Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Silva's series hero, Gabriel Allon, works in the best (if somewhat preposterous) tradition of the gentleman spy who coolly juggles avocations and assassinations. Allon is an art restorer par excellence and a master spy who works for Israel's secret intelligence service. This time out, the art restoration (which generally is the most fascinating and original part of Silva's novels) is glossed over in favor of the search for the killer of a British royal. No sooner have Gabriel and his wife, Chiara (pregnant with twins), discovered a long-lost Caravaggio in sore need of repair, but he's called away to try to determine who masterminded the murder of the former wife of the future king of England aboard her pleasure yacht in the Caribbean. The victim is obviously derived from Princess Diana, but the way that Silva shows us the steps involved in the princess' assassination is truly thrilling. Unfortunately, this bit comes early and is the most gasp-inducing part of the book. Despite this drawback, Silva delivers another involving spy novel as cat-and-mouse game.--Fletcher, Connie Copyright 2015 Booklist"
