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.

    "Rewrite history"

    An insult to those thousands of men and women who worked to save so many lives during the holocaust.
    Anti Catholicism in the form of fiction.

    I love to read espionage and criminal thrillers. My lifestyle doesn't allow time to sit and read so audio books is really an enjoyment.

    "Good author, slow moving book"
    Would you try another book from Daniel Silva and/or John Lee?

    Yes. I have listened to all of Silva's books.


    What was most disappointing about Daniel Silva’s story?

    This book, unlike his others, is very slow moving.


    Would you be willing to try another one of John Lee’s performances?

    Of course. John done a great read. The book was the problem.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not especially

    "Narrator needs Hebrew lessons"

    As with all the Gabriel Allon series, "The Confessor" is a good read. Nevertheless I did have to wince at John Lee's pronunciation of Hebrew words. I can understand the slip on kipa with the short "i" sound instead of the "ee", but he repeatedly pronounced Haganah with the accent on the second syllable instead of the third. I even found myself audibly correcting him whenever he said it. Very irritating.
