Gabriel Allon, art restorer and spy, is about to face the greatest challenge of his life.
Allon is recovering from his grueling showdown with a Palestinian master terrorist, when terrorism comes to find him once again. 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, straight at the heart of the Vatican.
Allon warns his old friend Monsignor Luigi Donati, the pope’s private secretary, and rushes to Rome to assist in security, but what neither he nor Donati knows is that the Vatican has been thoroughly penetrated. An extraordinary enemy walks among them...and he’s just getting started.
In the days and weeks to come, Allon and his colleagues will 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 simply 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.

Gabriel Allon, master art restorer and master spy, is recalled to action by his masters in the Israeli intelligence establishment. They have uncovered a plot by al-Queda to assassinate the Pope, and that's only for starters. Christopher Lane keeps all the balls in the air in this labyrinthine plot involving infiltration of the Swiss Guards, the American President, truckloads of evil Saudis, every known intelligence agency in the Western world, and security agencies galore. All the ingredients are stirred vigorously and frequently, and Lane handles it all beautifully. He offers several languages and many varieties of accented English with admirable clarity. And his pacing serves to keep listeners in continual suspense. R.E.K. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
