    After narrowly surviving his last operation, Gabriel Allon, the wayward son of Israeli intelligence, has taken refuge behind the walls of the Vatican, where he is restoring one of Caravaggio's greatest masterpieces. But early one morning he is summoned to St. Peter's Basilica by Monsignor Luigi Donati, the all-powerful private secretary to his Holiness Pope Paul VII. The body of a beautiful woman lies broken beneath Michelangelo's magnificent dome.

    What would have made The Fallen Angel better?

    If Silva had provided a more balanced and realistic vision of his Muslim enemies, the story would have been vastly improved. I cringed with every stereotype of Palestinians and winced at what seemed like mere Israeli propaganda justifying attacks on Iran.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Silva's stories and characters are excellent.
