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.
"The way Silva resolves his plot will keep readers right where he wants them: on the edges of their seats." ( Publishers Weekly)

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.

Wonderful story, subpar narrator
If you could sum up The Messenger in three words, what would they be?
Another great story.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
As always with Daniel Silva's books, the characters are complicated, troubled souls, doing the best they can in a confusing and violent world. And yet, at times their darker sides get the best of them. As in life, sometimes there are no simple answers.
How could the performance have been better?
The auditor sounded like a newscaster with breaking headlines or a preacher at the pulpit. The story needs to be told with much more subtlety.
