9780007433315: Portrait of a Spy (Gabriel Allon 11)

Gabriel Allon, secret agent, assassin and master art restorer, returns in a spellbinding new novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author

Europe is exploding. And one man must find out why.

For Gabriel Allon and his wife Chiara, it was supposed to be the start of a romantic weekend in London. But nothing is ever that simple when you’re an off-duty spy and assassin.

Bombings in Paris and Copenhagen have put him on edge and when Gabriel notices a man exhibiting several traits common to suicide bombers, he follows him into the Covent Garden throng. He’s determined to prevent the carnage he fears is about to take place, but before Gabriel can draw his sidearm, he is knocked to the pavement by two plain-clothes police officers.

A moment later he looks up to find a scene from his nightmares.

From the streets of New York and London,
to the unforgiving landscape of the Saudi desert,
Gabriel Allon is in a race to the death against a calculating mass-murderer that he dare not lose…

Product Description:

It was supposed to be the start of a pleasant weekend in London for master art restorer and spy Gabriel Allon and his wife, Chiara. But a deadly pair of bombings in Paris and Copenhagen has already marred this lovely autumn day. Then, before he can stop a man he suspects is 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 whom Allah 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 . . .

Review:

‘‘Allon is the 21st century Bond - elegantly paced, subtle and well-informed. If you haven’t read Silva before, try Portrait of a Spy - and then go back and read the series.’ Daily Mail

'Sexily brooding Allon… must be the most famous superspy not played by Daniel Craig' Daily Telegraph

'In true Bauer fashion, shoot-outs, kidnappings and international terror plots follow Gabriel Allon wherever he goes' USA Today

‘Silva builds tension with breathtaking double and triple turns of the plot’ People
