9780007433353: The Fallen Angel

Daniel Silva is one of the undisputed masters of the modern espionage novel who has brought “new life to the international thriller” (Newsday). From the first, silva’s books have been instant New York Times bestsellers, and with his fourth, The Kill Artist, he introduced Gabriel Allon, “one of the most fascinating characters in the genre” (Chicago Sun-Times), whose “doubts and humanity raise him head and shoulders above most characters in espionage fiction” (Detroit Free Press).

Gabriel Allon has been hailed as the most compelling creation since “Ian Fleming put down his martini and invented James Bond” (Rocky Mountain News). A man with a deep appreciation for all that is beautiful, Gabriel is also an angel of vengeance, an international operative who will stop at nothing to see justice done. Sometimes he must journey far in search of evil. And sometimes evil comes to him. This master art restorer and retired Israeli intelligence officer once again takes the helm in Silva’s latest searing tale another thriller of “hypnotic prose, well-drawn characters and non-stop action” (People magazine) filled with duplicity and terror in which Gabriel finds himself in one of the most beautiful and deadly places: Rome.

As always, Silva explores topical, timely issues through the entertaining medium of a heart-stopping thriller, with a plot marked by twists and turns, careful research, authentic logistics, and expertly drawn, unforgettable characters.

From the Back Cover:

After narrowly surviving his last operation, Gabriel Allon, the wayward son of Israeli intelligence, has taken refuge behind the walls of the Vatican, where he is restoring one of Caravaggio's greatest masterpieces. But early one morning he is summoned to St. Peter's Basilica by Monsignor Luigi Donati, the all-powerful private secretary to His Holiness Pope Paul VII. The body of a beautiful woman lies broken beneath Michelangelo's magnificent dome. The Vatican police suspect suicide, though Gabriel believes otherwise. So, it seems, does Donati. But the monsignor is fearful that a public inquiry might inflict yet another scandal on the Church, and so he calls upon Gabriel to quietly pursue the truth—with one caveat.

"Rule number one at the Vatican," Donati said. "Don't ask too many questions."

Gabriel learns that the dead woman had uncovered a dangerous secret—a secret that threatens a global criminal enterprise that is looting timeless treasures of antiquity and selling them to the highest bidder. But there is more to this network than just greed. A mysterious operative is plotting an act of sabotage that will plunge the world into a conflict of apocalyptic proportions . . .
