Prince of Fire:
Gabriel Allon, art restorer and spy, is back in Venice, when a terrible explosion in Rome leads to a disturbing personal revelation: the existence of a dossier in terrorist hands that strips away his secrets, lays bare his history. Hastily recalled home to Israel, drawn once more into the heart of a service he had once forsaken, Allon finds himself stalking an elusive master terrorist.
Gabriel Allon is recovering from his grueling showdown with a Palestinian master terrorist, when terrorism comes to find him once again. An al-Qaeda suspect is killed in London, and photographs are found on his computer - photographs that lead Israeli intelligence to suspect that al-Qaeda is planning one of its most audacious attacks ever, straight at the heart of the Vatican.
The Secret Servant:
Gabriel Allon is summoned once more by his masters to undertake what appears to be a routine assignment: travel to Amsterdam to purge the archives of a murdered Dutch terrorism analyst who also happened to be an asset of Israeli intelligence. But once in Amsterdam, Gabriel soon discovers a conspiracy of terror festering in the city’s Islamic underground, a plot that is about to explode on the other side of the English Channel, in the middle of London.

As has been recently noted Daniel Silva’s latest book in his over the top Gabriel Allon Series has headed every bestseller list this summer. What more could one need to realize that his writing speaks to millions, it surely does to me! If I recall correctly he once said in an interview that if his wife reminds him that he’s forgotten to do a few things he says that he spends more time in the world of Gabriel Allon than he does in his own. They’re joined at the hip and Allon is very, very real to Silva as are the other characters he creates. And, all are very, very real to listeners/readers. I make no apologies for the fact that I’m a fan and I loved this audio book - what a treat! Three books, 32 hours of listening on 3 discs. Each is read by an expert performer and all are suspenseful, surprising, and totally absorbing. The first is PRINCE OF FIRE which takes art restorer and spy Allon back to Venice. However, no time to admire his surroundings as there’s a huge explosion in Rome which makes him aware that everything known about him is now in the hands of terrorists. He’s quickly called home to Israel where he soon finds himself tracking a master terrorist. THE MESSENGER follows on the heels of Gabriel’s showdown with the master terrorist in the previous story. He’d really like a little r&r to recover from what he’d just been through, but no such luck. In London an Al-Qaeda suspect is killed and photographs are found on Gabriel’s computer. From these photos Israeli intelligence is led to believe that Al-Qaeda is planning one of the most frightening attacks yet - the Vatican! Is it possible to stop this? With THE SECRET SERVANT Gabriel is tasked with what appears to be a simple request - visit to Amsterdam to clean the files of a murdered Dutch terrorism analyst who was also of import to Israeli intelligence. A piece of cake! Not at all because once in Amsterdam Gabriel finds a conspiracy growing in the city’s Islamic underground, a horrendous plot that will threaten London. Enjoy!
