I read almost all of this book on a plane ride to California and like all of the previous entries, I loved every word. The Gabriel Allon series is my favorite going, and each novel feels like it is better than the last. I enjoy the recurring characters, and I also enjoy how the story of the characters moves along from one book to the next at a realistic pace. This particular story involves tracking down a kidnapped girl, and the international intrigue and twists and turns make the book classic Daniel Silva. Waiting for the price to drop on the next in the series and I will be caught up.
