Moscow Rules (Gabriel Allon #8)

Moscow Rules is the latest Gabriel Allon book by Daniel Silva. (Unfortunately, I read the others before I began to blog - may add them later...)

Gabriel Allon is an art restorer. He is one of the best in the world. Had he wanted to he could have been the most successful forger in the world. However, before he could finish art school he was called to help his country.

Now, when not restoring art, Gabriel is an assassin. He has been part of the Israeli counter-terrorism team since just after the Munich Olympics. Every time his boss, Ari Shamron, calls Gabriel stops painting and hunts down another enemy of Israel.

In Moscow Rules, Gabriel is only supposed to meet with a Russian newspaper man. It should only take a couple of hour - which is good since he is on his honeymoon. But like all things that Gabriel gets involved with, something will draw him further into the race. In this case it is a race to track down a Russian arms dealer who has just sold anti-aircraft missiles to the same group that attacked the US on 9/11.

Silva is a master of international espionage. His books are face-paced and exciting from the first page to the last. His settings are alluring and the action heart racing. Start at the beginning of the series:
