House of Spies by Daniel Silva (October 2017)

House of Spies by Daniel Silva (October 2017)Legendary spy, assassin and art restorer Gabriel Allon is out for revenge ...

Just months after a deadly attack on America, 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 the gilded doorstep of Jean-Luc Martel and Olivia Watson.  A beautiful former British fashion model, Olivia pretends not to know the true source of Martel's enormous wealth,  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.

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.

A dazzling tale of avarice and redemption, set against the backdrop of the great conflict of our times.
