Publisher's Summary

Nobody can cause an earthquake...can they?

This is the question that troubles hotshot young FBI agent Judy Maddox in Ken Follett's hold-your-breath thriller.

Judy's boss has a grudge against her, so he gives her a dumb assignment: to investigate an anonymous threat from a group that claims that it can trigger earthquakes.

Judy's research leads her to maverick seismologist Michael Quercus, who tells her it is possible for an earthquake to be caused deliberately. And when a tremor in a remote desert area shows signs of being machine-generated, Judy knows he was right.

But who is responsible for the earthquake? Judy must find out before another tremor strikes. Helped by the erratic but attractive Michael, she races to pinpoint the terrorists' next target before they trigger the ultimate disaster.

With The Hammer of Eden Ken Follett is at the top of his form, delivering a state-of-the-art suspense thriller to rival his best work.

A Thrilling and Worrying Possibility?

Making earthquakes as a Forceful and Terrifying Weapon is made to seem all too possible, and the reaction of The Establishment ("do nothing, and the threat will go away") is all too probable to leave the listening observer confronting this crescendo of events unmoved.

Somewhat disappointing read and predictive plot .

Not the best storyline and narration could be improved. Previous novels always exceeded expectations. Characters not believable.

Excellent as usual!

My first audible book. Ken is a favourite author of mine, so I hoped that the weirdness of having a book read to me would be smoothed by this; and thankfully it was, I enjoyed both the story and the narration.
