The Defector (Gabriel Allon #9)

The Defector is the latest Daniel Silva book featuring Gabriel Allon - the Israeli assassin who keeps trying to retire to a life of restoring paintings but keeps getting pulled back into service.

The Defector is a continuation of the previous book, Moscow Rules. Business that Gabriel though was wrapped up begins to unravel when a man who helped save him disappears from his home in London.

Gigori Bulganov would never willingly go back to Russia - as a defector who used to work for the FSB (the current day version of the KGB) he would be killed as a traitor.

Gabriel thinks of it as his responsibility to find Gigori and bring him back to England.
The man whose life was disrupted in the previous book is out for revenge and will stop at nothing to get the people who hurt him.

I can't really say much more without giving away this and the previous books. What I can say is that Daniel Silva is a brilliant author whose stories and characters pull reader into his created world from the first page. Readers of espionage, thrillers, or politics will quickly become addicted to his writing. This book The Unlikely Spy was the most fascinating and plot-twisting book I have ever read.
