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.

Brilliant as you would expect from Ken Follett. If true what a brilliant plot and congratulations to Israel. May they survive forever.

Exciting story

Ken Follett is, as usual, superb... Excellent twists and turns as well as giving an idea of the complication of the Israeli, Arab tensions in the Middle East...
The reading of the story was terrific although it took a short time to "get into" the reading voice...

Normally I'm a big Follett fan

Seemed like a slow long book lacking the normal pace and tension I've come to expect from a Follett thriller. I don't think that this was helped by the very flat narration.

Boring

If this was the first book I had read by the author I wouldn't have read any others. I have read several by the author and this was my least favourite. I got lost a couple of times and nearly gave up at one point. I like my spy thriller books but this fell short.

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.

Brilliant story

The narrator brought to life an amazing number of characters. Each one came to life as it spoke.

Ken Follett has a truly enormous latent. This book was certainly very difficult to put down.

captivating couldn't put it down.

A very exciting portrayal of a confused period in world history.
The story is of a period of conflict which is often overlooked and which explains how things got to where they are now.
