Gabriel, about to become father of twins (as well as the leader of Mossad, Israel's feared and famously efficient spy network), embarks upon a world-spanning itinerary to find a long-missing Caravaggio, extract billions of dollars from a ruthless political family, and bring to justice the killer of the art dealer Isherwood's future is threated by. Complicated? You bet, it's one of Silva's specialities: he puts his characters through the wringer, over and over, and with can't-put-it-down results. It's a 4, and you'll probably give it a 5, but the fairy-tale quality - things always meshing, people always being where Gabriel needs them to be - of this one caught me. Maybe I was having a bad-reading day.
