Israeli superspy Gabriel Allon recruits Natalie, an Arab-speaking French Jewish doctor, and creates a new identity for her that will make her attractive to ISIS: she becomes Leila, a Palestinian ‘black widow’ thirsting for vengeance after the death of her husband at the hands of the Zionists. The infiltration works, although Natalie/Leila’s first meeting with Saladin is under circumstances very different to what she or Allon expected.
This is Silva’s 16th thriller featuring Gabriel Allon. They have inevitably become formulaic. Israel’s military – and moral – superiority over the Islamists is hammered home, although this time round the Jordanian secret service has a part to play, as also (and more regularly) do the British and French services and, of course, the CIA. The climax in Washington is nothing less than apocalyptic. We are once again reminded that no matter how conclusively the West defeats Islamic State (and Al-Qaeda and the Taliban) on the battlefield, 'the patron saints of terror' will continue to bring their war to our cities and our streets.
Another page-turning, nerve-shredding read from Daniel Silva.

For the first time, I started getting impatient with Silva as the stable of old themes, baddies and stereotypes are trotted out. I have no objection to the same characters appearing, they are like comforting characters and you know who and what they are. But a lot to me in this book struck me as a good copy and paste job...pretty disappointing...
Daniel Silva is simply a master story teller , The story line feels very close to the actual truth and in that regard paints a very distressing picture for the future of the world but don't let that put you off reading this great thriller.
Daniel Silva continues to be a man with a story to tell. In a word, Brilliant.
