"Ken Follett has done it once more . . . goes down with the ease and impact of a well-prepared martini." â€”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 worldâ€”except the man from St. Petersburg.
