"Vintage Follett . . . This is his most ambitious novel and it succeeds admirably." -- USA Today

Ellis, the American. Jean-Pierre, the Frenchman. They were two men on opposite sides of the Cold War, with a woman torn between them. Together, they formed a triangle of passion and deception, racing from terrorist bombs in Paris to the violence and intrigue of Afghanistan--to the moment of truth and deadly decision for all of them. . . .

Look out for Ken Follett's newest book, A Column of Fire , available September 2017.

I am blown away by Follett's Hemingwayesque style and suspense. The author drew me right into the land of Afghanistan and its unique culture. I felt as if I were there. Follett's plot development makes such an incredible story highly realistic. The writer skillfully revealed the most intimate inner longings of each character in direct contrast to sculpting amazing deception and subterfuge. Warning: graphic in more ways than one.

Very interesting. I didn't think I would like it, but, I found that I couldn't put it down. Good story, except for all the 4 letter words. Could limit those, and shorten the description of love making making details. After 1 or 2 para nothing more is really needed. But, he is a great story teller.

In the Afghan mountains lies the Valley of Five Lions, a place of ancient legend. To it come two young aid workers and an American who has a message for the legendary guerrilla leader, Masud, who is wanted dead or alive by the Russians. Below, in the Valley, a woman stumbles upon a terrifying treachery, leading to a chase across impassable mountains and a confrontation that echoes all our nightmares.
