After journalist Aleksandr Viktorovich Lubin is assassinated by an agent of the siloviki, the former KGB men who now run Russia, Boris Ostrovsky, the editor in chief, of the Moskovsy Gazeta ...one of the country's last investigative weeklies and ...a persistent stone in the shoe of the Kremlin, contacts the Israeli embassy in Rome with a message and a request. "He said he had an important message to pass along regarding a grave threat to the security of the West and to the State of Israel," and he requsted to give that information only to Gabriel Allon. Before he can give the message to Allon, he is poisoned by the siloviki, and dies in Allon's arms in an enclave of St. Peter's Basilica, St. Peter's Square. Ari Shamron knows that Ostrovsky's information concerns an existenial threat to Israel and pulls Gabriel out of his honeymoon and away from his latest art restoration.
Allon travels to Moscow to meet with the new acting editor in chief, of the Moskovsy Gazeta, Olga Sukhova. While there he follows Moscow Rules, "Assume every room is bugged and every telephone call monitored. Assume every person you encounter is under opposition control. And don't look back. You are never completely alone." Although he follows the rules, Gabriel ends up being questioned and beaten in the notorious Lubyanka. He has, however, discovered that the source of Ostrovsky's information is the wife of the ruthless Russian oligarch and gun-runner, Ivan Borisovich Kharkov, Elena. Adrian Carter's NSA intercepts reveal that Elena covets art by Mary Cassatts and agrees to send Sarah Bancroft, now a CIA officer, to work with Allon.
The operation becomes one of the most complex and difficult of Allon's career.

This book involves Russian arms dealers, and the Israeli art restorer / secret agent Gabriel Allon's efforts to interrupt a weapons sale to terrorists. Not my favorite of the Daniel Silva series of Gabriel Allon stories, and if I had to recommend one of this series, I'd suggest any of his earlier books. Perhaps it's because I'm getting used to his style, but I didn't find the characters as compelling or as believable as in other books.

I decided to use my time at the beach to revisit a pleasure of mine, the beach read thriller. I have previously read the first 7 books in this series, as well as 11, 12, and 13 for some odd reason, so I saw that this books, number 8 in the series, was available and jumped on it. My rating is not entirely accurate, it was at least a 3.5 if not a 4 star book, but I am grading on a curve this year and so "liked it" seemed to sum it up. I loved most of this book but did not enjoy the patented "end of book DANGER sequence" with the miraculous escape. Look, I know it is going to happen, but I still find it annoying. Also, there are times that Mr. Silva seems to lean very much to the right, even including the phrase "leftist terrorists" at one point. Really? And when he touches on the horror that is holocaust denial he seems to ignore the right wing white nationalist groups that champion it. I should probably just ignore that stuff. Reading this now was very interesting because Mr. Silva clearly despises the Russian regime and its autocratic head, Mr. Putin. I could not agree more. I wonder if he would see the absolute similarity to the current head of the U.S.? You could just change a couple of words and it would all describe the soon to be ex-President. As he asks, “I wonder what your mother would have said about a leader who fills young minds with paranoid fantasies about others plotting to steal what is rightly theirs." Indeed. So this was fun and enjoyable and for around 80% of the book was 4 star material. I still enjoy the ancillary parts of Gabriel Allon's character and all the parts about art and restoration are great. All in all this book was what I chose it to be, empty calories for my vacation. ( )

A pretty good spy/thriller novel about new Russia, Israel, US/UK/FR, and the Vatican. I read this book standalone, although it's #8 of a series. Still made sense due to context within the book. Overall it was like a fictionalized version of Red Notice, although with a fairly comedic level of Mossad/Israel-worship. The audiobook version was particularly well done. I'd probably read more in the series if they had more complex characters and more IC/tradecraft/technology elements, although there were enough interesting "fact based" plot details to make this book an enjoyable read on its own. Would make an amazing movie. ( )

In the hands of a less skilled author, Gabriel's unexpected detours would simply provide page-turning dramatic tension, a fine addition to any spy novel. But under Silva, one of fiction's best espionage authors, those actions are more than just a simple plot device.
 
Daniel Silva’s espionage thrillers have plenty of high-concept plot twists such as terrorists, bombings, national security and the world in chaos. But one of the real reasons that Silva’s novels have found a resonance with readers – and a secure place on best-sellers lists – is the author’s ability to put a human face on these big-picture themes.
 
Silva employs realpolitik in his this novel, bringing his insight into Russia’s current state as an underlying theme to the thrills of his plot, which includes swaying the wife of a Russian super-thug to turn on him. It is this aura of real-world menace that gives “Moscow Rules” its true flavor of suspense; that and Silva’s taut, page-turning style and quick ability to create solid characters with few words.
 
OK, it sounds like your run-of-the-mill thriller. But Silva packs his pages with detailed tradecraft — and with local color that lives and breathes of such settings as the French Riviera, London, Paris and (of course, given the title) Moscow. Then there's the character of Allon, an interesting man who has stayed interesting through a whole string of thrillers...Put "Moscow Rules" atop your summer beach book list.
 
Silva’s protagonist is the colorful, intriguing center of this spy series. A reluctant hero who has already lost his first wife and child to save the world once, he fears he could be risking his art, his life–everything, all over again. Expertly written and plotted, with lots of suspense and a charming hero, this mystery entertains.
