Daniel Silva’s “The Fallen Angel” catapulted me on to a high mountain where revered storytellers reach into the stratosphere, collect the sparkling debris of shooting stars, and through some rare and magical process, transform the particles into inexpungible words of enlightenment to rain down on the rest of the world.

The work was interesting and enlightening as to the conflicts surrounding the occupation of Jerusalem and historical aspects relating to the description and destruction of the Temple of Solomon. The depth of the story and character development is what one would expect in a series of twelve works relating to Ggabriel Allon, art restorer and Israeli agent. ( )

Book 12, in the Gabriel Allon series

Mr. Silva has to be one of the finest writers of international intrigue we have these days. His Gabriel Allon series features one of the most memorable and compelling character in contemporary fiction. His adventures have stayed fresh and exciting making each novel more successful than the previous.

With lots of action and interesting political points of view “The Fallen Angel” starts in a classic Gabriel way. He is found back in action taking refuge behind the walls of the Vatican restoring one of Caravaggio’s masterpieces. It opens with a murder in St. Peter’s Basilica and soon the story weaves different topics: art, politics, religions, etc. and also current issues such as the Vatican bank scandals and the threat of nuclear attacks. His investigation takes us on a journey around Europe and Israel. It is clear in the description that Mr. Silva loves the topic of terrorism and is passionate about the Middle East politics and strategy. This thriller provides an exciting plot and a page-turning story hard to put down. Although this is an excellent read it has flaws and this lie in the intensive and relentless attention to details. At the end of the book Mr. Silva highlights where fiction starts and reality falls, a much appreciated note. ( )

Another addition to the series. A very good one. It begins back at the Vatican and goes from there culminating in Jerusalem.
I really enjoyed the additional history that came with this plot. ( )

Another good read. Gabriel tracks a Hezbollah killer after he is asked for help by the Pope's assistant. The museum curator of the Vatican is killed. ( )
