"A thriller that entertains as well as enlightens." (Orlando Sentinel)
"Superbly crafted thriller." (Publishers Weekly)
Love Daniel Silva and always hate to reach the end of his novels. This was no exception. Great plot with plenty of twists. So well written I would read any of Silva's novels again just to savor his skill.
2nd book is better than the first. Character development is richer. Good research in the points he makes.
I'd heard good things about this series, and was prepared to enjoy it. Of course, I mistakenly started the series with the second book, but was a little bored at first. Then it caught my interest, and I had a hard time turning it off.
Allon is a different kind of hero, an art restorer/Mossad agent/widower. He's also older, in this book he admits to being 50. The book moves from one place to another, one adventure to another, quietly.
I'm currently listening to the first book and enjoying it immensely. I look forward to the rest.
I judge all narrators by Scott Brick. John Lee is good, his voice is pleasing, his accents acceptable to an American who doesn't know accents. He has the right amount of expression to keep me interested.
Absolutely. It is a lot more interesting in listening to a book rather than reading it.
I am obsessed with these spy novels. These are the best that I have ever listened to.
His performance is outstanding. He can change his voice for the different characters.
A masterful spy mystery that you will not be able to put down until the end.
This book ended abruptly. I'm wondering if my download was good as i don't see anyone else complaining. it seems like there were some chapters missing.
This is not greatness, it will not change your life. But it is easy listening and an enjoyable way to see the great cities of Europe.
Sorry I can't say, I have not read the print version.
The revelation of how the Swiss participated in WWII. Wow, as a kid in school I was always taught that neutral meant no involvement but a neutrality to both sides. I guess it depends on what you mean by the word "Is" oops! I'm sorry I mean the word Neutral!
Every character and gender voice was almost perfect. He sways and moves from character to character so smooth that at times you forget that there is only one voice.
Yes the letter that was written to explain and apologize for the stealing of the paintings in the bank vault.
Daniel Silva is good. I mean really good. I love reading his books because I learn so much about the different society's that Gabriel visits.
I also like him because I like how Gabriel Alon comes from a different world perspective than one of my other favorite espionage writers Vince Flynn's "Mitch Rapp" that stems mainly from the American CIA's point of view.
Daniel Silva's Gabriel comes from the Israeli's secret service's point of view which is so intriguing. I love both of these writers that just don't tell a great story they transport you to that story!
GREAT SERIES EACH BOOK GETS BETTER AND BETTER DONT LET THE NARRATOR TURN YOU AWAY ALTHOUGH I LIKE JOHN LEE
Average story made better than average by John Lee's narration. Wonderful vocal intonation and accent delivery! Only problem I have is his pronunciation of "Chelmno." He uses the c-h sound when it's actually pronounced with a hard C. But that could just be a British thing!
