The Kill Artist
(Gabriel Allon 1)av Daniel SilvaWhen a terrorist returns to take revenge - watch out! The first in the thriller Gabriel Allon series. From the No. 1 bestselling author of THE CELLIST The chief of Israeli Intelligence recalls two former agents in order to eliminate a top Palestinian terrorist. One agent is now an art restorer, the other a fashion model. Ten years before, on a mission to destroy the Arab Black September group, they were briefly lovers. Now their pasts and their enemies come back to haunt them, as the terrorist murders ambassadors in Paris and Holland. Will the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks be his next target? And what motivates the terrorist? Is it politics, or is it possibly personal? Set mainly in London, but with forays into Paris, Amsterdam, the Middle East and north America, this thriller has all Daniel Silva's hallmarks of strong characters, unusual backgrounds and a page-turning narrative.

A thrill-a-minute sure-fire bestseller [that] rips Middle East strife from the headlines * KIRKUS * Although the novel moves at a really fast clip, cutting from location to location, Silva avoids the espionage novelist's sin of glossy locales and comic-book action by giving his characters, even the minor ones, believably complex motivations that come into play in the thriller's overriding conflict. Part of the interest of Silva's work is the way he portrays various professions (here it's art dealership, publishing, and modelling) to be every bit as cutthroat as international intrigue * BOOKLIST * A master writer of espionage ... [Silva's] writing is clean, crisp, and compelling * CINCINNATI ENQUIRER * The tragedy of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and despair of its resolution provide the backdrop for Silva's heart-stopping, complex yarn of international terrorism and intrigue ... An array of global locales adds to the complexity and authenticity of the dizzying, cinematic plot * PUBLISHERS WEEKLY *
