Today we move to North Africa. We are at the beginning of the Second World War, with General Rommel. He advances without truce between British troops conquering all strategic points. An engaging spy story with some thriller’s consequences . It’s “The key to Rebecca”, a novel written by Ken Follet. I’m not a real lover of Follet’s novels, but reading it I really appreciate his huge trilogies of “The Pillars of the Earth “.

By the way, our travel companions are Mr Wolff, an Arab spy, with european origins which is  usual to transmit secret information to the General. Mr. Vandam which has the purpose to unearth the spy and the key to Rebecca code. Not always roles are well-defined, because thriller needs suspence, but it’s a quite intriguing novels. Take time, during a journey to read it!
