It explored many areas from finance to arts and history with intriguing characters. The network of the characters is complex and engrossing.
So what happened in Russia that is often alluded to? Another book I have not listened to, obviously.
Loved the narrator - his portrayal of the characters was completely convincing and the pace just right.
Most likely the exploitation of the victims of the Holocaust.
Yes - see the first comments.
I enjoy listening to great detective mysterie & also great thrillers. I enjoy books also by Vince Flynn, David Baldaci including assasins.
Yes, this is a great mystery. If you are an art lover you will greatly enjoy it.
When Gabriel's wife involved herself in unfolding the mystery.
I love his narration. His narration of all books I have listened to.
The bringing back the character of a kid who was now a young man.
Definitely! A great story with memorable characters and great narration.
Gabriel Allon and Zoey Reed. Both understated and make you want to know more about them.
All of them - Phil's a master. I just enjoyed his 'voices' so much!
The description of the Hershfield family betrayal.
Highly recommend. Slow first chapter and then hang on for the ride!
Very good information about a sad part of our world history, intrigingly formatted in a clever thriller.
I live in a small town. I love Suspense Thrillers, CIA type books, Detective Books. I sometimes listen to some books based on true facts.
I don't usually listen to a book more than once. This was such a different plot. I listen to so many books that sometimes the plots tend to run together But it was nice to have the plot different
Yes it did I would go to bed listening to this book of course I would fall asleep and have to back it up to a chapter I would remember before dropping off to sleep.
When they were captured at the movie preview and were rescused
Yes if I could stay awake. I am one of those people that get sleepy reading or listening to a book
I liked the idea of a book revolving around the old wars and war crimes and the capture of those criminals
Full of surprises
Twisting characters of some people
How he can create different voice signatures of so many charachters
The story of the jewish girl
Entire series is amazing andI wish it'll never end
I would. A broad spectrum of characters and plot-lines to cover multiple likes.
Yes. Silva has the ability to change direction in mid-step...and does so frequently.
I like the voice qualities and the diverse characters he crafts with his voice, volume, and variance.
Covered by blood and blankets of intrigue...
Silva offers a compelling and believable story line with well developed characters.
The poor audio quality makes Gigante sound like and synthesized reader. Gigante does little in his performance to change this impression. He attempts voicing for various characters but it is weak.
The story telling abilities of the author.
I was about halfway through when I thought back to the humble beginnings of the story and how it had gotten to where it was. The story telling in this book is amazing and the way that the author ties everything into each other and keeps things moving is wonderful. In a few years I will listen to it again and find it just as great as it has been this first time.
His voice and accents are clear, rich, and powerful.
This book provides an intriguing story about art wrested from Holocaust victims and a retired Israeli security officer, turned art restorer, who searches for a missing Rembrandt. The author provides enough detail about Holocaust events to provide authenticity to the story. Characters are well drawn as their stories intermingle throughout the book. A good, satisfying listen.
