Description

Gabriel Allon had a simple but brutal job: he tracked down and eliminated Israel's terrorist enemies. But when his wife and son fell victim to the danger that accompanied him everywhere, Gabriel quit and devoted himself to the world of art restoration, an occupation that had previously been a cover for his secret assignments. Now Ari Shamron, the head of Israeli intelligence, needs Gabriel's particular kind of experience to thwart a Palestinian plot to destroy the peace negotiations in the Middle East. The architect of this plot, a Palestinian zealot named Tariq, is a lethal part of Gabriel's past, so as the two being an intercontinental game of hide-and-seek, with life and death as the prizes, the motives are as personal as they are political.

Birth of a great character. Congratulations!

When you read the first character created by Mr. Silva, Michael Osborne, I expected a series, but alas, after the second volume, Mr. Silva pulled an ace from his sleeve and has created Gabriel Allon. Great reading, sophisticated prose, meticulous research of locations and events. He created a master restorer, planner and executioner. This is a one nighter, as you can't put this book down. Mr. Silva, please keep them coming.

The book is well written and the narrator uses enough voices to make the listener interested... the book keeps ones interest all thru the book.
I recommend this book

Always entertaining

This is an older story, and shorter. The reader does the voices well. Silva's stories are easy to follow while driving, unlike most spy stories, that are so complex and with so many foreign names that they are probably better enjoyed in book form. Daniel Silva is a master of the craft, and I have listened to all of his books.

hmmm… a lot like his other book

well, can't say I enjoyed this as much as the english assassin. some redundancy in the descriptive writing and a bit predictable.

Boooooooring

I dont' know how this book got such great ratings. I had trouble paying attention to it as I thought the story line stagnant and uninteresting. The narrator was OK, nothing to write home about. I kept listening in the hopes something great would come of this but nothing ever did and I'm sorry I ever got this book.

a dated story

What did you like best about The Kill Artist? What did you like least?

I thought the main character was fascinating, but the story itself didn't keep my attention and devolved into a misanthropic blah.

Would you recommend The Kill Artist to your friends? Why or why not?

just not fresh enough to recommend.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

if it were updated to reflect more current trends in movie heroines, probably.

Not my cup of tea.

Filled with indistinguishable charachters for whom you build no affinity. Narrator is great, but this story is slow to develope, convoluted, and confusing. USe your credits elsewhere.

Very Good Assassin Story

This is going to be a very good series of Gabriel Allon. I am going to order all series for sure!
