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
"The plot Silva makes out of all of these elements is terrifically engaging, and the characters themselves seem real beyond anything you read in the newspapers or see on the cable shows."
"Silva writes spy novels for people who are willing to think about uncomfortable political questions and the ongoing history of human brutality."
From the Publisher
Annotation The murder of an art dealer and the theft of a Rembrandt portrait draw a reluctant Gabriel Allon into a web of intrigue that will take him across the globe in Daniel Silva's THE REMBRANDT AFFAIR. As a favor to a friend, Gabriel comes out of his much longed-for seclusion (with his wife, Chiara, of course) to investigate these crimes. But what appears to be a straight-forward heist turns out to be much more complicated, involving a slew of intriguing individuals. Fans of Silva will love the adventures, sights, and sounds of this exciting page-turner.
