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.

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.

Everything that I wanted to say about this book was said in pages 3 & 4. I will add one more comment, this is one of the best written books I have read in a long time. Towards the latter part of the book, I was literally sitting on the edge of my seat, turning every page with a mixture of fear, dread, and a lot of anticipation that Ellis, Jane, and baby Chantel would finally reach their destination alive. To the author, my thanks is giving your book praise, a recommended read, and a five star rating.

This was a very good story. Hard to believe what life is like over there in the 2013s. It is like another world and Ken Follette seems to know how to explain it and still write a great story. I would highly recommend it. Iwould also recommend it for discussions at Book Clubs.

This book is another in the long list of superlative stories by a master story teller. Follett has the unique ability of making a somewhat ordinary tale into a gripping novel--one that makes it tough to put the book down. The ability of his main characters to get out of extremely perilous situations strains the imagination at times, but he pulls it off beautifully. I'm already looking forward to another Follett novel.

As an avid Ken Follet reader,someone who believes that Pillars of the Earth may be the best book I have ever read, I cannot recommend this book. I am currently 200 pages into it and I may just put it away.

I read this book many years ago and enjoyed it very much. So I ordered it as an audiobook. It is the worst audiobook I have ever listened to, and I listen to 15 to 20 or more a year. The reader reads at breakneck speed with little inflection to his voice. I gave up listening midway through the second CD.
