incredible secret agent since James Bond He does it mostly without all secret agent since James Bond He does it mostly without all gimmicks that 007 has at his disposal Allon and his colleagues at Israel s spy agency and the CIA are faced with attacks on the Vatican and the Pope in THE MESSENGER by Daniel Silva ISBN 978 0451221728 paperback 999 Allon an art restorer of great repute his cover occupation and super spy is called out of semi retirement as an agent when a laptop computer belonging to a deceased al ueda recruiter indicates a forthcoming attack on the Vatican and the Pope Allon arrives in Rome shortly before the attack and warns the Pope and the Vatican security service about the attack He is too late to save St Peter s from damage But does he save the PopeIn this international thriller a previously unknown Vincent Van Gogh painting is used for bait Allon s art background helps in a proposed scam A young talented and beautiful art curator at a Washington DC museum is recruited to assist in this scam to draw out a couple of well heeled Saudi financial supporters and assassins with strong ties to al ueda Travel to Israel England Switzerland Italy the Caribbean and the US with the Team trying to thwart these schemesDaniel Silva may be the best current writer of spy thrillers I have read several of Silva s books and njoyed them all You don t have to read the stories in order but it sure helps I have bounced around in the seuence of stories as I try to catch up and it can be confusing BUT DO READ THEM IF THIS *IS YOUR GENREGO BUY READ Didn t read much at all actually Maybe *YOUR GENREGO BUY READ Didn t read much at all actually Maybe I d tried the first book in the series it would have worked better But this was for a book club and I just dove inThe Cold War they re out to kill us all mentality of the bad guys all Muslim of course and good guys didn t do it for me Maybe this makes me no different than the appeasement policy proponents during WWII and I m horribly horribly naive But I really didn t care for all the scare mongering about Islam I m sure that Muslim terrorists make for great bad guys But the writing felt stilted the hero seemed like he had a stick up his ass and I didn t buy into the urgency So black and whiteEveryone but one character with actual lines was ridiculously good looking from the Al uaeda recruiter to our hero to the priest that he works with Everyone was tall and slim with Hello, Hippo! Goodbye, Bird! either a cleft in the chin seriously or shockingmerald Cannibal eyes The Jewish prime minister ish guy on the other hand was a caricatureven rudely and mercantile ly yes it s a word now asking our hero xactly how much money he was making for restoring a painting Our hero had hair salted with grey at the temples prematurely However he was involved in the hunting down of the assassins of the Jewish athletes in 1974 so he has to be at least 50 in this 2006 book right Or is the book set back in time Why can t this 50 year old hero keep his girlfriend The author seems to have a real thing for Italian women I like novels like Le Carre s that get into the ambiguity and moral compromises that go along with spying There s betrayal of trust there s boredom there s doubt Except this author doesn t do any of those interesting things I never got into the hero s head at all Everything was us vs them and no shades of gray That might make for a good popcorn read if I was in the right mood and if the racism bigotry and utter lack of attention to women in the first 30 pages of the book hadn t made it too unpleasant of a reading xperience for Man, Son of Man even that much More of the same and that s OK if not than OK I m slowly making my way through the series I started at the beginning and now I m about a third of the way through At the rate I m going returningvery now and then it ll be years until I catch up to the author While my sense is that Silva is. O do Vaticano Allon avisa o seu velho amigo monsenhor Luigi Donati secretário pessoal do Papa Alter Ego e parte para Roma a fim de ajudar na segurança O ue nemle nem Donati sabem é ue o inimigo já se infiltrou no VaticanoNas semanas ue se seguem Allon irá travar um mortífero duelo de astúcia contra um dos homens mais perigosos do mundo ue o levará Play it again Sam Spy novels are meant to xplore the moral gray areas that xist when you have state actors performing xtralegal deeds which may individually be unethical or inhumane yet when done in the interest of the safety of one s country becomes pseudo sanctified The great heroes of these stories are usually flawed because the reader is never completely sure that their actions are just To me this crisis of conscience is what makes spy novels fun to readApparently Daniel Silva thinks differently Gone are the complexities of motive and the psychological toll of good people behaving brutally this is post 911 Man Terrorists Are Terrorists Because They Re Evil No man Terrorists are terrorists because they re vil No whose responsibility it is to kill bad guys would Unseen City ever have doubts because the bad guys are terrorists And terrorists as previouslystablished are Art evil Oh and I don tven need to tell you who the terrorists are in this book God Is in the Crowd every single Arab or Muslim character mentioned And who are the good guys Every single American Israeli and Catholic character Whew That s a relief because I d hate to be surprised or conflicted over a character s intentionsin a spy novelIt s this remarkably simplistic worldview that Silva injects into this novel that I m sure is great for selling books at airports but if you have any interest in complicated characters orven a basic understanding