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).

    THe book only came with 31 pages? I paid 9.99 for one chapter of a book?

  • Spellbinding

    By Kelliejs
    From the opening I was hooked. The vivid imagery, the deep characters and fast paced story line - I could barely put the book down.
  • Silva does it again...another hit!

    By Dsgar
    This is another terrific story in the Gabriel Allon series. Even more humor this time but still the "arc angel of spies" saves the day and does right by the people who help him. Daniel, you simply must do a movie with Gabriel, three in fact should allow you to combine the best of your stories. Get Ron Howard to do them. Look what a great job he did with Dan Brown's stories and yours are better!
  • Good Story, Bad Details

    By Lakewaco
    Storyline was pretty good. Book got bogged down with too much trivial detail which made it difficult to follow all the names and name changes. Would have been better at half the length.
  • Great to the end

    By Happy & Stisfied
    Once again Daniel Silvia has put together a story that holds one bound until the very end. I can't wait for another installment.
