The Rembrandt Affair (Gabriel Allon)by Daniel Silva
Synopses & Reviews
Introducing Blowback, an exhilarating new espionage thriller by former CIA ops officer Valerie Plame and thriller writer Sarah Lovett.
Covert CIA ops officer Vanessa Pierson is finally close to capturing the worlds most dangerous international nuclear arms dealer: Bhoot, alias the ghost. One of her assets has information about Bhoots upcoming visit to a secret underground nuclear weapons facility in Iran—in only a few days. But just as Piersons informant is about to give her the location, theyre ambushed by an expert sniper. Pierson narrowly escapes. Her asset: dead.
Desperate to capture Bhoot and the sniper before they inflict more damage, Pierson enlists all of the Agencys resources to find them. But with each day, the pressure of the manhunt mounts, causing her to push her forbidden romance with a fellow ops officer to its limit when she asks him to do the impossible. Despite the risks, she refuses to halt her pursuit of the terrorists, and she puts her cover and her career—and her life—at risk.
With rapid-cut shifts from European capitals to Washington to the Near East, and with insider detail that only a former spy could provide, Blowback marks the explosive beginning of the hunt for Bhoot, the villain whom Vanessa Pierson devotes her life to capturing, dead or alive.
The start of a contemporary international thriller series, by real-life ex-CIA operative Valerie Plame - author of the New York Times bestseller Fair Game - and suspense writer Sarah Lovett.
When an art restorer is murdered and a portrait by Rembrandt is stolen, Gabriel Allon is pulled into a race across the globe against a group of powerful men who will do anything to keep the truth about the painting hidden...
