The newest Gabriel Allon thriller by Daniel Silva is another excellent thriller. On the eve Of Allon becoming Chief Of of Israeli Intelligence, he is summoned to France to help catch a terrorist who has exploded a massive bomb in Paris.
Gabriel and his team trace the attack to a beautiful French national of Syrian descent named Safia. Allon enlists a brilliant woman who is a French- Israeli doctor to infiltrate Isis, by becoming what they call a Black Widow.
The operation is thrilling as Nathalie is finally asked to go to Syria to meet the mastermind named Salladin. Silva wrote this book before the bombings in Paris and Brussels , so it is almost eerie reading it as fiction.
