Bestselling author Daniel Silva delivers another spellbinding international thriller—one that finds the legendary Gabriel Allon grappling with an ISIS mastermind.

Gabriel Allon, the art restorer, spy, and assassin described as the most compelling fictional creation "since Ian Fleming put down his martini and invented James Bond" (Rocky Mountain News), is poised to become the chief of Israel’s secret intelligence service. But on the eve of his promotion, events conspire to lure him into the field for one final operation. ISIS has detonated a massive bomb in the Marais district of Paris, and a desperate French government wants Gabriel to eliminate the man responsible before he can strike again.

Acclaimed novelist Daniel Silva has thrilled, entertained and educated readers with eighteen thoughtful and gripping spy novels featuring a diverse cast of compelling characters and ingenious plots that have taken them around the globe and back—from the United States to Europe, Russia to the Middle East. From its shocking opening to its explosive denouement in Washington, D.C., The Black Widow reveals itself as Silva’s most timely and powerful novel yet. Following the success of his smash hit The English Spy, this electrifying thriller showcases Silva’s consummate skill and brilliant imagination, and is sure to be a must read for his multitude of current and future fans.

    The book really started slow! It was somewhat confusing at the beginning. I wasn't sure if it had to do with Gabriel As I got into it I was pleased you brought back most of the characters Didn't spend enough time on some my old friends When I got finished I felt it was well worth reading Since I have read all the books it was great at the end you visited most of the other story lines and mentioned other themes and books and characters Well done Richard Salinsky
  • Topical spy thriller

    By pbeaum
    This is my eighth completed Danial Silva novel and they get better and better. This was the best. Very topical, great narrative, wonderful descriptions and thoroughly researched. Fast paced when it needed and slow paced when reflection was required. Great read.
