Lie Down With Lions

"Vintage Follett. . . . This is his most ambitious novel and it succeeds admirably." - USA Today
Ellis, the American. Jean-Pierre, the Frenchman. They were two men on opposite sides of the Cold War, with a woman torn between them. Together, they formed a triangle of passion and deception, racing from terrorist bombs in Paris to the violence and intrigue of Afghanistan-to the moment of truth and deadly decision for all of them. . . .
Rezension

"Sheer suspense." - The Washington Post
"Vintage Follett. . . . This is his most ambitious novel and it succeeds admirably . . . tense, vivid, exciting . . . balances physical action with internal drama . . . satisfies on deep levels." - USA Today
"May be Ken Follett's finest yet. . . . The suspense mounts as swiftly as Afghan villagers running to escape Russian guns-and the pages will turn just as fast." - Cosmopolitan

"Combines modern warfare, international espionage, and a love story while also, in typical Follett fashion, playing out the fate of his characters amid thrilling escapes and shattering revelations." - Richmond Times-Dispatch
"A gripping thriller and love story. . . . Follett builds the tension until it is as taut as a cable across the Khyber Pass. . . . There is an incredible sex scene and desperate trek across ice-covered mountains . . . an exotic setting, a strong, courageous heroine, a strong, courageous hero, good guys, bad guys and a supporting cast of thousands. . . . A roaring good read." - Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Solid suspense fiction . . . romance, adventure, exotic settings with a healthy dash of intrigue. . . . When it comes to reliable entertainment, few authors deliver as consistently as Follett." - Pittsburgh Press
"Follett's great strength is his female characters-they are smart, strong, independent, and when they love a man, by golly, he knows the game is up." - People
"Harrowing escapes . . . larger-than-life characters performing larger-than-life deeds. . . . It shouldn't work but it does." - Booklist
"Beautiful in conception and execution . . . full of adventure and love blended as only a master such as Follett can do . . . a most provocative tale." - Ocala Star Banner

"Exciting . . . romance, adventure, intrigue. . . . Ken Follett can hold his own with the best." - Indianapolis Star
" Lions roars . . . highly entertaining, quickly paced . . . skillfully crafted . . . and a nicely detailed quartet of characters that make the novel click." - Los Angeles Herald Examiner
"Deftly-built tension . . . the thrills of a chase . . . well-developed characters and atmosphere . . . keep the action going and have the credibility of a true tale." - The Orlando Sentinel
