Publisher's Summary

Triple is the story of the most successful espionage coup - and best kept secret - of this century. This taut espionage thriller comes from master of the genre, Ken Follett.

It is 1968. Israeli intelligence has learned that Egypt, with Soviet help, will develop atomic bombs within months - an untimely end for the young nation unless a source of uranium for Israeli bombs can be had in complete secrecy. Impossible, of course, unless someone as improbable as the plan can be found to steal it.

Working alone, Israeli agent Nat Dickstein concocts an ingenious scenario for the biggest and quietest hijacking in history. Against him are the Russian KGB, Egyptian Intelligence and the Arab extremist Fedayeen. With him is a half-English, half-Arab young woman of uncertain allegiance who discovers Dickstein's Achilles heel....

Great spy story with a cringeworthy sexual subplot

The book follows the trend of several of Follett’s novels. Excellent spy story, great characters, seamisly moving back and forward from subject to subject. But it’s let down by a grossly detailed, cringeworthy and near on perverted sexual subplot that threatens to derail the excellent main story. It’s hard to read/listen to the parts of the book that detail the sex acts between the characters - details which have no bearing on the overall story.

Middle of the road...

A summer beach read maybe. I found the story actually quite stretched - too many convenient plot twists and shallow characters. A reasonably entertaining listen but you won’t feel particularly enriched by the experience.

A bit dated

It's hard to point to any one thing but there was an overall dated feel to the story. The story is interesting and the reader did a good job but it felt old fashioned.
