That God for Guidall

The writing is very good and since the publisher got wise and brought back George Guidall I can highly recommend this book.
My advice: skip the books in the series that don't use Guidall as the narrator.

Another of Daniel Silva's best spy novels.

The English Girl is lucky #13, released in 2013, in the Gabriel Allon series. As another reviewer notes Gabriel Allon is getting older (nearing age 50) and noticeably slowing down. An young English woman has gone missing on the Mediterranean island of Corsica and Allon is grudgingly drawn back into his career in Israeli intelligence. Suspense builds as plot twists demonstrate again and again that nothing is as it seems. George Guidall narrates superbly.

A reminder: Novel #17 in the Allon series titled House of Spies will be released on July 11, 2017.

Difficult to follow while driving.

My wife had no trouble following the plot, but I kept getting getting utterly lost in all the characters and misc details that seemed to have little to do with the plot. The narrator seems to have not enough different voices to identify each character distinctly.

Favorite Gabriel Allon novel so far

I've listened to the Gabriel Allon series since book one. This has been my favorite by far. While enjoying others, this one just had a story and cast of characters that I devoured in a matter of days.

Long time Silva reader, first time w/ Audible

Despite being a big Daniel Silva fan, he'd gotten into a bit of a pattern with: Big Incident Occurs, Gabriel pulled out of retirement, Female asset in peril, the team saves the day (though always a fun ride). He charts a bit of a different path here, particularly with a "buddy cop show" dynamic with a character from an earlier book, that is enjoyable (no spoilers). The intensity and fun is sky high as ever, and as always, has chilling parallels to today's headlines.

I was nervous about the narration having read a ton of Silva's books but never w/ Audible. Overall, it was pretty good. The voices used by the narrator were largely good, and didn't really deviate from what I'd imagined. The only exception was the returning character referenced earlier, which the narrator made an absolute hot mess of.

Overall, if you like this genre, Silva is absolutely top notch. They're enjoyable reads, and I always find myself learning something. And if you're a reader taking the Audible plunge, it didn't detract from it one bit.

Excellent story. Much less predicable.

The past few Silva books have somewhat formulaic. This one was unpredictable and fresh. I loved it

Daniel Silva never disappoints.

And neither does Gabriel Allon...except, that is, when you come to the end of the novel and realize you don't have another one to immediately start. Can't wait for the next one. Really makes one wish/hope that the "Office" is populated by real life agents like Gabriel and crew. As to Mr.Guidall's performance - it's hard to believe that all the characters are the product of one man's voice. He makes every character come alive with a distinct voice and personality.
