He could be your lover, your friend...or your killer.

Scientist Jeannie Ferrami stumbles across a baffling mystery: Steve and Dan appear to be identical twins but were born on different days, to different mothers. One is a law student, the other a convicted murderer. They seem a world apart, but as Jeannie begins to fall in love with Steve, she finds her professional - and personal - future threatened.

But when Steve is accused of a terrible crime, Jeannie is forced to question just how unalike the two men really are. Together, she and Steve investigate and start to uncover buried secrets. But perhaps some secrets are best left alone....

A thrilling, chilling story of hidden evil, The Third Twin is a heart-stopping, spine-tingling story from master of suspense Ken Follett.

DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK INCOMPLETE RECORDING

Fantastic story but the audio recording is missing about a third of it. Have tried to raise with Audible but they are pretty hopeless

Defective Audiobook?

I suspect that the audiobook is defective, as in it the story seems to end well before it does in the book.

In the audiobook the ending is abrupt and inconclusive. This seemed strange, so I visited the book’s webpage on Wikipedia and read the section relating to plot to discover that the point at which the audiobook ends is not the point at which the book ends.

It looks as if the audiobook is short a good few chapters, which is unfortunate, because the story in the book comes to a satisfactory conclusion.

The Ending!

A really abrupt ending to the book. It feels unfinished and made me think I'd wasted my time and money reading this. it was all going along quite grippingly too.

worst ending ever

liked the plot of this book although a bit far fetched.. the narrator was excellent easy to listen to totally disapointed in the ending though far too many loose ends ...the author could easily have written another couple of chapters

Great story, well told

I couldn’t wait for my next journey in the car to listen to this book, and when I got home I found myself sitting in the car, to finish the chapter.

It’s well written and very suspenseful.

A cliffhanger?

Well written, supported by factual detail sufficient to convince me, at a pace that never falters. The narration is well delivered, too. I really enjoyed it.

I do not wish to spoil the ending for anyone who has yet to hear it, so let’s just say that a sequel beckons .

Incomplete

This is obviously an incomplete recording. It needs to be fixed. Do not download it until the problem is resolved. Some readers were obviously wondering why the book finished in the middle of nowhere. I am sure it does not.

Not Ken Follett's Best Work

I have absolutely adored all the Ken Follet books that I have read so far, The Century and Kingsbridge trilogies are some of the best books I have ever read, but this one just didn't cut it for me. The storyline was ok, the narration was a little irritating but I did get used to it eventually. I would say if you wanted an easy beach read then this one will do but there are countless Ken Follet books that are far better.
