Gabriel Allon, Israeli spy and assassin, is wearied and tired. In the latest book in this series, Gabriel returns to Rome to restore a Caravaggio masterpiece for the Vatican. Before long though, he is summoned by the all-powerful private secretary to the Pope. The broken body of a beautiful woman lies beneath Michelangelo′s magnificent dome. Gabriel is called on to use his matchless talents and experience to quietly pursue the truth — was it suicide, or something more sinister? Once more Gabriel must return to the ranks of his old intelligence service, endangering himself and his loved ones.
