O Assassino Inglês - Daniel Silva

Comecei a ler no dia 15 de Agosto de 2009 e acabei no dia 20 de Agosto.

Espião ocasional e restaurador de arte, Gabriel Allon chega a Zurique para restaurar a obra de um Velho Mestre, a pedido de um banqueiro milionário. Em vez disso, dá por si no meio do sangue do cliente e injustamente acusado do seu homicídio.
Allon vê-se inesperadamente a braços com uma voraz cadeia de acontecimentos, incluindo roubos de arte pelos nazis, um suicídio com várias décadas e um trilho sangrento de assassínios - alguns da sua autoria. O mundo da espionagem que Allon pensava ter colocado de parte vai envolvê-lo uma vez mais. E ele vai ter de lutar pela vida com o assassino que ajudou a treinar.
