Few recent thriller writers have excited the kind of critical praise that Daniel Silva has, with his novels featuring art restorer and sometime spy Gabriel Allon. Now Allon is back in Venice, when a terrible explosion in Rome leads to a disturbing personal revelation: the existence of a dossier in the hands of terrorists that strips away his secrets, lays bare his history. Hastily recalled home to Israel, drawn once more into the heart of a service he had once forsaken, Gabriel Allon finds himself stalking an elusive master terrorist across a landscape drenched in generations of blood, along a trail that keeps turning in upon itself, until, finally, he can no longer be certain who is stalking whom. And when at last the inevitable showdown comes, it's not Gabriel alone who is threatened with destruction-for it is not his history alone that has been laid bare. A knife-edged thriller of astonishing intricacy and feeling, filled with exhilarating prose, this is Daniel Silva's finest novel yet.

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
