Ken Follett is one of the world's best-loved authors, selling more than 170 million copies of his thirty-two 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 Follett's most popular novel. It reached number one on bestseller lists around the world and was an Oprah's Book Club pick. Its sequels, World Without End and A Column of Fire, proved equally popular, and the Kingsbridge series has sold more than forty million copies worldwide. Follett lives in Hertfordshire, England, with his wife, Barbara. Between them they have five children, six grandchildren, and two Labradors.
"Urgent and fiercely compelling . . . Never is first-rate
entertainment that has something important to say. It deserves the
popular success it will almost certainly achieve."
—The Washington Post
"Ken Follett can't write a bad book, and Never is his best. It's terrifying. I defy anyone to put it down once the last 150 pages are reached."
"Superstar novelist Ken Follett’s what-if political thriller . . . is so exciting—and so plausible—you won’t want to look away."

"Terrific . . . A powerful, commanding performance from one of the top writers in the genre."

"A complex, scary thriller that feels too plausible for comfort. You’ll be so absorbed in the story threads that you’ll follow them anywhere—and you’ll suddenly realize you’ve read hundreds of pages. . . . On one level, it’s great entertainment; on another, a window into a sobering possibility."
"Absolutely compelling . . . A smart, scary, and all-too-plausible thriller."
