"Silva...writes with the atmospheric grace and whiplash tension of le Carre." (Booklist)
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.
Daniel Silva is fast becoming my favorite author. Gabriel Allyon is the perfect protagonist. I felt like I was in the Vatican Square
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.
In and out of the Vatican and around Rome
You simply cannot deny the plausibility of the plot.
Can't wait for the next in the series.
I have enjoyed the stories about the Israeli assassin and his art restoration avocation. I like the characters and places described. Just enough action to wet my appetite for an adventure story but sufficiently thoughtful, and introspective characters . These are not deep novels they don't provide enormous background of the locations, or characters, but they're nice comfortable easy reads. My favorite thus far.
