Would that we could get this fictional character to head our CIA, wouldn't that be great? Guess we have to let him work his magic with Mossad. The writing is if anything better and the plot as always topical-what's not to like. One thing does stand out, our hero Gabriel is a really lousy husband and his wife is going to have to do some serious butt-kicking to shape him up.

The Silva books have been becoming a formula, but I found this one an exception and worth another look. Was wondering how Silva was going to deal with Gabriel becoming chief and he handled it in a way that is believable. Reading it was like sitting down and being engrossed in the lifes of old friends and I did not want it to end. A great read I could not put down.

Silva, like all my favorite authors (Connelly, Sandford, Berenson) has reoccurring characters who jump fully fleshed out immediately upon reading their names. It gives me a feeling of familiarity that I believe is hard to do for a writer.
And he sets the scenes so realistically that I can feel the cool evening breeze coming through the olive trees.
This is one of Silva's better books.
