CODE TO ZERO

KEN FOLLETT    Book Number: 87242    Product format: Paperback

A man with no memory and a race for the future. A man wakes up to find himself lying on the ground in a railway station, his mind stripped bare of all recollection. He has no idea how he got there and does not even know his own name. Convinced he is a drunken down and out, it isn't until a newspaper report about a satellite launch catches his eye that he suspects that all is not what it seems. The year is 1958 and America is about to launch its first satellite in a desperate attempt to match the Soviet Sputnik and regain the lead in the space race. As Luke Lucas gradually unravels the mystery of his amnesia, he realises that his fate is bound up with that of the rocket that stands ready on launch pad 26B at Cape Canaveral. Smart and resourceful but no superman, Luke realises his skills are there, skills learned in WWII. As Luke relearns the story of his life, he uncovers long-kept secrets about his wife Elspeth, his best friend Anthony, and Billy, the woman Luke once loved who holds the key to his mind. An intensely credible and moving story which looks at the reasons why some people retrained treasonable allegiance to Stalinism. 459pp in paperback.
