    Europe is receding quietly into history Daniel Silva opens The Secret Servant with a first chapter that blisters a Europe that has mistaken capitulation to Islamic extremism as tolerance It does not stop from there.This is the 7th book in Silva s Gabriel Allon series and the first one to take on the use of rendition and the role Egypt has played in the geopolitics of the Middle East The text takes a hard look at the issues in that region of the world As always in Siva s books both sides a Europe is receding quietly into history Daniel Silva opens The Secret Servant with a first chapter that blisters a Europe that has mistaken capitulation to Islamic extremism as tolerance It does not stop from there.This is the 7th book in Silva s Gabriel Allon series and the first one to take on the use of rendition and the role Egypt has played in the geopolitics of the Middle East The text takes a hard look at the issues in that region of the world As always in Siva s books both sides are allowed to air their grievance, but when a Jewish characters says to an devout Muslim We re the scapegoat for Arab failings , and the Muslim character agrees you have to stop for a moment and consider the issues presented in the previous pages.This book was published in 2007 and yet it predicts with accuracy the so called Arab Spring that swept Egypt in 2011 The events Silva predicts actually happened, and just as he did in his novel The Black Widow the first Allon novel I read, which inspired me to go back and read the series in order Mr Silva proves a prophet who has a keen insight into the pulse of the issues that he tackles in these books.Now don t get me wrong, this is not a wonky policy series, these are espionage thrillers, and I read thru them at a rapid clip You will keep turning the pages because Silva is a good writer and a good storyteller A little dispiriting is the section after the climax where Silva depicts in a sadly realistic manner the way in which media attacks the good guys in the name of tolerance and thinly veiled anti Semitism If I did not see it actually happen in the real world I would dismiss it as fiction But alas, I cannot.It feels nice to read a book where evil really does lose, and there is not incessant navel gazing by all of the characters The methods used to fight the War on Terrorism are ugly Silva does not deny it Nor does he sit on the moral mountain and pass judgement on those who fight the war for us He just presents it, you take it from there 8 is already on my to read pile

    Perfect page turner and a gratifying installment in a solid series for some over the pond travel And, rather than getting bored with the series, I find it s growing on me or, of course, the author is becomingcomfortable with his material or both This one may not have been as informative as some of the others, and it lacks the heft of the holocaust themed trilogy that anchors the first half dozen books in the series, but or conversely I thought possibly because it was a tad li Perfect page turner and a gratifying installment in a solid series for some over the pond travel And, rather than getting bored with the series, I find it s growing on me or, of course, the author is becomingcomfortable with his material or both This one may not have been as informative as some of the others, and it lacks the heft of the holocaust themed trilogy that anchors the first half dozen books in the series, but or conversely I thought possibly because it was a tad lighter or less encumbered than some of the others it rollicked along a nice clip.Like other books in the series, the book contains enough history and historical fiction so that readers can pat themselves on the back for learning something about historical events and political social global issues and relations OK, let s not get carried away the author provides just enough history context to make readers feel less guilty for getting sucked into a shoot em up mischief and mayhem scramble For folks who like their action chase drama reading sprinkled with travel, the series tends to cover a lot of ground, but this one bounces aroundthan most, containing enough frenetic border hopping to satisfying those with serious armchair wanderlust The same disclaimers apply here consistent with the earlier books these books aren t high literature, and they weren t written for pacifists, the squeamish OK, the violence can get a tad graphic at times , and I wouldn t recommend them to anti Semites particularly Western European anti Semites or folks firmly opposed or fundamentally unsympathetic to the State of Israel or Israel s plight, right to exist, right to defend itself, etc But that should be obvious, right Of course, I m NOT recommending that anyone start here I ve enjoyed the series so far in order, and there are a number of highly significant aspects of the story line that build upon prior books Sure, in any series, the number of characters ebbs and flows, and you can get by without the cumulative background or pre requisites, but my sense is that I wouldn t have appreciated a number of the sub plots in this one if I hadn t previously consumer the prior books.One minor quibble Silva likes to add little stingers or post climax vignettes not quite epilogues, butalong the lines of supplemental endings almost like, oh, and by the way, let me trim this dangling thread too before I go I can t help but analogize to the teasers after the credits in the big screen Marvel movies here, it seemed like the book ended three times, in rapidly accelerating order Granted, each of the endings made sense, and felt right, and were consistent with the book characters series but sometimes like in this case the shorter endings are so abrupt jarring that they redisconcerting than gratifying But hey, it s not the first time, so.I expect I ll get to the next installment sooner rather than later

    Another great espionage novel by the legendary Daniel Silva, revolving the evenlegendary character he d created, Mossad agent Gabriel Allon I just LOVE this guy I also appreciate Silva s standpoint in viewing and explaining to the readers the course of happenings in the middle east, and especially Israel Can t wait to readbooks in this series, which became one of my favorite reads.

