This is another book in the series with Gabriel Allon as the protagonist. Although the books can stand alone (they have to since I am reading them out of order), there are characters which thread themselves through all of them â and back story that stays the same. His history is the same, his friends, family, job and boss are the same.

This series, with an Israeli âoperativeâ in the leading âroleâ always refers back to the Holocaust â what was taken, what was done, what was never âpaid backâ. It is Gabriel Allon's job, in one way or another to balance the scales.

I still like the series enough to try to obtain more books â there are at least five by nowâ¦

Throughout the book there are references made to a specific piece of music. Thanks to the Internet, we can actually hear that music. Granted it's not being played by the character in the book, but it is on youtube.com @ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nQ798THmR5Y.
