Another thrilling Gabriel Allon tale which incudes another pairing with the English assassin, Christopher Keller. The historical vein now stretches into Northern Ireland and Silva handles it with his effortless style and panache.

Too many characters to keep track of and too much detail regarding street names, vicinities, etc.

Daniel Silva’s The English Spy grabs you immediately. Though it is the 15th book in the Gabriel Allon series, do not hesitate picking up this book as your introduction to Gabariel Allon. Silva provides each character’s history and their connection to each other by illustrating incidences and stituations leaving the reader with strong visual impressions. Silva is on the same par as John le Carre- the spy riddle master.

this is a bridge for Gabriel's career to the spy head office. I enjoyed the read, wish the book was a bit longer to fill out the final revenge scenes. I agree with pw1040 below. The references to current political events makes the story line that much more gripping.

Not one of Siva's best works. The ending was disappointing.

Michael Connelly just gets better and better.

Although primarily a Harry Bosch story, Harry does interact with Mickey Haller as he moves from police detective to private detective, working for, you guessed it, Mickey.

We struggle as Harry struggles with working for the other side, his thoughts about the client's innocence as well as the development of his personal life.

A good read -- don't miss it!

I'm a big fan of Silva and his Allon and Keller characters. However, I don't think this was one of his best efforts. The book was entertaining but the plot felt unfocused and not as well thought-out as that of previous books

She is an iconic member of the British Royal Family, beloved for her beauty and charitable works, resented by her former husband and his mother, the Queen of England. When a bomb explodes aboard her holiday yacht, however, British intelligence turns to one man to track down her killer: legendary spy and assassin Gabriel Allon. Gabriel Allon is soon on the tail of Eamon Quinn, a master bomb maker and mercenary of death who sells his services to the highest bidder. Why would Quinn kill a member of the royal family, however, and draw unwanted attention to himself? Allon seeks the aid of Christopher Keller, a British commando turned professional assassin who knows Quinn's murderous handiwork all too well. The two are up against a cabal of evil with an intricate plan for revenge.

This is the best Gabriel Allon book in several outings. His previous several books seemed somewhat over the top.

With Chiara, the wife of Allon, having given birth to twins, and Allon, due to take over as chief of the Office, one wonders where this series is going next.

Silva once again comes up with another superb Gabriel Allon thriller. Many writers decline after a few books but Silva is still definitely at the top of his game.

Due to the high numbers of innocent deaths, Silva's stories have hollow conclusions for this listener. 4 of 10 stars
