The history behind Gabriel Alon strengthens the Interactions between the characters and keeps him close to his roots. The story is plausible, and involves the usual travel, for which Silva describes vividly. Regional characters are well developed with culture and settings.
The plot stayed ahead of me and offered some surprises. The outcome was not preordained and there were some close calls.
Mr. Guidall does well with the voice of Gabriel though I think that he portrays the old man best. The book was well written, and George Guidall is my favorite reader so his characters are distinctive and the cadence of the reading goes well with the pace of the story.
