Publisher Description

Once a key operative in secret Israeli-intelligence missions, Gabriel Allon is on the run from his past, assuming a quiet life as a meticulous restorer of priceless works of art. But now he is being called back into the game. The agent with whom he is teamed hides behind her own beautiful mask–as a French fashion model. Their target: a cunning terrorist on one last killing spree, a Palestinian zealot named Tariq who played a dark part in Gabriel’s past. What begins as a manhunt turns into a globe-spanning duel fueled by political intrigue and deep personal passions. In a world where secrecy and duplicity are absolute, revenge is a luxury no man can afford–and the greatest masterpiece of all.

"I've identified another multiple volume series to continue. The Kill Artist is the first in a series of Gabriel Allon suspense thrillers. Gabriel's cover job is that of an art restorer. So there are multiple worlds: Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the art world, multiple national intelligence systems. Plus spies and counter spies."

    " The reviews for this book were not as glowing as those for later books in the series, but I still figured I should read the first book first. If the other books are better than The Kill Artist, I'm excited to have found a new series! "

    " I liked the book, and have read one other Gabriel Allon book in addition to this one. They're easy reads and due to my interest in art, I like the idea of his being an art restorer in addition to an Israeli agent! "

    " The beginning of the Gabriel Allon novels, explaining why the former Israeli secret service agent left the service to become an art restorer in Europe and how he got talked into returning to the service for "one last job." Allon is a sympathetic, intelligent character. "

    " Gabriel Allon is half James Bond, half Jack Bauer, but he isn't nearly as cool as either. He works as an undercover Israeli intelligence officer with a troubled past. The action is fast-paced and the plot is interesting. I'm going to move right on the next book in the series. "
