Publisher's Summary

Gabriel Allon - art restorer, spy, and assassin - returns in a spellbinding new thriller from the number one New York Times best-selling master of intrigue and suspense. When last we encountered Gabriel Allon in Portrait of a Spy, he was pitted in a blood-soaked duel with a deadly network of jihadist terrorists. Now, exposed and war-weary, he has returned to his beloved Rome to restore a Caravaggio masterpiece for the Vatican.

But early one morning Gabriel is summoned by his friend and occasional ally Monsignor Luigi Donati, the all-powerful private secretary to the Pope. The broken body of a beautiful woman lies beneath Michelangelo's magnificent dome. Donati fears a public inquiry will inflict more wounds on an already-damaged Church, so he calls upon Gabriel to use his matchless talents and experience to quietly pursue the truth - was it suicide, or something more sinister?

Gabriel discovers that the woman revealed a dangerous secret that threatens powers beyond the Vatican. And an old enemy plots revenge in the shadows, an unthinkable act of sabotage that will plunge the world into a conflict of apocalyptic proportions. Once again Gabriel must return to the ranks of his old intelligence service - and place himself, and those he holds dear, on the razor's edge of danger.

The most boring book I’ve listened too this year

This is my second Daniel Silva book and I’d have to be pretty low on things to do before I’d go back for more. It was so loosely strung together at times it felt like a series of short stories. I could not have been less interested in listening but I have a compulsion to finish books I start so I had to keep going. My advice would be to steer clear of this one. ‘Portrait of a Spy’ was brilliant but obviously the quality of the writing is not consistent.
