A Kirkus Best Book of 2018

From Daniel Silva, the #1 New York Times–bestselling author, comes a modern masterpiece of espionage, love, and betrayal

She was his best-kept secret …

In an isolated village in the mountains of Andalusia, a mysterious Frenchwoman begins work on a dangerous memoir. It is the story of a man she once loved in the Beirut of old, and a child taken from her in treason’s name. The woman is the keeper of the Kremlin’s most closely guarded secret. Long ago, the KGB inserted a mole into the heart of the West—a mole who stands on the doorstep of ultimate power.

Only one man can unravel the conspiracy: Gabriel Allon, the legendary art restorer and assassin who serves as the chief of Israel’s vaunted secret intelligence service. Gabriel has battled the dark forces of the new Russia before, at great personal cost. Now he and the Russians will engage in a final epic showdown, with the fate of the postwar global order hanging in the balance.

Gabriel is lured into the hunt for the traitor after his most important asset inside Russian intelligence is brutally assassinated while trying to defect in Vienna. His quest for the truth will lead him backward in time, to the twentieth century’s greatest act of treason, and, finally, to a spellbinding climax along the banks of the Potomac River outside Washington that will leave readers breathless.

Fast as a bullet, hauntingly beautiful, and filled with stunning double-crosses and twists of plot, The Other Woman is a tour de force that proves once again that “of all those writing spy novels today, Daniel Silva is quite simply the best” (Kansas City Star).

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 09, 2018 – The actions of real-life British intelligence agent Kim Philby, who defected to the Soviet Union in 1963, drive bestseller Silva's excellent 18th novel featuring Israeli art restorer and spy Gabriel Allon (after 2017's House of Spies). Israel's intelligence division, known as the Office, is running an operation to save blown Russian agent Konstantin Kirov, one of Israeli's most valuable sources, and bring him to sanctuary in the U.K. When the operation goes bad, Gabriel and his team are drawn into a meticulously planned mission, involving both MI6 and the CIA, to unearth one of the Kremlin's highest-placed moles. Meanwhile, in Andalusia, a French journalist starts writing a memoir called The Other Woman, which contains the key to the mystery that Gabriel must solve. Philby, who died in Moscow three decades earlier in 1988, turns out to be at the bottom of it. In recent years, a number of thriller authors have focused on Philby, but Silva's treatment of him may be the most complex and fascinating yet. Readers will be enthralled by both the history and the up-to-the-minute plot that Silva spins with such finesse. 10-city author tour.

Customer Reviews

Sluggish, Plodding & Uninspired

Having read each book twice in this remarkable series, The Other Woman was hugely disappointing: I found it sluggish, plodding and uninspired. Missing was the colorful charm and nuance of his cast of characters. Gone was the exotic locales, page-turning plot and fierce focus, traditional DaSilva trademarks. Instead, the book felt rushed, and mired down in repetitive details of an old British spy scandal. It took nearly half the book to meet the other woman - a remarkably long and tedious introduction. Not the authors finest hour.

The Other Woman

I’m a big fan of Silva’s work. But this one was disappointing.

Another great one

He did it again.
