House of Spies (Gabriel Allon Series #17) by Daniel Silva

#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).

Once started you cannot put the book down. It feels like real life and each time I read one of Mr Silva's books I want to hop a plane and visit Israel to feel what his characters feel. Starting the countdown to the next installment

July is pyrotechnics month for many, and I am not talking about the fireworks on the 4th because it is in July that the new Gabriel Allon book by Daniel Silva comes out, and his readers are always ready and waiting for a dazzling display of hair raising, eye opening adventures. This year is no exception. The House of Spies begins immediately, or perhaps shortly after The Black Widow ended and with an even greater catastrophe. Multiple Security – read spy – Services are called into action, and over the next several chapters we meet old friends and enemies as well as some new ones. It seems there is an endless supply of terror, an appetite for drugs and a thirst for power that needs to be met by a small but determined band of sometimes rather unlikely heroes. Mr. Silva does his homework and has an encyclopedic knowledge of the mid-East and its problems, which he shares in the most spine tingling manner imaginable. This is far from fluff or fantasy; it is the stuff of nightmares, but luckily Mr. Silva’s stylish and graceful prose carries us along to the end without letting the story become too horrible to bear. This is not the first time Mr. Silva has displayed a certain prescience about current happenings in the world. There are attacks in the UK and France that were written before similar attacks actually took place. The physical Caliphate’s morphing into a cyber-Caliphate is discussed here too – and remember this was written months ago. There are also timely references to the new administrations in the US and other countries and how best to deal with them. I can think of several people in our government who would do well to read Daniel Silva. In The House of Spies, Gabriel is now the head of The Office, but if you think that means he won’t figure in the action, you do not know Mr. Silva or Gabriel Allon. While I did miss the beautifully crafted scenes of Gabriel at work as an art restorer – his working cover, but he does not need a cover these days, so it is quite understandable. We do get lovely moments with Chiara and the twins, and we meet many old friends, about whom we are given sufficient information to refresh a poor memory or catch up a first time reader. Most of the villains are despicable, but they can also be interesting, and even intelligent. There is a certain satisfaction in seen true evil – even in fictional form – wiped off the earth. What has gone around most definitely comes around and with quite an impact. What I love most about Daniel Silva’s 17 Gabriel Allon books are the characters, who are moving in my mind beyond friends into extended family, the humor of which there is a good deal even in the blackest moments, and the hooks at the end of each chapter, which are as addicting as oranges and pomegranates. The informative and enlightening afterword is well worth reading. This book was different in some ways from the others. The differences stem largely from that fact that younger agents are doing more of the heavy lifting, but it in no way detracts from excitement, suspense, urgency or desire to see the good guys save the world or at least a corner of it. The writing is masterful, the story cogent, and thankfully the real world has not yet become quite this dreadful. I read Daniel Silva’s books much too fast because I can not stop myself. This year was no exception. Hurry up and dive into The House of Spies, even the cover is gorgeous.

A good storyteller lets you say ‘just one more chapter’. When you finish a book written by a great storyteller you say ‘when is the next one coming and why did I read this so fast?’ An exceptional story teller takes you seamlessly from one book in a series to the next one without ever missing a beat. The author took us from The Black Widow to the dessert in Morocco using most of the usual suspects we’ve come to know and love and without whom a Daniel Silva book would be incomplete. There are even appearances by the former leader of The Office and the new leader’s wife. The nemesis, Saladin, remains also. After all he was a loose thread and The Office does not like loose threads. The man had to be dispensed with! Along with the intrigue there is a course in spycraft without which no Daniel Silva novel would be complete. We learn about how the hashish trade finances ISIS and exactly how they do it and what there end plan really is. With his usual prescience the author predicted the end of a physical Caliphate and the beginning of a cyber-caliphate. The attacks in Nice and the UK were written into the book before they actually happened. There are the lessons in how to deal with the new administration in Washington along with old allies in the UK and France. There will be no more spoilers I promise. But suffice to say Gabriel Allon is a restorer. A restorer of art but also of people. This book is no exception and as Gabriel said in the Black Widow ‘we’re Jewish Natalie, we’re matchmakers at heart’. Daniel is no exception!

Gabriel Allon and his team are hunting for the ISIS mastermind known as Saladin. Tips lead to France and a wealthy well-known hotelier and businessman by the name of Jean-Luc Martel. But Martel’s wealth comes from the lucrative world of drugs, namely hashish. Martel’s laundered drug money has helped fund ISIS terrorist acts. Gabriel must get Martel on his side to find his suppliers and ultimately lead him to Saladin. He learns of Martel’s Moroccan supplier who is often accompanied by his friend Khalil and Gabriel is sure that Khalil is Saladin. He learns that Saladin has had plastic surgery done on his face but nothing can disguise the limp. Gabriel is sure he will get Saladin and wipe him from the face of the earth. He is patient and there is nothing more dangerous than a patient man.

The first Silva book I read was Moscow Rules. I immediately became enthralled with Gabriel Allon and have read all of Silva’s books, including his first few non-Allon focused books. Silva has become a master of weaving fiction with reality. His lifelike characters scaryingly seem too real for fiction. "House of Spies” builds on earlier works with returning characters, both good and bad. Silva carefully leads the reader into the word of criminals and terrorists and how the world’s foremost intelligence agencies, led by Israeli super spy, Gabriel Allon, infiltrate and defeat these malevenant masterminds. Silva’s storytelling is mesmerizing as he patiently leads the reader deeper and deeper into the plot and finally the dramatic conclusion.

"House of Spies" is Mr Silva's best yet! Took it to the beach for a summer read. Started reading and became totally engrossed! At the end of each chapter, I would say "one more..." and before I knew it, I had read all the twists, turns and surprises, missed lunch and had one helluva sunburn...and I would do it again...except with SPF40!

This latest installment in the Gabriel Allon series once again leaves you wanting more. Did not get to read one of these Daniel Silva novels until 2013, but was immediately captivated by the characters and storylines. Read the entire series before the next book came out. Then could hardly wait for 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017. Best read with computer open to Google Earth to view Israeli, European, and other international locations as the action unfolds. If you have not read this series, time to jump in. Every book is written so that you can enjoy it by itself, but if you become a fan, you want it all . . . and then you want more.
