A leading terrorism analyst is found brutally murdered in Amsterdam. The Dutch police believe it is the work of a deranged extremist - but others know better. Gabriel Allon - art-restorer, spy, assassin - is called in to make discreet inquiries. It would seem that the dead man was close to uncovering the plans of a major terrorist operation - a new threat which no-one could have predicted. The trail leads to London, when a young woman vanishes...She is the daughter of the American Ambassador - and goddaughter of the President of the United States - and the kidnappers' demands are at once horrifically clear and clearly impossible to meet. The President turns to Allon, a man whose abilities he has depended on before...Allon soon finds himself in a desperate search for the missing woman, and those responsible - but the truth, when he finds it, is not what he expects. In fact, it is one that will shake him, and many others, to the core. Intense and provocative, filled with breathtaking double and triple turns of plot, "The Secret Servant" is not only a fast-paced international thriller, but an exploration of some of the most daunting questions of our time.Read Less

I am on book 4 of the 8-book Allon serial, and am fascinated by this wordsmith, researcher author. He uses real names, places and history in his spectacular novels. I am not capable of praising his works sufficiently.
