    "If new to Daniel Silva, great book. Otherwise..."

    Nothing was really wrong with the book. I have listened to every Allon book, and they are starting to sound the same with the plots playing out in similar ways. If this is your first in the series, you'll love it. If you are a big Allon fan, you've probably heard this one before.

    "LOVE, LOVE, LOVE - DANIEL SILVA & GABRIEL ALLON!!!"

    I just couldn't put it down, it had me and kept me until the bittersweet end...............The book is fantastic, the writer beyond fantastic. I have been waiting for his next book and it only took me 1 full day to hear it. I hated that it was done and I will have to wait for another, but the ending was bittersweet knowing that I will have to wait for another. The book is just as wonderful as his others. He is a wonderful writer and his characters are so real that you just can't help yourself once you get started you just can't stop.

    "Gabriel's back and better then ever."
    Where does The Heist rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Not sure what you mean by rank.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    It did. What would happen to the girl, I wondered? Would they get to her in time?


    Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favorite?

    Everyone. He's excellent with accents.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Nope.


    Any additional comments?

    None.

    History, historical fiction and mysteries are my faves, but a fan of all genres.

    "Too much rehash from previous books...but good."

    If this is your first Allon book you'll enjoy it. If you have read the whole series, I'm tiring of the same stuff coming up book after book. Its good, exciting but getting to formulaic for me, think Silva is riding his coattails so to speak.

    "One of Silva's best"

    Riveting story, great narration. Seems a bit faster-paced for a Gabriel novel, which makes it that much more thrilling. Many of the same characters from The English Girl appear here, and play more involved roles. Really love this series, and this one is top-notch.
