    1 thought on “O Confessor”

    1. Excellent Intellectual Intrigue - 4 Gabriel Allon is not the typical spy and assassin. I have enjoyed the intelligent tone of these books and the complex political, social and racial matters the stories discuss. The third installment of the series continues in this vein.I enjoyed this nearly as much as the last book in the series but the subplot and resolution of the story was far too similar to the previous installment. Because of this, the book lost a star in my rating. Additionally, there has [...]

    2. I don't normally go for thriller spycraft fiction, but I confess I am totally addicted to Silva's spy novels about an Israeli assassin/spy and part-time art restorer named Gabriel Allon. The first book was written in 2000 and the latest in 2012 and in that time span, Silva draws a geopolitical arc starting with Nazi wartime crimes and the complicity of the Vatican and the Swiss in Nazi wartime looting. Then to the Palestinian conflict, Black September and the rise of Islamic fundamentalism. And [...]

    3. I admire Mr. Silva's writing more with every novel he pins that feature Gabriel Allon. I realize I have not appreciated them all the same, but that's because some are better than others. 9 of 10 stars

    4. Daniel Silva's third novel in his Gabriel Allon series takes place mainly in Rome, where a new (fictional) Pope has plans to reveal the complicity between the Catholic Church and the Nazis during WWII as regards the Final Solution. It is a gripping and well-written thriller.I am enjoying this series because it gives me insight into the Jewish point of view, at least as regards the Israeli secret service. Truthfully, as I have learned in the many spy thrillers I have read, the secret service of a [...]

    5. Terceiro AllonLivro número três da saga de Daniel Silva, utilizando os predicados do seu antecessor, focado naquilo a que se propõe, sem divagações excessivas.Recorre-se de um enclave extremamente explorado, quiçá ao quase ponto de exaustão, mas de alguma forma afasta-se dos lugares comuns. Talvez por isso, para mim, tenha resultado numa leitura agradável com (esporádicas) passagens surpreendentes.Não será certamente o melhor livro de Gabriel Allon, nem tão pouco o seu pior. Cumpre. [...]

    6. Eu tenho sempre um problema com este género de livros e com estes autores a quem eu, carinhosamente, apelido de "Dan Browns" (apenas porque o código foi dos primeiros livros que li deste género). Isto porque são livros que muito dificilmente fogem dos mesmos lugares comuns. Ou seja, depois de se lerem dois ou três do género, acaba por ir tudo parar um pouco ao mesmo. Mais uma vez com a igreja católica como "vilã", este foi o primeiro livro que li de Daniel Silva e, infelizmente, não ter [...]

    7. O terceiro livro da série do charmoso Grabriel Allon, tal como os anteriores, leva-nos numa viagem pelo mundo. Desde Veneza até Roma, de Munique até um palacete de luxo na Suíça, de um convento ao pé do lago até Londres e França, o livro tem um ritmo extraordinário e a leitura decorre com naturalidade. E pronto, aqui terminam as minhas observações positivas.Em relação às personagens, Daniel Silva não as apresenta com sucesso. Limita-se a bombardear o leitor com nomes e cargos prof [...]

    8. “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 h [...]

    9. I think it's interesting how each book treats one subject important to the world's (or Europe's) Jews and/or modern-day Israel. The last one was about the Swiss banks' role in and after the Holocaust and its plundering of Europe's Jews (along with the Nazis' physical elimination of them), this one about the Vatican and Pope Pius XII. I also liked the general plot of this one, although there are some parts I find a bit hard to believe in. They're details, but still annoying. Like, towards the end [...]

    10. Segunda guerra mundial, o extermínio dos judeus e o papel da igreja católica em tudo este contexto, será este o cenário de mais um livro de Daniel Silva e do tão conhecido restaurador de arte israelita, Gabriel Allon. Como sempre são livros com muita acção e mistério que nos prendem deste a 1ª página

    11. Always enjoy this author for the page turning story (I read 1/2 of it today). It's not going to win literary awards but I enjoy learning more about the character Gabriel Allon and his cover as an art restorer. Interesting story focusing on the involvement of the Catholic Church in WWII and the persecution of the Jewish population in Italy. I have read the latest books in this series and now return to the beginning. Looking forward to reading the next one in the series.

    12. Daniel SilvaInteresting and very informative; a current day Israeli agent tracks the killer of a close friend and colleague, uncovering the sins of The Vatican during WWII. A fictional story with factual history. The story is not so much an indictment of the Vatican, but a revelation of how any religion can put politics and greed above the church's (any faith's) mandate.

    13. Até agora, o melhor da série, que só não leva as 5 estrelas por aquele final um pouco inexplicável.

    14. Renowned Art Restorer and sometimes Israeli Agent and Assassin is in Venice restoring a Benini Altarpiece when word comes to him that his friend and fellow Office Agent has been murdered in Munich, Germany. Beni is also the son of Gabriel Allon's boss, Ari Shamron. His mission is to sanitize Stern's apartment and find his killer. The killer is The Leopard - a man with no face, a mercenary for hire, a myth to most countries' Intelligence Services. He works for a super secret group within the Cath [...]

