    “A very wise man once told me that hope is not an acceptable strategy when lives are at stake”This is the 11th novel in Mr Silva’s Gabriel Allon series and although some of the books are formulaic I find if I read one every so often I don’t get too annoyed with itIn “Portrait of a Spy” Silva has strong words for a Europe that he clearly thinks has been foolish in its handling of Islamic terrorism

    I started reading this current book in the Gabriel Allon series while vacating in the beautiful beaches of Santorini on my mini honeymoon Soon enough I was taken away from the clear water and the mesmerizing view and thrown into the mayhem of suicide bombings executed by a new terror organization in the middle eastIf you read my former reviews about Silva’s books you know I have a soft spot for Gabriel Allon

    Not exactly a page turner There is action in the beginning and end In between you have endless dialogue interior monologue chapters that plod along until you're ready to scream Characters are paper thin I mean that literally since they are little than names on a page It's clear from the outset that American intelligence agencies are inept an

    I am resuming reading Gabriel Allon after a break where I was reading only indie authors for a month What a relief to come back to something familiar and well written The story is similar to its predecessors and
