Congratulations Lily! Now all you have to do is respond to the email I am about to send within 48 hours with your full name and mailing address and I will send you my copy of Portrait of a Spy!

If you like spys, espionage and twists and turns this book is for you!! Although this is fiction, I know of one event that is described which actually was supposed to happen but thankfully didn't in 2000--I was in Israel at that time with my Mom (she took me there for my 50th birthday)--at the Wailing Wall--And in this day and age I could easily imagine other scenarios that could happen but hopefully won't!! I actually had nightmares after reading this book (Probably because of what almost happened to me in Israel)--no matter-I absolutely loved this book-Daniel Silva is an extraordinary writer!




From the back cover:

It was supposed to be the start of a pleasant weekend for master art restorer and spy Gabriel Allon and his wife Chiara. But a deadly pair of bombings in Paris and Copenhagen has already marred this lovely autumn day. Then, before he can stop a man he suspects is about to launch a third attack in Covent Gardens, Gabriel is knocked to the pavement--and he can only watch helplessly as the nightmare unfolds.

The haunting memory of his failure to stop the massacre of innocents is still fresh when Gabriel is summoned to Washington--and plunged into a deadly confrontation with the new face of global terror. An elusive American born cleric in Yemen--once a paod CIA asset whom Allah has granted "a beautiful and seductive tongue"--stands at the center of the explosive plague of death and destruction. And the worst is yet to come...
