    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.

    Story

    Ever have a friend start telling you a story and say "hey, let me give you a little background" ... and 30 minutes later they're still going in circles giving you background that really has nothing to do with nothing? If so, you can relate with my reaction to this book. At any number of points, I wanted to scream "JUST GET TO THE POINT!"

    I'm a pretty sophisticated reader, but this book is painful. The author will spend ten minutes discussing every little detail in scenes that are effectively 20 or 30 seconds of action. I expect this in the first half of any book as the plot is being setup ... but I swear that this author (at least in this book) actually gets MORE detailed as the book unfolds. The plot is great ... the characters are interesting ... the author clearly has talent ... but I'm just not spending any more credits on this author/series.
