But now he is being called back into the game. The agent with whom he is teamed hides behind her own beautiful maskas a French fashion model. Their target: a cunning terrorist on one last killing spree, a Palestinian zealot named Tariq who played a dark part in Gabriels past. What begins as a manhunt turns into a globe-spanning duel fueled by political intrigue and deep personal passions. In a world where secrecy and duplicity are absolute, revenge is a luxury no man can affordand the greatest masterpiece of all.

My first foray into the world of Israeli assassin Gabriel Allon...and it won‘t be my last! My pulse raced as the final chapters unfolded. A good thrill ride with tons of jumping from country to country. And, Gabriel is an art restorer...that‘s just awesome!

(Day 11 - #OverMyShoulder)

*Gabriel Allon has been looking “over his shoulder” for going on 19 books now. That‘s what happens when you become an undercover agent for Israeli intelligence. An art restorer by trade, Allon is a bit of a reluctant asset. He usually has to be persuaded to come out of his comfortable life as an art restorer. The tagged book is the first in the series.

TrishB A great series 👍🏻 5mo
gradcat @TrishB I seem to like a lot of the same books as you, & I agree with you 100%! 5mo

My first Allon book. It started a bit slow as the characters were set up and background was explained, but about 1/3 of the way in I was hooked and didn‘t want to put it down. Allon is an art restorer and Israeli spy who comes out of retirement to try and take down a long time enemy and restore the reputation of israel‘s intelligence service. Well-paced and exciting with a twist I did not expect.

Really enjoyed this! A fast-paced thriller thriller, that zips around the world and back. Pretty sure most of the characters are running on #adrenaline most of the way through. Unlike me, who is very glad it's Friday, and so dozy I forgot to take a photo before I returned the book. So here's a view while I get some caffeine! Will definitely be giving more in the series a go.

The Kill Artist is the first novel in Silva‘s Gabriel Allon series. Gabriel is an art restorer and an Israeli intelligence agent. This was a great book, and I can‘t wait to continue with the series 😊 Thanks to @Cinfhen for bringing this one to my attention and to @DGRachel for adding her recommendation (have you read this @TrishB ? You‘d like it). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

On another note, we are now in New Brunswick and 30 mins from our destination *YAY*

Andrew65 I loved this too and have loved all of the first 3 I have read, I do need to get back to this series. 2y
Melissa_J @Andrew65 somehow I figured this was a series you have read 😊 2y
Andrew65 @Melissa_J Only the first 3 so far, but is one I want to target in the rest of the year. 2y

I‘m just not a fan of mysteries, suspense, whodunnits. I don‘t know why tho because when I do, on occasion, read them I get pulled in and read like the pages are on fire and yet I just don‘t like them🤷‍♀️ It‘s a #mystery to me (lol sorry, had to do it!)

FountainBookstore @Mdargusch I think you can start anywhere having read most of them, but he is becoming increasingly politically preachy in the more recent years. I don't enjoy that trend. 2y
RebelReader Love, Love, Love!!!! ❤️❤️❤️ 2y
DGRachel @Mdargusch I would read these in order. They build on previous experiences and there are things that happen in later books that are spoilers for earlier ones. Can you read them out of order? Probably. But I think you‘d enjoy them more in order. 2y
Melissa_J I really need to check this series out. It sounds like something I‘d enjoy. 2y

DGRachel @Melissa_J @Mdargusch the tagged book is the first in the series. I think there are 18 total right now. I‘m on #16 - almost caught up. They‘re so good. 2y
Cinfhen I agree with @DGRachel it's best to read in order although the author does a good job keeping u informed of back stories in case you've missed some @Mdargusch the picture above is the books in order. There are 17 books so far but they read quickly @bobregina 😁 2y

SandyW @Cinfhen I like Jason Isaacs for Allon! 2y
aschermetz @Cinfhen Yes! 🙈🙈I have read them so many times. I usually reread at least some if not all of them each year in anticipation of the next one! 2y
Cinfhen OMG @aschermetz you REALLY ❤️Gabriel😂😂😂😆 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @SandyW @Cinfhen @aschermetz @RebelReader @Leftcoastzen I‘ve been imagining Eric Bana as Gabriel, but I suspect both he and Jason Isaacs are actually too old to play Gabriel. We need to find someone in their early 40s. Hmmmmmmmm 2y
aschermetz @BarbaraTheBibliophage I read an interview once with Daniel Silva where he says that he pictures Daniel Day Lewis as Gabriel, who I think is definitely too old at this point. But I haven‘t been able to get his image out of my head when I read now. @Cinfhen @SandyW @RebelReader @Leftcoastzen 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @aschermetz Oh yeah, he‘s too old now but the younger Daniel would absolutely fit! My qualifications are: dark hair, medium tall, lean muscle, strong nose and chin. Sexy, smart and damaged look. Whoooo? @Cinfhen @SandyW @RebelReader @Leftcoastzen 2y
RebelReader @aschermetz @Leftcoastzen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @SandyW @Cinfhen I'm so uninformed in regards to younger actors so I just have a picture in my mind. I would love this to be a Netflix series ( after I read them all of course! 😜)! 2y

I liked this one, first time I have read this series and I think I will continue with it. I like that a lot of plot points were wrapped up/ answered but I can see how things are still left open for further books. I wonder if Gabriel ages as the books progress from the 90's, or does he stay the same age like Alex Delaware?

DGRachel Do you really want to know? I can tell you, but I don't want to spoil the series for you. 😊 2y

If you like thrillers, Daniel Silvia is turning out some of the best today. I just ordered "House of Spies," his 17th Gabriel Allon novel. An Israeli secret agent, Allon travels around the world posing as an art restorer. In this first novel, Gabriel is lured out of retirement and asked to spearhead a secret assassination task force. A word of warning: read the Allon books in order because Silva puts spoilers in the later books.

MrBook Great review. He's in my TBR. 3y
Richryan52 You will love him. But he does repeat himself in the later books and has no qualms about including spoilers 3y

I need some good, old fashion, page turning, spy thriller action after my boring weekend read. And due to my book OCD I am compelled to start the series at book 1. I hope it's good because this is a nice long series I can dive into. Also started some non fiction to counter all the action.

DGRachel I love the Gabriel Allon series. I'm reading #12 as we speak. Enjoy! 3y
Dragon I've read a few of his later books in the series. Thoroughly enjoyed them so I really should read the earlier ones too 😂 3y
Cinfhen I'm such a Gabriel Alon fan, hope you fall in love as well💗 3y

I started reading the Gabriel Allon series around book 9 or 10 and love them. Picked up the first of the series as a daily deal a while back. Thought it might be fun to go back and read from the beginning. Great thrillers all the way back, it seems. But, I do know where the carryover plot lines are going. 😏

mjdowens This is one of my all time favorite series. I think it is mostly that I have a crush on A fictional character😳 3y

This started very promisingly, as a pacy thriller, though the author fell into the common trap of over-elaboration. See my goodreads review at: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1041210.The_Kill_Artist.

Gradually thawing out after a morning chopping firewood in the snow. Enjoying this fast paced thriller, and the coffee is rather splendid too.

My first Daniel Silva book! The Kill Artist did not disappoint - by the end I felt intimately connected to the characters and their beautifully told, intricately woven story. Being set in so many cities around the globe, I also felt the thrill of a world traveler, hot on the heels of these secret agents. Already started the second in the Allon series!

LiteraryinLititz It sounds great! Is it overly gory? 3y
BennettBookworm Not at all! 3y