    15. The Confessor, by Daniel Silva, b-plus, narrated by John Lee, produced by Books on Tape, downloaded from audible.This is the third in the Gabriel Allum series. In this one, he learns that he is to go to Munich because a Jewish historian, has been murdered. Again we have a thriller with Gabriel, now partnered with another beautiful woman, another Israeli spy, and the two of them are not only supposed to find out who killed the historian, but why. After Gabriel visits a journalist who was known to [...]

    16. I don't know why I wait so long to read the next in book in this series. They are fantastic. Everything you could possibly want from a spy thriller. A wonderful, broken main character. A plot full of intrigue and history. And the secondary characters aren't too bad either. I could take or leave the subtle love interests in every book, but I guess you need a bit of romance to spice things up, eh? In this book Gabriel is brought back into the spy fold to solve the mystery of the death of one of hi [...]

    17. I have read almost all of Daniel Silva's books and this would be my least favorite. The first 150 pages are tough to get through because you expect the plot to take off and it doesn't.I think Silva was so determined to expose the Catholic Church's failings during the Holocaust that his plot was derailed. Try any other Gabriel Allon book. Skip this one. You can live without it.

    18. 1º livro que leio de Daniel Silva e sinceramente esperava mais. Não sei ao certo o porquê, mas não me entusiasmou :/

    19. The first Silva book that I read, much, much later in the series, involved the Pope, so it was great to read this book where we see the seeds of that relationship being sown. The story, itself, was very intricate and in many ways, Gabriel was a side player. What if, during WWII, the Pope at the time, had reasons why he didn't condemn the Holocaust or the Nazis and those reasons were a committed secret society within the church, the True Cross, who made a deal with one of Hitler's top officials. [...]

    20. Moving relatively slowly through this series, but I definitely see the attraction. This one flew by after the hook was planted early on. I even liked the tidy little bow added at the end, almost as a zinger.As airplane (or relatively light) reading goes, I've found these to be a safe bet.The international angle is fun - there's lots of border crossings and interesting cities and venues to visit. There's lots of Munich and Venice and Rome in this one, which was fun for me since I read most of it [...]

    21. Vatikanets svar på KGB er ikke tilfredse med de planer, den nye pave har. Samtidig dør folk, der forsker i Vatikanets skyggesider, på stribe. Der er nok at se til for hovedpersonerne i "Vatikanets Mand".

    22. One of my favorites, so far. I love reading anything featuring Vatican-centered espionage -- and this book does not disappoint.

    23. "Ele era um enigma, uma suspeita constante, uma teoria""O Confessor" é um livro muito à imagem do Assassino Inglês, "O Confessor” é um livro de espionagem, dos tempos atuais mas reflexo de acontecimentos passados durante a 2ª Guerra Mundial, aborda a perseguição aos Judeus e o papel da Igreja Católica, no genocídio."O líder da igreja não fora capaz de encontrar palavras para condenar o assassínio de seis milhões de judeus, mas os seus bispos e padres tinham dado conforto e santuá [...]

    24. পশ্চিম ইউরোপের মধ্যে রোম হল সবচেয়ে পুরাতন অভিবাসী পূর্ন শহর,এর প্রানকেন্দ্রে ইহুদিরা প্রায় দু হাজার বছর ধরে বসবাস করে আসছে। গালিলি থেকে পিটার নামের এক জেলে আসার বহু আগে থেকেই এখানে বসবাস ক [...]

    25. Daniel Silva is among the top five or six living political thriller writers. Each of his books exhibits polished prose, multidimensional, sympathetic characters, good pacing and meticulous research. "The Confessor" has all of these, though perhaps not as gripping in plot as "The Marching Season" and "The English Assassin."The premise of the story, that the Vatican was complicit in the Holocaust and that a shady group called Crux Vera acts as a Mafia-like killing machine within the Holy See truly [...]

    26. 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 po [...]

    27. The Supreme Pontiff in this novel is Pope Paul VII and he’s relatively new to this position in the Catholic hierarchy. He has a plan to open the Vatican’s archives so that scholars can examine documents related to Pope Pius XII’s activities during WWII. There’s also a small group in the Vatican called Crux Vera (The True Cross) with ideas of their own and they don’t quite mesh with those of the pope. Gabriel Allon, Israel’s super spy and sometime art restorer, gets involved when a g [...]

    28. This book is as excellently written as the two ones before it. What brings me to give only three stars? Well, I am not as sure as the Author that the story behind Pio XII is well told. You see, just recently I read bibliography that defends that Pio XII wrote 52 memorandums to Hitler protesting against the persecution of the Jewish People, some of these memorandums written directly in German. I also read that in the beginning, he had instructed Catholics to protect Jews, but that in one of the E [...]
