and others are dirt poor. I liked the way the author (Ken Follett) depicted Feliks, and the way he did things as an anarchist. I feel this book was written within my reading level, although my reading level is well above my age. I would recommend this book to almost anybody, it has a little of everything.

As expected from Ken Follett, this is another in a long line of very good books. Interesting, keep me guessing until the end... Love it.
