Summary:

She is an iconic member of the British Royal Family, beloved for her beauty and charitable works, resented by her former husband and his mother, the Queen of England. But when a bomb explodes aboard her holiday yacht, British intelligence turns to one man to track down her killer: legendary spy and assassin Gabriel Allon.

Gabriel's target is Eamon Quinn, a master bomb maker and mercenary of death who sells his services to the highest bidder. Fortunately Gabriel does not pursue him alone. At his side is Christopher Keller, a British commando turned professional assassin who knows Quinn's murderous handiwork all too well.

And though he does not realize it, he is stalking an old enemy, a cabal of evil that wants nothing more than to see him dead. Gabriel will find it necessary to oblige them, for when a man is out for vengeance, death has its distinct advantages. . .

    I enjoyed this story and the constant twists and turns. To me it was very believable. The narration was fabulous!

    I picked this book because I really enjoyed The Rembrandt Affair, but this one just didn't work for me. It just seemed to have no sense of direction or plausibility to today's world - even for a spy-thriller type of book. Ireland today is more known for it's friendly corporate tax code than remnants of the IRA. So it just seemed like a strange story-line from start to finish.

    The book kept my attention and was interesting. I enjoyed it ... spy thrillers aren't my favorite books but I enjoyed this one. I had read several other books by Daniel Silva in print and liked them so I felt I would like this one as well. He is an excellent writer and the narration was excellent.
