Historical background with a great story, narrated by an excellent reader.
Gabriel Allon and Ari Shamron
Action drama with great story line.
Can't wait for the next one.
author & web developer
One of Silva's best, for sure. Loved the archaeology. Loved the characters. Loved the plot. Loved the reader. Don't hesitate on this one.
Intriguing action thriller
Yes, multiple suspenseful action sequences.
George uses great voices and inflections making every spy thriller he reads more enjoyable.
Israeli spy thriller combined with interesting insights on Middle East.
A master piece.
All of them. The man can do accents quite well.
Reading the other Daniel Silva books would help, but this can also be read as a stand-alone.
If you like spy/mystery novels, you will love the stories about the former Mossad agent who is also an art restorer. It helps if you also like art since there is always a connection to a piece of art, either real or imagined.
Not the best of the series, but a must if you enjoy the series.
Gabriel, of course
You just grow to love the characters, it always leaves you wanting more.
Interesting, informative, pleasurable
Silva is a great story-teller mixing history with engaging characters and a suspenseful story line.
I no longer live in Worcester. I now live in Brooklyn, NY.
The first part of the book was up to my expectations, but on the whole, this was my least favorite in the series.
The story had me on the edge of my seat on a pretty consistent basis. The story was engaging and pulled you in immediately and held you there till the very end.
The connection between Israel and how the world has looked upon them throughout history.
He gives the characters life and helps you relate to them. He was the perfect fit for this role.
It definitely had me sitting in my car waiting for the last moment before I had to turn it off.
Great spy mystery, if you like the genre you will love this book!
The plots are winding together and some fresh characters are needed. Alion has to be getting tired between restoring the paints, trying to get his wife pregnant, and saving the world.
