Description

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...

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 04, 2000 – The tragedy of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and despair of its resolution provide the backdrop for Silva's (The Unlikely Spy) heart-stopping, complex yarn of international terrorism and intrigue. Israeli master spy Ari Shamron sets an intricate plot in motion to lure deadly Palestinian assassin Tariq al-Hourani into his net. Art restorer Gabriel Allon, a former Israeli agent whose family was killed by Tariq, is lured back into the fray by Shamron and teamed with Jacqueline Delacroix, a French supermodel/Israeli secret agent whose grandparents died in the Holocaust. Gabriel sets up in London to monitor Yusef, Tariq's fellow terrorist and confidant. Jacqueline is assigned to seduce him in hopes of intercepting Tariq, who is devising a plan to kill Israel's prime minister during peace talks with Arafat in New YorkDand he has similar plans for Gabriel. The tortuous plot leading the various parties to the showdown in Manhattan is a thrilling roller-coaster ride, keeping readers guessing until the mind-bending conclusion. Sensitive to both sides of the conflict, the narrative manages to walk a political tightrope while examining the motivations of Palestinians and Israelis alike. The duplicity and secret financial juggling to keep government hands clean is personified in publishing mogul Benjamin Stone, who backs the Israeli efforts. He is just one of many larger-than-life characters (both real and invented) thrown into the mixDArafat himself has a tense encounter with Tariq that underscores the volatility of terrorist loyalty. An array of global locales adds to the complexity and authenticity of the dizzying, cinematic plot.

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'm hooked!

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.
