With this I think I've read all the Allon novels. While good they fit a common story line. Allon is trying to live his own life. Someone,usually a female, gets in trouble and only Allon can save her and Isreal and the rest of the Western world. He brings in his usual crew, with Sharom looking over everybodys shoulder, and saves the day. Reminds me of Superman in my youth. (He was Jewish too!!)
I read Portrait of the Spy first before taking on The Defector and it was nice reading about some of the underlying story outlined in the latter book. Yet another great Gabriel Allon spy book with insight into the relationships between Gabriel, his wife, his team, and his international connections. I liked seeing how his view differ from book to book, the way it evolves was an interest point for me. The storyline is believable although some fantastic points were there that seemed to accentuate the status of certain characters. I enjoyed the Russian aspect of the story, the ruthlessness of the bad guy, and how the good guys make it in the end. Overall an enjoyable book, hard to put down at times, recommend if your up for a little espionage, spy novel.
Another excellent read. Silva is one of the top espionage writers on the current charts. You won't be disappointed.
Very entertaining and much better than "Moscow Rules"
An excellent book in the Gabriel Allon series.
