Publisher Description

Edge of Eternity is the epic, final novel in Ken Follett's captivating and hugely ambitious Century trilogy. On its own or read in sequence with Fall of Giants and Winter of the World, this is an irresistible and spellbinding epic about the fight for personal freedom set during the Cold War.

A FIGHT AGAINST INJUSTICE

1961, and in the United States George Jakes, a bright young lawyer in the Kennedy administration and fierce supporter of the civil rights movement, boards a Greyhound bus in Washington with Verena, an employee of Martin Luther King whom he is in love with, to protest against segregation.

A RISING TIDE OF DANGER
In East Germany, teacher Rebecca Hoffmann finds her entire life has been a lie as she is targeted by the secret police, even as her younger brother, Walli, dreams of escape across the Berlin Wall to Britain. In Russia, activist Tania Dvorkin narrowly evades capture for producing an illegal news-sheet, her actions all the more perilous because her brother, Dimka, is an emerging star of the Communist Party.

A COLD WAR THAT COULD ELIMINATE THE WORLD FOREVER
In a sweeping tale that began in 1911, the descendants of five families will now find their true destiny as they fight for their individual freedom in a world facing the mightiest clash of superpowers it has ever seen.

Another brilliant read

Ken Follett never fails to grab my attention on the first page. Thankfully he writes long stories but I still find myself worrying that it is going to end. I found this book a little testing as there are so many different people, families and threads to follow, but very insightful, it brought me up to date on what has been happening on the world scene through the greater part of my life. Loved it. I hope there are many more books in you yet Ken.

Yet Again Another Superb Read.

My only disappointment is that the trilogy is now complete. Thoroughly enjoyed all three books as well as many of Ken’s other books. Five Stars is not enough!
