The New Girl: A Novel | Daniel Silva
10 posts | 5 read | 10 to read
NOW YOU SEE HER NOW YOU DONT THE NEW GIRL From #1 New York Times bestselling author Daniel Silva comes a stunning new thriller of deception, betrayal, and vengeance. She was covered from head to toe in expensive wool and plaid, the sort of stuff one saw at the Burberry boutique in Harrods. She carried a leather bookbag rather than a nylon backpack. Her patent leather ballet slippers were glossy and bright. She was proper, the new girl, modest. But there was something else about her At an exclusive private school in Switzerland, mystery surrounds the identity of the beautiful raven-haired girl who arrives each morning in a motorcade fit for a head of state. She is said to be the daughter of a wealthy international businessman. In truth, her father is Khalid bin Mohammed, the much-maligned crown prince of Saudi Arabia. Once celebrated for his daring social and religious reforms, he is now reviled for his role in the murder of a dissident journalist. And when his only child is brutally kidnapped, he turns to the one man he can trust to find her before it is too late. Whats done cannot be undone Gabriel Allon, the legendary chief of Israeli intelligence, has spent most of his life fighting terrorists, including the murderous jihadists financed by Saudi Arabia. Prince Khalidor KBM, as he is knownhas pledged to finally break the bond between the Kingdom and radical Islam. For that reason alone, Gabriel regards him as a valuable if flawed partner. Together they will become unlikely allies in a deadly secret war for control of the Middle East. The life of a child, and the throne of Saudi Arabia, hang in the balance. Both men have made their share of enemies. And both have everything to lose. Filled with dark humor, breathtaking twists of plot, and an unforgettable cast of characters, The New Girl is both a thrilling, page-turning tale of entertainment and a sophisticated study of political alliances and great-power rivalries in a dangerous world. And it is once again proof that Gabriel Allon is one of fictions greatest spies (Kirkus) and Daniel Silva is quite simply the best (Kansas City Star) writer of foreign intrigue and suspense at work today.

Finished this one up in the setting sunlight on the back deck. Trying to soak up as much time outside that I can before the cold comes back!

While this isn‘t the strongest book in this series it was still interesting and rather topical. I think I like Gabriel more when he is actually allowed to be in the field.

Thank You Daniel Silva for this latest installment of the Gabriel Allon series. I feel like this book redeemed the last two which were a little stale (IMHO). The New Girl was a straight up thriller, with a fast paced plot and plenty of political intrigue to keep the pages turning. Lots of returning characters and believable stories lend an air of authenticity. As someone who follows Middle East politics this book was especially compelling.

BarbaraBB Perfect reading place! 4mo

This morning‘s view as I drink my coffee and dig into the new Gabriel Allon novel. I swear, Daniel Silva is part clairvoyant ....he writes about events before they occur. Another Middle East espionage event that occurred while he was writing this novel. 55 pages in and I‘m hooked 🎣

Kalalalatja What a view! 4mo
Samplergal I saw an interview that the book he was initially writing got put aside for this one. He grabbed the headline and wrote. Not really clairvoyant, but smart. 4mo
Megabooks Enjoy the book and the view! 4mo

Every summer I read one of Daniel Silva‘s Gabriel Allon novels in about two sittings. Expertly plotted and always topical they are a perfect example of solid beach/deck/dock reading. Can they be formulaic? Perhaps. However, it‘s a formula I have grown to love because it works every time. Who doesn‘t love a reluctant, world-saving art-restorer/super-spy...?

I wait patiently for Daniel Silva‘s new book each year, and I must say I am never disappointed. After a Saudi process is kidnapped, her father turns to Gabriel Allon to secure her release. What makes the plot work is that the crown prince must abdicate if he wishes to see his daughter alive again. A pariah for having ordered the murder of a journalist, the prince is a great character. Seemingly torn from recent headlines, this is a great read.

I‘m only on #15 (The English Spy) but I had to preorder the signed edition from B&N of the latest book in the series. I ❤️ Gabriel Allon. Daniel Silva writes some of the best spy thrillers, IMO.

Leftcoastzen I‘m only on the 5th one.Lovely collection!❤️ (edited) 5mo
DGRachel @Leftcoastzen I think The Heist is my favorite of the series so far, but they‘re all excellent and thank you! I hate that the first cover is so different from the rest and wish they hadn‘t changed the spine design for the last two, but 🤷🏻‍♀️ 5mo
GypsyKat Do these stand alone, or are they a series? 4mo
DGRachel @GypsyKat It‘s a series. I‘m sure you could read them out of order, but you would definitely lose some of the detail that makes the later books even more special. This is the first one: 4mo
GypsyKat @DGRachel Good to know, thank you! 4mo
