    1. My problem with the latest Dan Silva novel, "Moscow Rules" is that it seems that Silva is playing by rules of his own. Each of his latest novels seems to have been become formulaic:1. Gabriel Allon gets persuaded back into the life of an Israeli intelligence officer by presumably doing a "favor" for his mentor Ari Shamron.2. The "favor" turns into a large scale operation.3. Perfect Plan is formed on intelligence and sources.4. Perfect Plan goes astray.5. Allon saves the day, retreats back to his [...]

    2. I've mentioned before my general slam on long-running series: at some point, the author starts repeating him/herself. Characters that were once vibrant and fresh start doing and saying the same things. Often, they don't seem to learn anything from their previous adventures or do much changing. So it also goes for the recurring supporting characters. It's one reason why I've only recently begun thinking (albeit reluctantly) about writing a series.Unfortunately, it appears that Gabriel Allon, Dani [...]

    3. Pretty good story. I was due for a little espionage and international intrigue. Silva includes a lot of stuff that is close to reality, which makes the story a little more edgy and also disturbing. It's sad to know that the Russian people are not really much better off or more "free" since the fall of communism. (Except that they are allowed to leave the country now.) I'd heard things about the Russian "mafia" and the oligarchy that presides since capitalism swept in, and also about the undergro [...]

    4. Moscow Rules is the eighth book in the Gabriel Allon series by Daniel Silva. Allon is a art restorer and former Israeli Mossad agent. In this book Allon's attention moves from historical crimes to a present day case involving arms sales to al-Quaeda.The choice of topic is an interesting follow-up to last week's Booking Through Thursday question. As I stated in my answer, I haven't shied away from books involving modern day terrorists. Nonetheless, Deb's question did sit in the back of my mind as [...]

    5. Once again, I wish had half starsI more than 3 star liked this book but not quite 4 stars. Maybe b/c it's book 8 in the series, they're all merging in my memory, but this one didn't stand out better than any of the others. It's still a great spy read, and thoroughly enjoyable. Russia was new terrain for these characters, and interesting since I have very little knowledge about Russiad this piqued my interest.Another "issue" related to this being book 8 of the series is the literary device of re [...]

    6. Hi Daniel Siva has done it again, a spell bounding spy story. One of the best books i have readYou know, I used to read 2/3 books a week . Now I am retired I find it difficult to read for long periods. But this book I nearly read in one sitting.Now what does that say? This is a seriously fine book Well done Daniel

    7. Moscow Rules follows Silva's previous tried and true formula - the book begins by introducing the bad guys committing a crime beyond the capabilities of local authorities to solve. A reluctant Gabriel, busy in some remote but beautiful locale, (in this book he is on his honeymoon in Italy), is then summoned. He pulls together a team of now well known characters and sets up a sting operation to snare the bad guys - usually Arab terrorists. Inevitably the plan falls apart at some critical juncture [...]

    8. It is written with understanding how ruthless Russian thugs really are. As well as with appreciation that there are always decent, noble, refined, and courageous people in every society, even as barbarian as Russia. Also, I hope that 1.5 hr ride from Moscow to Ukranian border is a misspelling, it would take at least 7-8 hours.

    9. Sempre tive curiosidade para ler um dos muitos livros que Daniel Silva tem publicado ao longo dos anos. Não só porque é um dos muitos luso descendentes, bem sucedidos além fronteiras, mas também porque sempre li boas críticas aos seus livros."As Regras de Moscovo" é um livro sobre terrorismo, sobre relações internacionais, especialmente as que se mantêm com a Rússia, e sobre a venda ilegal de armas. Allon pertence aos Serviços Secretos israelitas, sendo um dos seus mais conceituados [...]

    10. Moscow Rules is the 8th book in the Gabriel Allon series by Daniel Silva. Gabriel and Chiara are on their honeymoon when Gabriel is summoned. A Russian journalist has important information he wants to pass along about a threat to the West but he will only tell it to Gabriel. He travels to Rome to meet the Russian journalist but the journalist is killed before he can tell Gabriel. Allon then travels to Russia to try and find out what it was that the journalist wanted to tell him. There he learns [...]

