Customer Reviews

The English Spy

I absolutely love the books by Daniel Silva. The English Spy is also a winner. The story is woven in history and also today's current events effortlessly while writing a suspenseful and very well written novel. His characters come to life on the pages as you read and seem to become personal friends. I would recommend these books to anyone who loves mysteries or suspense.

The English Spy

The English Spy is another multi-layered utterly riveting book from Daniel Silva, who is as knowledgable about his subject as he is deft in telling us the story. The fifteenth book in the Gabriel Allon series is set in a potpourri of cities - virtually all the sites of previous adventures - only a few months after the end of "The Heist" which was # 14 in the series. By doing this the clever and witty Mr. Silva is buying both us and his main character time before he must leave the field and take over The Office. As a result we see relatively little of the lovely and intriguing Mrs. Allon as Chiara is heavily pregnant with twins, but we are reunited with an array of characters good and bad from previous stories.
There are twists and turns galore, and with gore, and what you think you are seeing as you read may not be what you've got a few pages further in. Yes, The English Spy is Christopher Keller, who has become a reader favorite, but even the title can be interpreted in more ways than one. The opening series of events though sensational is misleading especially if the reader thinks this book is going to be about an unhappy English princess. It is not, and before jumping to conclusions, we would do well to think of another much loved British Royal who did die in a boat explosion and not in a car crash in a tunnel in Paris.
We see less of Gabriel's well meshed "Office" team, and more of some old friends and many dangerous enemies from the first fourteen books, but Allon and Keller are an awesome team for which no evil doer can be a match for long. First time readers will have no trouble jumping in at level 15 because Mr. Silva does give us back story written in his usual graceful style that informs but never bores. The pacing is perfection; the end of chapter hooks make it impossible not to read just one more and the denouement is everything for which one could hope. The scenes with Leah, Gabriel's first wife who has never recovered from their son's death in a car bombing, and Gabriel's painting of the nursery clouds will stay in my mind forever while Christopher Keller's final scene left me yearning for yet more of him. Gabriel Allon has occasionally been referred to as a 21st century James Bond so I will end with a nod to my previous favorite spy - when it comes to spy fiction nobody does it better than Daniel Silva and he has done it again.

The English Spy

What's to say??? Another amazing book about my favorite character ever! I loved how Mr. Silva drew in so many characters from other Allon books and created scenarios where they blended so well. I was beyond touched and cried like a baby in the scene where Gabriel repainted the clouds in the nursery. My heart is still breaking.... This may well be my favorite Allon book ever!
