#1 New York Times bestselling author Daniel Silva presents "a first-rate thriller" (Rocky Mountain News) featuring art restorer—and reluctant spy—Gabriel Allon.

After an explosion in Rome destroys the Israeli embassy, Gabriel Allon makes a disturbing discovery—the existence of a dossier in terrorist hands that strips away his secrets, and lays bare his history. Drawn into the heart of a service he’d once forsaken, Allon finds himself stalking a master terrorist across a bloody landscape generations in the making. But soon, Allon will wonder who is stalking whom.

When the final showdown comes, it won’t be Allon alone who is threatened with destruction. For it is not his history alone that has been exposed...


  • The Path to Closure

    By JimboSimboMcLimbo
    It’s 2022 and I’m reading the Gabriel Allon series in order for the first time. This book, The Prince of Fire, is the 6th. I didn’t mind the long backstories and setup in Prince of Fire. I enjoy the quasi-historical motivations of all relevant sides. However, I thought the payoff should have been better. It’s also unpleasant to deal with the emotional roller-coaster presented within the Team Chiara vs. Team Leah narrative. I wish we could pick an interest and move on. Additionally, the story and endings in this series are starting to feel formulaic. Tragedy + Back Story + Operation Setup + Shamron/Lev meddling + Operational Failure + Gabriel beating + Gabriel Escape + Rushed, Unsatisfying Ending = Story Overall a good book, but I’d rank it 5th out of the first 6 in the series- only in front of the first.
  • The worst one yet

    By Yer Mom's "Friend"
    Couldn’t event finish this book it was so bad felt like I was reading a non fiction text on the history of Israel and Palestine most of the time. Hard to read and follow the story line and finally gave up around page 300 so I skipped to the last chapter so I could at least follow the continuing story line to the next book which is hopefully better than this one.
  • Well done

    I'm late to the game with the original titles, so I'm filling in the gaps. Love Gabriel and his story. Thanks Mr. Silva for a compelling group of characters.
  • Great Read!

    Another great book from the author. Allon is one of my all-time favorite spies. Can’t wait to read another of his adventures.

    Excellent as always. Unfortunately we never seem to learn and everything just gets worse. Thank you Mr Silva, and all your sources, for all your hard work and for trying over and over again.

    Good book...another well written Allon story..., but the digital presentation is loaded with strungtogetherwords. No spacing between words, at least two, or three times on a page. Disconcerting. Sloppy work. I'd expect better for the cost.
