Week of February 4, 2013

In THE FALLEN ANGEL by Daniel Silva, Gabriel Allon is called on to investigate the death of a beautiful woman in Rome. He fights against police who have already ruled her death a suicide and the Vatican’s “don’t ask too many questions” rule to uncover the truth. But along the way, he must also penetrate a criminal smuggling network and encounter an old enemy plotting revenge that puts himself and those he holds dear on the razor’s edge of danger.
