From the #1 New York Times bestselling author ofÂ The Black WidowÂ comes the thrilling newÂ summerÂ blockbuster featuring legendary spy, assassin and art restorer Gabriel Allon.
A heart-stopping tale of suspense, Daniel Silvaâs runaway bestseller,Â The Black Widow, was one of 2016âs biggest novels. Now, inÂ House of Spies,Â Gabriel Allon is back and out for revenge â determined to hunt down the worldâs most dangerous terrorist, a shadowy ISIS mastermind known only as Saladin.Â Â
Four months after the deadliest attack on the American homeland since 9/11, terrorists leave a trail of carnage through Londonâs glittering West End.Â The attack is a brilliant feat of planning and secrecy, but with one loose thread.Â
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 Martelâs 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 Gabrielâs skilled hand, they will become an unlikely pair of heroes in the global war on terror.
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.Â Â
ButÂ House of SpiesÂ is more than just riveting entertainment; it is a dazzling tale of avarice and redemption, set against the backdrop of the great conflict of our times. And it proves once again why Daniel Silva is âquite simply the bestâ (Kansas City Star).
