I have not read this book yet but I have not found a Daniel Silva book I don't love. His stories keep the pages turning and I'm up all night reading.
Thank you Mr Silva

Great World War II Suspense
Silva's first novel is one of my favorite WW II novels. Does a great job of representing characters on both sides of the conflict. The "good guys" have their faults and the "bad guys" have their endearing qualities. Story moves quickly back and forth between all the characters and creates a great deal of suspense for, not only the ultimate conflict , but also each character's personal conflicts. Became a big fan of Silva because of this book and still believe this is his best. Also recommend: The Eagle Has Landed by Jack Higgins, Black Cross by Greg Iles and Wolf's Hour by Robert McCammon.
