Follett to a dramatic climax with the same masterful control that guided eye of the needle and the pillars of the earth. I don't usually enjoy historical thrillers but admit to being totally captivated by Ken Follett's A Dangerous Fortune.
A Dangerous Fortune book. Ken Follett's books are long and have very multi-layered plots. They are not for readers looking for instant gratification, as they are not fast reads. However, they are SO worth the time invested. In 1866, tragedy strikes at the exclusive Windfield School. The plot twists are unparalleled genius. There's nothing I love more than a book that surprises me, and Follett does that every time. I love how his "bad guys" get justice in the end, just not in the way you would expect. His "good guys" always get what they deserve, but often not for many years.
