    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 made the experience of listening to The Fallen Angel the most enjoyable?

    Daniel Silva delivers another riveting story with Gabriel Allon who is one of my two favorite protagonists; the other being Oliver Stone of David Baldacci's Camel Club series.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I didn't like the cadence in George Guidall's delivery. I much prefer John Lee and Simon Vance as narrators.


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

    Wish I had had the time to listen in one sitting, I didn't want to stop.


    Any additional comments?

    Besides GOOD stories in all the Allon novels, Daniel Silva also provides exceptionally fine insights on the nature of global terrorism and Arab-Israeli issues.

    What impulse drove ancient cultures to create sites like Stonehenge, Machu Picchu, and the pyramids at Giza? Why are we so transfixed by their presence today? And what do they reveal about our ancestors-and humanity? The dynamic force of religious belief is responsible for some of the world's most popular and ancient locales.

    Frank Maddox says: "Great course on The Archaeology of Religion"
