Gabriel Allon must travel the world to track down a painting worth killing for in this #1 New York Times bestseller.

Having retreated to the windswept cliffs of Cornwall with his beautiful wife, Gabriel Allon's seclusion is interrupted by an eccentric London art dealer with a problem. An art restorer has been brutally murdered and a portrait by Rembrandt stolen—and only Gabriel can find it. But as he pursues the masterpiece across the globe, Gabriel discovers there are deadly secrets connected to the painting—and even deadlier men who will do anything to keep them.


  • Repetitive

    How many times we have to read about a beautiful intelligent woman put in harms way and miraculously saved? This plot line is getting very tired. I am sure the series is very profitable and there is no desire to kill it, but is suffering from consumption of the imagination and in slow death mode.
  • Exciting & fascinating Read!

    As a former US case officer, I'm continually surprised at Daniel Silva's expertise in real world espionage trade craft. The backdrop of Gabriel Allon's non official cover as an art restorer engaging in very "black" clandestine operations is unique and makes for a compelling backdrop to his complex and highly readable stories! I'm looking forward to reading Silva's next book, "The Heist" coming out in July, 2014.

    It's always nice when the good guys are very clever and win against the odds, but it's the author's insights the bring the rating to five stars.

  • Rembrandt Affair

    By Ivyland Bob
    On the edge of your seat good; tears at the end of the novel; a 5-star read and masterpiece like Gallon himself.
  • Fabulously entertaining

    Good read
  • The Rembrandt Affair

    By Peach E Keen
    This is the only novel I have read by this author. I expected more than I got. I would have edited it down by half. I am only an average student of current affairs but I was fairly familiar with topics that the author tells us he spent so much time researching. Listen up IRS, the travel and stays at four and five star hotels was necessary to paint a vivid picture and tax deductible.
  • Another great story

    By Timothy Thomas
    Daniel Silva never fails to bring the reader into the story and feel like they were there during all of the events as a silent watcher.
  • Thrilling finish

    By njshah
    The book starts off somewhat slow but accelerates towards the middle and never looks back. Loved the plot and the author's ability to weave so many interesting sub stories into one book. Definite a great read.
