A Death in Cornwall is written by Daniel Silva.
The title is Book #24 in Daniel Silva’s acclaimed Gabriel Allon series.
Art restorer and legendary spy Gabriel Allon attends a reception at the Coartauld Gallery
in London celebrating the return of a stolen self-portrait by Vincent Van Gogh.
When an old friend from the Devon and Cornwall Police seeks his help with a murder investigation, he finds himself pursuing a powerful and dangerous new adversary.

Another - this is Book #24 of Daniel Silva’s Gabriel Allon series - perfectly crafted thriller.
There is a lot of talk about art (of course) and art restoration. A lot of travel, new and old locations. Very fast-paced.
I welcomed ‘seeing’ Ingrid again and especially Timothy Peel, currently with the Devon & Cornwall Police.
A lot of very complex tech equipment.
Every book I have read, written by Daniel Silva has been excellent. I can’t put them down once I have started to read. Absolute perfection. *****
