Reviews

Gabriel Allon, Israeli superagent and government-sanctioned assassin comes out of retirement in Italy to repay a debt of honor. A Russian defector who twice saved Allon's life has been kidnapped and returned to Russia by former KGB thug and illegal arms dealer, Ivan Kharkov, who also kidnaps Allon's new bride, Chiara. A gripping tale of bloody vengeance, spycraft, international finance, and politics ensues. Using the ensemble cast from previous novels, Silva (Moscow Rules) takes the reader on a hair-raising ride through London, Italy, and Moscow.Å Verdict Once again, Silva has written a suspenseful novel of espionage, violence, and corruption. His aging Allon is an assassin with a soul. He is tiring of violence; could this be the last Allon novel? One hopes not.

"The perfect book."--Associated Press

"Grips its reader by the throat like a rampant Rottweiler and never, ever lets go...A fabulous thriller."--Daily Mail (UK) "The action roars along, touching down in both glamorous settings and godforsaken outposts...For readers who crave both deft characterization and old-fashioned, spy-novel action."--Booklist "The Defector proves that of those writing spy novels today, Daniel Silva is quite simply the best."--Kansas City Star "A gripping tale of bloody vengeance...An assassin with soul."--Library Journal "Gabriel Allon has been and continues to be one of the most fascinating espionage agents for years in perhaps the best thriller series on the market in the past decade."--Midwest Book Review
