THE BLACK WIDOW — Daniel Silva  

Every so often a novel comes along that makes you sit up and pay real attention and The Black Widow is one such novel. Dealing with the very topical subject of terrorism and an attack in the Marais district of Paris, Gabriel Allon, art restorer/secret agent, is ready to take up his new post as chief of Israel’s secret intelligence service when he is seconded to help the French government catch the perpetrator before he can strike again. In secret he places a young female agent deep in the heart of a cell… a black widow out for blood. Page-turning in the extreme.
