    "Eye of the Needle is a thriller that I had a lot of fun read. The mysterious elements in the book will really take you on for a ride and left me wanting to read more and more each time that I had to put this book down. I found it especially appealing to me because I'm interested in history. "

    "Ken Follet is a master story teller, oneof my favortite authors His long engaging novels will have you missing sleep and checking out of your life for a few days. Code to Zero is not that novel however. This is not Follet's best work but it is still good enough for a light read."

    #7Whiteout

    Whiteout
    "Everyone likes a page-turner, and Follett is the best." —The Philadelphia Inquirer

    "A hell of a storyteller" (Entertainment Weekly), #1 New York Times bestselling author Ken Follett reinvents the thriller with each new novel. But nothing matches the intricate knife-edge drama of Whiteout. . . . 


    A missing canister of a deadly virus. A lab technician bleeding from the eyes. Toni Gallo, the security director of a Scottish medical research firm, knows she has problems, but she has no idea of the nightmare to come.
     
    As a Christmas Eve blizzard whips out of the north, several people, Toni among them, converge on a remote family house. All have something to gain or lose from the drug developed to fight the virus. As the storm worsens, the emotional sparks—jealousies, distrust, sexual attraction, rivalries—crackle; desperate secrets are revealed; hidden traitors and unexpected heroes emerge. Filled with startling twists at every turn, Whiteout rockets Follett into a class by himself.

    Look out for Ken's newest book, A Column of Fire, available now.

    "Triple is not a credible story. It's not much of a thriller. It just throws together all the old cliches and mixes in boring details."
