About the author

Biography of Silva, Daniel

Bestselling 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 (2003-10-01)

After The Confessor, his biggest hit yet, Silva brings back Gabriel Allon to hunt down a man in a photo he recognizes as the villain who tortured his mother during the Death March from Auschwitz.

Review by Library Journal (2004-01-01)

This is Silva's seventh novel and the concluding volume in a trilogy featuring Gabriel Allon, an aging, lonely, and reluctant Israeli assassin and art restorer. In his latest case, an Israeli war claims office in Vienna has been bombed, innocent people are dead, and a connection is suspected between neo-Nazis and an upcoming Austrian election. While investigating the bombing, Allon finds an intensely personal link between a man who may or may not be a long-hidden Nazi war criminal and his own devastated family (Allon's mother survived the Holocaust). Along with discovering the truth behind the bombing, Allon has to confront cover-ups by the CIA and the Vatican and attempts on his own life, then deal with both an unrepentant Austrian government and stonewalling Swiss banks. As usual, Silva has crafted an exciting and complex novel. Recommended for all fiction collections.

Review by Library Journal (2004-11-15)

In the conclusion to his Gabriel Allon trilogy, Silva puts his art restorer and assassin on the trail of a Nazi war criminal. Following the bombing of an Israeli war claims office in Vienna, Gabriel discovers that an elderly Austrian businessman, Erich Radek, was responsible for destroying evidence of the Holocaust. The case against him includes an account offered by Gabriel's mother, who witnessed a particularly heinous crime. The pursuit takes Gabriel through Europe, then to Israel, Argentina, and the United States.

Matters are complicated by Erich's connection to the CIA and by the revelation that the likely next Austrian prime minister is his son. Silva balances history, action, and moral issues expertly. While British reader John Lee handles an assortment of accents quite well, he needs to refine his American voices. Recommended for popular collections.
