Publisher's Summary

From the number one New York Times best-selling author of The Black Widow comes the thrilling new summer blockbuster featuring legendary spy, assassin and art restorer Gabriel Allon.

Allon is back and out for revenge - determined to hunt down the world's most dangerous terrorist, a shadowy ISIS mastermind known only as Saladin.

Four months after the deadliest attack on the American homeland since 9/11, terrorists leave a trail of carnage through London's West End. The attack is a brilliant feat of planning and secrecy, but with one loose thread: the French-Moroccan street criminal and ISIS operative who supplied the combat assault rifles.

The thread leads Gabriel Allon and his team to the south of France and to the doorstep of Jean-Luc Martel and Olivia Watson. A beautiful former fashion model, Olivia pretends not to know that the true source of Martel's enormous wealth is drugs. And Martel, likewise, turns a blind eye to the fact he is doing business with a man whose objective is the very destruction of the West. Together, under Gabriel's skilled hand, they will become an unlikely pair of heroes in the global war on terror.

Close quarters

Strong dramatic storyline so close to current times. My attention was held throughout. George Guidall did an excellent job in the storytelling with a unique accent. It had a nuance of the Swedish lilt to it but overall an uncommon accent in the Audible books listeners experience I think.

Another top tier effort from Daniel Silva

Another top tier effort from Daniel Silva, ably assisted by narrator George Guidall. The kind of story we've come to expect from this team, with attention to descriptive detail and full of mystery and intrigue, all delivered with first class narration.

Really enjoyable!

This was my first Daniel Silva book and I really enjoyed it. I wasn't concentrating in some parts and had to go back because I missed some of the players and was confused at what was going on, and that is what made it so enjoyable. The story was intricate, involved and elaborate.
A really good read that I can recommend

Great story

The story was superb, took a little time to get used to the narrator's unusual pitch. But the excitement of the story won out
