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....

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.

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.
