Quotes & Awards

  • “A cloak-and-dagger tale [that] moves at a brisk clip, with clean, lucid exposition and characters who are thoughtfully drawn.”

    New York Times

  • “The plot is rich, multilayered and compelling with issues as timely as the daily headlines and problems as old as humankind…Silva maintains tension and suspense.”

    Denver Post

  • “Enthralling…A thriller that entertains as well as enlightens.”

    Orlando Sentinel

  • “Silva’s sophisticated treatment, polished prose, an edgy mood, and convincing research give his plot a crisp, almost urgent quality.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Thrilling…A good, cinematic story.”

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch

  • “Silva, who writes with the atmospheric grace and whiplash tension of le Carré, brings something special to the spy thriller: a multifaceted, believable hero whose sideline, spying, is only as intriguing as his regular job, restoring Old Masters…[Allon’s] investigation leads to the English assassin, a rogue terrorist whose casual killings (his send-off gift to his lovers is explosives in their luggage) are breathtakingly orchestrated. Silva makes a stunning contribution to the spy thriller.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “[A] spine-tingling plot…Fueled by intense, fast, and unrelenting action, Silva’s latest follows spies, sellers, lovers, and historians to a chilling climax.”

    Library Journal

  • A 2006 CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Finalist
  • A New York Times Bestseller
