In light of the events of last year, books about terrorists might seem passé, yet somehow Daniel Silva's THE KILL ARTIST avoids that fate. Instead, this marvelous story about a covert Israeli attempt by retired spy Gabriel Allon to assassinate Tariq al-Hourania, a Palestinian terrorist who killed Allon's wife and children, seems to jump from today's front pages. George Guidall's reading adds subtlety and personality to the novel. The emotional portrait he creates of Allon, who leaves his work as an art restorer to find the terrorist, brings out the best of Silva's tautly written novel. As always, Guidall's preparation is obvious, ensuring that he never mispronounces a name or word, no matter what the language. D.J.S. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 02]
