Why does Silva force me to keep going to the end once I start one of his books? well, I finally figured it out. Its the carrot he dangles at the end of each chapter-the lead into the next one. The dangle is so enticing you must keep going. And when you do, you keep reading until the next dangle, and so on and so forth. Its exhausting! And this year, after reading The New Girl and finding I must fill in time until next year's book arrives, I took the liberty of rereading Daniel's first novel. And I am glad that I did, because I would really like to credit Daniel on the stylistic improvement he has made from one novel to the next. His first book was quite adequate for me, but what a difference between first novel and most recent. Its hard to beat excellent as a starting point, but Silva has gone from excellent to superb.
As for The New Girl, as Silva admits, he set out to explore Israeli-Arab relationships in the Middle East, and I can only imagine him tearing out his hair over the Kashoggi incident and its timing. But the novel recovers well and is not only a delightful read but also an exposition of the too often misunderstood nature of Middle Eastern relationships. Much more talk, exchange and assistance goes on between those peoples than we in the West either know or wish to acknowledge. The New Girl is not only a delightful read but also a fictional primer for those who want to know more about this complicated part of the world. It certainly kept me going to the end and I can only highly recommend it as another superb novel in the Gabriel Allon series. But, Daniel, I have a nagging worry: Gabriel is getting somewhat long in the tooth and, even at my advanced age, I am fearful of outliving him, for his departure will leave a great emptiness and I am not sure there is another author of your calibre who can so readily and easily fill my leisure time-for at least 2 days of the year, anyway.
In all my 78 years no other author has impressed me as much as Daniel Silva. Everything that I have read has captivated me from the 1st page, the guy is a genius and I look forward to his next

Now, The New Girl’s pace is set up on fast and won't let you put the book down. So fasten your seat belt and get ready for an amazing ride. You won't be just reading a book. You'll be swallowed whole and you'll be living the story side by side the usual characters.
Sarah Bancroft is back. Does she still have the skills Gabriel taught her? It's really difficult to forget something like that. Plus trying to live a normal life after knowing what the secret life can offer isn't easy. No wonder Sarah wants back. One does not simply leave a spy’s life behind.
Obviously Barak team is back in its full glory. Gabriel wouldn't want to work without his always quarrelling family, especially when embarking on a quest against the Russian tsar. Of course, Keller can't be left behind. He has been restored by Gabriel and now is a very important asset.
Where is Keller, there is Graham. Last time Gabriel and Graham didn't part their ways on a very friendly note. But Gabriel knows a thing or two that will help Graham to steady MI6 wobbly legs and put Graham on top of the game.
Gabriel’s capability to work as field based director is incredible. He's never been meant for sitting in the office. He needs to be in the midst of the action and only reluctantly leaves Mikhail to take the lead. But never for too long.
There is one part of Gabriel’s team that cannot be overlooked; his family. Chiara knows him the best and knows how to help Gabriel to find his way around the most cruel aspects of his work. Also the amazing twins cheer him up. Nobody can resist them. Especially not Gabriel.
In short, Daniel Silva has outdone himself again. The New Girl is unputdownable book with brilliant twists, dark humour and constant flow which won't allow you to stop reading. What a ride! It's a must read.
Racing between Geneva, London, Washington and Tel Aviv, there are (literally) explosive moments in the muddy trail followed by Gabriel and his mixed team of Israeli/MI6/CIA operatives. Incidental details are always a pleasing part of the mix: the sedate Essex village of Frinton-on-Sea provides one of the UK locations!
This is one of Mr Silva’s more "audacious" spy thrillers. In a Foreword he makes no secret of the fact that he has drawn on a real-life Saudi prince known by his initials. He fictionalizes the British Prime Minister (more Cameron than Johnson), but he avoids naming the Presidents of the USA and Russia (as previously, he calls Russia’s head of state “the Tsar”).
Bold, brisk and highly believable, THE NEW GIRL showcases Daniel Silva’s exceptional grasp of global politics. . This is my third Gabriel Allon adventure in a little over a year. It’s the best of the three – and one of the finest in the 20-plus series.
