Ken Follett

Ken Follett est né à Cardiff, au Pays de Galles. D'abord reporter, il dirige ensuite sa propre maison d'édition. En 1978, il écrit «L'Arme à l'œil», un thriller original qui rencontre immédiatement le succès. Depuis, il se consacre entièrement à l'écriture. Outre les romans d'espionnage comme «Le Réseau Corneille» ou «Le Vol du frelon», Ken Follett a signé des fresques historiques telles que «Les Piliers de la Terre», «La Marque de Windfield», «Le Pays de la liberté» et des romans brûlants d'actualité comme «Le Troisième Jumeau», qui nous plonge au cœur des manœuvres inavouables liées aux découvertes de la génétique. Ses romans sont traduits dans plus de vingt langues, et six d'entre eux ont été portés à l'écran.
