On the trail of a deadly al-Qaeda operative, Gabriel Allon returns in a spellbinding story of deception, power, and revenge by the #1 New York Times bestselling "world-class practitioner of spy fiction" (Washington Post).

Gabriel Allon—art restorer and spy—is about to face the greatest challenge of his life. An al-Qaeda suspect is killed in London, and photographs are found on his computer—photographs that lead Israeli intelligence to suspect that al-Qaeda is planning one of its most audacious attacks ever, aimed straight at the heart of the Vatican. 

Allon and his colleagues soon find themselves in a deadly duel of wits against one of the most dangerous men in the world—a hunt that will take them across Europe to the Caribbean and back. But for them, there may not be enough of anything: enough time, enough facts, enough luck.

All Allon can do is set his trap—and hope that he is not the one caught in it.


  • One of my favorite authors

    By Little momma 1955
    Daniel Silva can do no wrong in my book. I've taken the path to read every title even though I started in the middle. Excellent character development and factually based historical fiction.

    Once again, Silva doesn't disappoint. Gabriel is hero, sexy, passionate and human. Can't wait to read Secret Servant.

    By Kavoinc
    Good final third but way too much blaaa, bla, bla to start.
  • Reused material

    By Tuuppari
    Same old plot, nothing very original in this book. Feels like a forced delivery and lacks creativity. Also too political in an unbalanced way that assumed that readers are somewhat ignorant and unsophisticated.
