If you're fascinated by stories of Nazi Germany, you'll be enthralled from the first moment you begin listening to Eye of the Needle.

At the heart of this stunning and suspenseful story about Nazi espionage lies a ruthless killer whose code name is "The Needle". Because of his level of expertise and skill, he is privy to all of the utmost secrets the Allies' think they are maintaining. However, because of his knowledge and because of his yearnings as an assassin, he's willing to do whatever it takes to bring victory to the country he loves.

What he's not expecting is to encounter another human being who seems bent on capturing his heart. He meets the lonely Englishwoman on a deserted island, and although he's on a mission of murder, he can't help but be captivated by her. For someone whose sole purpose in life is to defend Germany and fight for the cause of his leader, "The Needle" finds himself struggling to maintain control over the things his heart is leading him to do.

Eye of the Needle is a masterpiece, and the author does an incredible job of painting the picture of the changing heart of a trained and loyal killer in this work of suspense and intrigue that will have you guessing with every chapter.

Ken Follett has been delighting his fans with his thrilling and imaginative novels for decades.

In 2008, he was presented with an award regaling him for his promotional work with regards to architecture.

He's also one of Shakespeare's biggest fans.

One enemy spy knows the secret of the Allies’ greatest deception, a brilliant aristocrat and ruthless assassin—code name: “The Needle”—who holds the key to the ultimate Nazi victory.

Only one person stands in his way: a lonely Englishwoman on an isolated island, who is coming to love the killer who has mysteriously entered her life.
