#1 New York Times Bestseller * #1 USA Today Bestseller * #1 Wall Street Journal Bestseller Now you see her.  Now you don't.  THE NEW GIRL.  A thriller of deception, betrayal, and vengeance. She was covered from head to toe in expensive wool and plaid, the sort of stuff one saw at the Burberry boutique in Harrods. She carried a leather bookbag rather than a nylon backpack. Her patent leather ballet slippers were glossy and bright. She was proper, the new girl, modest. But there was something else about her ... At an exclusive private school in Switzerland, mystery surrounds the identity of the beautiful raven-haired girl who arrives each morning in a motorcade fit for a head of state. She is said to be the daughter of a wealthy international businessman. In truth, her father is Khalid bin Mohammed, the much-maligned crown prince of Saudi Arabia. Once celebrated for his daring social and religious reforms, he is now reviled for his role in the murder of a dissident journalist. And when his only child is brutally kidnapped, he turns to the one man he can trust to find her before it is too late. What's done cannot be undone ... Gabriel Allon, the legendary chief of Israeli intelligence, has spent most of his life fighting terrorists, including the murderous jihadists financed by Saudi Arabia. Prince Khalid--or KBM, as he is known--has pledged to finally break the bond between the Kingdom and radical Islam. For that reason alone, Gabriel regards him as a valuable if flawed partner. Together they will become unlikely allies in a deadly secret war for control of the Middle East. The life of a child, and the throne of Saudi Arabia, hang in the balance. Both men have made their share of enemies. And both have everything to lose. Filled with dark humor, breathtaking twists of plot, and an unforgettable cast of characters, The New Girl is both a thrilling, page-turning tale of entertainment and a sophisticated study of political alliances and great-power rivalries in a dangerous world. And it is once again proof that Gabriel Allon is "one of fiction's greatest spies" (Kirkus) and Daniel Silva is "quite simply the best" (Kansas City Star) writer of foreign intrigue and suspense at work today.… (més)

Another outstanding thriller from Daniel Silva. This is a "ripped from the headlines" spy thriller and it is obvious Mr. Silva's research is quite thorough. I love Gabriel Allon but I also love the team of spies and assassins who are loosely aligned with Allon. If you like spy thrillers this one is for you. ( )

Silva's Gabriel Allon series remains one of the best as Silva's understanding of Middle Eastern politics shines: hatred between the two Muslim sects, between the hardliners and reformists, and the ongoing Arab-Israeli conflict. A young girl is kidnapped from a private school in Switzerland, and the ransom demand is that the crown prince of Saud Arabia (Khalid bin Mohammed) abdicate his claim to the throne. As a known reformer, KBM has a legion of enemies, and not knowing whom he can trust, he reaches out to the head of the Office, Gabriel Allon via Sarah Bancroft, now a curator at MoMA in NY, who has appeared in a number of prior novels. Gabriel agrees to help because he thinks KBM is better than the alternatives and because Gabriel lost a child violently too. Things go badly wrong, and Gabriel, his trusted team (Mikhail Abramov, Christopher Keller, Eli Lavon), and his British allies embark on a clever plan to unveil and embarrass the hidden manipulators. Silva blends in fictionalized versions of actual recent events, such as the killing of Jamal Khashoggi in a foreign embassy and the use of plutonium as a means of assassination. Gabriel's painting is a nice touch. 4.5 stars, rounded down, probably unfairly. ( )

I thought it was well written and enjoyable with a nice little twist at the end ( )

The New Girl is a spy novel involving the Israel, Saudi Arabia, England and the United States agents. There were many people involved, many scenes seeming to have been inspired by real world incidents but for the most part very difficult to follow. The question becomes why can't we just all get along? Because of the many characters involved and individual plots and murders The New Girl received three stars in this review. ( )

I believe I may have read another of his books but am not sure. Really enjoyed this novel and liked how he used recent events as a backdrop for his plot with a few twists thrown in. ( )
