Publisher's Summary

In Paper Money three seemingly unrelated events occur on a single morning in London. An MP wakes up after spending the night with a beautiful young woman. A tycoon meets a leading Bank of England official for breakfast. And an underworld gang boss briefs his crew.

Nothing so far to keep the tabloid editors awake. Until ambitious young reporter Kevin Hart uncovers his first promising link....

What he begins to uncover is conspiracy - conspiracy to defraud, whatever the human cost. On one unforgettable day in the capital, fortunes will be destroyed and ideals will be shattered by the discovery that the whole truth is too dangerous to print, in best-selling author Ken Follett's intricately plotted thriller.

Pollies pros and villains.

Kept you interested but the ending was no great surprise. Nice peek into the world of last century villains from both sides of the tracks.

Too short and no ending

This was a good story with well-developed characters and brilliant accents by the reader. However, it was too short. Also, it ended without wrapping up any of the story lines, which was extremely irritating.

Great Plot - Great Reader - Great Story

After reading previous comments I was almost prepared for an abrupt end if not an unfinished story. It's not. It's a great story that needs attention however. It's full of details a distracted listener might loose. A carefully planned crime, two really, and where casually plays nevertheless such a decisive role. About Jonathan Keeble? Probalbly the best reader. He would be able to create suspense even if he read a phonebook. I chose this audiobook not so much for Ken Follet whom I do appreciate (sometimes a bit too long in his descriptions for my taste but not this time in this brilliant case) but for the fact that it was read by Jonathan Keeble...

hooked from page one

This was my first Ken Follett book - although I know he's been a well-reputed writer for many years. It has a strong storyline and the characters are well-described, and vividly brought to life. The narrator is also first-class and the whole package was a delight. I'll certainly get other books by Ken Follett, if this is his normal standard! I feel as if I've just discovered a new 'fave' author...

Disappointed

I could not get to grips with this story. Not what I expected at all.
