Beschreibung

Israeli art restorer and occasional secret agent Gabriel Allon has a problem. A prominent Swiss banker has called him to Switzerland to restore his Raphael. The problem is that Allon finds the banker dead in front of his Raphael, and he's the prime suspect. After some diplomatic intervention, Allon is freed. However, the banker's daughter, wracked by guilt, tells him that her father's cache of French Impressionist paintings, acquired under dubious circumstances during the Second World War, has been stolen by the murderers. Once Allon knows about the banker's wartime misdeeds, he attracts the attention of a secret Swiss organization dedicated to suppressing knowledge of all such crimes, and he is pursued by a shadowy killer known only as "the Englishman."

Hilfreichste

eher schwach - unverarbeitetes Trauma....

Das ist wohl das schwächste Hörbuch das ich in den letzten Jahren gehört habe. Es fehlt der Story an wirklicher Spannung und es scheint, dass der Autor nicht nur sehr oberflächliches Wissen über die Nazi - Zeit hat sondern primär auch ein grobes Problem mit der Schweiz und natürlich speziell mit den Bankern.

Top class spy thriller ...

This book is chronologically the second in the Gabriel Allon series.

Chronological Order:
1. The Kill Artist
2. The English Assassin
3. The Confessor
4. Death in Venice
5. Prince of Fire
6. The Messenger

Unfortunately Audible has 'The Kill Artist' only as abridged version.

Gabriel Allon is an Isreali spy, who also happens to be one of the world's best art restorers. After an anonymous invitation to restore an Old Master painting, Gabriel is swept off to Zurich. Upon entering the house of the requesting person he finds him dead, and not by suicide. What follows, is a gripping tale of cunning, subterfuge, and intelligence throughout Switzerland, Austria, France, Italy, England, Germany, Spain, and even Portugal!

This intelligently written, international espionage thriller, filled with intrigue and vengeance, is as good is it gets. You wont be able to push the pause button!
