PRINCE OF FIRE by Daniel Silva: The fifth novel featuring art restorer/Israeli agent Gabriel Allon continues the series place among the tops in spy fiction. This time Gabriel is pulled from his cover to hunt down terrorists who have bombed the Israeli embassy in Rome. The mastermind behind the bombing is French archeologist Paul Martineau, aka "Khaled, son of Sabri, grandson of Sheikh Asad. Khaled, avenger of past wrongs, sword of Palestine." Khaled is also the adopted son of Yasir Arafat, who has sent him to exact vengeance on the enemies of Palestine and the PLO. Gabriels team of agents is able to track down the terrorist, but then there is a stunning twist. Gabriels mentor tells him "You're the one who defends Israel against its accusers. You're the angel of judgment - the Prince of Fire." Hopefully there will be future missions.

I enjoy Daniel Silva's Gabriel Allon series because of the way he blends fact and fiction to tell a believable (and nail-biting) story. This installment in the series follows that same format, and even features Yasir Arafat in a number of scenes. My only objection to this book (as well as the rest of the series) is the political bias - the conflict in the middle east is far more complicated than this book might suggest. However, for lovers of covert-ops fiction this book is another winner.

Art restorer and undercover agent, Gabriel Allon, goes after the man who has committed terrorist acts against his country. Although a work of fiction, it gives an interesting look into the scenes behind terrorism in the Middle East. I enjoyed reading it, it has a good pace.
