    "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.

    "Debonair improbabilities"

    Espionage has never been so suave. Daniel Silva's prose and George Guidall's dulcet tones conspire to frame another good fiction with commentary on the shady side of realpolitic. Fine characters, however improbable, I'm working my way backwards from the excellent Black Widow.

    Nothing better than a entertaining story line that entwines historically true events & the character of humans that influence the outcome.

    Really enjoying the Allon stories but especially the political and historical references. I've learn so much about Israel and their relationship with other entities. Thank you.

    "Another excellent Gabirel Allon story"

    I am a big fan of Daniel Silva's books. They are a little more quirky than the average spy novel. The main character is not some all-action hero like Mitch Rapp in the Vince Flynn books (although I am a great fan of these stories too). He is a more complex, rounded character but with his own personal demons.

    The story itself is plausible, although some may think it a little far-fetched. I won't reveal any spoilers, but will say that it is a gripping plot with a number of unexpected twists to it.

    The narration is good and up to the usual standards of George Guidell, who remains one of my top narrators.

    Highly recommended.
