    I only kept reading this book assuming that my favorite author was saving the excitement for the end. But obviously Daniel is saving it for a later book. This was terribly boring. I’ve read every Daniel Silva book and they keep getting worse and worse. Reading grocery labels is more exciting. Thankfully I still have the early books to reread.
  • A non-stop gem

    There are lots of spy thrillers to read, and I’ve read my share. This book just has a great motor that never stops running from start to finish. A great read

    This Silva book remains true to the characters he has created in Allon books. If you liked Gabriel Allon in the first book, you will not be disappointed with the direction of the storyline, character development, and relevance to current events. Thanks Daniel Silva for writing that never disappoints.

    The best thing @ Dan Silvia’s books is that his extraordinary insight, ability and access enable him to construct the most engaging, fast paced adventures that simultaneously educate the reader as to how the world really works, from global politics to finance to spy craft. I would take a master class with him in a heart beat. His books are eagerly anticipated and always a thrill!

    One of my favorite characters. Although I don’t prefer some of the political statements, I enjoyed the storyline thoroughly.

    If Silva doesn’t want to continue Gabriel Allon stories, then be honest & say so. This was Siva’s worst book yet & will give me pause before buying the next one. Shame!
  • Tedious with detail

    The story line was good but a little too much description in many area. Not enough action sequences.

Inside this vault a collection of painting have been found along with one empty frame which later is determined to be Vincent Van Gogh. Gabriel elects to chase down a lead in Denmark where he makes the acquaintance of a beautiful art thief named Ingrid Johansen. Gabriel soon realizes she is in a class all of her own, a master thief who anything she desires. It’s fun to her. Alot of the money she steals she donates to charities. Working for Gabriel she goes undercover with a Danish billionaire who is also a Russian Assett. She steals a document from a Russian ministers safe that was a plan by the Russians to order a nuclear attack in the Ukraine which actually kills Russian soldiers the Ukraine’s will be blamed and this could also lead to a conflict between Russia and America that start WWIII. A masterfully written tale full of suspense, intrigue and action on every page!!! My highest recommendation!! Enjoyed immensely!!
