Description

A fallen spy
A missing masterpiece
A daring mission
The Heist

Legendary spy and art restorer Gabriel Allon is in Venice repairing an altarpiece by Veronese when he receives an urgent summons from the Italian police. The eccentric London art dealer Julian Isherwood has stumbled upon a chilling murder scene in Lake Como, and is being held as a suspect. To save his friend, Gabriel must track down the real killers and then perform one simple task: find the most famous missing painting in the world.

Sometimes the best way to find a stolen masterpiece is to steal another one. . . .

The dead man is a fallen British spy with a secret: he has been trafficking in stolen artworks and selling them to a mysterious collector. Among those paintings is the world's most iconic missing masterpiece: Caravaggio's glorious Nativity with St. Francis and St. Lawrence.

Gabriel embarks on a daring gambit to recover the Caravaggio and learn the identity of the collector. His search will take him on an exhilarating hunt—from the shimmering boulevards of Paris and London to the gritty criminal underworlds of Marseilles and Corsica, and finally to a small private bank in Austria where a dangerous man stands guard over the ill-gotten wealth of a brutal dictator. At his side is a brave young woman who survived one of the worst massacres of the twentieth century. Now, with Gabriel's help, she will be given a chance to strike a blow against a dynasty that destroyed her family.

Elegant, sophisticated, and entertaining, The Heist is a must-read thriller—a page-turning tale of intrigue that demonstrates once again why Daniel Silva is called a "world-class practitioner of spy fiction" (Washington Post).

Customer Reviews

Better and better

Most authors lose momentum as they write about one character. Not Daniel Silva, and definitely not Gabriel Allon. This book had me savoring every page, hating for it to end. A plot so intriguing and so very current. One of his best so far!

Silva continues his greatness

What an intriguing way to entertwine so many past characters into this masterpiece. Truly my favorite yet...

Stunning...

in its newsworthiness. Delightful in its portrayal of the art world. Intriguing in the world of Israeli/American/British spy triumvirate. Sadness in its mindfulness of Syria/Hama and the death money “games” dictators “play.” Bravo.
