Now he has discovered that his father-in-law, the new American Ambassador in London, is to be assassinated to send a message.

I was so excited to find the Osborne book two was available after devouring book one. Book one was finished in an evening, book two took me four days. Just couldn’t get into it, read for 20 minutes then on to another activity. Usually I read a book in its entirety in one session. I just couldn’t get “into” this one for some reason. The writing is good, premise is good but the story just felt forced...a hurry up & get to the publishers kind. There is a lack of fleshing out the new additions, continuity is a problem as well. Maybe a better editor could have fixed the flaws. I was disappointed, not sure I’d buy book three of this series. Will probably go to the library and read for an hour to decide.

This second book by Daniel Silva in the Michael Osbourne series is just as fast paced as the first. Themed around the Northern Ireland peace accord and the bloody enmity between the Protestants and the Catholics in the region, Daniel Silva demonstrates the deep research he does for each of his books.
Having read all the Gabriel Allon books, the character of Ari Shamron portrayed here left me a little uncomfortable! You will meet a number of other familiar characters here too.

I wanted to avoid the clichés of the more popular set of Silva's book (with Gabriel the restorer of art plus some kind of spy) but there is, apparently, no way to avoid the super-cliché of a secret global organization named 'Society'.

In the bell curve of readers there is apparently enough of fairly smart but very busy people who just want to relax with all kind of conspiracies. There are many authors like Silva, some of them make the conspiracies or at least machinations believable (many Californian authors do that, my favorite is Kellerman). Obviously, Silva is considered one of them but not by me.

Still, this may not be my last Silva's book, at this time I have plenty of time to read them on my very cheap basic Kindle or on one of my computers just before I fall asleep.

Nothing to hate in this book but nothing to like either.

Sequel to MARK OF THE ASSASSIN, the action takes place later in Michael Osbourne's life. Very enjoyable read, although I regret that Silva started this series when the main character was already well along in years. If it had started when he was younger, it might have carried on like the Gabriel Allon series.The Marching Season (Michael Osbourne Book 2)

I almost felt obligated to see this book through to the end but, I have to say it was mediocre. It was broad, with too many characters to sort through. It did not seem focused until the last 25% of the book when things came together.
Mr. Silva has definitely improved over the years since he wrote this story - thank goodness!

This is clearly a subject matter than Silva researched, rather than feels intimately or knows personally. It's a decent read, but he's imposed some highly fictional notions onto some actual characters, and it felt like he'd never actually spoken to or met them, namely Gerry Adams; I have. Silva's narrative patches for Adams do not ring true, and I suspect Silva has an anglophilic streak that has colored his storytelling. It's a trait that serves him well in his Gabriel Allon series, but doesn't do the story service in "The Marching Season". Otherwise, he does a fairly good job of portraying an aspect of the conflict in the north of Ireland. So, if you're not concerned with impeccable accuracy about Ireland, this is not a waste of time.

The Marching Season is a departure from Silvas usual stories, The story takes place in Ireland and is about the historical and perpetural conflict between the Catholic south and the Prostestent north. This is not about religion however, it's about politics and the influence of the U.S. trying to assist in getting accord between the north and south. Needless to say there are vicious militant fringe groups attempting to derail peace talks. It's an excellent story based on historical fact. Not one of Silvas best bujt recommended reading.

I enjoyed book 2 as much as Book 1. The characters were well developed and the plot continued at a fast and interesting pace. The villain, October became more human and almost like able at the end.The ending was a bit contrived and disappointing. However I would recommend both books to those that like murder mysteries.
