    After the assassination of his wife and son, Gabriel Allon retires from his brutal anti-terrorist career and loses himself in his previous cover job: art restoration. But when Tariq al-Hourani, the Palestinian terrorist responsible for his family’s death, begins a killing spree designed to destroy Middle East peace talks, Gabriel once again slips into the shadowy world of international intrigue. In a global game of hide-and-seek, the motives of Gabriel and Tariq soon become more personal than political.

    Jane says: "Felt like things had been done before."
    "My ears bled."

    Story

    I give this book 4 out of 5 on the steaming pile of drek scale. It doesn't get 5 out of 5 because there is a very small chance that this author could have written something worse.
    I have read most of Ludlum and always enjoyed his work. When I want action spy, Vince Flynn does the trick and I have recently discovered Robert Littell and his intricately written spy master books on the CIA and such. I was looking for someone else and landed here and this is the first(and probably only) book I will read/listen to from this author.

    I won't give away the plot, but having a supermodel go to the spa(I jest here) to get her in shape to go undercover and be an assassin for the Mossad and think that this is a good plan is a Saturday Night Live skit. Ridiculous unless the enemy is called Band of Tards. But even BOT might read Vogue in the bathroom or at least look at the pictures. The big reveal at the end of the book destroys the entire premise of the book since it becomes obvious that the lead character was never actually needed in the first place. The problem could have been solved in one page and the book would have been much better. My ears bled this was so bad and unbelievable. Any recommendations on other thriller or spy authors?
