Portrait of an Unknown Woman, by Daniel Silva. Fans of Daniel Silva will not be disappointed! Although Gabriel Allon has at long last severed ties with Israeli intelligence and settled quietly in Venice with his wife and children, his retirement does not last long. He is once again drawn back in when an eccentric London art dealer asks Gabriel to investigate the circumstances surrounding the rediscovery and sale of a centuries-old painting. As one reviewer put it “…the tone of this book is wittier, funnier, and more sensual, but don’t be fooled.”
Middle Grade Winner!
