Gabriel Allon-art restorer, master spy, and sanctioned assassin-returns in Silva’s 11th thriller about terrorism in our violent world. After the murder of an informant in St. Peter’s Basilica, Allon is sent to the newly wealthy but corrupt Moscow to stop arms dealer Ivan Kharkov from selling sophisticated weapons to al-Qaeda. Allon is caught and expelled after some nasty nights in a Russian prison. If the Russians won’t play fair, then it’s up to Allon and the rest of Israel’s intelligence network to do the job. The key to Kharkov is his wife, Elena, who collects the works of a particular American artist, and Allon’s art background enables him to get close to her. This results in an intricate dance that is a masterwork of technology and human foibles. Like all plans, however, Allon’s go awry, and this leads to a tense and exciting conclusion. Some long-running series get tired; Silva’s just improves with each new book. Highly recommended.”

In Silva’s latest international thriller featuring Gabriel Allon, art restorer and sometimes Israeli secret agent, a former KGB colonel turned arms dealer is poised to deliver Russia’s most sophisticated weapons system to al-Qaeda and unleash an unprecedented wave of terrorist attacks—unless Allon can discover the details and derail the plan in time. Silva, a renowned master of suspense, delivers a compelling and fast-paced novel that may be his best yet.”
