Author Info
Daniel Silva
Daniel Silva is one of the most popular spy novelists writing today, and he is often compared to such masters of the genre as Robert Ludlum and John Le Carre. Born in Michigan, Silva moved with his family to California at an early age. He was in the process of earning a master's degree in international relations when he was offered a temporary job at United Press International (UPI) in 1984. He abandoned school entirely after being offered full-time work. His UPI assignments took him to Cairo and the Persian Gulf, among other places, but despite the excitement of being a globe-trotting journalist, he longed to write a novel. Silva eventually settled in Washington, D.C., and joined CNN as a talk-show producer. With his wife's encouragement, he began working on a manuscript in his spare time. His debut novel, THE UNLIKELY SPY, set against the backdrop of World War II, was published in 1997 to great acclaim. Silva introduced his most popular protagonist, Gabriel Allon, in his fourth novel, THE KILL ARTIST (2000). Allon is a former Israeli secret agent who works as an art restorer, and on occasion, the government calls upon him to undertake a mission. Silva, who was raised a staunch Catholic, converted to Judaism as an adult and feels a deep kinship to the State of Israel. Reportedly, among his most ardent fans are members of Mossad, Israel's intelligence agency. One critic wrote that thanks to the author's contacts in that community, "Silva's [Allon] novels have the virtue of being prescient: Several key developments in the realms of diplomacy and espionage have been presaged, if not outright predicted, in Silva's work."
Praise
"Rest assured, THE FALLEN ANGEL delivers the goods."
From the Publisher
Annotation An Israeli government agent whose cover is as an art restoration expert, Gabriel Allon plans a quiet retreat at the Vatican to work on a Caravaggio. Instead, his repose is interrupted by a request that he discreetly investigate the death of a woman. Found under Michelangelo's dome in the Pope's city, the woman's body provokes some to think suicide, but others to suspect murder. Navigating the mystery, as well as the politics of the Pope's city, proves a challenge for the resourceful Gabriel, making FALLEN ANGEL another exciting thriller from Daniel Silva.
Editors Note When the body of a woman is found beneath Michelangelo's dome, Gabriel Allon is summoned by Monsignor Luigi Donati to secretly investigate this mysterious death that has been ruled a suicide--a case that brings about an unthinkable act of sabotage that will plunge the world into a conflict of apocalyptic proportions. 500,000 first printing.
