House Of Spies by Daniel Silva is the #1 WSJ Bestseller, and #1 USA Bestseller. From the #1 NYT’s bestselling author of ‘The Black Widow’ comes the thrilling new blockbuster that includes Gabriel Allon, the legendary spy, art restorer, and assassin.
4 months after the deadliest assault on the American homeland since Sept. 11, terrorists leave a trail of carnage and destruction via London’s glittering West End. The assault is a brilliant feat of secrecy and planning, however with one loose thread.
The thread leads Gabriel Allon and his crew of operatives to the south of France and to the gilded doorstep of Jean-Luc Martel and Olivia Watson. An attractive former British fashion model, Olivia pretends to not know that the true source of Martel’s monumental wealth is drugs. And Martel, likewise, turns a blind eye to the very fact he’s doing business with a person whose goal is the very destruction of the West. Together, under Gabriel’s expert hand, they may turn into an unlikely pair of heroes in the international war on terror.
Written in seductive and elegant prose, the story moves swiftly from the grit of Casablanca to the glamour of Saint-Tropez and, finally, to an electrifying climax that may leave readers breathless long after they flip the final page.
But House of Spies is more than just riveting leisure; it’s a dazzling story of avarice and redemption, set against the backdrop of the great conflict of our times. And it proves once again why Daniel Silva is “quite simply the best” (Kansas City Star).
A heart-stopping story of suspense, Daniel Silva’s runaway bestseller, The Black Widow, was considered one of 2016’s greatest novels. Now, in House of Spies, Gabriel Allon is back and out for revenge – determined to seek out the world’s most dangerous terrorist, a shadowy ISIS mastermind known only as Saladin.
“An irresistible thriller…. The phrase ‘#1 New York Times best-selling author’ gets bandied about a lot (Which list? For how long?), but in Silva’s case, it means exactly what it says.” (Booklist, starred review)
“Written by one of our greatest living spy novelists, House of Spies gives us protagonist Gabriel Allon in his 17th adventure. The novel features Silva’s taut and compelling dialogue and keen insight into the human psyche.” (Dallas Morning News)
“Riveting…. Silva’s writing has lost none of its elegance. He provides readers with just enough real-world geopolitics to make sense of his narrative, and his depictions of the different styles of the world’s diverse intelligence services is fascinating as always.… Another chilling glimpse inside global terror networks from a gifted storyteller.” (Kirkus, starred review)
