Description

#1 NYT Bestseller

#1 USA Bestseller

#1 WSJ Bestseller

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Black Widow comes the thrilling new summer blockbuster featuring legendary spy, assassin and art restorer Gabriel Allon.

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.  

Four months after the deadliest attack on the American homeland since 9/11, 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 of operatives to the south of France and to the gilded doorstep of Jean-Luc Martel and Olivia Watson. A beautiful former British fashion model, Olivia pretends not to know that the true source of Martel’s enormous wealth is drugs. 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. Together, under Gabriel’s skilled hand, they will become an unlikely pair of heroes in the global war on terror.

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 that will leave readers breathless long after they turn the final page.  

But House of Spies is more than just riveting entertainment; it is a dazzling tale 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).

    Way to slow of a start. I have read all his books and I gave up on this after 170 pages. Not like the others.

    Outstanding book! I finished in just a few sittings, and enjoyed the suspense and the development of the wonderful characters from previous books in this series. The scenes are so vividly written I feel like I'm part of the action, but so glad I'm not. It makes me grateful for all the talented and brilliant spies willing to sacrifice for world peace.

    Glad that you included all of the old characters It was good that many played a part in House of Spies I wonder why when Saladan was in the last vehicle the drone wasn't sent it to crash?

    Another great book by Daniel Silva. This book is about the operation to neutralize Saladin, the mastermind behind the terrorist attack on US soil in the previous Gabriel Allon novel. This time Saladin has his sights set on England, and the English, French, American and Israeli Counter-terrorism organizations cooperate to take down the criminal mastermind. These books are great - sometimes I have to stop reading, the situations being so fraught with danger that I have to take a breath before I read on. Mr Silva is a master of this genre!

    I can't go any further. Halfway through and this book puts me to sleep every time I listen. Pure boredom. The writer spends more effort dropping names than he does getting on with the story. The narrator inserts periods mid-sentence and other times joins two sentences as one. At times he sounds drunk. One star is a generous rating. Can I get a refund?

    Maybe not the best, but still quite satisfying and heart pounding. Silva is a superb writer and storyteller.

    I learned about Syria and the Assad destruction of his own country for the billions in blood money stashed around the world ... long before the refugee crisis from Daniel Silva. Now, Silva has taught us another lesson... about the funding of ISIS through drug money and the Iranian / North Korean connection. Thank you Daniel Silva for your enlightened writing.

    Long, rambling biographies of fellow agents, friends, enemies, lovers, and others interrupted occasionally by a bit of action. Lots of discussion of things in the past. Not a very good book. Silvia has trouble writing any more. The book needs to be tightened.

    Great book! I wish he could give us 1000 pages a la Tom Clancy in his prime. So now it's wait for the next one, get sucked in, read it in a day and wait ...
