Art restorer Gabriel Allon makes a welcome return in Silva's tense new thriller. Once again, Allon is driven to his past life as a member of the Israeli Secret Service, when his old comrade Professor Benjamin Stern is brutally murdered. Allon's pursuit of the truth unearths a complex web of murder and intrigue that threatens not only his life, but that of the newly elected Pope. In a race against time, Allon must protect the Pope from 'Leopard'; a cold-blooded hit man hired by underground society 'Crux Vera', whose chilling secrets threaten to destroy the very foundation of the church. As a cat and mouse journey across Europe ensues, the hunters become the hunted and everyone is a target. In a racy plot that unwittingly draws its reader into a world where the boundaries between fact and fiction become blurred, this compelling page-turner is certain to appeal to fans of hard-hitting, modern-day political thrillers.
