Publisher's Summary

Detective Gabriel Allon returns in this stunning thriller of ancient and modern betrayal, long-buried secrets and unthinkable deeds. In Munich, writer Benjamin Stern enters his flat to find a man leafing through his research. When Stern confronts him, the man shoots him, murmurs a few words in Latin, gathers the papers and leaves. In Venice, art restorer and Israeli agent Gabriel Allon reads a message saying that Stern is dead; can he leave immediately? At the Vatican, a priest named Pietro paces in the garden, pondering the discoveries he has made, the enemies he will make, and the journey he must undertake. Silva weaves these three threads into a multilayered mystery peopled with memorable characters and distinguished by rich prose.

    "FantAstic!!!"

    I thought this book was near perfect in terms of its suspense, its relevancy, it's charActers, its descriptions. I also thought john lee did a great job of simulating Israeli, Italian and German accents. In sum, for most of the reading my husband and I were spellbound.

    "Terrific. Hard to figure out"

    Reader, John Lee, makes the story. Lots of fun. The accents of the reader are fun, and I prefer Audible to Kindle because the names are hard to pronounce

    "Amazing story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    You absolutely cannot believe this story line. It is so fabulous, and yet, as a student of history, his premises are very believable. The story has amazing details without ever being boring. It is incredibly hard to put down.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The details.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    In and out of the Vatican and around Rome


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    You simply cannot deny the plausibility of the plot.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for the next in the series.
