really liked it
Read in September, 2009

This is, I believe, the 9th book in a series with protagonist Gabriel Allon, who is a Jewish assasin/operative of the Israeli version of the CIA who repairs paintings for the Vatican when he's not on assignment to kill someone. Really, who could make up a character like that but it totally works! These books need to be read in order as Allon's co-workers and family are an important part of each story. You certainly need to read Moscow Rules first as the books have the same main villan, Ivan Kharkow, a large Russian arms dealer. I like the characters and the books are well written. I'd recommend them to anyone who likes international intrigue books that aren't so complicated you need a score card to keep all of the players straight. No need with Silva.
