Review by Lori
I am a full out Gabriel Allon fan, so considering I was very disappointed with the last book, it is a pleasure to assert that Daniel Silva has once again wrote a timely, engaging, intriguing excellent novel that the reader will surely enjoy. Although the novel packs a hefty punch at 484 pages, it is well worth the investment of time and money. I never once, felt the book moved slowly or rushed through the pages trying to finish. As a plot, the Rembrandt Affair is interesting, intriguing and politically relevant. The usual cast of characters return, but this time instead of one of the side characters being the center of attention, it is all Gabriel and that is as it should be. An interesting premise about stolen WWII artwork, two Nazi survivors with very different backgrounds but scarred nonetheless, murder, spying, international intrigue and a current day subplot make this novel not only a page turner, but a classic. Really enjoyed this effort by Silva and I am a long time fan having read all of the books in this series.
