I'm pretty sure I read this one years ago but didn't remember the plot, so it doesn't matter. Gabriel is recruited by his friend, London art dealer Julian Isherwood, to recover a stolen Rembrandt portrait that Julian is on the hook for. …

Daniel Silvia is a writer that takes me in a Journey full of suspense, intrigue, passion, Justice, and vengeance all at the same time. Very entertaining. I love his style.

Best of his books I have tried to read, I actually finished this one. Usually his books are overdone and unbelievable, but this is the best of a poor lot.

This was my first Daniel Silva book and it won't be the last. It takes a good writer to be able to tell a story, stay on track and thread and not let language get in the way (think the eminently unreadable show off Harlan Coben). This was…

This was a good read. Think of Dan Brown's books, but with better writing. Some of the exposition is a little clunky, such as one character asking another for details that the first character surely would have known. A satisfying…

Too much history not enough mystery. Silva is beginning to repeat himself (remember Sarah?).

Great plot with lots of action. A little slow at first but quickly picked up. Looking forward to reading more of his work.

Terrific spy novel underpinned by some great art restoration education. Fast paced, well researched and satisfying ending.

Perhaps the best so far in the Allon series.

Daniel Silva brings back our favorite art restorer/spy, Gabriel Allon. Silva does a great job combining history and fiction in this exciting tale.

I really enjoyed this book. It kept me turning the pages. I did find it rather difficult to keep track of all the characters, some with complex names. All in all a great story. I'd recommend keeping a list of characters as you come…

This is my 3rd Gabriel Allon book and it follows the same formula as the others. The base story continues from the Defector, something I like, and fills the gaps to the Portrait of the Spy. I still enjoy the characters and the details of…

Storyline similar to previous book but enjoyable none the less. Original ending.

Too familiar Silva story line but still well done and with some surprising emotion. I assume Gabriel will take Ari's place when the time comes.

Danile Silva's series featuring Gabriel Allon is about as close to a sure thing as it gets. Like others by authors such as Lee Child, Barry Eisler, John Sandford & Dennis Lehane, you feel a closeness & connection to these characters that…

Tense and memorable characters, and an outstanding lead in Gabriel Allon.
