Gabriel Allon's nightmares come back to haunt him in this tense thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Daniel Silva.

Art restorer and sometime spy Gabriel Allon is sent to Vienna to discover the truth behind a bombing that killed an old friend, but while there he encounters something that turns his world upside down. It is a face—a face that feels hauntingly familiar, a face that chills him to the bone. 

While desperately searching for answers, Allon will uncover a portrait of evil stretching across sixty years and thousands of lives—and into his own personal nightmares...

    This book continues to reveal the talents of Daniel Silva. His plots are so well done and his character development is superb. I particularly like his knowledge of agent tradecraft and art and how it can be placed in his story. He makes you feel like you are walking down the street of Italy, Austria and Israel with the hero of the book. Best of all he has a hero that can be cold blooded one moment and compassionate the next. That is true in a lot of books, but, in this one our hero move through the changes with class, ease and mystery. This is a super read for a rainy day or an evening with a large mug of coffee. Have a good time with this one.

  • Not one of Silva's best

    By Jimbocino
    I enjoy Silva's Gabriel Allon thrillers because they are generally well-plotted and illuminate a uniquely Israeli perspective on world affairs. But "A Death in Venice" seems like a tired re-tread of Silva's better efforts: the character development is blah, and there is a lot more exposition of (admittedly informative but not very exciting) facts about the Shoah than actual present- day action. I am always happy to take some history with my thrillers, but I prefer a better balance.
