        "It's become almost obligatory for lovers of high level thrillers to read each new Daniel Silva novel as soon as it appears. With his by now trademark character, Gabriel Allon...Silva just about guarantees a couple of days of terrific entertainment." — NPR, All Things Considered

        "Daniel Silva's The Fallen Angel soars with authenticity....The Fallen Angel delivers the goods....Riveting espionage adventures that have timely, real-world relevance." — Dallas-Fort Worth Star-Telegram

        "Meticulously researched....The Fallen Angel is a first-class spy mystery painted on a grand scale." — Columbus Dispatch

        "His past 12 books, all featuring enigmatic spy/art restorer Gabriel Allon, have kept Silva's name high in the ranks; the latest, the Vatican-set The Fallen Angel, seems unlikely to reverse the trend." — Arizona Republic

        December 24, 2012
        Spy and art expert Gabriel Allon, officially retired from the Israeli intelligence service after a nearly fatal assignment, is safely ensconced inside the Vatican restoring a Caravaggio when a young female antiquities curator falls to her death at St. Peter's Basilica. The police call it suicide, but the pope's private secretary asks Allon to discreetly investigate. It's the ideal setup for a mystery, especially when looted antiquarian treasures, the Mafia, and money laundering are added to the mix. And before long, Allon's mentor arrives on the scene in an attempt to lure him back into the spy game. Initially narrator George Guidall's deep baritone sounds a bit too avuncular for Allon. But as the audiobook progresses, his rendition of the character becomes stronger and takes on a hint of weary cynicism. Guidall's accented interpretations of Vatican officials, Israeli spies, and even a Frenchman or two prove entirely convincing. And his pacing—especially as events unfold leading to yet another of race against time for Allon—ideally complements Silva's suspenseful novel. A Harper paperback.

        February 15, 2012

        Art restorer and spy Gabriel Allon is glad to be back in Rome, cleaning up a Caravaggio. Then he gets a call from Monsignor Luigi Donati, the pope's personal secretary, who's found the body of a woman lying beneath the dome of St. Peter's Basilica. No, Allon does not see this as a suicide and digs deeper to uncover a ring of antiquities smugglers with revenge on their minds. The one-day laydown on July 7 and 500,000-copy first printing make this pretty much essential.
