#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)

Each July, I wait, and not patiently, for the new [a:Daniel Silva|29085|Daniel Silva|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1240154365p2/29085.jpg] book. The Protagonist Gabiel Allon is my guilty pleasure fantasy man-Sharp, Good Looking, Educated-the man has it all going on! My summer would not be complete if I did not spend long luscious moments with him, on my back porch with an afternoon glass of wine.

Silva continues the fast paced, jet setting chaos-with Gabriel and the Office hunting down the bad guys. A friend from past books takes a starring role and old feelings are brought to the surface, but a happy ending is in sight.

There are some awful scenes (and I mean really, really, heart wrenching) so beware gentle readers. The magic of Silva is that he can make me shout out loud and laugh my a-- off(as I did last summer with The Other Woman) or scream and gasp as did this week. His words just flow, even with the fast paced action that is always going on.

If you have never read Silva-there is no reason for you to read this book-until you have read the 18 others that come before. I know that sounds like a big commitment, trust me if you like a good thriller, this series is one of the best.

Oh Gabriel, parting is such sweet sorrow! July is so far away....*heavy sigh* ( )

I was quite skeptical about reading this book because of its storyline and the real life person on whom it is based. But I’m also a huge fan of the series, so I decided to give it a try. I was very glad to read the author’s clarification in the foreword and that surely made me a little excited to read.

While this was a very fast paced read and I finished it in just a few hours, I won’t say this is one of his finer stories. It was quite engaging even if not realistic for almost the first half, but the latter half which features the main operation spearheaded by Gabriel was too unbelievable for even an entertaining spy thriller. I also hated that the “character” whom I don’t want to talk about was almost getting a redemption arc (because reality is much darker and messy). So I was prepared to end the book on a disappointing note but I did not see the last line coming. I don’t think I’ve ever waited for a next book so much before, but I just want to know what the hell happened.

I guess I just don’t have much to say about this book. If you’ve read the previous 18 books of Gabriel’s adventures, then you shouldn’t give this a miss. It doesn’t really work well as a stand-alone for new readers though - you definitely need to know the events that occur in the previous installment The Other Woman to understand this book better. I’m also not really convinced that the use of major horrifying events from around the world worked for the plot of this novel. I know I’ll be continuing the series but I won’t ever be revisiting this one. ( )

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. ( )
