This is a Gabriel Allon novel. He is a Jewish Mossad agent and art restorer who lives in Italy. There are repeat characters who we are happy to see and some who we know will create havoc and death. Very intriguing and well written. This story takes Gabriel right to the Pope who also wants to uncover the truth about the church's response to the Holocaust...while a powerful cardinal plots against Gabriel and the Pope. I highly recommend this book.

THE CONFESSOR by Daniel Silva: If you think Italians have a long memory, you should spend some time in the Middle East. We're the ones who invented the vendetta, not the Sicilians." Gabriel Allon, art restorer and Mossad hit man, is once again reluctantly dragged from his day job by Israeli spymaster Ari Shamron. This time, it's a revenge mission. An academic working on an expose about the Vatican's collaboration with the Nazis has been assassinated by a secret Vatican society known as Crux Vera. Crux Vera intends to kill the latest pope to keep him from exposing the Vatican's secret archives. Gabriel must take up his slain colleague's research, something the Italian and German governments assuredly do not want him to do. The series just gets better and better.

I enjoyed this book enormously. Daniel Silva has a wonderful protagonist in Gabriel. Descriptions of areas are comprehensive and this one dealt with the Catholic Church during WWII. It is always fascinating to learn what various religions did during this time (or did not do). If you like action and history relating to the Nazi's and WWII, this is probably a good bet for you.

Another good Gabriel Allon thriller by Silva. A lot of intrigue concerning the role the Catholic Church played in the persecution, mass deportation and extermination of the Jewish people in Europe.

I loved this book. It follows up on events as Moscow Rules ended, but it can be read as a self-standing book as well. The drama, the excitement, the close encounters, the intrigue are vintage Silva, and the characters are well-drawn. Hard to put down, this book captured my attention with every page. I highly recommend this one to anyone interested in thrillers.

A 5 star review.

A little too contrived, plot is really center around Jewishness/Holocaust rather than the Catholic church.

Liked this a lot - usually start reading one of the books in this series and don't do anything else until I've finished. The descriptions of places are beautifully described - you can almost picture them in your mind. Liked the twist at the end - can recommend this book.
