"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.


  • Great book

    By Dan Vermilion
    Great book. Moves well and keeps you excited. The story challenges your intellect, but is fun to read.
  • The Man From ST. Petersburg

    By SPBerko
    I have read almost all of Ken Follett’s novels and thoroughly enjoyed them. This is the worst, very amateurish and not worth the time.
  • Ok plot, weak characters and ending

    By 8MW9
    I honestly knew it wasn’t going to be a good book from the first few pages. The characters are poorly built, the dialogues are pretty absurd and the plot, which is OK, was wrapped up in a very simplistic way. Very unfortunate
  • As expected

    By OldPistol
    Follett never disappoints me.
  • Fictional History of the Origins of WWI

    By wimhofb
    A continually interesting page-turner, this novel explores the origins of WWI from the Russian and English points of view. Providing an accurate portrait of class relations in England, a fatal love triangle propels a family drama that continues to surprise and intrigue as it moves towards a fiery conclusion. Very satisfying.

    Good book. First Follett book I read.
  • Disappointing

    By lostfeathers
    After reading the Follett books chronologically up to this one, this one was a major letdown. Follett roundly bashed the Brits and elevated the Anarchists. Charlotte and Lydia lived happily ever after in spite of their complicity in Alex's assassination. This was a strange ending, it makes one wonder if Follette was drinking what Lydia was addicted to...
  • Page -turner!
