I read this a long time ago and loved it. I'm now going back through the series.
The story is fantastic. The characters are wonderful. The suspense is palpable. The narrator is less than stellar. I didn't care for his accents at all. But, in spite of that, it's a can't-put-down book.
This is a great book and continues where the last book left off. The only issue is with the audio quality. The recording sounds horrible, the last
2 books have sounded this way. I hope the rest are better quality.
I really like the author and the performances of the series. I am learning a great deal and get entertained on my long commute as well. I never get bored or sleepy, but I do have to say that this one did not rivet me quite like the others. However, I am hooked and will continue with this very enlightening and very well written series.
I really enjoy listening to audiobooks of Daniel Silva's stories in general, they are always really well narrated and make the story come alive.
I can't pick one particular moment - the whole story flows really well and was very exciting.
He does a great job with the nuances of male and female voices and building up the suspense.
This was a great addition to the Gabriel Allon series and well worth every penny.

The terrorists of 9-11 were from Saudi Arabia.
The House of Saud has stuck a bargain with the radicalized mullahs to finance their Sharia Law schools emphasizing strict interpretation of the Koran. Islam mandates that only followers of its teachings are to be tolerated. All others are to be subjugated, enslaved, or annihilated.
Read Mr Joel Rosenberg's series of books related to The 13th Imam for interest and for parallel enlightenment. Mr Rosenberg has a deep compassion for all peoples of the Middle East but serious apocalyptic concerns about the Western world's complete misunderstanding of the teachings of Islam and the belief that Saudi Arabia is our best friend in the Arab world when in fact the House of Saud is the chief financier of World Terror, Inc.
