    "Gabriel's story takes huge strides"

    Gabriel Allon is finally aging, and finally realizing his human limitations. This story moves him around the board, and promises to change his career and family life. It is a great deal to accomplish in one book. The shows, as usual, an unwilling Gabriel called into action. But somehow he appears more human in this. By teaming up with former enemies who showed themselves to be as good as he was, he improves what the author tantalizingly alludes to as perhaps his last "secret" assassination assignment. All of Silva's books are excellent. It is interesting that he is allowing his protagonist to age and perhaps mellow. It will be interesting to see how far he carries that drift in subsequent books.

    "Best Gabriel Allon novel for me so far"

    Well-paced, understandable (if you read/listen to spy novels, you'll know they can easily become convoluted) plot, and believable characters. Allon was his intense but in-control self, Chiara a bit more involved in this one. A few new characters were introduced, and I hope to see them again in future books. Interesting and for the most part, unpredictable. As usual, George Guidall's narration was perfect. He can read his grocery list to me and I'd probably be riveted.

    Of course - I'm addicted to the Gabriel Allon series.

    "Classiest Assassin"

    Gabriel Allon is the best. I love every Silva book as much as the last. They are all so well written and by now I feel I am part of the team. Hopefully they keep sucking Gabriel back in.

    "Not a favorite in audio"
    Would you try another book from Daniel Silva and/or George Guidall?

    This seems to me that it would be better reading than listening


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I didn't finish it

    "Fairly interesting story....."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes, I would have chosen a different narrator, with a British accent who was able to better impersonate the different accents (mostly Israeli, French and Russians)


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The development of the characters was inadequate to like or dislike anyone. The narrator tone made it all rather boring.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His voice was tired, his intonation off, he was not able to replicate the accents and made a poor attempt at even trying.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    no

    "Wrong Narrator"

    Daniel Silva has gone back to writing a good story - but oh, the narrator was so totally wrong! I found it hard to define Gabriel Allon from the 'baddie's'!! Why or why do you pick a narrator that is not 'clear', that only mumbles or takes a breath mid sentence - very annoying?
    I have all of Daniel Silva's Gabriel Allon audio books and paperback books plus a lot of his other stories and I can tell you George Guidall is NOT the one to read them.
    I suffered George Guidall reading The Fallen Angel but I will think twice if you use the same narrator for future Daniel Silva books!

    "another good book by Daniel Silva"

    I discovered Daniel Silva about a year ago and promptly read everything that was available unabridged. So, I'm a fan!

    I enjoyed what was new in this book, which was a 'buddy' aspect with a new character (love/hate relationship) and the more up-to-date concerns on the world stage. I found some of the old aspects not boring at all, as it gave me that cozy feeling of familiarity and, of course, allows a new reader to have enough background without reading all the books. The narrator, George Guidall is marvellous. He can say "Let's go outside" and it resonates with layers of meaning.

    To me the mark of a good writer is that you enjoy hearing the words no matter what the topic because they are so rich and entertaining. Daniel Silva definitely has that for me. I don't enjoy the violent parts, but for me, they are little enough in his writing that it's manageable. I do believe in the axiom that "People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf". That certainly sums up Gabriel Allon. What is most important to me is that there is a moral centre in a book and there always is with Daniel Silva. Looking forward to Summer 2014 for the next one!

    "Excellent!"

    What a great read. I always look forward to Daniel Silva’s books and this one met the mark. Once again Gabriel Allon is hired to do what no one else can do and he does it with a self-confidence that none of us would have. And as usual, the unique twists and turns within the story keep the reader on the edge of their seat. I have to say that there were so many things that happened that I did not expect, but then I’ve gotten to where I expect the unexpected with Silva’s books. I started this book and went through it at a pretty quick pace, simply because of the entertaining writing. The narrator did an excellent job and listening to him was like listening to an old friend. Always love Daniel Silva’s books and I can’t wait for the next one.

    "Another excellent Gabirel Allon story"

    I am a big fan of Daniel Silva's books. They are a little more quirky than the average spy novel. The main character is not some all-action hero like Mitch Rapp in the Vince Flynn books (although I am a great fan of these stories too). He is a more complex, rounded character but with his own personal demons.

    The story itself is plausible, although some may think it a little far-fetched. I won't reveal any spoilers, but will say that it is a gripping plot with a number of unexpected twists to it.

    The narration is good and up to the usual standards of George Guidell, who remains one of my top narrators.

    Highly recommended.
