Daniel Silva is one of the undisputed masters of the modern espionage novel who has brought “new life to the international thriller” (Newsday). From the first, silva’s books have been instant New York Times bestsellers, and with his fourth, The Kill Artist, he introduced Gabriel Allon, “one of the most fascinating characters in the genre” (Chicago Sun-Times), whose “doubts and humanity raise him head and shoulders above most characters in espionage fiction” (Detroit Free Press).

Gabriel Allon has been hailed as the most compelling creation since “Ian Fleming put down his martini and invented James Bond” (Rocky Mountain News). A man with a deep appreciation for all that is beautiful, Gabriel is also an angel of vengeance, an international operative who will stop at nothing to see justice done. Sometimes he must journey far in search of evil. And sometimes evil comes to him. This master art restorer and retired Israeli intelligence officer once again takes the helm in Silva’s latest searing tale—another thriller of “hypnotic prose, well-drawn characters and non-stop action” (People magazine)—filled with duplicity and terror in which Gabriel finds himself in one of the most beautiful and deadly places: Rome.

As always, Silva explores topical, timely issues through the entertaining medium of a heart-stopping thriller, with a plot marked by twists and turns, careful research, authentic logistics, and expertly drawn, unforgettable characters.
