Publisher's Summary

Gabriel Allon, master art restorer and assassin, returns in a spellbinding new thriller from No.1 best-selling author Daniel Silva. For all fans of Robert Ludlum.

When a beautiful young British woman vanishes on the island of Corsica, a prime minister’s career is threatened with destruction. And Gabriel Allon, master art restorer, spy, and assassin, is thrust into a game of shadows where nothing is what it seems... and where the only thing more dangerous than his enemies might be the truth....

Critic Reviews

"Allon is the 21st century Bond - elegantly paced, subtle and well-informed." (Daily Mail)
"Sexily brooding Allon... must be the most famous superspy not played by Daniel Craig." (Daily Telegraph)
"In true Bauer fashion, shoot-outs, kidnappings and international terror plots follow Gabriel Allon wherever he goes." (USA Today)

Silva is always solid and does well to focus on plot and build up

I enjoy Silva’s Allon series very much, you know what you’re getting and there is a clear formula he follows with each book. It’s not going to ‘wow’ you with literary gymnastic (but that is not the intention), instead it is deserving of best seller status through its methodical, well researched and energetic story lines. The narrator was enjoyable, nice tone to his voice but all his accents sounded the same to me regardless of if they were Russian, Corsican or Israeli.

A Masterpiece by Silva one of the best books ever

Here's a brilliant story told expertly with characters; read about b4 in other works Exquisitely. It could go on for more chapters.
Silva brings the pages off the book into you're very soul. Don't miss this one EVER!

Gabriel strikes again

I love the Gabriel Allen books and have read many of them including this one. It was also great to have it as an audio book and enjoy it all over again brought to life with voices to add to my perspective of the people
It's great and very enjoyable

Gripping story

Truly gripping story with the panache to carry off the truly incredible. Not the first I have read of this series and certainly not the last. A touch of class!
