In Munich, writer Benjamin Stern entered his flat to find a man leafing through his research, and said, “Who the hell are you?” In answer, the man shot him.

In Venice, art restorer Gabriel Allon applied a dab of paint carefully to the Bellini, then saw the boy approaching with a piece of paper in his hand. With a sigh, the Mossad agent began to pack his brushes.

In Vatican City, the pope known as Paul VII paced in his garden, thinking about the things he knew and the enemies he would make. In the weeks to come, the journeys of all these men will come together, dominated by intrigue and stalked by death, in the shadow of the Confessor.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Accomplished…Elegantly written…A compelling piece of fiction, one that manages to be both superior entertainment and a hard look at serious issues.”

    Washington Post

  • “A shrewd, timely thriller that opens the heard of the Vatican…Many scenes of thumping action, passionate words, hot pursuit, and cold revenge…It’s a different kind of thrill than you might expect from a commercial thriller, but it certainly leaves a tingle.”

    Chicago Tribune

  • “Silva writes thrillers that are intelligent and action-packed. In…Gabriel Allon, he has invented a compelling character and put him in an enthralling plot.”

    Rocky Mountain News

  • “Another riveting tale.”

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

  • “One of those rare books that sweep you into forgetting to eat or sleep. Daniel Silva has now indisputably joined the ranks of Graham Greene and John le Carré.”


  • “Provocative historical revelations will keep readers enthralled.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Utterly compelling…Silva’s searing portrait of a church under siege by its own corrupt bureaucracy and corporate publicity machine is particularly resonant. An uncommonly intelligent thriller told with elegant precision.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Silva, who here loads new excitement into the word thriller, will touch nerves with this hypothetical exploration of the Church’s silence on these topics. The Vatican, Venice, and Munich are perfectly drawn, as the settings for these dark acts of ambition, greed, and revenge, as are the characters, whom you’d scarcely believe live only on the page.”

    Library Journal

  • “Another polished and entertaining thriller from the prolific Silva…powered by steady pacing, keen detail, and a strong, ironic finish.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A 2004 CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Finalist
  • A New York Times Bestseller
