Haunted by his failure to stop a suicide bomber in London Gabriel Allon is summoned to Washington and drawn into a confrontation with the new face of global terror At the center of the threat is an American born cleric in Yemen who was once a paid CIA assetGabriel and his team devise a daring plan to destroy the network of death from the inside a gambit fraught with risk both. A very wise man once told me that hope is not an acceptable strategy when lives are at stake This is the 11th novel in Mr Silva s Gabriel Allon series and although some of the books are formulaic I find if I read one every so often I don t get too annoyed with itIn Portrait of a Spy Silva has strong words for a Europe that he clearly thinks has been foolish in its handling of Islamic terrorism I have noticed calling out of Europe pops up in a couple of his book thus far This book was published in 2011 and Silva also takes obvious swipes at President Obama s foreign policy which was decidedly limp wristed during his first term A character says There was a time when novelists wrote narrative and journalists were content to report facts And the facts are uite simple There exists in the world today an organized force that seeks to weaken or even destroy the West through acts of indiscriminate violence This force is a part of a broader radical movement to impose sharia law and restore the Islamic Caliphate And no amount of wishful thinking will make it go away Silva through his characters finds such people perhaps well intentioned but ultimately foolish The author does give the president a redemptive moment in the text however when behind the scenes he makes a decision that does lead to terrorist threats being diminished I should say that Silva never mentions the politicians in his books by name they are not characters per se At least he didn t with Presidents Bush and Obama or the other foreign leaders who make appearances in his texts These fictional tales he weaves are set in and amongst real life events of the early 21st century but they are also somewhat apart from themElements of the text I really enjoyedI enjoy how Silva incorporates the high dollar art world in this series and in this novel and its predecessor particularly I appreciate how evenhanded the Allon series is Silva does not whitewash over the sins of the West or of Israel What he does not do is excuse murderous action towards innocents regardless of who is perpetrating it Portrait of a Spy also has a character from Saudi Arabia named Nadia that I just fell in love with If there are folks like her in the world there is hope for the Middle East yetMy adventures with Mr Allon will continue The series remains solid

    This is another spy novel in the Gabriel Allon series It is excellent like all the others in the series My only complaint is that it is starting to feel a little repetitious Here again Allon sends a willing female into the lion's den of a known terrorist The purpose is to make an identification of the terrorist mastermind in order to ensure that the correct person is assassinated Here the terrorist uses some o

    Silva again justifies my claim that he is today's best writer of international intrigue He is to our world of jihad what Ludlum and Le Carre were to the cold war unrivaled Not only does he write ahead of the headlines but imbues this struggle with courage and character in the face of unspeakable evil Unlike Cla
