About The Book
"The award-winning international bestseller that launched the career of master storyteller Ken Follett.
A special edition of Eye of the Needle by Ken Follett reissued with a bright retro design to celebrate Pan's 70th anniversary.
It is 1944 and weeks before D-Day. The Allies are disguising their invasion plans with a phony armada of ships and planes. Their plan would be ruined if an enemy agent found out . . . and then The Needle - Hitler's prize undercover agent, a cold and professional killer - does just that. Hunted by MI5, he leads a murderous trail across Britain to a waiting U-Boat. But he hasn't planned for a storm-battered island, and the remarkable young woman who lives there.
Eye of the Needle, Ken Follett's breakthrough international bestseller, is a heart-racing, exciting tale about the fate of the war resting in the hands of a master spy, his opponent and a brave woman."
