Tightly written thrillers like The Marching Season have made best-selling novelist Daniel Silva a favorite of readers everywhere. In The Kill Artist, he paints an absorbing portrait of a reluctant hero’s attempt to thwart an old enemy to preserve a precarious peace.
After the assassination of his wife and son, Gabriel Allon retires from his brutal anti-terrorist career and loses himself in his previous cover job: art restoration. But when Tariq al-Hourani, the Palestinian terrorist responsible for his family’s death, begins a killing spree designed to destroy Middle East peace talks, Gabriel once again slips into the shadowy world of international intrigue. In a global game of hide-and-seek, the motives of Gabriel and Tariq soon become more personal than political.
Filled with vivid action and a fascinating cast of supporting characters, The Kill Artist delivers pulse-pounding suspense, carried to a startling climax by the tension-packed narration of George Guidall.

I have listened to all of the Mitch Rapp series most is narrated by George Guidall he is perfect for this type of book. The story sets up the characters very well. This is a book that ends in a twist that I didn't see coming. If you like the mystery espionage type of books this is a must read. I am looking forward to reading "listening " to the next book in this series.
A complex story full of twists and turns. There is a rivalry of expertise and tricks between the good guys in the bad guys.
I'm in the middle of the book and characters are still being introduced.
Not this author
Good story line

Glad I read this book out of sequence. I really like this series but if I had heard this book first ,I wouldn't have liked some of the characters.
Reading has always been my #1 hobby, even as a child. But becoming an adult meant I didn't have time to read. Then I discovered Audible!
I didn't feel that I got to know the characters. When I listened to it at night it put me right to sleep.
another great story in this series expertly read by George Guidall. I know that a book is great when I sit in the car so I can listen to the end of a chapter
Enjoyable. Have listened to entire Vince Flynn collection. This first Gabriel book wasn't quite as good as Mitch Rapp series. But understand Silva gets better.
The narrator did a super job reading this well written book. Lots of twists and turns. Every detail gets wrapped up in the end. Daniel Silva is one of the best!
The story was just so dry. . . .
No, I turned to this author because of the good reviews and I needed something to replace Vince Flynn. I listened to his first book and I didn't like it but he had really good reviews so I decided to give it another shot with this one. I still wasn't impressed.
He always puts on an outstanding performance.
Disappointment. I was looking for another Vince Flynn or Brad Thor. Sadly disappointed with this one. . .
I suggest listening to a sample first and see how you feel about it before buying. That's what I should have done.
