Although a scion of Hollywood's famed Goldwyn family, Tony Goldwyn has very much made it on his own as producer, director, and actor. As producer he brought us 'A Walk On The Moon' (1999); as director he gave us 'Someone Like You' (2001). His acting credits are extensive with TV appearances running the gamut from 'Frasier' to 'L.A. Law.' He voiced the title character for Disney's 'Tarzan.' All who heard know he is a voice performer par excellence, and this is evidenced once again in his reading of Silva's latest. International suspense is Daniel Silva's milieu, and strongly imagined characters only one of his strengths. He has been compared to the masterful John le Carre, and rightly so. 'A Death In Vienna' is related to two of his earlier works, 'The English Assassin' and 'The Confessor.' For pure pleasure and a greater appreciation read or listen to all three. This time out an art restorer who doubles as a spy, Gabriel Allon, is summoned to Vienna where an old friend has died in a bombing. His task is to ferret out the truth behind this death. As clues lead to a man now living in Vienna, the search takes on new meaning for Allon as he reads his mother's account of her days in a concentration camp: 'I will not tell all the things I saw. I cannot. I owe this much to the dead.' - Testimony of Irene Allon, March 19, 1957. Not only may this man be responsible for his friend's death, but may also have tried to kill Allon's mother. Shadows of the Holocaust fall on this elegantly wrought tale of suspense.

I'm very disappointed that he didn't spend more time developing this book. Great history lesson but the characters were confusing me. Of course I immediately opened the next in his series.

The Gabriel Allon series is excellently written. Despite disclaimer that events are fictional, unfortunately they are close to the truth, and reflect in many aspects exactly what the "Islamic" world thinks and believes about the west.

The beuty of Silva's stories is that they don't have a warm, fuzzy ending. The conclusions reflect real life and are more of a compromise. They are eye opening. I did not realize the extent of the atrocities committed during the holocaust and the blind eye the rest of the world turned to the Jews even after he war. Well worth reading.

I have always loved the books by Daniel Silva but he outdid himself with A DEATH IN VIENNA. I love the characters and they did not let me down. It is so hard to find a good 'spy thriller' and this author never lets you down.

When he is not restoring art, Israeli Gabriel Allon works as an espionage agent for his country. He is sent to Vienna to investigate the bombing of the Wartime Claims and Inquiries Bureau run by Eli Lavon. Gabriel learns that Eli was trying to prove that wealthy businessman Ludwig Vogel was an SS officer at Auschwitz. Vogel is spending millions to get the Austrian National Party candidate elected as chancellor.............................. When Gabriel is kicked out of Austria, he travels to Israel and with the information he accumulated. People working on the Holocaust believe that Vogel is actually Erich Radek, a monster responsible for the killings of thousands of Jews. Gabriel recognizes a picture of Radek because he is in one of his mother¿s paintings. He did something terrible to her as they were evacuating Auschwitz in 1945 and for Gabriel this case has become very personal. An organization that has international tentacles wants Gabriel to stop investigating and they hire the infamous hitman the Clockmaker to kill him before he exposes secrets that the group wants to stay buried........................... A DEATH TO VIENNA is an exciting espionage thriller that will appeal to fans of John de Carre, Tom Clancy and Clive Cussler. The action is non-stop but the author does not neglect his characters that have a depth rarely seen in a work of this type. Drawing on facts, Daniel Silva portrays a world that would rather forget about the Holocaust or just as bad, believe it never happened. Readers will adore the troubled and vulnerable protagonist who fights in an invisible war against his country¿s enemies......................................... Harriet Klausner

Anything written by Daniel Silva is exciting and beyond a great value in a reading experience. His characters are human and make you want to be friends with them. His stories are fast-paced and exciting. And even tho Gabriel Allon is a spy, Daniel Silva writes in such a way that anyone can easily follow along and understand what's going on and why. Gabriel is one of the most famous characters ever written about and we never want his story to end. The stories are so well written that you have finished the book before you know it. And to say that Daniel Silva is one of the greatest writers of our time, is probably a very big understatement. His writing is fluid and flawless and easy to read. You never have to read a sentence twice. If you haven't already read a Daniel Silva story, you are truly missing out on a great reading experience.

Well written albeit the subject matter sad. Still worth reading so as not to afford sadness caused by evil.
