    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."

    Oxi says: "I'm hooked..."
    "Not his best but still good."
    Overall

    This is an exciting and thrilling story until you reach the end. As always Silva includes many thoughtful and unpredictable twists. The end of this story was the only thing I didn?t like. In the end things come together way too nicely. It almost seemed like Silva ran up against a deadline so he stopped being creative and just rushed to the end of the story. My recommendation to anyone new to Silva is to listen to his earlier works first. This will help with character background and give you a better idea of how talented Silva's writings can be. To those of you who have followed Gabriel Allon this is worth listening to, but don't expect him to escape death without some unusal help.
