    A good pot boiler , not great. The locals and background kept it interesting but the characters didn't spring to life. There were hints to a richer backstory but not truly developed.

    Yes, I know it is fiction. But it is excellent Jewish fiction. I pray Daniel comes to know personally the God so casually dismissed by Gabriel. This is a superb book.

    This is my first Silva book. As a lot of the good thrillers, a little hard to follow at times. I loved the history and connection to the current political climate. Looking forward to another Silva book.

    It appears this one was rushed, i did not enjoy it as much as i anticipated. the plot and sequence of events is OK, the bias is obvious, and was dissappointed after ready 2/3 of the book, i knew that the thrilling ends we're used to will not be part of this book.
  • Classic Silva

    Fallen Angel is typical Silva. If you liked his last several novels you will like this one as well. The climax is a little abrupt and short-lived, but per Silva's style, trends towards being more realistic than "Hollywood." Great historical context within the setting of the finale. Good read.

    As a catholic, i appreciate his description of the Vatican and its inner workings. As a human being, I cannot feel but sadness at the misguided Muslim belief system. So out of touch with reality. It will end in disaster. The world will suffer greatly as well as our Jewish friends.
  • Great read!

    I got the sample book and got hooked. The suspense was maintained until the end and it was a very entertaining and easy read. The story was well put together and I enjoyed how the story continued to evolve as the pages turned. Just when you thought a story was coming to an end it compounded and got you hooked again to see what happens next.
