Gabriel Allon, master art restorer and assassin,
returns in a spellbinding new novel from the #1 New York
Over the course of a brilliant career, Daniel Silva has
established himself as "the gold standard" of thriller writers
(Dallas Morning News) who "has hit upon the perfect
formula to keep espionage-friendly fans'' fingers glued to his
books, turning pages in nearly breathless anticipation"
(BookPage). But now, having reached "the pinnacle of
world-class spy thriller writing" (The Denver Post), Silva
has produced his most extraordinary novel to date-a tale of greed,
passion, and murder spanning more than half a century, centered on

Filled with remarkable twists and turns of plot, and told with
