Publisher's Summary

After narrowly surviving his last operation, Gabriel Allon, the wayward son of Israeli intelligence, has taken refuge behind the walls of the Vatican, where he is restoring one of Caravaggio's greatest masterpieces. But early one morning, he is summoned to St. Peter's Basilica by Monsignor Luigi Donati, the all-powerful private secretary to his Holiness Pope Paul VII. The body of a beautiful woman lies broken beneath Michelangelo's magnificent dome.

The Vatican police suspect suicide, though Gabriel believes otherwise. So, it seems, does Donati. But the monsignor is fearful that a public inquiry might inflict another scandal on the Church, and so he calls upon Gabriel to quietly pursue the truth - with one caveat.

"Rule number one at the Vatican," Donati said. "Don't ask too many questions."

Gabriel learns that the dead woman had uncovered a dangerous secret - a secret that threatens a global criminal enterprise that is looting timeless treasures of antiquity and selling them to the highest bidder. But there is more to this network than just greed. A mysterious operative is plotting an act of sabotage that will plunge the world into a conflict of apocalyptic proportions....

    "Addicted to this story!"

    I can't believe how great these books are! I have learned so much about everything from the world of fine art, the Vatican, and the trauma in the Middle East-equally educational and entertaining!

    "Another great Gabrielle Allon thriller"

    I've listened to this book several times. George Guidall does a fabulous job, as usual and Daniel Silva doesn't disappoint on the story. Definitely worth the read!

    "Wow is all I can say"

    I'm not sure I've enjoyed a book as much as this one. Silva is brilliant and the reader is a genius.

    "Another excellent addition to a great series!"

    If you enjoy fast paced spy thrillers, you will enjoy the Gabriel Allon series. This is another wonderful addition to this remarkable series. These stories have just the right amount of action, character development, and intricate plots.

    "Perfection"

    This is my second time listening to this and what I've noticed is how awesome George Guidall is as the narrator. He is the best! It's been tough listening to the preceding books, knowing how good Guidall is and looking forward to his return to the series.

    Great story. All the regular cast members are there A typically great Gabriel Allon book.

    "Ok"

    Guidall isn't the narrator for Gabriel Allon. It sounds like Mitch Rapp is now working for Israel

    "Love Silva, but formula getting too repetitive"

    The familiarity getting to be more worn out instead of comfy. Time to freshen things up a bit. Love Guidall.

    "another excellent novel by Silva"
    Any additional comments?

    The narrative about the world of art restoration is interesting and informative, set inside a well managed story. It is an education for the reader, who like myself knows little about that world.
