Vorwort
The award-winning thriller that became an international bestseller and a distinguished film and launched the career of master storyteller Ken Follett.

Autorentext
The international number one bestseller Ken Follett has published over thirty books in a career spanning more than forty years. With global sales in excess of 170 million copies, his novels have been sold in over eighty countries and translated into thirty-seven languages. Ken was just twenty-seven when he wrote the award-winning thriller Eye of the Needle, which became an international success, but he surprised everyone in 1989 with The Pillars of the Earth. This story about the building of a cathedral in the Middle Ages continues to captivate millions of readers all over the world, and was voted into the top 100 of Britain's best-loved books in the BBC's The Big Read. Married to Barbara Follett, the former Labour Member of Parliament for Stevenage, Ken and his family live in a rambling rectory in Hertfordshire and also spend time in London and Antigua. An ardent admirer of the theatre, Ken is often seen at productions of Shakespeare's plays when not indulging his passions for writing and playing bass guitar.

Klappentext

Victory Hangs in the Balance

A Cold-Blooded Killer
His weapon is the stiletto, his codename: The Needle. He is Hitler's prize undercover agent - a ruthless and professional murderer. In England he uncovers the Allies' D-Day plans but his cover is blown in the process.

A Deadly Chase
Leaving a trail of bodies in his wake and with MI5 on his tail, The Needle races to a waiting U-boat to convey him and his critical message to Germany. But he hasn't planned for a storm-battered island and the remarkable young woman who lives there.

'A tense, marvellously detailed suspense thriller based on a solid foundation of fact' Sunday Times

'An absolutely terrific thriller, so pulse-pounding, so ingenious in its plotting and so frighteningly realistic that you simply cannot stop reading' Publishers Weekly
