The #1 national bestseller from the author of Prince of Fire

On the trail of a deadly al-Qaeda operative, Gabriel Allon returns in a spellbinding story of deception, power, and revenge by the New York Times bestselling "world-class practitioner of spy fiction" (Washington Post).

Gabriel Allon, art restorer and spy, is about to face the greatest challenge of his life.

Allon is recovering from his grueling showdown with a Palestinian master terrorist, when terrorism comes to find him once again. An al-Qaeda suspect is killed in London, and photographs are found on his computer - photographs that lead Israeli intelligence to suspect that al-Qaeda is planning one of its most audacious attacks ever, straight at the heart of the Vatican.

Allon warns his old friend Monsignor Luigi Donati, the pope’s private secretary, and rushes to Rome to assist in security, but what neither he nor Donati knows is that the Vatican has been thoroughly penetrated. An extraordinary enemy walks among them…and he’s just getting started.

In the days and weeks to come, Allon and his colleagues will find themselves in a deadly duel of wits against one of the most dangerous men in the world - a hunt that will take them across Europe to the Caribbean and back. But for them, there may simply not be enough of anything: enough time, enough facts, enough luck.

About the Author

Daniel Silva is also the author of the bestselling novels The Unlikely Spy, The Mark of the Assassin, The Marching Season, The Kill Artist, The English Assassin and The Confessor.

Industry Reviews

"The Messenger's blood-spattered, true-to-life backdrop pumps up this thrill ride of a story, but its underlying messages about fundamentalism, revenge, oil dependency and cultural differences are what will keep you awake at night."--USA Today "Exhibits Silva's usual intelligence, style and research...Silva uncorks another, even more dramatic climax."--The Washington Post Book World

"The enigmatic Gabriel Allon remains one of the most intriguing heroes of any thriller series, a wonderfully nuanced, endlessly fascinating creation...Entertaining and well written."--The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Silva [is] the modern-day Robert Ludlum, and his lead character Gabriel Allon should remind readers of Jason Bourne (without the amnesia, of course)."--Florida Times-Union

"Gripping details...Silva maintains tension and suspense with a story that travels all over the world."--The Denver Post

"So entertaining... a spider web of a plot."--The Baltimore Sun
