"Ken Follett can't write a bad book, and NEVER is his best. It's terrifying. I defy anyone to put it down..." — Stephen King
“Urgent and fiercely compelling… Never is first-rate entertainment that has something important to say.” — The Washington Post
“In this terrific international thriller… a political chess game between China and the U.S. that could lead to all-out war… This is a powerful, commanding performance from one of the top writers in the genre.”
— Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Ken Follett has never been short of ambition. And it’s the global scope and vast multinational cast that chiefly impress in Never, his return to contemporary storytelling… Bold in scale and meticulously researched, Never makes other international spy novels appear timid, lazy and parochial.”
— The Sunday Times
"I couldn't put it down....terrifying read....masterful detail...It's a stunning thriller and one of the most compelling reads of the year. It's not quite The Godfather, but it comes pretty close."
— Daily Express and Daily Mirror
“A complex, scary thriller that feels too plausible for comfort… On one level, it’s great entertainment; on another, a window into a sobering possibility.”
— Kirkus (starred review)
