Publisher's Summary

Joining the ranks of Graham Greene and John le Carre, the newest master of international suspense, Daniel Silva has crafted a novel of astonishing intricacy and intelligence. Sent to Vienna to authenticate a painting, the art restorer and sometime spy Gabriel Allon is sidetracked by a photograph that throws his world upside-down. Could it really be the face of a man who during the last days of World War II had brutalized his mother on the Death March from Auschwitz?
Questions abound when Allon, driven by an intensity he had not felt in years, begins to investigate, discovering in the process that the hunt for one man is a hunt for many-and a network of unimaginable evil spanning sixty years.

Classic thriller

This book has a very slow start and I almost gave up completely but perservering I found it to be riviting. The characters are complex and believable and the plot delicately balances between the present and the holocaust without overdoing it. It suprised me and I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys thrillers and spies.
