Characters Portrait of a Spy

Haunted by his failure to stop a suicide bomber in London Gabriel Allon is summoned to Washington and drawn into a confrontation with the new face of global terror At the center of the threat is an American born cleric in Yemen who was once a paid CIA assetGabriel and his team devise a daring plan to destroy the network of death from the inside a gambit fraught with risk both. This is another spy novel in the Gabriel Allon series It is excellent like all the others in the series My only complaint is that it is starting to feel a little repetitious Here again Allon sends a willing female into the lion s den of a known terrorist The purpose is to make an identification of the terrorist mastermind in order to ensure that the correct person is assassinated Here the terrorist uses some of the same confusion causing tactics as in at least one of the other books One of the most attractive aspects of this book as in the others in the series is Gabriel Allon s skill in restoring old paintings He is a master at this and there are scenes in which he interacts with art dealers art auctions and the canvas Another interesting aspect is the spy s interactions with the spy agencies of the US and the UK They depend on one another and a great deal of bargaining goes into their cooperation Moreover bigger is not always betterThe action is slow in this book but that should not deter anyone from reading it The characters are true to life The story is engaging and the story telling is top notch

I read the first Gabriel Allon installment over a decade ago and maybe one other since then so I was familiar with the main characters and their professions Book 11 is post 911 and its plot is pertinent to our times It is a sturdy and thoughtful book about spy recruitment and one in which characters are studied and exposed through the author s writing The pace is steady the characters are fully developed and the plot gives insight into the world wide cooperation of combating terrorist activity I immensely enjoyed this audible book

The corridors of power in Washington to the glamorous auction houses of New York and London to the unforgiving landscape of the Saudi desert Featuring a climax that will leave listeners haunted long after the final words this deeply entertaining story is also a breathtaking portrait of courage in the face of unspeakable evil and Daniel Silva's most extraordinary novel to date. I am resuming reading Gabriel Allon after a break where I was reading only indie authors for a month What a relief to come back to something familiar and well written The story is similar to its predecessors and the beats are the same But the book is so much fun that you never get bored
