Publisher's Summary

After narrowly surviving his last operation, Gabriel Allon, the wayward son of Israeli intelligence, has taken refuge behind the walls of the Vatican, where he is restoring one of Caravaggio's greatest masterpieces. But early one morning, he is summoned to St. Peter's Basilica by Monsignor Luigi Donati, the all-powerful private secretary to his Holiness Pope Paul VII. The body of a beautiful woman lies broken beneath Michelangelo's magnificent dome.

The Vatican police suspect suicide, though Gabriel believes otherwise. So, it seems, does Donati. But the monsignor is fearful that a public inquiry might inflict another scandal on the Church, and so he calls upon Gabriel to quietly pursue the truth - with one caveat.

"Rule number one at the Vatican," Donati said. "Don't ask too many questions."

Gabriel learns that the dead woman had uncovered a dangerous secret - a secret that threatens a global criminal enterprise that is looting timeless treasures of antiquity and selling them to the highest bidder. But there is more to this network than just greed. A mysterious operative is plotting an act of sabotage that will plunge the world into a conflict of apocalyptic proportions....

    "great thriller"

    I really enjoyed listening to this story. the main character was portrayed as a very interesting person with a fascinating life. there are only a few places where it seemed like the plot was unclear. But the entertainment value of listening outweigh those spots. the narration really kept things moving.

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

    "History lessons ..."

    I'm loving these books. I've learned so much and cannot thank the author enough. The narrator doubles the enjoyment of these books.
    The writing and building of characters gets better with every book.

    Story
    "One of my favorite Silva/Gallon novels"

    After reading the first 11 books in this series I was becoming disheartened with the cookie cutter story lines, even though the history and thought- provoking information kept me coming back. This 12th book has a story line that is unique and gripping, while keeping the history of Israel at the forefront.

    "Addicted to this story!"

    I can't believe how great these books are! I have learned so much about everything from the world of fine art, the Vatican, and the trauma in the Middle East-equally educational and entertaining!

    I've listened to this book several times. George Guidall does a fabulous job, as usual and Daniel Silva doesn't disappoint on the story. Definitely worth the read!

    "Another excellent addition to a great series!"

    If you enjoy fast paced spy thrillers, you will enjoy the Gabriel Allon series. This is another wonderful addition to this remarkable series. These stories have just the right amount of action, character development, and intricate plots.
