Gabriel Allon faces his most determined enemy-and greatest challenge-in the stunning novel from the world-class practitioner of spy fiction.

Now Allon is back in Venice, when a terrible explosion in Rome leads to a disturbing personal revelation: the existence of a dossier in terrorist hands that strips away his secrets, lays bare his history. Hastily recalled home to Israel, drawn once more into the heart of a service he had once forsaken, Allon finds himself stalking an elusive master terrorist across a landscape drenched with generations of blood, the trail turning on itself until, finally, he can no longer be certain who is stalking whom. And when at last the showdown comes, it will not be Gabriel alone who is threatened with destruction - for it is not his history alone that has been laid bare.

Few recent thriller writers have elicited the kind of critical praise that Daniel Silva has received, with his “provocative and deeply satisfying” (The Miami Herald) novels featuring art restorer and sometime spy Gabriel Allon, “a man whose depth and passion make him one of the most fascinating characters in the genre” (Chicago Sun-Times).

A knife-edged thriller of astonishing intricacy and feeling, filled with exhilarating prose, this is Daniel Silva’s finest novel yet.

    Comments about Prince of Fire:

    Like gripping crime fiction in a contemporary geo-political backdrop. Each is self contained, but I'm on tenterhooks when I finish one book and haven't got my hands on the next one in the series.