    11. 8th in the Gabriel Allon series.Gabriel and Chiara are on their honeymoon in the Umbrian hills of Italy while Gabriel, under an assumed name, of course, restores a painting for the Vatican. However, any thought that Ari Shamron, the unofficial head of Israeli Intelligence, will allow Allon some peace is rudely shattered when Allon gets an assignment: meet with a Russian journalist now in Rome, find out what he wants--because the journalist will talk with no one but Allon about what he claims is [...]

    12. A top notch thriller that I have come to expect from Daniel Silva. As in all of his spy novels featuring the assassin/spy Gabriel Allon, it starts off with Mr. Allon in some far off land restoring art, which is his side line. Allon, an assassin and spy for the Office in Israel, is asked to do a small favor of meeting with a Russian journalist, who has information. Somehow the journalist ends up dead, leading Allon to take up the case of what information the journalist had, which leads Allon to O [...]

    13. Daniel Silva is a wonderful, natural storyteller, and his books are a pleasure to read. Moscow Rules is Gabriel Allon at his hardest and crunchiest. It's a great read. Recommended for readers ofBrad Thor, Alex Berenson, Vince Flynn, Jon Stock

    14. The premise of Daniel Silva’s eighth Gabriel Allon thriller (about midway through the series so far) is that in Moscow, you shouldn’t trust anyone because you are never completely alone. Even though the novel was written nearly a decade ago, its message resonates loud and clear with today’s headlines. In this story, Allon fights quite a few villains, not to mention the clock, to keep bad actors from getting their hands on deadly missiles brokered by a notorious Russian arms dealer.I really [...]

    15. I have been following books written by Daniel Silva for many years. Among my favorites are the ones centering on Gabriel Allon. I particularly enjoy Daniel Silva’s ability to take readers along on his risky journeys in different parts of the world to protect his country and other countries from their enemies. Allon’s dedication to his country and human values make him very attractive. I always eagerly wait for Daniel Silva’s new books to meet Gabriel Allon again. However, when the book “ [...]

    16. Moscow Rules by Daniel Silva is the eighth in the Gabriel Allon series. Even though there are numer­ous ref­er­ences to the pre­vi­ous books, I thought this novel was still a good read and could be read independently.Gabriel Allon and his new wife, Chiara, are on their hon­ey­moon in Umbria, Italy. But Gabriel never stops work­ing and is restor­ing a paint­ing for the Vat­i­can. A Russ­ian news­pa­per reporter con­tacts the Israeli embassy in Rome request­ing a meet­ing with Al [...]

    17. Sob o disfarce de ter de participar numa conferência da UNESCO em Sampetersburgo, Gabriel Alon, o protagonista de todos os romances de Daniel Silva, parte para a Rússia com o intuito de conhecer Olga Sukhova, directora editorial interina do Moskovsky Gazeta. Olga Sukhova poderá ser a chave para que se descubra o que esteve por trás dos assassinatos de dois jornalistas, seus colegas, recentemente. De facto, a jornalista russa transporta consigo um segredo que pode levar à morte de qualquer u [...]

    18. Gabriel Allon 8. Allon meets Kharkov; snatches Elena & the kids, Olga and facilitates Bulganov's escape. Gabriel & Ciara's honeymoon in Umbria is interrupted for a chance meet in Rome with a dissident Russian editor who is killed before they chat. Pissed, Allon exercises his Brit contact MI5 and learns of the international scope of Ivan Kharkov's arms smuggling empire. Traveling to Russia under cover, Allon meets Olga Suhkova and enlists her participation in the plot to undermine Kharkov [...]

    19. I own The Gabriel Allon series for two reasons 1) they are exciting, intricate, well written and sometime heart stopping action regarding the best spy and assasin Israel has (who also happens to be a masterful artist that has forgone painting to restoring great Master's originals) and 2) Daniel Silva EDUCATES me on what is actually going on in the middle east. In the beginning of the series, not so much on the political arena but it starts with the attack on the Israeli athletes in 1972), but as [...]

