Description

Art restorer, assassin, spy—Gabriel Allon returns in The Fallen Angel, another blockbuster espionage thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Daniel Silva. The acclaimed author of Portrait of a Spy, Silva (“a world class practitioner of spy fiction” —Washington Post) is an undisputed master of the genre who has brought “new life to the international thriller” (Newsday).

A breathtaking adventure that races around the globe, The Fallen Angel begins in Rome, where Allon is called upon to investigate a murder at the Vatican, one with disastrous repercussions that could plunge the world into a conflict of apocalyptic proportions. If you haven’t yet been drawn into Daniel Silva’s thrilling universe of intrigue, danger, and exceptional spycraft, start here—and see why the Philadelphia Inqurer declares that, “The enigmatic Gabriel Allon remains one of the most intriguing heroes of any thriller series.”

Customer Reviews

This book rocks

Another page turner. Silva creates a connection between the characters plot and readers

Very well done

Outstanding, again.

You never know where Daniel Silva will take you, but it took me only about 30 pages to once again become totally enthralled with this latest offering. The end could be just a bit more redemptive, but the journey is superb. Once again, outstanding effort from Mr Silva.

Nothing special

I can't recommend this novel. It just isn't up to the standards Silva set with his early books. In fact, this one is just a tired re-hash of the past couple of works. It starts out interesting, a woman falls from the dome of St. Peter's just as Gabriel is restoring an important painting for the Vatican, but this event is just a tease.

Soon, we slowly find ourselves right back where we always find ourselves, Gabriel getting his team together to fight some bad guys. Except thatbthese bad guys are dull.

The gathering of Allon's agents could have been plucked from passages in other Silva thrillers. The writing is virtually the same. It's actually rather tiresome. We read the same old stuff about Gabriel and his wife in Vienna, Gabriel and Chiara fretting about things, and Shamron muttering about life. The descriptions of the members of Gabriel's team are exactly the same.

The story is thin and things happen without much rich story-telling. The villains are thinly developed.

I was a fan of Silva's novels, but this one proves that he needs to go outside his comfort zone and find some new storylines. It's as if he's writing books just to be able to go to Rome or Paris or Tel Aviv or Vienna. Silva goes from A to B to C without much energy and absolutely no suspense.

I didn't like this one at all. It's hugely disappointing. It really is a case of it being too familiar to be exciting. Been there, done that. No surprises anywhere. And the writing isn't sharp at all.
