Biography of Silva, Daniel

Best selling spy novelist Daniel Silva was born in Michigan in 1960. While pursuing a caster's degree in international relations, he received a temporary job with United Press International to help cover the 1984 Democratic National Convention. Soon after, he left his graduate program to work full-time for United Press International. Silva worked in San Francisco and Washington, D. C. and as a Middle East correspondent in Cairo and the Persian Gulf.

He was working at CNN when his first novel, The Unlikely Spy, was published. In 1997, he left CNN to become a full-time author. In 2006, Silva's novel The Messenger won the Barry Award for Best Thriller. Many of his books feature the character Gabriel Allon, a former Israeli secret service assassin and art restorer. Silva was appointed to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's council in 2009. His title's The Fallen Angel and The English Girl made The New York Times Best Seller List for 2013.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (1998-05-15)

For his second thriller, Silva turns from World War II (The Unlikely Spy, LJ 12/96) to a modern intelligence milieu with corrupt government officials and wealthy special interests. The title character, October, is a contract master assassin released by the KGB 30 years ago. CIA agent Michael Osbourne, a terrorism expert, saw October kill his girlfriend and badly wants to capture him. Then the investigation of a missile-downed airliner off the coast of Long Island reveals a body with three shots to the faceOctober's signature.

Osbourne's need to attend to his marriage while trying to stop October's completion of a multiple-hit contract and to uncover those financing it lead to a violent denouement. With concise, vivid character sketches, Silva weaves a swiftly paced, internationally tangled plot. Fans of Ludlum and Forsyth will look for this Literary Guild selection.
