THE ENGLISH GIRL by Daniel Silva

Daniel Silva continues the saga and reputation of super spy/art restorer, Gabriel Allon in his new book THE ENGLISH GIRL. Fans of the Allon series will not be disappointed as Silva blends his usual political acumen and knowledge of the underworld of the international spy network with a plot that involves an affair carried out by the Prime Minister of England, a plot by Russia with its Putin like leader using his energy based monopolies to garner control of England’s North Sea oil. Allon and his Israeli team come to the rescue and in the end as usual Israel’s super spy lands on his feet. This is an excellent vacation read and I wonder what new twist will Silva create in any future Allon episode.
