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 a story that takes time to develop the characters and it has a very natural flow. A very enjoyable and entertaining read.

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 ending. Wouldn't necessarily rush out to read another in the series, but if I saw other readers posting excellent reviews I'd try another of Silva's books.

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 across them in the story.

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 each book is what draws me in. The pace of the book is fast and I like the how well put together the storyline is. Yes it is a bit fantastic, but fun all the way. Another great and recommended book.
