Publisher's Summary

Daniel Silva and Gabriel Allon return in another blistering, ripped-from-the-headlines thriller. "Another jewel in the bedazzling crown of a spy-fiction master." (Booklist)

She was his best-kept secret....

In an isolated village in the mountains of Andalusia, a mysterious Frenchwoman begins work on a dangerous memoir. It is the story of a man she once loved in the Beirut of old and a child taken from her in treason's name. The woman is the keeper of the Kremlin's most closely guarded secret. Long ago, the KGB inserted a mole into the heart of the West - a mole who stands on the doorstep of ultimate power.

Only one man can unravel the conspiracy: Gabriel Allon, the legendary art restorer and assassin who serves as the chief of Israel's vaunted secret intelligence service. Gabriel has battled the dark forces of the new Russia before, at great personal cost. Now, he and the Russians will engage in a final epic showdown, with the fate of the postwar global order hanging in the balance.

Gabriel is lured into the hunt for the traitor after his most important asset inside Russian intelligence is brutally assassinated while trying to defect in Vienna. His quest for the truth will lead him backward in time, to the 20th century's greatest act of treason and, finally, to a spellbinding climax along the banks of the Potomac River outside Washington that will leave listeners breathless.

"Readers will be enthralled by both the history and the up-to-the-minute plot that Silva spins with such finesse." (Publishers Weekly)

"If you like Jason Bourne and Jack Reacher, get to know Gabriel Allon." (Australian Women's Weekly)

"Allon is a great political operative, but Silva is an even greater writer." (Huffington Post)

"One of fiction'sgreatest spies...Allon remains as compelling as ever." (Kirkus)

Great story with Cold War twists

Great plot and narrative. Thought the presentation was excellent. Skimmed a book re Philby at the same time. Saw how the story developed. Highly recommended .
