"The 21st century has its own James Bond: Israeli secret agent Gabriel Allon. Narrator Phil Gigante expertly brings Allon to life as he masterfully navigates a complex story. Gigante excels with his character portrayals, in particular his depiction of Allon, who has secluded himself on the Cornish coast as he attempts to retire from the world of espionage. But the appearance of someone from his past, a murder, and the theft of a Rembrandt propel him to follow a trail of clues that leads to deadly secrets. As the story races from England to the Netherlands, Argentina, and Switzerland, Gigante delivers credible characters and builds suspense. THE REMBRANDT AFFAIR is a smart and moving story. In Gigante's capable hands, listeners will be hooked. J.R.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
