One of the best thrillers I have read this year. Page turner in step with today’s political scene.
Daniel Silva always delivers. It’s 1:10 am because I couldn’t put this book down to go to sleep. Another Gabriel Allen winner. This is my favorite author & I have all of his books.
Excellent mystery with accurate description of a major historical event. Fast read with twists that are not confusing.

I love Daniel Silva’s work, but this one was a bit tedious and sometimes hard to follow. Usually I can finish a Silva in two to three days. The Other Women took three weeks. I did love Madam Bettencourt, however. So charming and yet so sly. Looking forward to next years work. Still and always a fan of Gabriel Allon.
Looked forward to reading Daniel Silva’s new book but was totally disappointed with the weak plot and slow pace. It was so predictable, even the jabs that Silva took at the U.S. President. Not sure I’ll bother buying his next book.
I think the Allon books had become a bit formulaic. This one is different and more interesting exploring in a fictional way the Kim Philby story.
Too much social media, not enough fidelity to flow of Gabriel’s life.
Well written, page turner.
Another good book in the series. I can’t give it 5 stars due to Silva’s words about American politics. It’s obvious where he stands on our current situation and he made that clear in his typical mainstream news media remarks. Leave that out and it would have been a 5 star rating.
Good book with lots of action and a somewhat surprising ending. Silva books are all well written but the spy plots do not vary over his many books.

Implausible but an intoxicating read. Well paced but patient enough in little details to make the real story of Kim Philby come alive. Ideological betrayal motivation that