    20. Oh My! "deep breath" this was another world win novel by author Daniel Silva. I'm not sure what exactly has facinated me about this series, but I am thoroughly addicted to the main character Gabriel Allon. He is the James Bond of Israel's secret service. He is sexy, intriguing, alluring and he doesn't try one damn bit to be so. He is in every way the perfect man. Seasoned with years of experience, dangerous, smart, sexy and refined; either while wielding a paint brush or a gun.Have I gotten your [...]

    21. Except for the likes of Clancy, Coonts, and Forsyth, we don’t venture into international thrillers too often – indeed “Rules” was just our second novel by Daniel Silva featuring his leading man, Israeli top spy Gabriel Allon. (We had forgotten our first was "Death in Vienna" several years ago) Allon’s honeymoon, and efforts to restore an old oil painting (his avocation), are interrupted by what was supposed to be a very brief assignment to meet a Russian journalist with something impor [...]

    22. 4 1/2 stars. Book #8 in Silva's brilliant Gabriel Allon series does not disappoint. A Russian journalist is killed in Rome in Gabriel's arms. This leads to Daniel tracking a Russian oligarch who is selling missiles to Al Qaeda through African arms dealers. Determined to stop the sale and the slaughter that would follow, Allon inserts himself into the life of the wife of the oligarch. A roller coaster ride of suspense and intrigue. A great read.

    23. In Daniel Silva's eighth book, we find Gabriel Allon heading to Moscow. Not the grim, gray Moscow of Soviet times but a new Moscow, awash in oil wealth and choked with supercars. Power resides once more in the Kremlin though. New style Stalinists are plotting to reclaim an empire lost. One such man is Ivan Kharkov, a former KGB colonel who built a global investment empire. However hidden within that empire is a more lucrative and deadly business. Kharkov is an arms dealer—and he is about to de [...]

    24. I'm into a sort of espionage thirst, especially after finding by chance the great Olen Steinhauer's "The Tourist" trilogy this year.Sadly, and I don't know if this is because it is the eighth book in the series (and the first I read), but I just didn't like Gabriel Allon as I liked Milo Weaver. Allon lacks flaws. He is too perfect in this book. He saves the day in a simple "one-way" outlined story. There are constant references to previous books and characters, that I think they were forcibly pu [...]

    25. Well, Silva has kept churning them out. Another fascinating plot, and the additional interest of having the "bad guys" be Russian instead of Muslim terrorists.The thing that pulled me back from a full 5 stars this time is, first of all, Silva occasionally fell back too much on cliché, as in his earliest works, and secondly, the very poor editing of the Russian names and words. My knowledge of Russian is pretty rudimentary, but enough to see mistakes that simply shouldn't have made it through th [...]

    26. Silva's writing always amazed me because he wrote it with full of respect in every characters in the book, when other books made all men the heroes, Silva made it equal, if a men can be always a hero so as the women. He made look more interesting because he likes to explore every character's personality and of course the jewish humour I always love and made me laughed out loud. But i need to breath before reading the next series, Moscow Rules took my breath away.

    27. Better than the last 2 books. Less dark and unhappy, Gabriel seemed more like he was in the earliest books. Plus a nice change with the bad guys being Russian instead of Muslim.

    28. This was good but I'm afraid that they are all starting to seem the same. This time we threw in Russia so that was good but we have finished Gabriel's journey to knowing himself, we have finished becoming acquainted with his team, we have finished the love/hate relationship with Ari (now it is only love), we have settled into a routine. It's not a total cookie cutter but it is a little too close.

    29. While it may be the usual formula - drag Gabriel out of an art job, request small favor - little time, no effort, no danger - only to have it blow up into a major operation, few authors do this as well as Silva. Some of it is a bit too coincidental (wife of a Russian gun dealing thug turns out to be an expert art collector? Right!) But, as you find yourself thinking, now what? and how does he get out of this? set in a well paced work, it is a most enjoyable read.

    30. Perhaps not the best GA book to date, but nonetheless, I rate it on the weak side of a 4. My drawbacks were the ability to shoot head shots with a badly damaged eye afte suffereing a terrrible beatingjust did not seem realistic to me. Otherwise a good story bring back a former US spy to assist in the case.
