In The Fallen Angel by Daniel Silva, Gabriel Allon is called to the Vatican to restore a Caravaggio when a woman kills herself in St. Peter’s Basilica. Monsignor Luigi Donati, secretary to His Holiness Pope Paul VII, believes that her death is suspicious and, not wishing a scandal for the Vatican, asks Allon to investigate. The story, as Daniel Silva’s tales do, take us deep into a world of conspiracy and art theft to uncover the truth of why someone would want a Vatican antiquity specialist dead — and who hopes to kill Allon as well.
In The Detachment (John Rain Thrillers) by Barry Eisler, Colonel Scott “Hort” Horton tracks Rain down in Tokyo and gives him an offer he can’t refuse, a massive payoff for the natural-looking deaths of high-level politicians who are plotting the destruction of the U.S. Rain brings the irrepressible Dox to the party while Hort sends in two of his operatives, Ben Treven and Larison. The men must make some tough decisions to stay alive when they realize that all is not as it seems. The Detachment (John Rain Thrillers) is the 7th book in the John Rain Series.
