Description

Dark secrets are revealed in Vatican City in this Gabriel Allon thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Daniel Silva.

In Munich, a Jewish scholar is assassinated.  In Venice, Mossad agent and art restorer Gabriel Allon receives the news, puts down his brushes, and leaves immediately.  And at the Vatican, the new pope vows to uncover the truth about the church's response to the Holocaust-while a powerful cardinal plots his next move.

Now, as Allon follows a trail of secrets and unthinkable deeds, the lives of millions are changed forever-and the life of one man becomes expendable...

From the Paperback edition.

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 20, 2003 – "If you think Italians have a long memory, you should spend some time in the Middle East. We're the ones who invented the vendetta, not the Sicilians." So maintains Gabriel Allon, art restorer and Mossad hit man, star of Silva's second thriller series (The Mark of the Assassin, etc.). Gabriel is once again reluctantly dragged from his day job (he's working on a Bellini in Venice) by Israeli spymaster Ari Shamron, who heads a team of sleeper Mossad agents scattered all over the world. This time, it's a revenge mission: one of Shamron's agents (an academic working on an expos about the Vatican's collaboration with the Nazis) has been assassinated. The gunman was working for a secret Vatican society known as Crux Vera. Composed of Roman Curia members and shady rich thugs, this shadow group intends to kill the latest pope to keep him from exposing the Vatican's secret archives. In order to find the gunman (known as "the Leopard," a reclusive European of independent means who hires out his deadly skills to the highest bidder), Gabriel must take up his slain colleague's research, something the Italian and German governments assuredly do not want him to do. Gabriel is hounded all across Europe as he tries to find out the truth about the Nazi collaborators, save the pope and get the Leopard. Silva draws on bizarre WWII secrets uncovered by historians like Susan Zuccotti (whom Silva credits) for his premise. Though the plot sticks close to Silva's well-honed formula, the provocative historical revelations will keep readers enthralled.

One of the best

Excellent book, up to Daniel Silva's very high standard. Enjoyed every page, look forward to the next book.

DBLARCH REVIEW

After reading the Gabriel Allon series (out of order) The Confessor explains a lot of what I missed out on. It introduces Gabriel's future wife and how they met. It explains how Gabriel is such great friends with the Pope. These Daniel Silva stories with Allon are always a fun read. I especially like to check on my Ipad the locations that Silva goes to throughout the world that actually exist. Like all of these Allon stories I'm sad when I've finished but ready for the next one. I suggest reading them in order but it's not necessary as Silva always explains who the characters are. If you like "Bondish" type stories you've got to get into this series!

The Confessor

I have read 11 of Daniel Silva's novels featuring Gabriel Allon.
They were all good reads and well written. This one, The Confessor, stands out as the best. It is beautifully written and the pacing is excellent.
Very exciting book that I read in one day.
