As others have reviewed, great suspenseful thriller. By the time I got to the midpoint of the book, I couldn't put it down. A great page turner and a story that will transport you back in time. Recommended!

One of the best mysteries ever written...a thrilling and frightening race to the finish, set in WWII England. Even if you've seen the movie and read this book before, your pulse will race at the end! A classic!

I'm not usually a fan of thrillers. This one, however, I found captivating. The historical setting made it especially interesting. All of Ken Follett's books that I've read have been well-written. The historical perspective is fascinating, the story lines compelling, and the characters well-developed.

The book that made Ken Follett a star of literature. This is a classic all-time favorite of mine. I read it when it first came out. I enjoyed the movie just as much. If you have not read this book yet, and you enjoy Ken Follett, you should go back and seek this one out. The story is set during WWII, so it wouldn't matter if you read it in the 80's or read it now. If you are a Follett fan, you will love it.

My first Ken Follett book and it was great!
Loved the historical descriptions and events. Characters were interesting and not too over the top. Looking forward to reading his other works.

If you are a fan of Ken Follett and haven't read this book I would recommend getting it.
As usual he has written a great suspense/thriller book. It takes place during WWII and has to do with German itelligence pitted against the Allies. I highly recommend.

Read this a long time ago and remember liking it. Bought it for my husband who recently became a "reader" but he didn't want to read it because it was set during World War II. Oh well...
