      Daniel Silva has entertained and even educated us, throughout the last 15 novels featuring the brilliant and enigmatic hero, Gabriel Allon - Israeli intelligence agent, super spy extraordinaire, art restorer, family man. We have been taken on journeys to different places throughout the globe, met a cast of varied, interesting and compelling characters. Creative and inventive plots filled with present day situations and past history that affects our lives today. The Black Widow, the latest 16th b [...]

    • Marvin Fein says:

      For over fifteen years, Daniel Silva has rewarded his readers with one of the best spy/action heroes of the last half century. Not only were the books page turning thrillers but they illuminated subjects such as the Holocaust and the Israeli-Palestinian tensions.With Black Widow, Silva has departed substantially from his former format. He has written an anti-Obama/Clinton political polemic with very little of Allon in the book. It is fitting that the book blaming the rise of ISIS solely on Ameri [...]

    • Lewis Weinstein says:

      Another excellent high tension Gabriel Allon story, this one more frightening than most since it deals with current unresolved and perhaps unresolvable terrorist acts. I won't say more about the plot since I don't want to spoil it. It's a good readEVER With one important exception, Silva repeatedly expresses great disdain for a not at all disguised President Obama, which I find overdone and offensive. On the other hand, there is almost no criticism of Israeli actions which, in my mind, have mad [...]

    • Jessica Jernigan says:

      I’ve been rereading the Gabriel Allon novels this summer, and, while I still find the early installments entertaining, it’s been interesting to see how much Silva has grown as a writer. The Black Widow is his best yet—which is bittersweet, since it seems that Allon really is about to assume a less active role. There’s the sense, in this novel, that one era is coming to a close and a new era is beginning. And, if this is the darkest of Silva’s stories so far, it’s because the real wor [...]

    • Peter says:

      A gripping spy thriller from Daniel Silva that reaches for heights set by John Le Carre but does not quite get there. The Black Widow was my introduction to Silva, even though he's been a prolific author for years and I'm a lover of spy novels and thrillers. How I let this excellent writer go unnoticed for so long, I do not know. I enjoyed the first quarter of the book; thoroughly adored the second two quarters of the book; then found the last quarter didn't live up to the intelligence of the mi [...]

    • Enb says:

      I love Gabriel Allon and have read all of the previous 15 books, but I found this book tiresome for a few reasons. First, Daniel Silva has apparently never met a non-beautiful woman worth writing about. As a female reader, this has gotten quite old by now. Isn't it enough to make the new woman featured in this book a multi-lingual, courageous doctor? Can't she just be normal looking and still be worth writing about? I've found Silva's insistence on creating a world populated almost exclusively b [...]

    • L.A. Starks says:

      Wow! A classic Daniel Silva novel--the best yet. Much has been made, and rightly so, of Silva's prescience. However, like all good thriller authors who dive deeply into their characters and settings, it is possible to extrapolate a fictional but very credible future from the present as Silva has done here. (For example, in Strike Price, the Chechen in the opening scene was written and accepted for first publication well before the Tsarnaev brothers' Boston attack.)What I particularly liked was t [...]

    • The Real Book Spy says:

      Read this review and more at TheRealBookSpyGabriel Allon, the wayward son of Israeli intelligence, returns to star in his sixteenth novel authored by Daniel Silva. Set shortly after the events of last year’s The English Spy, Gabriel is finally nearing the day when he will forever leave behind his dangerous work in the field to instead sit behind a desk as director of Israel’s foreign intelligence service, known simply as the Office. Gabriel, who apart from being the Office’s most legendary [...]

    • Barbara says:

      3.5 starsIn the last few 'Gabriel Allon' books the Israeli agent has been preparing to take charge of his country's spy agency, 'The Office.' Gabriel's just about to start the top job when ISIS terrorists stage horrific attacks in France and Belgium. Several Israeli citizens, as well as Gabriel's friend Hannah Weinberg, are among those killed in France. So Gabriel postpones his promotion (once again) to chase down 'Saladin', the ISIS mastermind who planned the bombings. To get close to the elusi [...]

    • Leah says:

      Good plot and story, although the author's disdain for President Obama was distracting and tiresome.

    • Jason says:

      I love the spy parts of the Allon series, but this book is really just a vehicle to write nasty things about "the American President" and blame Obama for all the woes of the world and to espouse the divine righteousness of Israel in dealing with the Muslims/Arabs. The last few books started to get more political, but they never took away from the story or the characters. This book is almost all political statement with very little else going for it. I hope Silva gets back to writing actual spy n [...]

    • Ware says:

      Reading The Black Widow during the summer of 2016 is absolutely terrifying. The fictitious events within its pages dovetail with the real events of Orlando, Paris, Nice, and Brussels.After an ISIS operative bombs a Jewish museum in Paris, killing one of Gabriel Alon's close friends, the French more or less blackmail the Israeli government into having Alon lead a search for the mastermind, a mysterious man called Saladin. To do so, he must insert a young Israeli female physician into the vipers n [...]

    • Jim says:

      Can the Gabriel Allon series get any better? This may be the best book in the series to date. Daniel Silva's writing skills continue to grow. The story could be something straight out of the news headlines. Silva's prescience is uncanny.Gabriel, new father to twins, is about to be named the Chief of The Office. Before this promotion though he will have to go back into the field for one final operation. ISIS detonates a massive bomb in a Jewish neighborhood of Paris. One of the victims was a frie [...]

