Dark secrets are revealed in Vatican City in this Gabriel Allon thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Daniel Silva.

In Munich, a Jewish scholar is assassinated. In Venice, Mossad agent and art restorer Gabriel Allon receives the news, puts down his brushes, and leaves immediately. And at the Vatican, the new pope vows to uncover the truth about the church’s response to the Holocaust—while a powerful cardinal plots his next move.

Now, as Allon follows a trail of secrets and unthinkable deeds, the lives of millions are changed forever—and the life of one man becomes expendable...

    I started reading the series recently and this is far and away my favorite. Even when the storyline was being developed, Silva had me not wanting to put it down. Twists on top of twists, with a dynamic finish. It is a longer read, but well worth it. Highly recommend.

    Mr Silva's works are masterful. Aside from the attention to detail and suspense, immensely well-written. Best stuff since Robert Ludlum.

    Again, Mr Silva informs excites and entertains, bringing to the reader a page turning novel that it's impossible to put down! Again, the story of the Jewish is told, and for us non-Jews, expands the knowledge of their undeniably horrific history!

    I have read 11 of Daniel Silva's novels featuring Gabriel Allon. They were all good reads and well written. This one, The Confessor, stands out as the best. It is beautifully written and the pacing is excellent. Very exciting book that I read in one day.

    After reading the Gabriel Allon series (out of order) The Confessor explains a lot of what I missed out on. It introduces Gabriel's future wife and how they met. It explains how Gabriel is such great friends with the Pope. These Daniel Silva stories with Allon are always a fun read. I especially like to check on my Ipad the locations that Silva goes to throughout the world that actually exist. Like all of these Allon stories I'm sad when I've finished but ready for the next one. I suggest reading them in order but it's not necessary as Silva always explains who the characters are. If you like "Bondish" type stories you've got to get into this series!
