As the secret negotiations progress, the destinies of these characters become ineluctably enmeshed. And, as Europe prepares for the catastrophe of war, the final private tragedy that will shatter the complacency of the Waldens is acted out.
I really don't like the abridged versions of books. With this one, I was a bit lost and the whole story fell flat; no meat on the bones, didn't work for me. I wish you wouldn't allow abridged versions of Ken Follett's books!
His early books are not History Lessons, but excellent Paperback Thrillers, ideal to distract during Trips etc.
Only offering Abridged versions is a disservice to members. There is simply not much to be distilled.
This effort falls between two Stools. You are never swept away or have the chance to care and understand the Characters.
Gave it 4 Stars as it has been over a Decade since enjoying the full novel & this was an Expensive Refresher. Hope that Key to Rebecca is re-released as an unabridged story, along with The Man from St. Petersburg & Lie Down with Lions.
