Click for availability and more information The Rembrandt Affair, by Daniel Silva
For the legion of Daniel Silva fans, The Rembrandt Affair continues the terrifically engaging series of books featuring the fictional character Gabriel Allon and displays the high level of reading enjoyment found in his other books. Allon is a very interesting character with a double life - in his "cover" career he is a professional restorer of fine art paintings that masks his other life as an intelligence officer for the Israeli government. As readers of Silva's books featuring Allon know, he manages to become involved in episodes of political and international intrigue. In the Rembrandt Affair, Allon has supposedly retired from his high powered adventures to enjoy life on the English coast with is art work. However, he is recruited to help an old friend find a missing Rembrandt painting. By agreeing to do that seemingly simple task, Allon becomes deeply involved in yet another affair of murder, Middle Eastern politics, corrupt business practices and issues of world-wide security. Several characters have appeared in other Silva books and each contributes key actions to help resolve this crisis. The Rembrandt Affair is fun and highly enjoyable reading. For readers who become fans of Silva, this reviewer encourages they read his other Allon books in order of publication. These titles are held at The Greenwich Library.
