House of Spies
House of Spies | Daniel Silva
29 posts | 20 read | 1 reading | 8 to read
A brand new thriller from the master of contemporary espionage, featuring Gabriel Allon - international art restorer, spy and assassin. A heart-stopping tale of suspense, Daniel Silva's runaway bestseller, The Black Widow, was one of 2016's biggest novels. Now, in House of Spies, Gabriel Allon is back and out for revenge - determined to hunt down the world's most dangerous terrorist, a shadowy ISIS mastermind known only as Saladin. Just months after a deadly attack on America, terrorists leave a trail of carnage through London's glittering West End. The attack is a brilliant feat of planning and secrecy, but with one loose thread. The thread leads Gabriel Allon and his team to the south of France and the gilded doorstep of Jean-Luc Martel and Olivia Watson. A beautiful former British fashion model, Olivia pretends not to know the true source of Martel's enormous wealth. 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. 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. A dazzling tale of avarice and redemption, set against the backdrop of the great conflict of our times. Silva has inherited the mantle of king of the spy thriller from John le Carr, and is taking the genre into the fascinating, terrifying world of 21st century espionage. Praise for The Black Widow: 'Fascinating, suspenseful and bated-breath exciting' Publishers Weekly 'A literary powder keg ... Allon is back and better than ever' Huffington Post 'Feels so contemporary that at times you wonder if you're reading non-fiction ... Shocking' Herald Sun

I‘m nearly caught up with this series, one more to go and then I‘m onto the new one! Another great addition to the series. Scary how close terrorism is to us everyday.

Well it has taken me forever to finish this book (booo to the constant sickness that was December) but I finally did. And it was good. Not my favourite in this series but it was still a good read.

Silva is one of my favorite espionage writers and I will happily suspend disbelief any time Gabriel Allon is planning on saving the world.

Day 3 #AllTheBooksOf2017 #BestSequelYouRead I only read 3 sequels in 2017: so while this wasn‘t a favorite Gabriel Alon book, it was my favorite sequel of 2017

emilyhaldi I wonder if i read any sequals in 2017 🤔🤔 I don't usually read series but perhaps I need to change that! 2y
Andrew65 @emilyhaldi There are definitely some great series out there. 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage I‘m on Gabriel Book two right now! #youremyenabler 2y

#catchingup on #fallintobooks #day12 - #goldandsilver

Seems the more prolific a writer is, the more likely they occupy a gap in my reading. Anyone know where to start with Silva?

So some of you may remember that a while back I won one of Liberty's giveaways (😆) - but you would not believe the trouble I've had with my post office holding it hostage! Seriously, I know I live in Brooklyn but I've never had them give me so much trouble about leaving a package on my stoop.

But that's neither here nor there, because I've got my hands on them now!! Yay! Thanks again @Liberty - you rock!! #bookmail

Liberty Hooray! 🎉 2y
Breanne1 I can't wait to read the new Silva. Congrats and enjoy 😊 2y

It took me about 100 pages to really get into the latest installment of the Gabriel Allon series but once I was hooked, I was fully invested. In fact my hubby's friend called me a #bookHermit because I was so antisocial all day preferring the book over his company 😜For Silva fans this book doesn't disappoint ❤️

Mdargusch Sounds like I need to check this out. 2y
Aleida Just finished Black Widow and while it wasn't bad, it wasn't like his earliest works. 2y
Cinfhen I thought Black Widow was better than this one😜It wasn't my favorite @Aleida 2y

Israeli secret agent Gabriel Allon has unfinished business with the terrorist known as Saladin. After an attack in London, Allon is determined to put his nemesis down. The book has a tight plot and some fully developed supporting characters. If you are a Daniel Silva fan, you won't be disappointed in his latest effort.

I am conflicted over this book. I want to race through it to see what happens but I also want to savor it because there won't be another one for at least a year. Anyone else have similar feelings about books?

Read-eat-travel-repeat All the time! Especially when books are in series I enjoy... 3y
