Description
Art restorer and sometime spy Gabriel Allon is sent to Vienna to authenticate a painting, but the real object of his search becomes something else entirely: to find out the truth about the photograph that has turned his world upside down. It is the face of the unnamed man who brutalized his mother in the last days of World War II, during the Death March from Auschwitz. But is it really the same one? If so, who is he? How did he escape punishment? Where is he now?Fueled by an intensity he has not felt in years, Allon cautiously begins to investigate, but the more layers he strips away, the greater the evil that is revealed, a web stretching across sixty years and thousands of lives. Soon, the quest for one monster becomes the quest for many. And the monsters are stirring . . . Filled with sharply etched characters and prose, and a plot of astonishing intricacy, this is an uncommonly intelligent thriller by one of our very best writers.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Gabriel Allon, art restorer and sometime Israeli intelligence agent, returns. As the story shifts from Vienna to Rome to Tel Aviv to Buenos Aires, we follow Allon's efforts to thwart a conspiracy between former Nazi SS officers and Vatican officials. It's an intricate plot that is satisfactorily sorted out in the end. John Lee gives a masterful performance, as he did in his reading of Silva's earlier work, The Confessor. All the accents, from Italian to German to Argentine, sound perfect. The individual speech patterns he uses give subtle indications of character. And his pacing is excellent, always in tune with the action. A riveting narration. R.E.K. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine

        Starred review from January 12, 2004
        Silva completes his cycle of three interconnected novels (The English Assassin
        ; The Confessor
        ) dealing with "the unfinished business of the Holocaust" with this superbly crafted narrative of espionage and foreign intrigue. During the later stages of WWII, Sturmbannführer
        Erich Radek's job was to erase all evidence of the Holocaust. Radek, now known as Ludwig Vogel, is chairman of the Danube Valley Trade and Investment Corporation and lives quietly in Vienna. A bombing at the Austrian Wartime Claims and Inquiries office leaves chief investigator Eli Lavon near death. Undercover Mossad agent Gabriel Allon, protagonist of the two previous novels, is ordered by Israeli spymaster Ari Shamron to ferret out the perpetrator. Allon is reluctant—he's working as an art restorer on one of Bellini's great altarpieces in Venice—but Eli is an old friend from the secret service, and duty calls. The case becomes personal when Allon, reading his mother's account of her time in the camps—"I will not tell all the things I saw. I cannot. I owe this much to the dead"—discovers that not only was Radek a sadistic monster, his mother was very nearly murdered by him. The chase is long and complex as agents from a number of international spy groups circle and harass Allon as he hunts down the infamous and still deadly Radek. Those seeking cheap thrills should look elsewhere. Action and suspense abound, but this is serious fiction with a serious purpose. Silva keeps the pressure on the reader as well as his characters as there are important lessons to be learned and vital history to be remembered. Author tour.
