“Fascinating.... An irresistible thriller, built on the realpolitik of today’s Middle East but deepened by the universality of human tragedy.” (Booklist)
“Enjoyable as ever. Allon is a smart creation…. There is a pleasing yin and yang here, of destruction and (re)creation.” (Financial Times)
“[A] chess game of intrigue…. Daniel Silva spins an addictive yarn.” (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)
“At times a brilliant novel tells us as much about the times we live in—and the struggles of the world, the global deceptions and tragedies—as well or better than journalism. Daniel Silva’s The New Girl is such a novel. Eye-opening and a joy to read.” (Bob Woodward)
“#1 NYT bestselling author Daniel Silva always gives you a summer treat. This summer’s treat is The New Girl.” (Hugh Hewitt)
“One year after producing what might be the best spy novel since John le Carre’s The Spy who Came in from the Cold, Daniel Silva is back with another riveting, twisting tale of espionage that further cements his legacy as one of the greatest novelists the genre has ever known.... It’s hard to fathom that Silva could ever top himself after last year’s The Other Woman, but he’s done just that. “ (The Real Book Spy)
“First-rate.... For the person who likes a great story of espionage and intrigue, Daniel Silva’s art restorer and master spy, Gabriel Allon, is a great match for Ian Fleming’s 007.” (The Daily News) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Inside Flap
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Daniel Silva comes a stunning new thriller of deception, betrayal, and vengeance.
What's done cannot be undone. . . .
At an exclusive school in Switzerland, mystery surrounds the identity of the beautiful 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 crown prince of Saudi Arabia. Once celebrated for his daring 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.
Gabriel Allon, the legendary chief of Israeli intelligence, has spent his life fighting terrorists, including the murderous jihadists financed by Saudi Arabia. Prince Khalid has pledged to 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. Both men have made their share of enemies. And both have everything to lose.--Bob Woodward --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

This author ruins me for weeks. I can’t pick up another book. No one writes this incredibly well. Books by authors I love become trash. Daniel please go home and started.
Everyone will see this book through the prism of their own political views. Gabriel is operating in real time now, and it becomes hard to separate the spy thriller from the nightly news. Silva is candid about how this novel took an entirely different direction after the horrific murder of an American resident Saudi journalist only last October. Is it as good as the earlier books? Not for me, but I can say that about any mystery or suspense series I’ve followed over decades. The New Girl is timely, and more quietly terrifying, than Silva’s more recent books, and worth reading.
Thank you! Until next year.

Now, The New Girl’s pace is set up on fast and won't let you put the book down. So fasten your seat belt and get ready for an amazing ride. You won't be just reading a book. You'll be swallowed whole and you'll be living the story side by side the usual characters.
Sarah Bancroft is back. Does she still have the skills Gabriel taught her? It's really difficult to forget something like that. Plus trying to live a normal life after knowing what the secret life can offer isn't easy. No wonder Sarah wants back. One does not simply leave a spy’s life behind.
Obviously Barak team is back in its full glory. Gabriel wouldn't want to work without his always quarrelling family, especially when embarking on a quest against the Russian tsar. Of course, Keller can't be left behind. He has been restored by Gabriel and now is a very important asset.
Where is Keller, there is Graham. Last time Gabriel and Graham didn't part their ways on a very friendly note. But Gabriel knows a thing or two that will help Graham to steady MI6 wobbly legs and put Graham on top of the game.
Gabriel’s capability to work as field based director is incredible. He's never been meant for sitting in the office. He needs to be in the midst of the action and only reluctantly leaves Mikhail to take the lead. But never for too long.
There is one part of Gabriel’s team that cannot be overlooked; his family. Chiara knows him the best and knows how to help Gabriel to find his way around the most cruel aspects of his work. Also the amazing twins cheer him up. Nobody can resist them. Especially not Gabriel.
In short, Daniel Silva has outdone himself again. The New Girl is unputdownable book with brilliant twists, dark humour and constant flow which won't allow you to stop reading. What a ride! It's a must read.
Racing between Geneva, London, Washington and Tel Aviv, there are (literally) explosive moments in the muddy trail followed by Gabriel and his mixed team of Israeli/MI6/CIA operatives. Incidental details are always a pleasing part of the mix: the sedate Essex village of Frinton-on-Sea provides one of the UK locations!
This is one of Mr Silva’s more "audacious" spy thrillers. In a Foreword he makes no secret of the fact that he has drawn on a real-life Saudi prince known by his initials. He fictionalizes the British Prime Minister (more Cameron than Johnson), but he avoids naming the Presidents of the USA and Russia (as previously, he calls Russia’s head of state “the Tsar”).
Bold, brisk and highly believable, THE NEW GIRL showcases Daniel Silva’s exceptional grasp of global politics. . This is my third Gabriel Allon adventure in a little over a year. It’s the best of the three – and one of the finest in the 20-plus series.
