I read this story on my site while simultaneously listening to the Audible version. As such, I can provide comments on all three elements: The Story: I thought this was a great spy story that was expertly woven together with lots of suspense and intrigue. I was fascinated by how all the different characters eventually impacted the main plot.
The ending was not predictable, which I particularly liked. Yes, I knew the good guys would win, but they won in a way that I had not expected. The Writing: In my opinion, Daniel Silva is an excellent writer.
His descriptions sometimes get a little long-winded, but overall he tells a well-paced story with interesting characters. The Narration: George Guidall has a wonderful voice and was a wonderful narrator for this story. However, I thought his voice, tone, and inflection was much better suited for the character Ari Shamron than for the protagonist, Gabriel Allon.
Although not a huge fan of spy novels, I had heard good things about Daniel Silva's Gabriel Allon series and decided to give the first three books a read because I'm always looking for exceptional series to discover.

I'm always intrigued by the loner hero and Allon, an art restorer by trade, sounded like an interesting character to check out. Gabriel Allon was a hard character to get to know inasmuch as his character is so detached and self-punishing for past sins. Puppetmaster Ari Shamron was a favorite character of mine because he has so many layers to plumb. Art dealer Julian Isherwood was a lovable but drunken wastrel. However, the notion a beautiful, high-profile supermodel as an undercover agent was completely unbelievable; she had spent most of her supermodel life snorting coke, bed-hopping, and wound up practically broke.
I found it ironic that Julian would try to compare her as a work of precious art. Nevertheless, I found the basic plot foundation of intrigue, terror, and espionage was very insightful from a historical perspective that has even more meaning in a post world. The story and conclusion resonated enough for me to continue onto the next two books.
If you like graphic violence, explicit sex and foul language this is the perfect book for you. Children cut to pieces and the body parts placed in a circle with the head in the middle.
I have had this book on my shelf for some time now and decided to see for myself if Daniel Silva's Israeli assassin, Gabriel Allon, was as good as I have heard. I can honestly say that Gabriel did not fit into my image of an assassin. As the story begins, a mysterious stranger moves into a old cottage in an isolated English village, Port Navas Cornwall.
The first chapter is told from the viewpoint of Peel, a boy of around 10, who had also recently moved to the village with his mother. Therefore, it takes several chapters to find out the stranger is Gabriel Allon. Gabriel was a world renowned art restorer, the cover job he had in order to hide the fact that he worked for the Israeli intelligence service.
However, he "retired" from the clandestine service nearly 10 years previously when a terrorist he was contracted to take out placed a bomb under his car, killing his son and turning his wife into an empty shell.
After that, Gabriel went into a self imposed exile and immersed himself into restoring paintings in the hope of forgetting the past. Then the Israeli ambassador and his wife are killed by terrorists in Paris, and Ari Shamron, head of the intelligence service, discovers the assassin was none other than Tariq, the Palestinian who destroyed Gabriel's family.
Shamron trusts no one, and secretly goes to England to bring Gabriel back for one more mission. Gabriel can not refuse, even though he knows killing Tariq will not bring his family back. In other novels featuring assassins, they tend to be cold and calculating, justifying their actions by believing the target deserved to die for their transgressions.
Gabriel, however, has flashbacks and feels guilty for what he has done. Benjamin Stone, a wealthy backer of the Israeli operation, describes Gabriel as "an assassin with a conscience. Add in the fact that he has been inactive for nearly 10 years and he was at a distinct disadvantage. I thought the book started out slowly, but it gradually picked up its pace before finally reaching its climax.
But even after the climax, there were more plot twists which tied the story into a neat little ball. Gabriel seemed to enjoy restoring paintings much more than his other line of work. Therefore, this is not the typical testosterone filled prose that one would associate with a story about an assassin, but rather paints a softer, more human side of the occupation. There are several more books in the series, so I am anxious to find out what would bring him out of retirement again.

Our main complaint was the beginning was very confusing and several readers were ready to quit reading the book. Too many characters with little explanation of what their connection to the story was. I encouraged everyone to keep reading and all but one member did. If I had it to do over again I would read this one first and then follow the books in order. See all 1, reviews.
