Format: Kindle Edition
This is a fast-paced, intelligent, and well-written novel about one troubled CIA spy tracking down a vicious terrorist, and his handlers, who see his assignment in another, more cynical light. The spy is Pablo da Silva, a talented, multilingual agent able to move easily across borders and through various cultures and strata of society. As we first see him, he is exiled in a remote assignment after a misadventure that left two victims and ruined his reputation. His agency recalls him to Langley because of his unique background and talents and, despite doubts about his fitness, assigns him to help the FBI investigate a murder that may be linked to terrorist activity. This he does, and winds up in a shootout with a suspect in San Diego in which he does not distinguish himself but does obtain valuable evidence. The evidence suggests a link to a notorious American-born jihadist responsible for several terrorist bombings. His name is Billy Foster, but he has countless Arabic aliases.

Da Silva's agency boss then gives him what seems the impossible task of finding Foster. Foster has long been operating successfully from deep cover and may be hiding anywhere. Da Silva is to perform his mission alone, using his own devices and contacts, starting with scant evidence. He narrows the search to Western Europe, and follows leads from England to Switzerland, Germany, France, and Belgium. The author evokes the shape and atmosphere of these places with considerable skill. This reader found the European locations considerably more interesting to read about than Virginia, Washington, DC, or San Diego (even with a side trip to Tijuana), and make the second half of the book more colorful than the first.

Does da Silva find Foster?

If he does, does he survive the meeting?

I found it so uninvolving that I did not even finish reading it. That may be a first for me.

I found this less appealing than I thought it was going to be. A bit predictable and well just not overly interesting
