Art restorer, assassin and super spy Gabriel Allon must confront an adversary, his equal, in this electrifying thriller that stretches from the violent, terrorist bloodied streets of Paris to the sunny island of Santorini, Greece, Israel, and Washington, D.C..

After a detonated deadly car bomb ravages the French capital city and calls attention to a new terrorist network and its leader, a man known only as Saladin, Gabriel is charged with uncovering the shadowy figure before he can do more damage.

Utilizing an Israeli agent to pose as a radicalized Palestinian widow of a slain jihadist, Gabriel intends to infiltrate and destroy the extremist organization before it can mastermind another atrocity.

The Black Widow and her handler will embark on a hair raising odyssey that will be played for very high stakes. If they fail, Saladin's next terror spectacular will rival the impact of 9-11 and have the American public reeling in fear.

International intrigue has been Daniel Silva's forte and this latest novel illustrates that he is at the height of his game. Although The Black Widow tops 500 pages in length, you won't mind in the least because the pages melt away with uncommon speed. This is an unprecedented read that will keep even the most demanding reader glued to the page.
