    Six months after the blood-soaked conclusion of Moscow Rules, Allon is in Umbria, trying to resume his honeymoon with his new wife, Chiara, when a colleague pays him a shocking visit. The man who saved Allon's life in Moscow and was then resettled in England has vanished without a trace. British intelligence is sure he was a double agent all along, and they blame Allon for planting him.

    "Great story, poor pronunciation by narrator"
    Overall

    Thought the book was great, but the mispronunciation, particularly of Hebrew names and terms detracted significantly from the enjoyment of the book. Even English and Russian proper names are mispronounced: "Grosvenor" pronounced "Grows-venor"

    This narrator reads several of Mr. Silva's books. Why is this poor pronunciation of Israeli & Hebrew names, in particular, allowed over several audiobooks? Surely somebody can provide a pronunciation guide for the narrator.

    Having said that, I thought the variety of the male characters voices was quite good. The exceptions were some of the women's voices. Chiara was made to sound like quite a whiner.

    With corrected pronunciation, I'm sure the narrator can do a much better (and more easily listened to) job next time.

    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?
