The Unlikely Spy by Daniel Silva, Roger Rees

The time is 1943, London. Professor Alfred Vicary, a mild mannered academic, friend of Churchill, is drafted into M15 to help break the most horrifying intelligence case of World War II—the existence of a Nazi spy ring in England that is ferreting out the secret of the D-Day invasion. Vicary's "opponent" is Catherine Blake, a beautiful, perfect young Brit, a volunteer in the emergency wards during the Blitz, a heartbreaker—and deep German mole, a trained assassin and a determined killer. Their game of cat and mouse, with the success of the European invasion at stake—is the riveting saga of The Unlikely Spy.

Having read all of Silva's other books, I thought I should go back and read his first one. At a recent book-signing he said it was his favorite one so I thought I'd give it a shot. The story is great and the characters are very interesting. The only gripe I have is that it seemed like on every other page another character was introduced and it was a bit confusing at first to figure out who was who. 'I would've liked a 'cast of characters' page to help out. Yet, once I got into the story it was excellent. If you decide to read it, give it a bit before giving gets easier as it goes along.

I read a lot of espionnage and really enjoyed this one. Of course, we all know how the war turned out, so you have to make the bad guys have some redeeming qualities or it would be a history book. The people who only rated this one or two stars just don't get it!

This is a great story but too many characters. The only thing I don't like about books set in other countries is that some of the terms or language is not familiar. Other than that I was interested to read what happens. As with a lot of books, the preview turns out to be better than some of the following story which tends to drag a bit but then sgets better again the further into the story you get. I wish he had done more with the american story line as those characters seemed relateable and interesting to me.

This was my first read by Daniel Silva,and it wont be my last.He had me 'hooked',from the first page.The characters are interesting .there is good plots ,and some sex also.I think Mr Silva is way better than Ken Follett!

Having not read Silva's first book until now, I found this one very detailed with some characters exceptionally complex . A plausible story written within the historical matrix.

This was a fantastic book. I loved the fact that we learned about the spy networks of both the allies and the Nazis. It was fascinating and exciting. Wonderful book.

This book was excellent. It was a thriller from the beginning to end. If you like spy novels, you will love this one. I didn't want the book to end. I didn't want to see Catherine Blake captured, because although she was a killer, she was described as a beautiful woman. This was my first book by Daniel Silva, but it won't be my last. He is a great author!.

Very good spy book. I have read many that have followed this one by Daniel Silva.  I like the premise of the hero Gabriel Allon being a master painting restorer and artist at heart, but strictly impassionate when called to duty. The book held me and was suspenseful.

Found this book a bit tedious. If this had been the first one of his I'd read I might not have tried him again . Have enjoyed all his other books very much.
