    From the first Daniel Silva book, The Kill Artist, I have been fascinated with his writing ability. I have read everyone of his works and never been disappointed. I am only disappointed when the book is done and I have to wait for him to write another. I can only hope that the relationships between the Israelis, Americans and British are as good as he portrays them in his novels. The characters are spellbinding, and Gabriel Allon, as a restorer of great art just kicks it up a notch, giving a whole other dimension to his character. I hope to be able to continue to follow Gabriel on his quest for good vs evil in many more books to come.

    Another great adventure with Gabriel and co. A ripping tale of international espionage and cruelty. An Into-the-night page tuner. Excellent tale of valor and nobility.

    An absolutely fascinating story. I am hooked on Daniel's writing. His research is always well done and lends so much to the story. Mr. Silva leads the reader into each chapter in a way that makes one feel a part of the story.

    A very satisfying and thrilling follow-up to Moscow Rules, make sure you have time because you will not be able to put this book down or click the off button on your iPad or Kindle! Simply, a rich treasure of characters with a thrilling and realistic storyline that reflects Silva's excellent grasp of spinning a tale of espionage with a depth only a few current writers in this genre share.
