Forever And A Death by Donald E Westlake

I read a lot of Westlake back in the 70s- the Dortmunder series, mainly, but one or two Parkers as well. Good writer.

I've really enjoyed the writing of Daniel Silvia and the Gabriel Allon novels.  Any other fans of that series?  Thoughts?

Yes, another fan here, having read all of them. I've generally enjoyed them all, but I did find that a number of books in the series...

Spoilerfollowed the same format, in that Allon foils the enemy's plot, and then the book finishes with Allon coming back in the last scene to kill the enemy, which just got repetitive.

...Other than that, I would recommend them.
