Book Review: The Confessor



The Confessor by Daniel Silva

I've been trying to read some authors I've not tried before - particularly in the mystery and suspense areas - so that I can better recommend books to some of my hardcore mystery reading patrons.

This title by Silva delves into a number of topics, all interwoven together - the assassinations of members of Black September from Munich in 1972, the Holocaust, the Vatican, and European politics and struggles of religion, murder and more. I felt as though I had been dropped into the book in the middle when I began reading, but it slowly revealed itself.

This was a clever read, well written, though best read in just a few sittings...I found if I put it down for more than a few days, I tended to lose the thread. A good suspense title!
