    Ellis, the American. Jean-Pierre, the Frenchman.... They were two men on opposite sides of the cold war, with a woman torn between them. Together, they formed a triangle of passion and deception, racing from terrorist bombs in Paris to the violence and intrigue of Afghanistan - and on to the moment of truth and a deadly decision for all of them.

    Daniel Mcafee says: "Good, but the multiple voice reading was poor"
    "makes me want my money back"
    Overall

    Follett has written some crackling page-turners and riveting stories. Unfortunately, "Lie Down with Lions" is not one of these. Predicable plot turns are laced with 1980s political correctness - CIA evil, American on "wrong side" in Vietnam -- and mixed with explicit sex so puerile that any but teen-aged boys are tempted to fast forward.
    Add to this a truly awful narration - especially the falsetto female voices - and the audio version is even worse than the print one.
