Publisher's Summary

Tightly written thrillers like The Marching Season have made best-selling novelist Daniel Silva a favorite of readers everywhere. In The Kill Artist, he paints an absorbing portrait of a reluctant hero’s attempt to thwart an old enemy to preserve a precarious peace.

After the assassination of his wife and son, Gabriel Allon retires from his brutal anti-terrorist career and loses himself in his previous cover job: art restoration. But when Tariq al-Hourani, the Palestinian terrorist responsible for his family’s death, begins a killing spree designed to destroy Middle East peace talks, Gabriel once again slips into the shadowy world of international intrigue. In a global game of hide-and-seek, the motives of Gabriel and Tariq soon become more personal than political.

Filled with vivid action and a fascinating cast of supporting characters, The Kill Artist delivers pulse-pounding suspense, carried to a startling climax by the tension-packed narration of George Guidall.

    "good story, excellent reader, crap editor"

    the reader was great, the story good but for some bizarre reason on scene changes the first word or 2 was cut off and the narration faded into. Totally bloody annoying.

    "Pretty bad spy"
    Any additional comments?

    I am an immature spy book reader. So far I have read all of John Rain ( pretty good ) , some of Dewey Andreas (Decent) and all of Mitch Rapp ( loved it ). But Gabriel Allon? He was pretty poor spy/superhero... I am amazed that he has survived this long. I think he should stick to the arts restorations.

    "waste of time way to many descriptions"

    terrible book way to many descriptions we don't need a full description of what people look like and what they are wearing if I hadn't paid for the book I wouldn't have finished it!

    "Good twists"

    This was interesting. It had good twists and turns but a little drawn out in places. I will probably pick out the next one in the series....

    "Enjoyed!"

    It seemed a typical spy story, however, it didn't have enough twist. The narration was excellent.

    Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.

    "Fascinating Look Inside Palestinian Israeli Hatred"

    Art restorer, Gabriel Allon has left the fight against terrorists out to destroy Israel and is trying to live a peaceful life . . . until the man responsible for killing his family returns on the scene, and Gabriel is called back into action . . . the history of the Israeli Palestinian conflict is described in detail, and is very interesting to listen to . . . some reviewers find it to be skewed, I did not . . . the language and sex involved in the undercover work are not appealing, but to be expected . . . nobody comes out "clean" in the end . . . although Gabriel comes out on top, the resolution is nothing anyone would have expected . . .

    "A book seeking its path"

    I enjoyed the story however the main character is a contrast in development. You are expecting this strong, can see through anything type. What you get is something less than that. I felt he as under developed. Given this is the first entry in a long running series, I am left to think there is s lot more development coming down the line. Still, entertaining.
