Publisher's Summary

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. He 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 begins to suspect 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 realizes that his fate is bound up with that of the rocket that stands ready on launch pad 26B at Cape Canaveral.


What the Critics Say

"Follett returns to his espionage roots with this absorbing, tightly plotted Cold War tale about skullduggery in the early days of the space race." ( Publishers Weekly)

Is it me or the performance is not hype here?

What did you like most about Code to Zero?

The story. All Follet's books have fascinating plots and very good language.

Any additional comments?

I did not like the performance. However, I might be biased because I prefer when a male actor reads a thriller.
