King of Thrillers

Which book lover, particularly of the ‘Thrillers’ genre has not heard of Ken Follett? The British born author began writing ( a shortage of funds to fix his car was the key reason!) under several pseudonyms before he catapulted to fame in his own name with his novel ‘Eye of the Needle’. Eye of the Needle was his eleventh book, and his first success.

It is estimated that his books have sold around 100 million copies in all!

Fans of his books are eagerly awaiting his new novel – part of a trilogy – titled ‘Fall of Giants’ releasing in September 2010. The second book will be due in 2010 and then the last, in 2014.

Meanwhile, like our readers, we too are are eagerly awaiting the book’s release and will have it on our shelves as soon as we can. Here’s a preview of the book’s cover:

Here’s a link to an interview with him recently.
