The worldwide phenomenon from the bestselling author of Fall of Giants, Winter of the World, and Edge of Eternity.
His code name was “The Needle.” He was a German aristocrat of extraordinary intelligence—a master spy with a legacy of violence in his blood, and the object of the most desperate manhunt in history. . . .
But his fate lay in the hands of a young and vulnerable English woman, whose loyalty, if swayed, would assure his freedom—and win the war for the Nazis. . . .

Ken Follett is one of the world’s best-loved authors, selling more than 160 million copies of his thirty books. Follett’s first bestseller was Eye of the Needle, a spy story set in the Second World War.
In 1989 The Pillars of the Earth was published, and has since become the author's most successful novel. It reached number one on bestseller lists around the world and was an Oprah’s Book Club pick.
Its sequel, World Without End, proved equally popular, and the Kingsbridge series has sold 38 million copies worldwide. The third book, A Column of Fire, will be published by Viking in Fall 2017.
Follett lives in Hertfordshire, England, with his wife Barbara. Between them they have five children, six grandchildren, and three Labradors.
Nazi forces dominate Europe, and the Allies in England are using an elaborate subterfuge to convince Germany of a massive invasion, purposely creating confusion as to its location. A German operative named Die Nadel, The Needle, calculating and ruthless, is entrusted by Hitler himself to find out the truth. 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. There are flaws--actors occasionally sound as if theyre too far from the microphone, and there are both melodrama and stereotypes--but the storys compelling suspense hurtles listeners to the riveting conclusion.
