A young Russian assasin comes to 1917 London to assasinate the young ambassador from Russai and spur the revolution. He meets his adversary, the Earl of Walden who is conferencing with the Russian Ambassador to engage the Russians with England in the coming war. As always, Follett has the feel of early 20th century london to a tea. His characters are well done and you will not know till the final pages who is successful in their ambitions. He includes a nice early love who is now married to Walden formerly the lover of our assasin!! A shorter book in under 350 pages from Follett.

A Russian assassination plot and love story set in London at the time of WW1, with young Winston Churchill as one of the characters. Written in 1982, but it's a great Ken Follett worth picking up again if you read it a while ago.
