Ken Follett
Ken Follett attended University College, London, where he graduated in 1970 with a B.A. in philosophy. He then worked as a journalist for the "South Wales Echo" and for London's "Evening News". By the age of 27, when he published his first successful novel, "The Eye of the Needle" (originally published as "Storm Island"), Follett was able to turn his full attention to writing thrillers and cultivating a career marked by successive, international bestsellers.
From the Publisher
Annotation A woman scientist unwittingly happens upon a genetic conspiracy orchestrated by a biotech company, right-wing politicians, and her research institute.
First Line "A heat wave lay over Baltimore like a shroud, the leafy suburbs were cooled by a hundred thousand lawn sprinklers, but the affluent inhabitants stayed inside with the air-conditioning on full blast. On North Avenue, listless hookers hugged the shade and sweated under their hairpieces, and the kids on the street corners dealt dope out of the pockets of baggy shorts. It was late summer, but fall seemed a long way off."
Editors Note Through her research on twins and the genetic components of aggression, scientist Jeannie Ferrami makes a startling discovery. Using a restricted FBI database, she finds two young men who appear to be identical twins: Steve, a law student, and Dennis: a convicted murderer. Yet they were born on different days, to different mothers, in hospitals hundreds of miles apart.As Ferrami delves into their backgrounds, she unwittingly locks horns with some of the most powerful forces in America, including the university where she works, The New York Times, even the Pentagon. What secret has Ferrami uncovered? Can she trust her boss and mentor, or must she put her life in the hands of Steve Logan, the twin she finds herself falling in love with--even though he's surrounded by intrigue and suspicion? But one thing is certain: There are those who will stop at nothing to keep their chilling conspiracy in the shadows. . . .
Editors Note 3 Using a restricted FBI database, Jeannie Ferrami has located identical twins born to different mothers. With growing horror, she uncovers a far-reaching conspiracy involving disturbing genetic experiments.
