Extraordinarily detailed action adventure might best describe this book. It isn’t a spy novel as much as a tale of two assassins and an exploration of the Holocaust.
The Kill Artist and The Heist and finally The Mark of the Assassin read way back in 2009 all illustrate the style of Silva as well as the character Gabriel Allon, an Israeli assassin. This book holds true to the style and as the others keeps you on the knife edge of frustration in your inability to turn the pages fast enough to determine what the heck is going to happen next.
and Catholic Church are not shown in a flatteringly light in this book. History seems to indicate that the premise of
the book is accurate.
The excitement and action are non-stop and as always just when you think you have it figured out, Silva tosses in a game changer.
I highly recommend.
This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