    • Skip says:

      In his foreword, Silva talks about his decision to leave his plot the same as it was prescient about all of the violence that has occurred recently by terrorists. Starting with a horrific bombing of a Jewish Center in Paris, Gabriel Allon is compelled to find the mastermind by recruiting someone fresh to penetrate ISIS. He is almost too successful as the female doctor plays a central role is the subsequent mayhem perpetrated by the mastermind (code named Saladin.) The intelligence forces of Fran [...]

    • Steven Z. says:

      While discussing his new book THE BLACK WIDOW in the Music Hall in Portsmouth, NH author Daniel Silva pointed out that the Paris bombing described in his sixteenth installment of his Gabriel Allon series was a complete fabrication. In light of actual events that seem to coincide with the book’s publication, Silva seems clairvoyant, a trait that allows him to create plausible scenarios when compared to real events. In part, this characteristic is responsible for the popularity of his work, alon [...]

    • Bobbie Kalman says:

      Not as good as previous books. I wish he would not insert his political feelings in his books.

    • Monnie says:

      It's hard to believe this is the 16th book in the series featuring Gabriel Allon, perhaps my all-time favorite "hero." He's a sought-after restorer of priceless paintings, a spy, soon-to-be chief of Israel's secret intelligence service (albeit reluctantly) and, with his beautiful wife Chiara, the father of twins Raphael and Irene. So much do I love the books that I didn't even break a sweat at the thought of 544 pages - much longer than most books I read these days - and once I started, I admit [...]

    • Hope Mueller says:

      Always enjoy the Gabriel Allon cast of characters. This installment is not bloated as some of the earlier in the series became. Although somewhat predictable, immersing yourself in this world for a period is like visiting friends, comfortable and entertaining. Always love the history lessons built in, along with the scary level of premonition found in these books.

    • Cheryl says:

      Gabriel Allon is once again in top form in this timely novel! Called in to service to thwart a terrorist attack by ISIS, Allon places an agent, a would-be recruit, into the heart of the caliphate in Syria.She is a young doctor who travels from Jerusalem to Paris and then to Syria in an attempt to learn the identity of the plot's mastermind, an elusive leader who calls himself Saladin. This novel is tense and suspenseful, while building a sense of urgency and foreboding that will hold your intere [...]

    • Thyago | MrsMargotBlog says:

      mrs-margot/ This is a story that flows naturally, with an easy reading due to its small chapters and I must say it was my first reading of this highly successful author, but this book is the 16th in a series entitled "Gabriel Allon" and although Read very well as an independent reading, because the author knows how to contextualize everything, the truth is that I believe that there may be details and even relations with some characters that we would understand better if we had followed the serie [...]

    • Steve Sparks says:

      I am a big fan of Silva, so it pains me to give this book a 2-star rating. Normally, I would never give 2 stars because I don't finish books that warrant that rating. But I did finish this because I have read everyone of his other books and I really like the Allon character and Silva's writing. Like his other books, this one was well-written and fast-paced. I have 4 problems with it, which are a little hard to describe without spoilers, but I'll try. (1) In this book Allon almost felt like a sec [...]

    • Amy says:

      Didn't we do this before? Smart young heroine gets trained as a spy and infiltrates a very bad man's evil network. Sadly, one of my favorite summer guilty pleasures has gone steadily downhill the past few years. Not sure if Gabriel Allon will return next year or not, but sadly I might have to retire.

    • Kent Beck says:

      Sad and polemical end to the seriesOne shot at Obama I could stand but too many and they are just annoying. I not be reading any further sequels.

    • Dazz says:

      I absolutely love the Gabriel Allon series, but I'm afraid this latest is a disappointment.I love the reoccurring characters, but after 16 episodes they are starting to wear a little thin. Especially since the author feels the need to explain them in every book, using essentially the same boilerplate. It is starting to get cheesy.I suppose its hard to come up with a story that is truly original, but seriously you might as well just re-read le Carré's Little Drummer Girl.Unfortunately one cannot [...]

    • Ed says:

      I downgraded this book from 4 stars to three because the more I thought about it, the more disappointing the end game was. Daniel Silva has crafted a page turning spy thriller populated by strong, memorable characters and present Israel's more muscular approach in confronting ISIS than the US via his protagonist Gabriel Allon. Unfortunately, without divulging the plot, the ending left justice deferred until the authors next book. I would think that Daniel Silva would find it completely unnecessa [...]

    • Lisa Barbour says:

      This is my favorite series of books, but I was very disappointed in this one. I got tired of the political comments, the plot was nothing new, and Gabriel Allon didn't have much to do. I will reread the others in the series, but unfortunately, this book was not for me.

    • Robert James says:

      Great book. If you want a lesson on how ISIS started and the current US policy toward ISIS all wrapped up in a thrilling Allon adventure, this book is for you. And if it's not for you, you should read it anyway.

    • Tom Mathews says:

      The 16th adventure of art historian turned Israeli assassin Gabriel Allon is entertaining and reads like the author has put a lot of research into his subject. I use the term 'reads like' because there are very few people who have a comprehensive knowledge of the inner workings of ISIS. The ISIS that Silva created in his book differs only slightly from the ISIS of my imagination.) I haven't previously read any of Daniel Silva's books but that didn't hinder my enjoyment if this book. There was so [...]

    • Harpercollins Canada says:

      The Black Widow by Daniel Silva is the 16th novel in Daniel Silva’s Gabriel Allon series – and yet, it’s been hailed his most timely and most powerful novel yet. Below I will explain why, but first, some context:Gabriel Allon is the protagonist in Silva’s internationally bestselling thriller and espionage series. Allon works for Israeli intelligence on international missions. His ancestors are of German decent; most notably his grandfather, who was a German expressionist painter. This is [...]
