Heist is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Daniel Silva delivers another stunning thriller featuring Gabriel Allon in his latest action-packed tale of high stakes international intrigue

Legendary spy and art restorer Gabriel Allon is at work in Venice repairing an altarpiece when he receives an urgent summons from the Italian police. The art dealer Julian Isherwood has stumbled upon a murder scene in Lake Como, and is being held as a suspect. To save his friend, Gabriel must perform one simple task: Find the most famous missing painting in the world.

Sometimes the best way to find a stolen masterpiece is to steal another one...

The dead man is a fallen spy with a secret: he’s been trafficking in stolen artworks and selling them to a mysterious collector. Among those paintings is the world’s most iconic missing masterpiece: Caravaggio’sNativity with St. Francis and St. Lawrence.

Gabriel embarks on a daring gambit to recover the Caravaggio that will take him on an exhilarating hunt-from Marseilles and Corsica, to Paris and Geneva, and, finally, to a small private bank in Austria, where a dangerous man stands guard over the ill-gotten wealth of one of the world’s most brutal dictators …

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Terrific Read from Daniel Silva This is the latest in the series of Silva mystery novels, set in Europe. Silva's protagonist is an Israeli secret agent who also works as an art restorer. This book, as in his previous novels is intriguing and offers rich detail about art restoration, European sites and host of interesting characters. It is best to read the Silva series in order of publication. Check the Indigo.ca Web site for the chronology of Silva's publications. This novel, like his others, is well worth the read!
