It's always fun to read the disparate reviewers of Ken Follett here on Goodreads. Either you like his potboilers,with their elaborate plots and overstated characters, or you find it all too unconvincing and puerile.

Me, I like the guy, and found Night Over Water one of his best.

I enjoy big books with lots of interwoven plotlines, and Follett just has a way of making me sympathize with his characters. I found plenty of suspense and narrative drive to keep me turning the pages. And, while the people occasionally act a little over the top (particularly throwing themselves into sex at odd moments)-- and while the plot seemed to all tie up a little too quickly and neatly -- Well heck, it sure was fun taking the ride.
