When last we encountered Gabriel Allon, the master art restorer and sometime officer of Israeli intelligence, he had just prevailed in his blood-soaked duel with Saudi terrorist financier Zizi al-Bakari. Now Gabriel is summoned once more by his masters to undertake what appears to be a routine assignment: travel to Amsterdam to purge the archives of a murdered Dutch terrorism analyst who also happened to be an asset of Israeli intelligence. But once in Amsterdam, Gabriel soon discovers a conspiracy of terror festering in the city’s Islamic underground, a plot that is about to explode on the other side of the English Channel, in the middle of London.

The target of this plot is Elizabeth Halton, the daughter of the American ambassador to the Court of St. James’s, who is to be brutally kidnapped. Gabriel arrives seconds too late to save her. And by revealing his face to the plot’s masterminds, his fate is sealed as well. Drawn once more into the service of American intelligence, Gabriel hurls himself into a desperate search for the missing woman as the clock ticks steadily toward the hour of her execution. It will take him from Amsterdam to Germany to the very end of Denmark. It will thrust him into an unlikely alliance with a man who has lost everything because of his devotion to Islam. It will cause him to question the morality of the tactics of his trade. And it might very well cost him his life.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tony | 2/4/2014

    " Give it a 4.5. Very good book. has manay similar themes to other books with kidnapping etc but it flows well. A lot of middle east politics etc but is part of the appeal "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel | 2/3/2014

    " I never heard of daniel Silva prior to this book. In the line of Ludlum, LeCarre and others, he manipulate politics and terrorism and serve stories filled with suspense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharron | 2/1/2014

    " Good thriller, but Gabriel Allon is implausibly resilient! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ben | 1/17/2014

    " Great intrigue and suspense as always from Silva. Makes me want to re-read his older books until a new one comes out (hopefully) this next summer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brandy | 1/17/2014

    " Was a bit slow at parts, but overall, was an interesting read. I will probably try another novel by this author to see how I like some of his other work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna Reed | 1/14/2014

    " Every Daniel Silva book is excellent, and The Secret Servant is no exception. This is the latest in the Gabriel Allon series. Fast paced, full of heavily researched Middle-East and American political history, it paints a vivid and scary picture of modern day Islam, and the global impact of fundamentalism. These books aren't for the faint of heart, but in my opinion, extremly informative and worthy reads. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristi | 12/15/2013

    " I like books that are thought-provoking, intelligently written, intriguing and/or insightful. This book is none of the above. However, it's a page-turner that makes two hours of a plane ride go by really quickly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephen | 12/12/2013

    " Good book, interesting take on Islam in the heart of europe "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Doug | 11/18/2013

    " Another great adventure by Daniel Silva. "

    " I always enjoy Silva's books about Gabriel Allon-he is an Israeli secret agent and an art restorer. This one offers much insight into the minds of Islamic radicals. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debi | 5/16/2013

    " Great spy thriller with lots of action. Not always believable but the mix of politics, terrorism and adventure make for a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maree | 3/26/2013

    " It is an O.K. mystery book. There are a lot of names to remember, not to mention hard to pronounce. And a lot of places to remember. It involves middle eastern politics and stuff. Once I trudged through all the who is who and what is what, then it got exciting (the last 150 pages or so). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jglhome | 3/14/2013

    " I'm throwing Jack Reacher over for Gabriel Allon. sigh. "

    " Silva is one of my favorite. I think he's going to end up with a fatwa on his head though. He might just be the next Rushdie. Reads fast, and is written well for this genre. I'm a huge fan. "

    " The finale of this book was the coolest thing in the entire series up to this point. Put an enormous smile on my face. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 6/6/2011

    " Each time I read one of Silva's books, I wonder if this will be the one that slows down or where the writing finally turns bad, or the characters become cliche and unbelievable. It hasn't happened yet, and by this point I should start thinking it never will.
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jonathan | 6/1/2011

    " While #7 in the series its the first of these that I've read. Easy to get into and expertly paced, but I do have some issues with some of the politics in there. A very good author, but too many distracting issues for me. "
