#1 New York Times bestselling author Daniel Silva delivers another stunning thriller featuring Gabriel Allon in his latest action-packed tale of high stakes international intrigue
Legendary spy and art restorer Gabriel Allon is at work in Venice repairing an altarpiece when he receives an urgent summons from the Italian police. The art dealer Julian Isherwood has stumbled upon a murder scene in Lake Como, and is being held as a suspect.
