    "A New andIntriguing Twist for an Allon Story"

    A slow start but a story that builds in intensity to a thrilling conclusion. The story is complex and inventive within the broad outlines of Allon's espionage. A half dozen old characters come back and are developed and woven into the story in many intriguing ways. This title and Fallen Angel are even better than all of the prior books I the series.

    "Humor from Gabriel Allon"

    I've read all but two of the Gabriel Allon stories but this one seemed to have much more humor than I have noted before. I enjoyed it and George Guidall did an excellent job of narration.

    "This should be a movie"

    Vivid characterizations and action move this story along. It makes me want to know the characters better and see how they get along in their lives. I highly recommend this audiobook. It is even better the second time around.

    "Fabulous on all fronts"

    Wow! Daniel Silva, you are genius!

    The best of the series so far. Story is amazing; narration is just about perfect; surprises are many. On top of all that, Silva's ability to write awesome dialogue is highlighted in this book.

    I have come to really like Christopher Keller. And the goat is wonderful.
    I don't know how Daniel Silva can keep making his next books better and better but he does. And with THE ENGLISH GIRL he is at the top of his craft.

    Nice ending, too.

    "Fortune teller spoilt it for me"
    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    There is much to enjoy in this further episode in Gabriel's adventures. However, the occult/fortune teller theme is creepy and that is why I am giving it a thumbs down in both my Kindle and Audible libraries. Here's hoping Mr. Silva will write on for many a year, but avoid that kind of theme in the future.

    Story
    "An Exceptional Spy"

    I stumbled upon the Gabriel Allon series, and it quickly became one of my favorite series in a long while. The English Girl is one of the best in the series. It combines international intrigue with politics and scandal, steering clear of predictable outcomes. Without giving away plot points, it deals with the very believable difficulties in investigating a time sensitive crime with serious political implications and high level officials helping or hindering the investigation. How did these criminals find out about the political scandal when no one else knew? Nothing is as it seems. While each of Daniel Silva's books are self-contained enough to be read by anyone looking for a good book, there is a great advantage of reading them in order. Silva rarely discards ingenious or unique characters he introduces into his books. They become part of the Gabriel Allon universe and pop up in future books in unexpected ways (the Pope and a Corsican fortuneteller are some of the more notable reoccurring characters). Silva doesn't give away too much of the action of earlier books, but there are Allon related life events (good and bad) that are referenced that are big plot spoilers if you plan on reading the earlier books in the future. From his striking green eyes to his incredible memory to his insight on espionage and terrorism, Israeli intelligence operative Gabriel Allon is extraordinary in all ways almost to a fault. He is a reluctant assassin with the heart and skills of a painter, haunted by personal tragedy. His talent shines so bright in the series that almost all other reoccurring characters pale in comparison. Unfortunately, Silva nearly cut and pastes his descriptions of some of the characters from book to book, they are so similar. Having been so enamored with the series, I read the majority of them back to back. Some of the characters seem to have so much potential for expansion (notably analyst Dina Sarid) that a stock description is a disappointment. Silva writes that Gabriel's love Chiara has "riotous hair", a remarkable description that catches attention when you first read it, but Silva uses it in multiple books. I'd like to hear more about her. It's hard to balance character development and keep a good pace in a thriller. Therefore, most of the character focus goes deservedly to Gabriel.
