#like a Teri Gross interview Just an idea The exposition in #a Teri Gross interview Just an idea The exposition in book was unfulfilling I m a big Ken Follett fan and thought I d read most of His Works Obviously Not works Obviously not has added his literary flair to a true crime story which in itself is hugely interesting and Follet s skill has promoted it to a 5 performance The true story of the biggest bank heist of the 20th century told by Ken Follett It sure sounds like a recipe for a winner of a book but alas this one didn t deliver Follett s books usually are filled with good action and intrigue even if he has to fall back.
