Audio Book Summary

Detective Gabriel Allon returns in this stunning thriller of ancient and modern betrayal, long-buried secrets and unthinkable deeds. In Munich, writer Benjamin Stern enters his flat to find a man leafing through his research. When Stern confronts him, the man shoots him, murmurs a few words in Latin, gathers the papers and leaves. In Venice, art restorer and Israeli agent Gabriel Allon reads a message saying that Stern is dead; can he leave immediately? At the Vatican, a priest named Pietro paces in the garden, pondering the discoveries he has made, the enemies he will make, and the journey he must undertake. Silva weaves these three threads into a multilayered mystery peopled with memorable characters and distinguished by rich prose.

    Again, Gabriel, I love the character. Always glad he gets his guy in the end. I would have liked it more if we would have heard HOW he came to find him in the end.

    I found the book totally engaging. I'm relatively new to Daniel Silva books, but have found all of them captivating.

    Typical Daniel Silva story of Gabiel Allon....described by some as Isreal's Jack Bauer. My favorite series. Too bad it is abridged.

    I generally don't care much for abridged versions of books. I want the whole story. This book managed to keep pace without losing critical depth to the storyline. The story kept my interest throughout.

    Very good listen. Good plot & moved fast. The only fault I find is that the narrator is not very animated. He almost sounds bored.
