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.
Great book, poor audiobook
Distractingly poor narration, with disappointing voicing for characters, occasional mistakes such as (apparently accidentally) switching between a falsetto and a male voice for a female character, the use of a stereotypical Hindu/Indian voice for Arab characters, and one laughable incident of pronouncing MI5 as "em fifteen" instead of "em eye five". I love Silva, but I will avoid this narrator in all future audiobook purchases.
I have been to Paris many times and your description of the train station is fabulous. Great book I have all of them

I love Daniel Silva's ability to blend art with modern political strife and terrorism with justice! Great story and fantastic narration. The entire series is outstanding!
