Follow up to the New York times bestseller The English assassin. Detective Gabriel Allon, art restorer and reluctant Israeli agent, 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.

The best thrillers are those that draw attention to historical realities and leave us with more knowledge and insight. Daniel Silva is one of my favorite authors (others are Jacqueline Winspear, Henning Mankell, Alan Furst, Steve Berry, Don Winslow, but Silva is near the head of the list). John Lee's excellent narration adds to the enjoyment (though Silva's novels all have stellar narrators: George Guidall, John Lee, Simon Vance, and perhaps my favorite, Phil Gigante).
