    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?

    It was a good listen but not his best. The story was pretty predicctable. Silva usually writes with greater intrigue. Still enjoyable.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Not really


    Did George Guidall do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I thought he was hard to understand at times. There are better performers than him.


    Any additional comments?

    All Silva fans will enjoy it.

  • The Black Box: Harry Bosch, Book 18

    Story
    (1724)

    In a case that spans 20 years, Harry Bosch links the bullet from a recent crime to a file from 1992, the killing of a young female photographer during the L.A. riots. Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved. Now Bosch's ballistics match indicates that her death was not random violence, but something more personal, and connected to a deeper intrigue. Like an investigator combing through the wreckage after a plane crash, Bosch searches for the "black box", the one piece of evidence that will pull the case together.

    The four dead guards didn’t concern Mitch Rapp as much as the absence of the man they’d been paid to protect. Joe Rickman wasn’t just another foot soldier. For the last eight years Rickman had ran the CIA’s clandestine operations in Afghanistan. It was a murky job that involved working with virtually every disreputable figure in the Islamic Republic. More than a quarter billion dollars in cash had passed through Rickman’s hands during his tenure as the master of black ops and no one with a shred of sense wanted to know the details of how that money had been spent.

    If you could sum up The Last Man in three words, what would they be?

    not his best


    What did you like best about this story?

    A typical Mitch Rapp story. Not as exciting as some of his biiks


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    He has done most of the Nitch Rapp books so his voice is what you nexpect. He switches characaters pretty well


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

    No, not really

In this story, we see John Corey in his early years as an NYPD Detective, before he became involved with the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force.
