Publisher Description

New York Times Bestseller

The new must-read epic from master storyteller Ken Follett: more than a thriller, it’s an action-packed, globe-spanning drama set in the present day.
 
“A compelling story, and only too realistic.” —Lawrence H. Summers, former U.S. Treasury Secretary

“Every catastrophe begins with a little problem that doesn’t get fixed.” So says Pauline Green, president of the United States, in Follett’s nerve-racking drama of international tension.
 
A shrinking oasis in the Sahara Desert; a stolen US Army drone; an uninhabited Japanese island; and one country’s secret stash of deadly chemical poisons: all these play roles in a relentlessly escalating crisis.
 
Struggling to prevent the outbreak of world war are a young woman intelligence officer; a spy working undercover with jihadists; a brilliant Chinese spymaster; and Pauline herself, beleaguered by a populist rival for the next president election.

Never is an extraordinary novel, full of heroines and villains, false prophets and elite warriors, jaded politicians and opportunistic revolutionaries. It brims with cautionary wisdom for our times, and delivers a visceral, heart-pounding read that transports readers to the brink of the unimaginable.

A little slow starting out but then the paced quickened. It is not beyond the realm of possibility that this novel could someday become reality. So sad that would be.

Starts slowly; a bit fragmented but 2nd half picks up

Ken Follett has painted several characters in a fairly cartoonish manner making many of their actions and decisions illogical. Follett demonstrates an unexpectedly shallow understanding of American ideals, morality and politics. Because of its modern day setting and what we know of global politics and international relations, the story stretches our credulity to the breaking point. Despite this, there are some exciting segments of the novel, mostly those occurring on the North African continent, that will be informative and memorable for many readers.
