Summary

Instant #1 New York Times Bestseller

"Fascinating, suspenseful, and bated-breath exciting…. Silva proves once again that he can rework familiar genre material and bring it to new life."

   -- Publishers Weekly, starred review



"Silva builds suspense like a symphony conductor.... A winner on all fronts."

   -- Booklist, starred review

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.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Gabriel Allon, art restorer and Israeli spy, is supposed to be dead, but he's really very much alive and about to take over the directorship of Israel's secret intelligence service (called the Office by those on the inside). But before that can happen, there's some field work that needs attending to: Hannah Weinberg, an old friend of Allon's and the director of the Weinberg Center for the Study of Anti-Semitism in France, was killed, along with hundreds of others (including several Israelis), when the Paris center was destroyed by a bomb in a carefully executed ISIS attack. Now, working with the French and eventually the Americans, Allon is leading a team charged with finding and killing the ISIS leader called Saladin, who orchestrated the Paris attack and is planning another, even bigger strike. To carry out his plan, Allon conscripts a Jewish doctor, Natalie Mizrahi, to pose as a Palestinian, get herself recruited by ISIS, and become the Office's eyes and ears within the organization. Echoing John le Carré's The Little Drummer Girl (1983), the narrative takes us not only inside an Islamic terrorist group, but also inside the head of an initially reluctant but then committed double agent, who must learn to subsume one identity beneath another. This is a compelling thriller as Silva layers tension into his narrative like a symphony conductor, with Natalie becoming more involved in Saladin's next attack, and Gabriel balancing his need for intelligence against his agent's safety; but the novel also affords a sobering, insightful, and multifaceted look at the overwhelming complexities of the seemingly interminable war in the Middle East. And, for series fans, Silva introduces a new and richly conceived character who is likely to become a regular cast member. A winner on all fronts.--Ott, Bill Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Bestseller Silva's riveting 16th novel featuring the legendary Israeli art restorer and spy Gabriel Allon (after 2015's The English Spy) finds Gabriel on the trail of a secret ISIS terrorist known as Saladin after a vicious attack in Paris kills Gabriel's longtime friend Hannah Weinberg, the leader of the Isaac Weinberg Center for the Study of Anti-Semitism in France. One of the escaped Paris terrorists, Safia Bourihane, has been dubbed the black widow, but far more interesting is another black widow, this one created by Gabriel himself. Natalie Mizrahi, a doctor in Jerusalem, is recruited, trained, and inserted into a massive operation to locate Saladin so Gabriel can kill him. Gabriel process of turning a civilian into a spy and the meticulous maneuvering of his team are fascinating, suspenseful, and bated-breath exciting. The satisfying open ending promises more to come in the Saladin saga. Silva proves once again that he can rework familiar genre material and bring it to new life. Nine-city author tour.
