House of Spies (Gabriel Allon #17) by Daniel SilvaA heart-stopping tale of suspense, Daniel Silva’s runaway bestseller, The Black Widow, was one of 2016’s biggest novels. Now, in House of Spies, Gabriel Allon is back and out for revenge – determined to hunt down the world’s most dangerous terrorist, a shadowy ISIS mastermind known only as Saladin.
Four months after the deadliest attack on the American homeland since 9/11, terrorists leave a trail of carnage through London’s glittering West End. The attack is a brilliant feat of planning and secrecy, but with one loose thread.
The thread leads Gabriel Allon and his team of operatives to the south of France and to the gilded doorstep of Jean-Luc Martel and Olivia Watson. A beautiful former British fashion model, Olivia pretends not to know that the true source of Martel’s enormous wealth is drugs. And Martel, likewise, turns a blind eye to the fact he is doing business with a man whose objective is the very destruction of the West. Together, under Gabriel’s skilled hand, they will become an unlikely pair of heroes in the global war on terrorism.
Written in seductive and elegant prose, the story moves swiftly from the glamour of Saint-Tropez to the grit of Casablanca and, finally, to an electrifying climax that will leave readers breathless long after they turn the final page.
Featured Review: ‘House of Spies’ By Daniel Silva
Anyone who sports a garish old shirt that now is all the rage knows what I mean. Even dead authors Robert B. Parker and Vince Flynn come to mind put out new novels — written by others, of course. I once reviewed a book in this space in which a man, all alone, fell out of a boat and died when he hit his head on a rock. Just as the murderer planned! House of Spies picks up where the previous entry in the series, The Black Widow , left off. Western intelligence agencies combine forces to hunt down Saladin, who is known to be planning an even bigger attack.
