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. ( )

Gabriel Allon, art restorer and Israeli intelligence officer, has just gotten married to Chiara and is on his honeymoon in Italy. He's busy restoring a painting under an alias, when his employers call, asking for a favor. It seems a Russian journalist, Aleksandr Lubin, wants to tell Gabriel why one of his fellow journalists has been killed. Before Lubin is able to pass on his important information he is murdered just feet away from Gabriel by what is obviously a skilled assassin.

Lubin was on a mission to expose Ivan Kharkov, the son of a senior KGB officer and all around bad guy. When the Soviet Union began to crumble, Kharkov amassed a fortune by arms dealing. He became one of the newly minted billionaires of the new Kremlin. His holdings included shipping and air freight with branches reaching across the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Lubin was investigating the rumor that Kharkov was amassing dangerous arms to sell to al-Qaeda in order that they could continue their assaults on the United States and their allies. His source was Elena Kharkov, Ivan's wife. Gabriel summons up an Israeli investigative team and he and his fellow agents must persuade Kharkov 19s wife to betray her husband.

Gabriel Allon can sometimes be a little sensitive, and emotionally torn but just when he appears to be infallible, he and his team slip up a bit, allowing the reader to continue to enjoy the chase. I love espionage novels and I think Silva is a master at this genre. Moscow Rules is both a fast-past thriller with all the appropriate twists and turns and a fascinating look at the inner workings of Russian society today. ( )

Book was very good; abridged audio book, not-so-much
Plot is almost lost in this rendition
Best you read the book or listen to an unabridged version ... ( )

I really enjoyed this spy novel - it moves along nicely with sufficient twists and turns. I enjoyed it so much that I went to the library to get the next in the series. The characters are diverse and interesting - and the author reveals just enough about his hero - Gabriel Allon - to keep you wanting more! ( )

Well written, but similar structure to the previous books in the series. The real-life issue this time is the sale of weapons to dangerous governments and terrorist groups. A "respected commentator" does note that the deal that Gabriel Allon et al. are trying to stop would result in "a tiny fraction of those killed by [his] guns and bullets in Africa alone." (p. 414) ( )

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.
