Author: Daniel Silva
In starting this book, I've done what I hate to do â read book three in a trilogy before book one. All I know is now I want to get my hands on book one and book two.
The main character, Gabriel Allon, is the same in the three books, as is his life, his back story. His job â spy â is also the same. I am assuming that the individual situations he gets involved in close with the end of each book.
Since Gabriel Allon is an operative for the Israeli network, and is the son of a survivor of the Holocaust, Jewish issues and concerns figure prominently in the series. The author describes the books as âthree novels dealing with the unfinished business of the Holocaustâ.
This is an old-fashioned thriller with many characters in many countries. There are twists and turns. A person's history can come back to haunt him.
Historical mystery that entertained as well as taught.
