Summary

#1 New York Times Bestseller

#1 USA Today Bestseller

#1 Wall Street Journal Bestseller

A Kirkus Best Book of 2018

A Real Book Spy Best Thriller of 2018

From Daniel Silva, the #1 New York Times-bestselling author, comes a modern masterpiece of espionage, love, and betrayal

She was his best-kept secret ...

In an isolated village in the mountains of Andalusia, a mysterious Frenchwoman begins work on a dangerous memoir. It is the story of a man she once loved in the Beirut of old, and a child taken from her in treason's name. The woman is the keeper of the Kremlin's most closely guarded secret. Long ago, the KGB inserted a mole into the heart of the West--a mole who stands on the doorstep of ultimate power.

Only one man can unravel the conspiracy: Gabriel Allon, the legendary art restorer and assassin who serves as the chief of Israel's vaunted secret intelligence service. Gabriel has battled the dark forces of the new Russia before, at great personal cost. Now he and the Russians will engage in a final epic showdown, with the fate of the postwar global order hanging in the balance.

Gabriel is lured into the hunt for the traitor after his most important asset inside Russian intelligence is brutally assassinated while trying to defect in Vienna. His quest for the truth will lead him backward in time, to the twentieth century's greatest act of treason, and, finally, to a spellbinding climax along the banks of the Potomac River outside Washington that will leave readers breathless.

Fast as a bullet, hauntingly beautiful, and filled with stunning double-crosses and twists of plot, The Other Woman is a tour de force that proves once again that "of all those writing spy novels today, Daniel Silva is quite simply the best" (Kansas City Star).

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Promotion to the top job in Israel's secret intelligence service hasn't changed Gabriel Allon's hands-on approach to spying one whit. He led the team that finally ended the run of ISIS mastermind Saladin (House of Spies, 2017), and now he's on the track of a Russian mole high up in British intelligence. His allies in MI6 don't like it, but even they know if anyone can ferret out the mole, it's Allon. Once again Silva follows the familiar structure his readers have come to love gathering the team, setting up the sting, laying on the tradecraft, dealing with the surprises but this time there is an even more elaborately detailed backstory than usual, and it is every bit as compelling as the tension-drenched drama slowly unspooling in the present and leading to a socko finale on the shores of the Potomac River. In a kind of homage to classic Cold War espionage, Silva draws on both history (the most famous spy of the twentieth century plays a role here) and fiction: there are strong elements of le Carré throughout, with the mole story itself echoing Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (1974) and Russian mastermind Sasha suggesting a contemporary version of George Smiley's nemesis, Karla. But Silva is never merely imitative; he uses these references and plot elements to add texture and resonance to his story, which puts a chilling, twenty-first century spin on the idea of Russian interference in global politics: Everyone loses, Allon concludes. Everyone except the Russians. Another jewel in the bedazzling crown of a spy-fiction master. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Silva's novels rarely dally on the lower rungs of best-seller lists. Expect this one, too, to leapfrog to the top.--Bill Ott Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "The actions of real-life British intelligence agent Kim Philby, who defected to the Soviet Union in 1963, drive bestseller Silva's excellent 18th novel featuring Israeli art restorer and spy Gabriel Allon (after 2017's House of Spies). Israel's intelligence division, known as the Office, is running an operation to save blown Russian agent Konstantin Kirov, one of Israeli's most valuable sources, and bring him to sanctuary in the U.K. When the operation goes bad, Gabriel and his team are drawn into a meticulously planned mission, involving both MI6 and the CIA, to unearth one of the Kremlin's highest-placed moles. Meanwhile, in Andalusia, a French journalist starts writing a memoir called The Other Woman, which contains the key to the mystery that Gabriel must solve. Philby, who died in Moscow three decades earlier in 1988, turns out to be at the bottom of it. In recent years, a number of thriller authors have focused on Philby, but Silva's treatment of him may be the most complex and fascinating yet. Readers will be enthralled by both the history and the up-to-the-minute plot that Silva spins with such finesse. 10-city author tour. (July) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
