Gabriel Allon, master art restorer and assassin, returns
in a spellbinding new novel from the #1 New York
Over the course of a brilliant career, Daniel Silva has
established himself as "the gold standard" of thriller
writers (Dallas Morning News) who "has hit upon the perfect
formula to keep espionage-friendly fans' fingers glued to
his books, turning pages in nearly breathless anticipation"
(BookPage). But now, having reached "the pinnacle of
world-class spy thriller writing" (The Denver Post), Silva
has produced his most extraordinary novel to date - a tale
of greed, passion, and murder spanning more than half a
century, centered on an object of haunting beauty.
Two families, one terrible secret, and a painting to die
Determined to sever his ties with the Office, Gabriel Allon
has retreated to the windswept cliffs of Cornwall with his
beautiful Venetian-born wife Chiara. But once again his
seclusion is interrupted by a visitor from his tangled past:
the endearingly eccentric London art dealer, Julian
Isherwood. As usual, Isherwood has a problem. And it is one
only Gabriel can solve.
In the ancient English city of Glastonbury, an art restorer
has been brutally murdered and a long-lost portrait by
Rembrandt mysteriously stolen. Despite his reluctance,
Gabriel is persuaded to use his unique skills to search for
the painting and those responsible for the crime. But as he
painstakingly follows a trail of clues leading from
Amsterdam to Buenos Aires and, finally, to a villa on the
graceful shores of Lake Geneva, Gabriel discovers there are
deadly secrets connected to the painting. And evil men
Before he is done, Gabriel will once again be drawn into a
world he thought he had left behind forever, and will come
face to face with a remarkable cast of characters: a
glamorous London journalist who is determined to undo the
worst mistake of her career, an elusive master art thief who
is burdened by a conscience, and a powerful Swiss
billionaire who is known for his good deeds but may just be
behind one of the greatest threats facing the world.
Filled with remarkable twists and turns of plot, and told
with seductive prose, The Rembrandt Affair is more
than just summer entertainment of the highest order. It is a
timely reminder that there are men in the world who will do
anything for money.
