The sins of the past reverberate into the present, in an extraordinary novel by the new master of international suspense. 

It was an ordinary-looking photograph. Just the portrait of a man. But the very sight of it chilled Allon to the bone. 

Art restorer and sometime spy Gabriel Allon is sent to Vienna to authenticate a painting, but the real object of his search becomes something else entirely: to find out the truth about the photograph that has turned his world upside down. It is the face of the unnamed man who brutalized his mother in the last days of World War II, during the Death March from Auschwitz. But is it really the same one? If so, who is he? How did he escape punishment? Where is he now? 

Fueled by an intensity he has not felt in years, Allon cautiously begins to investigate; but with each layer that is stripped away, the greater the evil that is revealed, a web stretching across sixty years and thousands of lives. Soon, the quest for one monster becomes the quest for many. And the monsters are stirring... 

Rich with sharply etched characters and prose, and a plot of astonishing intricacy, this is an uncommonly intelligent thriller by one of our very best writers. Download and start listening now!

    " No one beats Daniel Silva when it comes to international espionage and intrigue. And for those who enjoy fiction based on actual events and real places, you will certainly enjoy Silva's trilogy: The Confessor, The Rembrandt Affair, and A Death in Vienna. "

    " My favorite of the Allon series so far. The story is well written covering lots of historical mysteries of the holocaust. Seemed like lots of character development, even for minor players but still a good read. "

    " Daniel Silva is a great vacation read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Marlo | 1/21/2014

    " This is not my normal go-to genre. I usually lean toward historical fiction and biographies, so maybe it was the historical elements of this novel that made it so interesting to me. The thriller/spy factor was amped up by the interesting Nazi/Jew history that was woven into the story. It was compelling. I realize that this book is part of a series, but it was the first Silva book I've read. I plan on reading more. "
