A leading terrorism analyst
is found brutally murdered in Amsterdam. The Dutch police
believe it is the work of a deranged extremist - but others
know better. Gabriel Allon - art-restorer, spy, assassin
- is called in to make discreet inquiries. It would seem
that the dead man was close to uncovering the plans of
a major terrorist operation - a new threat which no-one
could have predicted. The trail leads to London, when a
young woman vanishes...
She is the daughter of the American
Ambassador - and goddaughter of the President of the
United States - and the kidnappers' demands are at once
clear and clearly impossible to meet. The President turns
to Allon, a man whose abilities he has depended on before...
Allon soon finds himself in a desperate
search for the missing
woman, and those responsible - but the truth, when he
finds it, is not what he expects. In fact, it is one
shake him, and many others, to the core.
Filled with astounding double and triple
turns of plot, and a final mind-bending sequence that will
leave readers breathless, The Secret Servant is not only
a work of supreme entertainment, but an exploration of some
of the most terrifying issues of our time.
