Portrait of a Spy (Gabriel Allon)by Daniel Silva
Synopses & Reviews
It was supposed to be the start of a pleasant weekend in London for master art restorer and spy Gabriel Allonand his wife, Chiara. But a deadly pair of bombings in Paris and Copenhagen has already marred this lovelyautumn day. Then, before he can stop a man he suspectsis about to launch a third attack in Covent Garden,Gabriel is knocked to the pavement—and he can only watch helplessly as the nightmare unfolds.
The haunting memory of his failure to stop the massacre of innocents is still fresh when Gabriel is summoned to Washington—and plunged into a deadly confrontation with the new face of global terror. An elusive American-born cleric in Yemen—once a paid CIA asset whomAllah has granted "a beautiful and seductive tongue"—stands at the center of the explosive plague of death and destruction. And the worst is yet to come . . .
A tentative peace between Israel and Palestine has been brokered by the United States. But the Taskforce—a clandestine team operating outside of US law to protect the country from terrorism—hears of an assassination attempt on the American envoy sent to solidify the treaty. The Taskforce must devote every resource to saving his life—and preventing another bloody outbreak of violence.
Taskforce operator Pike Logan and his partner, Jennifer Cahill, must hunt down the assassin through the Middle East, following a trail that becomes more perilous at every turn. And they must deal with terrorist organizations, independent killers, and shaky allies to uncover the biggest threat of all: an American citizen hiding a secret that just may destroy everything, including the Taskforce.
“A bona fide thrill ride.”
“Silva builds tension with breathtaking double and triple turns of plot.”
Portrait of a Spy is Silvas eleventh thriller to feature art restorer and master spy Gabriel Allon as he races from Great Britain to Washington to New York to the Middle East on the trail of a deadly and elusive terrorist network responsible for massacres in Paris, Copenhagen, and at Londons Covent Garden.
