Ken Follet, author of thrillers and historical novels, said it best when he noted the power that a great story can have over a reader. He said, "If they're hoping it will turn out this way, and fearing it will turn out that way, they're going to turn the page." Follet knows what he is talking about, as he was just awarded the Grand Master prize by the Mystery Writers of America, which honors an author’s body of work.
