9780141019086: A Death in Vienna

Art restorer and spy Gabriel Allon is sent to Vienna to discover the truth behind a bombing which killed an old friend - a Nazi hunter.

While there he encounters something that turns his whole life upside down.

Each fact he uncovers only leads to more questions until finally a picture emerges which is more terrible than he could have ever imagined - a portrait of evil stretching across 60 years and thousands of lives into his own personal nightmares.

Review:

Gabriel Allon hasn't been back to Vienna since his wife and child died there in a terrorist bombing. But when his mentor in the Israeli intelligence agency dispatches him to the Austrian capital to investigate a murderous explosion at the Wartime Claims and Inquiry Office, his presence draws the attention of police officials who have reasons to stand in the way of his investigation. When a concentration camp survivor is killed who could link the father of Austria's next chancellor to Nazi atrocities and an ongoing coverup by the Catholic church, Allon discovers another connection to the conspiracy, this one closer to his own past than he could ever have imagined.

This is the third of Silva's thrillers featuring Allon, the art restorer who's also a spy. (The Confessor and The English Assassin are the first two.) In an endnote, the author calls them a "completed cycle dealing with the unfinished business of the Holocaust". Allon is such a compelling hero that one hopes Silva, a skilled craftsman and a terrific storyteller, will bring him back in another series. --Jane Adams, Amazon.com

Review:

"A masterful and compelling tale of evil, treachery and revenge...goes to the top of the list of this year's best."-- "Rocky Mountain News" "A masterfully constructed tale of memory and revenge. It demonstrates that thrillers can be more than entertainment."-- "Miami""Herald" "[A] superbly crafted narrative of espionage and foreign intrigue."-- "Publishers Weekly"
