The Fallen Angel

“He was below average in height – five foot eight, perhaps, but no more – and had the spare physique of a cyclist.  The face was long and narrow at the chin, with wide cheekbones and a slender nose that looked as though it had been carved from wood.  The eyes were an unnatural shade of green”

The Rembrandt Affair

Super spy Gabriel Allon is back!  When a not so famous painting by an extremely famous artist (venture to guess who?) is stolen and a man is murdered Allon is called upon by a friend to investigate.  The Rembrandt Affair begins like a typical thriller as Allon enters the world of art theft, murder, and powerful people. 

Author Daniel Silva does not let his hero relax very long as Gabriel Allon and his wife are nearly blown up when they travel to Argentina to talk to a man who may have some information they need.  The Rembrandt Affair digs into deep dark secrets of World War II and those who survived heinous crimes and those who perpetrated them.
