The Sunday Times Thriller of the Month
Expertly researched and visionary in scale, international number one best seller Ken Follett’sNever is more than a thriller. It imagines a scenario we all hope never comes true, one that will keep you transfixed until the final moments....
A stolen US army drone.
A shrinking oasis in the Sahara Desert.
A secret stash of deadly chemicals.
Each is a threat to the stability of the world but individually are problems that can be overcome. In the diplomatic arena though, everyone will have a different way of dealing with such a threat. And when those in charge disagree and refuse to back down, it will kick off an international chain reaction with potentially catastrophic consequences: a world edging closer to war....
Now three people must work tirelessly and with the utmost skill to stop that from happening:
A spy working undercover with jihadists.
A brilliant Chinese spymaster.
A US president beleaguered by a populist rival for the next election.
The only question is, in a game of brinksmanship can the inevitable ever be stopped?

For me a good start, nice slow build, but then from Defcon 3 (about 2/3 in) it becomes increasingly predictable. I also found some of the characters were not sufficiently developed for my liking mainly relying on stereotyping. Time was wasted on the romance between the CIA & French agents.
I find it hard to believe that any President of the USA could be so stupid, but then again from what we have seen, maybe? No seriously any President of the USA facing such a situation would have had more dialogue with their Chinese and Russian counterparts, both formally and through back channels given that the latter existed, just as JFK did in the Cuban crisis. Russia was not mentioned once – unbelievable.
Having read the book, I feel the need for a sequel to get closure, but for this to happen it probably needed one or two more characters; one outside the American bunker and another close to the President of China, so it may not happen. A mistake to have left four of the main characters in either Europe or Africa.
I guess I am going to have to accept it for what it was, the feeling of disappointment will fade.
Ps have read all his historical novels and Pillars of the Earth my favourite book ever!
