Editorial Reviews


“Heart-stopping.” (Washington Post)

“A literary powder keg.” (Huffington Post)

-”An exceptional spy thriller, well written and timely, weaving history seamlessly into a sumptuous page-turner of a novel.... Longtime fans will revel in familiar faces... and Silva’s understated but deft writing.... For newcomers, well, what are you waiting for?” (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

“Silva builds suspense like a symphony conductor.... A winner on all fronts.” (Booklist, starred review)

The Black Widow probably is the most important book of the summer, no matter who you are or where you live in America.” (Hugh Hewitt)

“Slow-burn suspense.... We stayed up way too late... but we justified the sleeplessness as a learning opportunity: amidst the action, Silva gives a surprisingly thorough crash course in the history of ISIS and the Middle East.” (iBooks Reviews)

“To say that Daniel Silva is a best-selling author is a bit like saying Henry Aaron was a decent home-run hitter.” (Dallas News)

“One of fiction’s greatest spies.... Allon remains as compelling as ever…. A dark thriller for difficult times.” (Kirkus, starred review)

“Fascinating, suspenseful, and bated-breath exciting.” (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

“A stunning new thriller of high stakes international intrigue…. Silva’s most timely and powerful novel yet.” (Broadway World)

From the Back Cover

A Network of Terror

A web of Deceit

A Deadly Game of Vengeance

Legendary spy and art restorer Gabriel Allon 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 strikes again.

They call him Saladin . . .

He is a terrorist mastermind whose ambition is as grand as his nom de guerre, a man so elusive that even his nationality is not known. Shielded by sophisticated encryption software, his network communicates in total secrecy, leaving the West blind to his planning—and leaving Gabriel no choice but to insert an agent into the most dangerous terrorist group the world has ever known. She is an extraordinary young doctor, as brave as she is beautiful. At Gabriel’s behest, she will pose as an ISIS recruit in waiting, a ticking time bomb, a black widow out for blood.
