Few recent thriller writers have elicited the kind of critical praise that Daniel Silva has received, with his "provocative and deeply satisfying" (The Miami Herald) novels featuring art restorer and sometime spy Gabriel Allon, "a man whose depth and passion make him one of the most fascinating characters in the genre" (Chicago Sun-Times). Now Allon is back in Venice, when a terrible explosion in Rome leads to a disturbing personal revelation: the existence of a dossier in terrorist hands that strips away his secrets, lays bare his history. Hastily recalled home to Israel, drawn once more into the heart of a service he had once forsaken, Allon finds himself stalking an elusive master terrorist across a landscape drenched with generations of blood, the trail turning on itself until, finally, he can no longer be certain who is stalking whom. And when at last the showdown comes, it will not be Gabriel alone who is threatened with destruction - for it is not his history alone that has been laid bare. A knife-edged thriller of astonishing intricacy and feeling, filled with exhilarating prose, this is Daniel Silva's finest novel yet.

    This is the second book by Daniel Silva that I've listened to. I really enjoyed this book. The pace was good and the continued character development is interesting as you learn a little more each time about the main character.

    I really enjoyed it. Though it had a rough beginning - it sounded like it was written in bullet point format, which made think think I wouldn't get through it. However, that passes and the story unfolds. It's a story of war and sadly it parallels history very closely and is about headlines seen even in todays newspaper. It is sad when humanity doesn't learn from its mistakes. All things considered though I found the characters relateable even though I can't fathome living under that kind of diress.

    Can't wait for the next Allon novel from Mr. Silva! Gabriel Allon is as human as Forsythe's Cal Dexter, yet as nimble and inventive as Ludlum's jason Bourne and Flynn's Mitch Rapp. A very entertaining read!

    It was a good book but not as good as some of Daniel's others. It took took long to get started then it seemed to end quickly. It was interesting though and I did enjoy it.
