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.

Not a good use of my "pleasure" time. It was too depressing with too much killing.
Something a bit lighter.
Guidall performed, as usual, all characters very well.
Not to me.
If you don't mind lots of meaningless violence, by all means, listen to this book.
I enjoyed the book, the story, and the performance. However, the repeated and unnecessary use of the f-bomb ruined the listen for me. The book and the author came highly recommended, but I was listening with my wife and the language was highly offensive.
I'll watch other reviews, and might possibly try again; but it will be a while.
I just finished the Jack Ryan series from Tom Clancy and Audible suggested this series. I waded through 10 chapters, but it just didn't work for me.
It centers around the Arab-Israeli conflict. It unfolds very slowly and I just didn't like the way it was progressing. If you read the first few chapters of Patriot Games it pulls you right in. This book did not.
The narrator is very talented, but all the characters sound like Anthony Hopkins in Silence of the Lambs.
I'm sure,some folks will like it but not me.
Enjoy all of the twist and turns of the authors writing. His character development is wonderful. I also enjoy all the references to Locations in Israel and around the world.
I was drawn into the adventure. I often have trouble following too complicated plots but Silva did a great job spinning his tale that I followed his dance easily.
I like Gabrielle and Jacqueline characters .
Maybe it was just me, but I had trouble following the story. have to really push myself to finish it. this was a new offer for me and wanted to give it a try. narrator was good.
I Bought this book as part of a two for one sale - it was not a good choice. So much about the storyline is extraordinarily cliched. It's like watching a bad action movie in novel form.
