- Author Ken Follett
I’ve read this book at least a couple of times before, and although I remembered it quite fondly, I couldn’t totally remember how the events unfolded. This readthrough was a little different to those that have gone before - I found the set-up a little convenient and some of the dialogue a little clunky, particularly anything involving Steve’s parents.
It’s weird how this happens, as this book was a proper favourite of mine for a while. I enjoy Ken Follett’s writing and have a lot of good memories of other books of his, but sadly this one didn’t live up to his other works now I have a more broader depth of reading.
Having said that, I still think the story itself is fascinating and entirely possible and goes to show how the concept of being falsely accused and even convicted of something isn’t out of the realms of possibility. A good story, overall.
