Doc ✓ The Man from St Petersburg ☆ Ken Follett

His name was Feliks  He came to London to commit a murder that would change history  A master manipulator he had many How can I root for an assassinKen Follett has always been a personal favorite of mine I love the way he mixes fiction with reality in all of his books whether he’s chosen to write about the Cold War or the lead up to World War 1 or 2 The writing style is never something I complain about with Follett and here is no exception The sentences bring me to a whole other plane of historical existence where history has altered to bring me there as an observer PerfectionKen Follett spares not an ounce of genius in bringing his characters to life and weaving them together in electrifying narrative His artistry is one that burdens the reader with sorting the protagonists from the antagonists enriching each character’s complexion and back story with such talent that you may just end up pulling for the whole lot as the novel winds to a closeSituated in the lead up to the First World War in 1914 London we find Britain pushing to secure an alliance with the Russian Empire War seems all but inevitable and intel indicates a low chance of Allied success unless the whole of the Triple Entente is prepared to throw their martial weight against GermanyThis thriller has a lot to offer from the international intrigue of anarchist subversion ism hurled against the British secret police an endearing and dynamic cast chase scenes to the masterful pacing and pitch perfect dialogue all encased in a historical backdrop that will lend the reader in a sense of familiarity with prewar London Sure a few of the plot turns are a bit too sharp and escape seuences faintly implausible but the gripping prose and fluorescent cast are than adeuate to keep you anchored firmly to your seatIt may not be as polished around the edges as Eye of the Needle or as seductive as his massively medieval opus Pillars of the Earth but Follett’s The Man From St Petersburg is surely just as absorbing insisting you delay that next meal just a little while longer so you can see how the current scene plays out
