Publisher's Summary

Detective Gabriel Allon returns in this stunning thriller of ancient and modern betrayal, long-buried secrets and unthinkable deeds. In Munich, writer Benjamin Stern enters his flat to find a man leafing through his research. When Stern confronts him, the man shoots him, murmurs a few words in Latin, gathers the papers and leaves. In Venice, art restorer and Israeli agent Gabriel Allon reads a message saying that Stern is dead; can he leave immediately? At the Vatican, a priest named Pietro paces in the garden, pondering the discoveries he has made, the enemies he will make, and the journey he must undertake. Silva weaves these three threads into a multilayered mystery peopled with memorable characters and distinguished by rich prose.

    "Amazing story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    You absolutely cannot believe this story line. It is so fabulous, and yet, as a student of history, his premises are very believable. The story has amazing details without ever being boring. It is incredibly hard to put down.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The details.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    In and out of the Vatican and around Rome


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    You simply cannot deny the plausibility of the plot.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for the next in the series.

    "Favorite so far"

    I have enjoyed the stories about the Israeli assassin and his art restoration avocation. I like the characters and places described. Just enough action to wet my appetite for an adventure story but sufficiently thoughtful, and introspective characters . These are not deep novels they don't provide enormous background of the locations, or characters, but they're nice comfortable easy reads. My favorite thus far.

    "Terrific historically based story"

    With the Vatican's role concerning the Holocaust as the key, this is another great spy story by Silva. Highly recommended.

    Story
    "Riveting thriller"
    What did you love best about The Confessor?

    Fast-paced, lots of intrigue and World War II history, Vatican, Roman Catholic history


    What did you like best about this story?

    Made me want to learn more about the Vatican and how it operates.


    What does John Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is an excellent narrator and his English accent gives the book a touch of class.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No; but it stirred up anger about the Nazis.

    Story
    "Far less intrigue than the typical Silva."

    It's not a bad story at all and John Lee always does a great job with the reading. But, I found it to have no thrill factor at all. No suspense. Little action. Nothing that made me want to switch it on.
