    Israeli art restorer and occasional secret agent Gabriel Allon has a problem. He finds a prominent Swiss banker dead in front of his Raphael, and he's the prime suspect. After some diplomatic intervention, Allon is freed. However, the banker's daughter tells him that her father's French Impressionist paintings, acquired under dubious circumstances during WWII, have been stolen by the murderers. Once Allon knows about the wartime misdeeds, he is pursued by a shadowy killer known only as "the Englishman."

    What made the experience of listening to The English Assassin the most enjoyable?

    Narration was spot on & enhanced the fast moving action. Voice was enough to keep reader interested & not be put to sleep. Voice added to experience of journey.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Fast paced action, not too many idle moments, intrigue & appropriate finale, leaving wishing for more.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The action through the big cities in Europe was exciting & difficult to believe he survived the chase scene. The intrigue to Zurich to Germany. His female companion added to the excitement as well.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Could not put the book down because you wished to see what happened next.


    Any additional comments?

    The latter part of the novel is loaded with action & later turns into a more typical 'shoot-em-up' espionage chiller. Overall, fans will enjoy the action & the finale.

    Daniel Silva is great & story is one of his best. You might be able to guess what happens @ the end, but a great ride while it lasted. Story line is easy to follow & in the end, evil dies & the good prevail. Almost all of Silva''s books are good & can't go wrong to add to the lists of must read/listen for avid readers. A great spy story & interactions are easy to follow..
