The Fallen Angel: A Novel

I've almost finished The Fallen Angel: A Novel. Israeli art restorer/agent Gabriel Allon, while restoring a painting at the Vatican, is asked by the pope's private secretary to investigate a murder in the Sistine Chapel. There are some interesting bits in the story, including a mention of the Jesuits' situation in El Salvador, and Gabriel's investigation, which begins in Rome, also takes him to Paris, Berlin, and St. Moritz ....

Eventually he goes along with the pope on a visit to Jerusalem at Easter, where the pope walks the stations of the cross on the Via Dolorosa. While in Jerusalem, Gabriel and his archaeologist friend Eli avert a bombing disaster by using the Western Wall Tunnel to access the area under the Temple Mount. Here's a video about the tunnels ...

You can listen to a short NPR review of the book (and another spy novel) here

The book sounds exciting, but the video of the Western Wall tunnels is even more exciting.

Hi Dina,

Yes, I never even realized there was a tunnel system there until I read the book. So much I have to learn about that region!
