Comment: Gabriel Allon is in Venice when a terrible bombing in Rome leads to a
disturbing personal revelation: the existence of a dossier in the hands of
terrorists that strips away his secrets, lays bare his history. Hastily
recalled home to Israel, drawn once more into the heart of a service he
had once forsaken, Allon finds himself stalking an elusive master
terrorist across a landscape drenched in generations of blood, along a
trail that keeps turning in upon itself, until, finally, he can no longer
be certain who is stalking whom. And when at last the inevitable showdown
comes, it's not Gabriel alone who is threatened with destruction--for it
is not his history alone that has been laid bare.
This is the fifth in the excellent Gabriel Allon series (see sidebar), all of which have received exceptional reviews. Publisher Weekly describers Prince of Fire as a 'passionate, intelligently crafted entry that cements the series' place among today's top spy fiction'.
Coming Soon: A new Gabriel Allon novel, The Messenger (July 25, 2006).
