Historical banking and aristocracy in London.
December 2, 2015
Ken Follett enriched my life and intellect with Pillars of the Earth and his Trilogy (must reads), so I thought I would read some of his earlier books. Wow, he has been a master story-teller for years. A Dangerous Fortune is still a master piece. I can't wait to read more of his earlier works. A Dangerous Fortune takes you to the banking and aristocratic world of London in the late 1800s. Follett fills the story with engaging characters, who spin a complex plot. He seems to have an unerring eye for accurate history - do I dare call his works, 'historical non- fiction'? Reading Follett's translation of history is so interesting and believable.
