Ken Follett’s The Key to Rebecca took readers and critics by storm when first published more than twenty years ago. Today, it remains one of the best espionage novels ever written. Look out for Ken's newest book, A Column of Fire, available now.

A brilliant and ruthless Nazi master agent is on the loose in Cairo. His mission is to send Rommel’s advancing army the secrets that will unlock the city’s doors. In all of Cairo, only two people can stop him. One is a down-on-his-luck English officer no one will listen to. The other is a vulnerable young Jewish girl. . . .


  • As all Follett’s books, turns and twists.

    OK ending.
  • A very good book.

    There is a lot of action and overall, it is a thrilling experience. There are some rated R moments, so this might not be for the little kids.

    You’d never know this was Follett - pure rubbish.

    I’ve been reading Ken Follett novels for years. My first was Eye of the Needle and I’ve been hooked ever since. The detail, the characters and their development bring you right to heart of the story and the frustrations of war. The Key to Rebecca spoke to the determination of both sides intent on winning the matter the cost.

    Starts out strong but then two thirds through becomes predictable

    A rare masterpiece from a great writer.
  • Pretty Good

    By HistorFicFan
    Not one of my favorite books by Ken Follett, just not as suspenseful and the page turner that I have come to expect. Starts off a little slow. On the positive side characters are well developed, however the ending is very similar to other books. Would not recommend.
  • Always a great story

    Great character development. Interesting piece of WWII. Puts you right in the minds of the main characters. The motivation of the characters is well developed.
