"Ken Follett has done it once more . . . goes down with the ease and impact of a well-prepared martini." —New York Times Book Review

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.

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