Sent to Vienna to authenticate a painting, the art restorer and sometime spy Gabriel Allon is sidetracked by a photograph that throws his world upside-down. Could it really be the face of a man who during the last days of World War II had brutalized his mother on the Death March from Auschwitz? Questions abound when Allon, driven by an intensity he had not felt in years, begins to investigate, discovering in the process that the hunt for one man is a hunt for many-and a network of unimaginable evil spanning sixty years.

As entertaining and enjoyable a Silva effort as usual with heavy emphasis on the historical aspects and residue of the Holocaust.

I liked it. Silva uses Allon and his story to discuss how Nazi's criminals were helped by many - including the Catholic Church and the governments of Argentina, Europe and the US -to escape justice after the war. It's sad but true.
