From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of House of Spies comes the first novel in the thrilling series featuring legendary assassin Gabriel Allon.
Immersed in the quiet, meticulous life of an art restorer, former Israeli intelligence operative Gabriel Allon keeps his past well behind him. But now he is being called back into the game—and teamed with an agent who hides behind her own mask...as a beautiful fashion model.
Their target: a cunning terrorist on one last killing spree, a Palestinian zealot who played a dark part in Gabriel’s past. And what begins as a manhunt turns into a globe-spanning duel fueled by both political intrigue and deep personal passions...

Not a real page turner
The book is okay. It kept me interested, but it's not the page turners that the Mitch Rapp and Scott Harvath series are. Although it may be more realistic I didn't find it as entertaining. This is the first novel in the series that I have read and will read the next one hoping the series gets better.
I've now read 3 books by Daniel Silva and can't wait for the next one!
Was looking for new Rapp or Harvath
Love vince flynn and brad thor, was looking for next series similar. Silva is better than Lee Child and Ted Bell in my opinion as far as writing styles go... Again, flynn and thor are cream of the crop to me. Only thing i didnt like was Silva's Gabriel Allon see,ed to get beat the whole book. He came out a winner by luck, and not his own luck. I may try the next book in the series as i liked it better than Child and Bell. I hope the future books are Allons backstory and not more about an art restorer forced into spy work past his prime.
