Gabriel Allon is an art restorer and a part-time spy for the Israelis. When Rome is rocked by an explosion, the subsequent investigation reveals that his cover is blown. The terrorists know all about him. Gabriel leads a team of Mossad agents to uncover the terrorists and stop their next mission whatever it is. They have little to go on and only through deductive reasoning uncover the name of the terrorist behind the plot, the grandson of one of the most provocative terrorists known. Unfortunately, he’s using a western name and no one knows who or where he is.
Interesting story and sounds all too real. I was captivated by the hunt for the elusive terrorist. It led from Rome to Israel to Palestine to Paris on a fast-paced gripping thrill ride to uncover the plot before anyone was killed.
The book was published in 2005 but interestingly, it was made into an audiobook in 2004. I don’t know if this is a misprint, but that is how it is on the cover. Guerin Barry performed.
