    Time to retire Gabriel Allon

    I have read all of Daniel Silva's books and he's terrific - writing in great detail and clearly does lots of research. However this is one episode too far for the character Gabriel Allon. There is nothing new in this story and Mr Silva's stories have become too predictable. There is always a great danger in having one repetitive character as a writer. For starters the reader knows that character will be alive and well for the next book. Mr Silva is far too talented as illustrated by his earlier books to become typecast and predictable. So time to move on and I wouldn't buy any more books featuring Gabriel Allon - besides anything else Gabriel is too old to be a one man James Bond.

    Same O'Same O

    Disappointed. More and more of the writers in this genre are beating a horse to death. This book is repitious of Gabriel Allon's ventures and it is time to kill him off. All of the books are the same.

    major dissapointment

    What a letdown after totally enjoying the books in the Allon series. Slow, turget plot with no sense of place that always highlited the Silva series. Also, far too much invovement in the personalities; most charectors in mystery writting are stock figures and this attempt at 'psychological insight' does no service to his readers. Silva should remember that the major reason people read this genre is for movement and plot twists that pull you in. Sorry, but no reccomendation. Read the latest Peter Robinson mystery instead.