of the politics and history of the Middle East it is infuriating I don t want to turn this into a political thing but maybe we can all agree that Israel has not always acted thically while Palestinians are not always ruthless bastards the IsraeliPalestinian conflict is way complicated than that However Silva practically portrays Israelis as innocently petting puppies on their front stoops minding their own business when all of the sudden rabid Palestinians descend and tear them to pieces Because they hate their freedom right So in that light our Israeli hero is always angelic in his intentions and never doubts his mission while the terrorist bad guys are simply spiteful pricks who do their best to kill innocent civilians Easy peasySo since there is no depth this is of an adventure than a spy novel I m still giving it 2 stars because if read as an action packed story in the vein of most Jason Statham movies then it s actually a well paced fun book But do not go into this book hoping for any intricacies as I didOne last comment I hate it when writers can t stick with the simplest consistency of character description Chiara fastidious in all other things always left her breakfast dishes in the sink then one sentence later he tossed his bag onto the unmade bed in her apartment Grr Silva might as well just change her hair color mid scene Originally posted on Gone With The BooksWhen I started this thriller I didn t know that it was part of a
series And when I realized it I was right in the middle of a tough but And when I realized it I was right in the middle of a tough but written plot about agent Gabriel Allon who has to do another dangerous job The story starts right of with a deadly situation and the I read the it felt kind of scary Because almost verything that happened in this thriller is today about ten years later sad reality The setting goes from London and Tel Aviv to Rome Paris the Caribbean Switzerland and back to Rom I own The Gabriel Allon series for two reasons 1 they are The Matriarchs (The Family exciting intricate well written and sometime heart stopping action regarding the best spy and assasin Israel has who also happens to be a masterful artist that has forgone painting to restoring great Master s originals and 2 Daniel Silva EDUCATES me on what is actually going on in the middleast In the beginning of the series not so much on the political arena but it starts with the attack on the Israeli athletes in 1972 but as his books have progressed so has his political acumen I watched an interivew about 6 months ago on PBS and his research is impeccable he has a massive understanding of what s happening whether or not the Catholic Church and the United States will back Israel when it really counts and I think that time is coming soon I ll repeat this same review for all the Gabriel Allon series with the slight Notes for the Everlost emphasis on how as the series progressses the story lines becom.

"up by a "by a Needless to say this puts Gabriel in a bad mood and the rest of the book is mainly about him going after the perpetratorsThere is also a lot of suspense in the book as there is a woman involved of course who is helping Gabriel and for most of the book she is in a very dangerous situation and I found it really nerve wracking wondering whether she was going to survive or notNeedless to say as this is a thriller and Gabriel is an assassin there is a fair bit of violence in the book and people die However it is handled in an almost matter of fact fashion and isn t overly graphicIn general I thought this was a really great read set in Deep Listening exotic locales and with almost non stop action If you are interested I would strongly recommend you start with the first book The Kill Artist and continue reading them in order Events happen in thearly books that are crucial to understanding Gabriel as a person and he has relationships with people that develop over time In any Bird-by-Bird Gardening event I cannot recommend these books highlynoughAnd you get to learn some interesting facts about where the money comes from to fund Al aeda and other terrorist groups Sometimes it is better to give an opponent a small victory than suffer a devastating defeat yourself The Messenger is 6 in Mr Silva s Gabriel Allon series out of 18 currently published Although not as good as s 4 5 it is still a good read and like most books in this series also raises some important issues Within the first 60 pages Israeli spy and art restorer Gabriel Allon is at the Vatican to ward off a terrorist threat and the novel kicks into high gear from thereOne of the things that I appreciate about this series is that Mr Silva usually gives us both sides of an issue In this text a character the Pope goes on an anti Ira War bent Just as the shots at George W Bush are starting to get me annoyed I hate when a character keeps beating a dead horse another character speaks up with the counter point Both sides How awesome and rare is that One thing I greatly appreciated in The Messenger is that Silva turns an unflinching The Works of Saint Augustine eye on Saudi Arabia s state sponsorship of terrorism which too often the West seems to turn a blindye towards When a character reminds us to Seek justice rather than vengeance the reader really has to stop and think about what constitutes the differences in that in our modern worldAn issue I had with this text is that at times it came across as a little melodramatic Unbuttoning the CEO (The Suits Undone even for a spy thriller Thus it took me out of the story occasionally A small uibble I know but it does detract from the novel and could have been avoidedThe journey continues I will pick up 7 soo.
