I read almost all of this book on a plane ride to California and like all of the previous entries, I loved every word. The Gabriel Allon series is my favorite going, and each novel feels like it is better than the last. I enjoy the recurring characters, and I also enjoy how the story of the characters moves along from one book to the next at a realistic pace. This particular story involves tracking down a kidnapped girl, and the international intrigue and twists and turns make the book classic Daniel Silva. Waiting for the price to drop on the next in the series and I will be caught up. ( )

The pace of the book could have been faster. It was slowed down by Silva's inclusion of historical detail and inane dialogue between Gabriel and Christopher, the English assassin who had tried to kill Gabriel previously. I guess Daniel Silva was trying to create a rounded character but Gabriel comes across as too soft-hearted. ( )

Definitely not my genre. The one-liners were repetitive, the over-explanation of espionage was very noticeable and forced, and the black and white nature of the plot was slightly predictable. ( )

"By way of I deception, my son, thou shalt do war."

Another brilliant, fast paced, thought provoking read in the Gabriel Allon series.. ( )

I am a big fan of this series and this, the 13th and newest, was just as satisfying as the first. I always feel that Daniel Silva must know someone in a very high place to come up with the story lines. This book does make lots of references back to earlier stories. It would be interesting as a stand-alone, but I think it would be better to start with an earlier book if you are new to the series. There were several interesting twists and the ending sets the story up so well for the follow-up. Highly recommended ( )
