Edge of Eternity is the sweeping, passionate conclusion to Ken Follett’s extraordinary historical epic series, The Century Trilogy. Throughout the trilogy, Follett has followed the fortunes of five families–American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh–as they make their way through the twentieth century. Now, they come to one of the most tumultuous eras of all: the enormous social, political, and economic turmoil of the 1960s – 1980s, from civil rights, assassinations, mass political movements and Vietnam to the Berlin Wall, the Cuban Missile Crisis, presidential impeachment, revolution–and rock and roll. East German teacher Rebecca Hoffman discovers she’s been spied on by the Stasi for years and commits an impulsive act…George Jakes, the child of a mixed-race couple, bypasses a corporate law career to join Robert F. Kennedy’s Justice Department, and finds himself in the middle of the seminal events of the civil rights battle…Cameron Dewar, the grandson of a senator, jumps at the chance to do some official and unofficial espionage for a cause he believes in…Dimka Dvorkin, a young aide to Nikita Khrushchev, becomes a prime agent both for good and for ill as the United States and the Soviet Union race to the brink of nuclear war, while his twin sister, Tania, carves out a role that will take her from Moscow to Cuba to Prague to Warsaw–and into history. As always, the historical background is brilliantly researched, the action fast-moving, and the characters rich in nuance and emotion. With the hand of a master, Follett brings us into a world we thought we knew but will never seem the same again.