    Daniel Silva writes this series about Gabriel Allon, a master art restorer and part time Israeli intelligence agent In this book Elizabeth Halton, the daughter of the American ambassador to England, is kidnapped The story jumps around from Amsterdam to Germany to Denmark as he attempts to find and rescue Halton.The book is well written and researched I enjoyed the fact that Silva provides information about Islam, the Middle Eastern Politics and about being Jewish The author attempts to pres Daniel Silva writes this series about Gabriel Allon, a master art restorer and part time Israeli intelligence agent In this book Elizabeth Halton, the daughter of the American ambassador to England, is kidnapped The story jumps around from Amsterdam to Germany to Denmark as he attempts to find and rescue Halton.The book is well written and researched I enjoyed the fact that Silva provides information about Islam, the Middle Eastern Politics and about being Jewish The author attempts to present both sides of the issue involved without condoning terrorism The book is extremely readable and an exciting spy novel.I read this as a paperback published by Signet in 2008 It is 500 pages

    This new episode of the thrilling and terrifying life of Gabriel Allon completely pleased me there was not only the excellent writing and the thrilling rhythm, but also true, solid feeling, good values such as loyalty and generosity, and the scope of the action was evenwide spread than in previous books Gabriel lives in the permanent contradiction of being, at the same time, a killer and a saviour of sorts, always ready to give his own life, but to escape narrowly after a lot of persecut This new episode of the thrilling and terrifying life of Gabriel Allon completely pleased me there was not only the excellent writing and the thrilling rhythm, but also true, solid feeling, good values such as loyalty and generosity, and the scope of the action was evenwide spread than in previous books Gabriel lives in the permanent contradiction of being, at the same time, a killer and a saviour of sorts, always ready to give his own life, but to escape narrowly after a lot of persecution Excellent book Maria Carmo,Lisbon 26 September 2016

    I don t know what number this is in the Gabriel Allon series I think the 9th , but like all the other books Daniel Silva writes it contains a great deal of information about Middle Eastern politics and the U.S England s relationships with countries like Israel and Saudi Arabia Though Jewish himself, Silva writes with the knowledge that certain political alignments will never garner the outcome desired in the region PEACE.For any of you looking to learn , and to read fantastic spy novel I don t know what number this is in the Gabriel Allon series I think the 9th , but like all the other books Daniel Silva writes it contains a great deal of information about Middle Eastern politics and the U.S England s relationships with countries like Israel and Saudi Arabia Though Jewish himself, Silva writes with the knowledge that certain political alignments will never garner the outcome desired in the region PEACE.For any of you looking to learn , and to read fantastic spy novels written by a former international correspondent, I highly recommend starting with book 1 and reading them all the way through Take note reading espionage fulfills my La Femme Christiana dreams Good Lord, I would be the most talkative spy assassin ever would I NOT

    Second read for this one Every bit as good the second time through as it was the first.

  9. Abbas Fardil Abbas Fardil says:

    The story is okay But the problem is writer s toiling for establishing his personal political or racial view as an universal truth in a fictional work.This is very ridiculous Yah, he can make publicity or use his own terms to express his views, but he can t mislead his readers through giving his false political or racial theory like a universal truth.

    I pulled The Secret Servant out of the bargain bin of my local bookshop some months ago because it ticked all the boxes Israeli spy story set in Amsterdam and London It was downhill from there Daniel Silva s weakness is a tendency to be didactic That need to over explain becomes problematic when it results in such gems as the Zuiderkirk church , which even spelled correctly translates as South church church , or mackintosh raincoat , which is a raincoat raincoat The history and politics I pulled The Secret Servant out of the bargain bin of my local bookshop some months ago because it ticked all the boxes Israeli spy story set in Amsterdam and London It was downhill from there Daniel Silva s weakness is a tendency to be didactic That need to over explain becomes problematic when it results in such gems as the Zuiderkirk church , which even spelled correctly translates as South church church , or mackintosh raincoat , which is a raincoat raincoat The history and politics are bizarre, and master field operative, Gabriel Allon, makes errors a security guard would avoid After fifty pages I stopped noting the errors There were too many
