Gabriel is back but now the top dog and not totally comfortable in the role. Saladin, the premier terrorist, is the office’s target.
The book tears its plot off the headlines of practically any international news source. Terrorism is fueling a wealth of books on its existence. Silva’s talent allows his books to stand above the plethora of “current event” novels.
Reading, once again, about Gabriel is liking encountering an old, scary friend. His intensity leaps off the pages and again showcases Silva’s talent.
Lots of action and some old characters from the British, French and US intelligence apparatus.
As usual a good reading experience from Daniel Silva.
This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
