    Sent to Vienna to authenticate a painting, the art restorer and sometime spy Gabriel Allon is sidetracked by a photograph that throws his world upside-down. Could it really be the face of a man who during the last days of World War II had brutalized his mother on the Death March from Auschwitz?

    Leonard says: "Another Fine Silva Novel"
    "Please learn Italian!"
    Overall

    Contrary to what other reviewers have said about John Lee's "fine" reading, John Lee cannot pronounce the simplest Italian. For instance, he mispronounces, veneto, polizia, trastevere...Given how crucial Italy is to Silva's plots and characters, Lee should take a few basic lessons. And after one or two mistakes shouldn't the editors and producers made the same suggestion?

    Despite how Lee's bad Italian grates on my ear, I still love Silva's books. I've listened to two and will buy others. But if really lame mispronunciations make you shudder, think twice before putting yourself through Lee's botched reading.
