The Defector  - Daniel Silva

I compare this to Flynn's Memorial Day; as I consider that Flynn's masterpiece, I also consider this to be Silva's masterpiece (so far). All of Allon's experiences, memories, nightmares, etc. culminate in a blinding page-turner, as his wife is finally abducted by some of the very evil he is sworn to combat for mother Israel, reluctant as he is at times. In the last 150 pages of this book, one sees Allon drop all pretense, and Gladiator-style emotional revenge ensues. I literally could not put the book down at that point.
