Its time for Gabriel Allon to retire and for Daniel Silva to create some new characters.
I have been a long time fan of the series, but the last couple of books have been below par.
One man can only save the world and Israel so many times. Gabriel's continued angst
is becoming boring and frankly excruciating.
Nothing< I have just become tired of the series.

Alex Berenson and narrator George Guidall combine for the best John Wells thriller so far.
Its filled with great characters. The least of which is Elliot Schaffer Well's friend and mentor at the CIA. He brings great comic relief to Berenson's dark plot.
Its not often that an author's 7th novel in a series is his best, but in this case it is.
George Guidall's narration is teriffic as usual. He is one of the best along with David Colacci.
If you are already a fan of these books, don't miss this one!!
No thoughts on that.
I have read several of Gregg Hurwitz's books. This is the first one I have not liked.
I found it depressing from start to finish..
I don't really know. It was jusst plain boring>
Some writers get better with time, not John Grisham. He has been very good getting yourattention in the beginning of his novels then disappointing you with a weak ending.He did neither with The Rackateer. It just fell flat. I dont think JD Jackson's performance helped it at all.
I have never been disappointed with any of Philip Margolin's books. Supreme Justice is no exception. BUT, this is the first time I have listened, instead of read one of his books. For the record I listen to about 2 books per month and read as many if not more each month (retired).
The narrator of Supreme Justice is Jonathon Davis who single handedly almost, I say almost ruined a perfectly good thriller. His narrative was slow and lazy in depicting almost every character, male or female. I suspect he was trying to create an atmosphere of suspense, mystery and dread. What he did was make the book slow, boring and plodding. Every character sounded like they were falling asleep. In any event it is a very good thriller and I suggest you read not listen to it.
I am a big fan of Steve Hamilton. His series of thrillers starring ex Detriot cop Alex McKnight set in upper Michigan near the Canadian border were suspenseful well plotted and contained some great dark humor.
I can not say the same for his latest book The Lock Artist. It is incredibly tedious, repetitive and the protaganist is a boring angst ridden teenager, who also happens to be a mute
due to a mysterious childhood trauma.
I don't want to give away any more of the plot, but if you are a fan of Steve Hamilton, I think you will be very disappointed in his latest novel.
He should get back to Alex McKnight and his buddies in Paradise, Michigan.
