The Rembrandt Affair
The latest in Daniel Silva’s Gabriel Allon series is the best one yet. Our hero — the deadly yet sensitive, larger than life but understated master art restorer — is called upon to recover a long missing Rembrandt painting. The story takes us to England, France, Argentina, Holland, Switzerland, and Washington D.C. as we discover the provenance of this work of art. The story is set in the present, when priceless paintings are going missing from museums and private collections, never to be found again. From young, innocent victims of the Holocaust to charismatic, duplicitous international businessmen, we read about the many personalities involved in the history of this lost Rembrandt. Silva’s elegant writing is a special treat for spy thriller fans, who will also learn about the art of restoration, the historical contexts of this story, and world current events. Silva elucidates the truth in today’s incredibly complicated international schemes and has this reader hoping that a real Gabriel Allon is out there serving justice! May Daniel Silva never tire of Gabriel Allon’s crucial mission.
