Publisher's Summary

Gabriel Allon, art restorer and spy, is about to face the greatest challenge of his life.Allon is recovering from his grueling showdown with a Palestinian master terrorist, when terrorism comes to find him once again. An al-Qaeda suspect is killed in London, and photographs are found on his computer - photographs that lead Israeli intelligence to suspect that al-Qaeda is planning one of its most audacious attacks ever, straight at the heart of the Vatican.Allon warns his old friend, Monsignor Luigi Donati, the pope's private secretary, and rushes to Rome to assist in security. But what neither he nor Donati knows is that the Vatican has been thoroughly penetrated. An extraordinary enemy walks among them...and he's just getting started.In the days and weeks to come, Allon and his colleagues will find themselves in a deadly duel of wits against one of the most dangerous men in the world - and a hunt that will take them across Europe to the Caribbean and back.But for them, there may simply not be enough of anything: enough time, enough facts, enough luck. All Allon can do is set his trap - and hope that he is not the one caught in it.

Well worth the time

I confess that I am a real fan of Daniel Silva and his main character Gabriel Allon and his mentor Ari Sharon. I have read several in the series and think this one is the best yet. While I thought the Messenger started a little slowly, Silva made up for it soon and the plot thickened quickly. The characters blended together into a real mosiac of excitement and suspense. The plot turns came fast and furious and I hated to put it down. You can't go wrong with The Messenger.

Couldn't Turn It Off

Great action and detail. Some situations were predictable, but I had to sit in my car and finish before I could get out. I've been a big fan of Vince Flynn's action/spy novels and his lead character Mitch Rapp. Now I've found another great source for this genre and another great lead character, Gabriel Allon. I'm downloading my next Daniel Silva now. The narrater did a very good job also.
