Only one person stands in his way: a lonely Englishwoman on an isolated island, who is coming to love the killer who has mysteriously entered her life.
This is Ken Follett's unsurpassed and unforgettable masterwork of suspense, intrigue, and dangerous machinations of the human heart.

"Sheer suspense." (Washington Post)
"Fans of old-time radio drama will particularly enjoy this full-cast version. Narrator Eric Lincoln proceeds smoothly, until the action starts cooking, and his urgency turns up the heat. The small ensemble creates a wide range of lead and supporting characters." (AudioFile)
Since it only listed one narrator I thought that it was a reading of the book.
I have heard the book read by one person and it is a completely different experience than the different voices. As soon as I heard the second voice I knew this was not the version for me. The narrated notice should say Multiple, not just Eric Lincoln.
The writing is excellent. It is the presentation that is terrble.
Not his performance, the other voices completely bastardized the book.
Please remove book from my library, return my credit. AND PLEASE get the version with one narrator.
I wish that certain audiobook producers understood that people listen to audiobooks so that they can read at times they might not otherwise be able to. Read. I am not interested in having a book turned into some sort wierd play with multiple readers, wierd effects, interpretations that may or may not reflect the author's intended tone etc. There was an old Books on Tape version of this book where Richard Greene narrated it with barely an inflection and it was one of the best reads/listens of all time. This "narration" ruins the book.
Good Ludlum story. I read this many years ago and found the story line just as intriguing this time.
The voices, other than Lincoln's, seemed contrived, corny and often hard to understand. The book would have been better served if Lincoln's regular voice had been used throughout.
I just achieved App Scholar!! 1000 hours in 1 yr 7 mo and 10 days!!! I never thought I would make it this far!! Thanks Audible
This is one of Ken Follett early books and it is just as good as all the rest.The book has suspense,love and war!!! I think the great thing Ken does is add all the true History and true events in his books,Ken is a lot like John Jakes in that aspect.He even has Hitler in this book and Hitler depends a lot on his number one spy..I've read a lot of Kens books and this is a great read for in between book.. It's short and sweet with a good ending!!! The spy code name "The Needle" has met his match and she is the only one to slip through the cracks..
Yes, have enjoyed others.
