The Fallen Angel: A Novel (Gabriel Allon)

The Fallen Angel - Daniel Silva I really, really have to use this review to urge anyone that hasn't discovered the Gabriel Allon series to start now. Go back to the beginning, read them all and get up to date with this next instalment - you won't be disappointed.

Daniel Silva's style of writing is akin to literary thrillers - his books (and this one is no exception) are fast-paced, with plenty of action to keep the die-hard thriller readers happy, but the character development over the course of the novels is astonishing; the descriptions of European cities, architecture and art breathtaking, and underpinning the lot are well-honed writing skills.

One to aspire to.
