It was supposed to be the start of a pleasant weekend in London for master art restorer and spy Gabriel Allonand his wife, Chiara. But a deadly pair of bombings in Paris and Copenhagen has already marred this lovelyautumn day. Then, before he can stop a man he suspectsis about to launch a third attack in Covent Garden, Gabriel is knocked to the pavement--and he can only watch helplessly as the nightmare unfolds.The haunting memory of his failure to stop the massacre of innocents is still fresh when Gabriel is summoned to Washington--and plunged into a deadly confrontation with the new face of global terror.

And the worst is yet to come . . .
