Ken Follett:
Hammer of Eden (Windsor Selections) - hardcover

1999, ISBN: 0754012859

[SR: 7659264], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780754012856], Large Print, Chivers Press, Chivers Press, Book, [PU: Chivers Press], 1999-07-01, Chivers Press, Ken Follett shook the mystery world with his debut (now classic) novel The Eye of the Needle and now he's shaking the earth again with The Hammer of Eden. Or, at least his bad guys are shaking it. The novel begins with a series of flashbacks while Priest and his girlfriend Star plot to steal a seismic vibrator. Priest, an illiterate street-tough-turned- hippie-guru, is rallying his commune to fight back against the state of California. Living out of time and out of society, the commune grows its own food, makes wine and smokes a lot of dope, but the lives of Priest and his cohorts are about to be destroyed by the construction of a new power plant in their valley. Priest takes his cue from Melanie, a seismologist who joined his commune after being shaken by marital difficulties. With their seismic vibrator and under the code name Hammer of Eden, they plan to rock California with earthquakes until they get a promise of work stoppage. But Judy Maddox is on their case. Daughter of an Irish American cop and a Vietnamese mother, Judy is slight in form though a rising force in the FBI. Office politics have placed her on a ludicrous case involving an earthquake threat, but the more she looks at the Hammer of Eden, the more she is convinced that the threat is for real. Her contact, seismologist Michael Quercus, provides compelling evidence that a major catastrophe is in the offing. From there, the novel becomes a race between Judy and Michael and the increasingly deadly and desperate Priest and his followers. The Hammer of Eden isn't, in the end, as groundbreaking as some of Follett's earlier work; the commune's jump from peace-loving band of hippies to state terrorists happens just a bit too quickly. Nevertheless, Follett's gift for plotting and intrigue keep the cracks in the narrative in check, and the denouement is sure to send tremours through the most sturdy of readers. -- Patrick O'Kelley, Amazon.com, 590756, Contemporary Fiction, 62, Fiction, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books

Ken Follett:
Hammer of Eden - hardcover

ISBN: 0754012859

Hardcover, [EAN: 9780754012856], Chivers Press, Chivers Press, Book, [PU: Chivers Press], Chivers Press, The tension ratchets up quickly in this abridged reading of Ken Follett's thriller. Actor Anthony Heald--a movie (The Client, The Silence of the Lambs) and audiobook (Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil) veteran--uses a breathy, urgent delivery to spin the tale of ecoterrorist cultists and the unlikely heroes who must stop them before they hammer California with a major man-made earthquake. Follett has real contempt for his aging-hippie villains, which Heald gleefully communicates through lines of faux sagacity like, "Money makes you poor" and "Marriage is the greatest infidelity," and by having the head bad guy clear his conscience of a cold-blooded murder by reciting a nursery rhyme.
