This is my 2nd book of his, and it was really good! I could not put it down. I have never been a fan of books that include a lot of actual history (I find it boring) but he has a way of making it interesting. Highly recommend.

This is yet another high class Allon tale and Silva, more so than usual, goes to great lengths to provide historical justification and motivation for his characters' actions. Silva has no problems with having his hero outsmarted by the bad guys but still being able to do the best with the hand he's dealt.

Good storyline

Gabriel Allon is feeling the effects of his years of service and faces conflict between his personal and professional life. There is a sense of a changing of the guard in the not too distant future.

A good offering from Silva, Allon is the best spy character ever developed in fiction.

Well paced and interesting but not his most innovative plot. It ties up previous plot lines and sets a foundation for upcoming novels. Too bad it is so rushed at the end and formulaic, as suggested by rahmmie below.

I enjoyed this story in the continuing saga of Gabriel Alon, an Israeli secret service agent/art restorer with a conscience. In this episode, Alon looks back in history to find the mastermind behind several terrorist attacks in Europe.

The ending seemed almost rushed, a bit anticlimatic after the rest of the book, but overall it was entertaining
