Erster Satz | Daniel Silva: Der englische Spion
Der englische Spion (Gabriel Allon) - Daniel Silva,Wulf Bergner

Nichts von alledem wäre passiert, hätte Spider Barnes sich nicht zwei Abende vor dem Auslaufen der Aurora im Eddy's betrunken. 

 

Spider galt als der beste Schiffskoch der gesamten Karibik, cholerisch, aber unersetzlich, ein verrücktes Genie in weißer Jacke und Schürze. Spider, müssen Sie wissen, hatte eine klassische Ausbildung. Spider hatte einige Zeit in Paris gearbeitet. Spider war in London gewesen. Spider hatte New York, San Francisco und einen unglücklichen Zwischenstopp in Miami absolviert, bevor er endgültig aus dem Restaurantgeschäft ausgestiegen war, um die Freiheit der Meere zu genießen. Jetzt arbeitete er auf den großen Charterjachten, wie sie Filmstars, Rapper, Moguln und Angeber charterten, wenn sie imponieren wollten. Und wenn Spider nich an seinem Herd stand, war er unweigerlich auf einem der besseren Barhocker an Land anzutreffen.

Prince of Fire
Prince Of Fire - Daniel Silva

I went to a conference with a coworker where, along with the number of other people, we scored over 2,700 student essays. My coworker loaned me this on day one of the conference because Silva is one of her husband's favorite authors, and we have similar taste in books. I didn't think I'd want to read anything in the evenings after spending all day reading on a computer screen and straining my eyes, but once I started this, I had a hard time putting it down so that I could let my eyes rest. Much of what I read in here seemed familiar to me, so much so that I was wondering if perhaps I'd read previous books in this series but forgotten about them. It turns out that I hadn't, but Prince of Fire is inspired by actual historical events that I was familiar with, hence my confusion regarding the feeling of familiarity. I'm now a fan of Silva's Gabriel Allon series and will be adding the rest of the titles to my ever growing to-be-read pile. This is a fast paced thriller of high intensity and suspense.

Review of The English Spy by Daniel Silva
The English Spy (Gabriel Allon) - Daniel Silva

It is hard for me to objectively review the Gabriel Allon's books at this point.  I really enjoy the characters and always love the storytelling in this series.  This particular offering was not as good as others in the series.  It did bring in many former side characters from the series and as always, it moved the back story of Gabriel and his family along as well.  High recommended series.
