A sometime Israeli spy by trade and an art restorer by preference, Gabriel Allon arrives in Zurich to clean the work of an Old Master for a millionaire banker -- only to find himself standing in his client's blood and framed for the murder. Without warning, Allon is drawn into a spiraling chain of events involving Nazi art theft, a decades-old suicide, and a bloody trail of killings -- some of them his own. The spy world Allon thought he had put aside will envelop him once again. And he will have to battle for his life against the assassin he helped train.

Great read as always and an interesting background on the Nazi art theft scandals which continue into the 21st century. A backhanded critique of the Swiss bank system which allowed this crime to continue as well as an expose of the self serving political system of the Swiss during WWII and their so-called neutrality in the war.
