Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by John Lee

Mystery & Suspense • 10.5 hrs • Unabridged • © 2004

Gabriel Allon, art restorer and sometime Israeli intelligence agent, returns. As the story shifts from Vienna to Rome to Tel Aviv to Buenos Aires, we follow Allon's efforts to thwart a conspiracy between former Nazi SS officers and Vatican officials. It's an intricate plot that is satisfactorily sorted out in the end. John Lee gives a masterful performance, as he did in his reading of Silva's earlier work, The Confessor. All the accents, from Italian to German to Argentine, sound perfect. The individual speech patterns he uses give subtle indications of character. And his pacing is excellent, always in tune with the action. A riveting narration. R.E.K. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
