The Confessor by Daniel Silva is the third installment in the fictional adventures of the reluctant Israeli agent Gabriel Allon. Working as art restorer Mario Delvecchio, Allon is called one more time into service to investigate the mysterious murder of his friend Benjamin Stern. As the investigation progresses, Allon discovers that Stern has been working on a book, that once published would cause a scandal in the Vatican and do great harm to the Roman Catholic Church.

At the Vatican, the new pope vows to uncover the truth about the church's response to the Holocaust. Powerful forces, especially the secret society known as the Crux Vera, within the Roman Catholic Church are not happy about the Pope’s initiative and are willing to go to great extremes in order to stop it. Gabriel is pulled into the internal struggle through his investigation which takes him around Europe, discovering the hidden secrets of the past.

This novel is also thought provoking. What was the church’s role during the Holocaust? The story and characters are gripping and I was drawn in from the beginning chapter. The author is very accomplished in presenting his story in an interesting and tightly wrapped manner. I consider the Gabriel Allon series to be one of my very favorite and one I consistently preorder because they just keep getting better and better. I've read the entire series but am currently listening to them in audio, impeccably narrated by John Lee. ( )

An artwork restorer is called back to his “real job”: to hunt down the killer of his Jewish friend, who was writing a book to expose the Catholic church’s conduct during WWII. With the help of allies of both religions, he must evade killers who want the church’s secret to stay secret. Non-stop action with brilliant twists, this is an excellent thriller. Kudos to the narrator, who deftly handled various accents. ( )

An entertaining thriller full of references to the Pope Pius VII's actions during World War II. Lot of characters from Italy, Germany, and Israel. It was credible enough to prompt me to research what the history surrounding how the Pope was silent during the Holocaust. Story includes reference to secret societies embedded within the Vatican. This one called 'Crux Vera' which is supposed to analogous to Opus Dei. This is the second book by Daniel Silva that I have read; and ti was good enough to motivate me to see what else he's written.

The Confessor. Daniel Silva. 2004. I read a later book in this series about Gabriel Allon sometime during the year and decided to start with the first one and read through the series. Gabriel is an art restorer who is also a member of the Israeli secret unit on counter-terrorism. He is in Venice working on an altar piece when a Jewish scholar who is working on a mysterious book is killed. Daniel is called away and eventually uncovers a cabal in the Vatican who is trying to control the Vatican and the pope. They were also responsible for selling out the church to the Nazis. The book is fascinating and exciting. However, the bibliographical sources listed in the back are pretty anti-Vatican so take the “facts” about cooperation with the Nazis with skepticism ( )
