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.
"An entertaining historical soap opera." 09/01/2012 "The violence in Mr. Follett's stories can be raw, but it is also kept brief. One notable exception: scenes in this book capture the shock value of warfare in the Pacific. The assault on Pearl Harbor is described in a style so vivid that it recalls the 9/11 attacks." - Janet Maslin 09/17/2012 "[Q]uintessential Follett. The delight remains in the details." - Craig Wilson 09/16/2012
