Spy turned art restorer Gabriel Allon finds himself accused of murder in this New York Times bestseller from Daniel Silva.

An Israeli spy by trade and art restorer by preference, Gabriel Allon arrives in Zurich to restore the work of an Old Master for a millionaire banker--and finds himself standing in blood and framed for the man's murder.

While trying to clear his name, Allon is swept into a spiraling chain of events involving Nazi art theft, a decades-old suicide, and a dark and bloody trail of killings--some of them his own. The spy world Allon thought he had left behind has come back to haunt him. And he will have to fight for his life--against an assassin he himself 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.
