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.

Caution! No amount of reasonable (or complete) suspension of disbelief will allow you to enjoy this book.

The plot involves a supermodel who goes undercover and under the covers for Israel intelligence. Even though her face is one of the most famous in all of Europe, no one recognizes her while undercover.

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.
