I read the first Michael Osborne novel uite a long time Ago And Really Enjoyed This and really No Respect enjoyed this up I love the Gabriel Allon novels but I find myself wishing that Silva had written with Osborne Overall the writing is good and interesting but unfortunately the story is flawed A few times characters did things they shouldn t have been able to do just to move the story along One character in particular changed his behavior to conveniently take the story a direction the author wanted Thending didn t really resolve anything It s like the author wanted b I DON T HIDE MY REVIEWS BUT THEY DO CONTAIN SPOILERSThis is in Silva s line of Michael Osbourne books Osbourne is a former CIA agent who has rejoined the service He s done so because his father in law a retired US senator has been named to an ambassador post to Ireland and Osbourne senses dangerOsbourne never crosses paths with Silva s main Protagonist On Again Off Again Israeli Agent Assassin Gabriel Allon on again off again Israeli agent assassin Gabriel Allon stars in most Silva novelsBut the two men do have in common their The Spirituality Revolution encounters with commercial assassin Jean Paul Delaroche who was trained behind the Iron Curtain and is literally a bastard Initially Delaroche was sent to the West as a sleeperstill in his teens for political missions but now he s a free market hired gunDelaroche who seemed pathologically dispassionate whenxecuting people or dealing with His Handlers Is Sadly handlers is sadly the worst bad guy in this book As an aside Delaroche likes to paint just like Allon doesdid These days Allon does art restoration but little original workOsbourne and Delaroche form an impromptu alliance toward the book s nd as both struggle to be free of the cabal that is trying to rile up Irishmen again to violence Prods vs the papists as usualThe cabal it turns out is a shadowy working group of national intelligence services and major criminal and terrorist interests tc These seemingly odd bedfellows use the shadow group to outsource killings that would be too politically sensitive for any government agency to take on and to instigate negative Economies and Cultures events that somehow advance a nation s secret agenda In Marching Season forxample the group decides to kill a new peace movement in Ireland that would be bad for the illegal weapons industry Near book s Designing with Web Standards end back in the States Delaroche attempts to assassinate Osbourne s father in law but Osbourne surprisingly lets the killerscape That s because Osbourne has figured out who hired Delaroche Osbourne instead reserves his ire and nergy working behind the scenes to dislodge from American in. When the Good Friday peace accords are shattered by three savage acts of terrorism Northern Ireland is blown back into the depths of conflict And after his father in. Hey aren t the only terrorist groups at work in the UKIn 1998 The Good Friday Agreement was reached that ssentially cemented the relationships and sovereign rights of Northern Ireland the Republic of Ireland and the UK While many argue that it s not perfect it has managed to bring about a semblance of peace between all partiesOf course this is a problem for those who profited and capitalized on The Troubles namely companies and weapons dealers who are funded by war and strife In Silva s novel a fictional group known as the Society works to undermine the Good Friday peace accords by funding an Irish terrorist organization who is against the peace accordsCIA analyst Michael Osborne who barely made it out of The Mark of the Assassin alive has been called out of retirement to head a CIA unit in the UK in the hopes of uelling and Structure Of The Nucleus ending the new terrorist group Reluctantly Osborne agrees but only because his father in law has been chosen by the President to be the new Irish AmbassadorMeanwhile the assassin known as Delaroche is still alive and active Thought to be killed at thend of the last novel Osborne has had his suspicions Recent assassinations have had a familiar Delaroche aroma about them but few people at Langley believe that Delaroche is First Anthology even alive The Society of course is working to keep Osborne and his father in law out of the way PermanentlyOnce again Silva has written a tautdge of the seat suspense thriller in the Tom Clancy In truth The Marching Season has than a few major similarities with Clancy s classic novel Patriot Games at least Silva is copying from the best Patriot Games is one of my favorite Clancy novelsThe action and suspense never lets up in this one and the Releasing The Power Within Through Spiritual Dynamics end almost guarantees a follow up novel in the Osborne series Rereading Daniel Silva sarly work has been doubly njoyable First the stories were well written but importantly to me was to see how Silva drew from the antagonist Delaroche from The Mark of The Assassin and The Marching Season and parlayed him into Gabriel Allon in the future works While Delaroche admits to being an assassin he states on than one Gabriel Allon in the future works While Delaroche admits to being an assassin he states on than one that he is not a murderer Also Delaroche has talent as a painter and of course Allon has the cover of being an art restoration xpert in that series and considers himself an assassin not a murderer Finally I as an avid reader am thankful that Silva abandoned his Osbourne protagonist in favor of Allon The Israeli assassin and art restorer is much interesting than another CIA operative as far as thrillers go. Aw is marked for Science, Technology and Culture execution And that he himself is once again in the crosshairs of a killer known as October one of the most merciless assassins the world hasver kno.
