Description
Tightly written thrillers like The Marching Season have made best-selling novelist Daniel Silva a favorite of readers everywhere. In The Kill Artist, he paints an absorbing portrait of a reluctant hero's attempt to thwart an old enemy to preserve a precarious peace. After the assassination of his wife and son, Gabriel Allon retires from his brutal anti-terrorist career and loses himself in his previous cover job: art restoration. But when Tariq al-Hourani, the Palestinian terrorist responsible for his family's death, begins a killing spree designed to destroy Middle East peace talks, Gabriel once again slips into the shadowy world of international intrigue. In a global game of hide-and-seek, the motives of Gabriel and Tariq soon become more personal than political. Filled with vivid action and a fascinating cast of supporting characters, The Kill Artist delivers pulse-pounding suspense, carried to a startling climax by the tension-packed narration of George Guidall.

        Starred review from December 4, 2000
        The tragedy of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and despair of its resolution provide the backdrop for Silva's (The Unlikely Spy) heart-stopping, complex yarn of international terrorism and intrigue. Israeli master spy Ari Shamron sets an intricate plot in motion to lure deadly Palestinian assassin Tariq al-Hourani into his net. Art restorer Gabriel Allon, a former Israeli agent whose family was killed by Tariq, is lured back into the fray by Shamron and teamed with Jacqueline Delacroix, a French supermodel/Israeli secret agent whose grandparents died in the Holocaust. Gabriel sets up in London to monitor Yusef, Tariq's fellow terrorist and confidant. Jacqueline is assigned to seduce him in hopes of intercepting Tariq, who is devising a plan to kill Israel's prime minister during peace talks with Arafat in New YorkDand he has similar plans for Gabriel. The tortuous plot leading the various parties to the showdown in Manhattan is a thrilling roller-coaster ride, keeping readers guessing until the mind-bending conclusion. Sensitive to both sides of the conflict, the narrative manages to walk a political tightrope while examining the motivations of Palestinians and Israelis alike. The duplicity and secret financial juggling to keep government hands clean is personified in publishing mogul Benjamin Stone, who backs the Israeli efforts. He is just one of many larger-than-life characters (both real and invented) thrown into the mixDArafat himself has a tense encounter with Tariq that underscores the volatility of terrorist loyalty. An array of global locales adds to the complexity and authenticity of the dizzying, cinematic plot. (Dec.) Forecast: The popular success of Silva's first two novels and the timeliness of this one suggest escalating sales. Random is backing the title with major ad/promo, including a six-city author tour.

      • content: Gabriel Allon left Israeli intelligence after the murders of his wife and child at the hands of Tariq, a Palestinian assassin. When Tariq's activities threaten the Mideast Peace Talks, Gabriel returns to his old life--and every move he makes brings him closer to a death trap set by Tariq. Jason Culp's Palestinian and Israeli accents are a bit thick, but they are only a small distraction in this abridgment, which is heavy on narration. Culp effectively reveals insights into the minds of the characters, a must for Daniel Silva's novels. The insights into life in Israel and the characters of the Palestinian territories are well thought out, but their unintended connection to recent events may be unsettling. J.A.S.

      • content: In light of the events of last year, books about terrorists might seem pass��, yet somehow Daniel Silva's THE KILL ARTIST avoids that fate. Instead, this marvelous story about a covert Israeli attempt by retired spy Gabriel Allon to assassinate Tariq al-Hourania, a Palestinian terrorist who killed Allon's wife and children, seems to jump from today's front pages. George Guidall's reading adds subtlety and personality to the novel. The emotional portrait he creates of Allon, who leaves his work as an art restorer to find the terrorist, brings out the best of Silva's tautly written novel. As always, Guidall's preparation is obvious, ensuring that he never mispronounces a name or word, no matter what the language. D.J.S. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine
