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).

Reviews

  • Good, just too political

    Another good book in the series. I can’t give it 5 stars due to Silva’s words about American politics. It’s obvious where he stands on our current situation and he made that clear in his typical mainstream news media remarks. Leave that out and it would have been a 5 star rating.

    Good book with lots of action and a somewhat surprising ending. Silva books are all well written but the spy plots do not vary over his many books.

    Implausible but an intoxicating read. Well paced but patient enough in little details to make the real story of Kim Philby come alive. Ideological betrayal motivation that Overcame lust,money and other reasons for selling others down the river!
  • A 13 page sample?

    Okay, this book has really good reviews, but why would I buy a book from an author who is new to me after only 13 pages? And not very compelling pages, at that. Sorry, but no thanks.

    I wait patiently for each of his books over the years and devour them as they are released. I am never disappointed until the end when there is no more pages. This last one was a 5 star Michelin masterpiece. And now I sadly place it down amongst its great brothers and sisters on my all star shelf. Thank you again Daniel.

    Mediocre at best. Disappointing read.
