Read House of Spies (Gabriel Allon #17) Online Free - A heart-stopping tale of suspense, Daniel Silva’s runaway bestseller, The Black Widow, was one of 2016’s biggest novels. Now, in House of Spies, Gabriel Allon is back and out for revenge – determined to hunt down the world’s most dangerous terrorist, a shadowy ISIS mastermind known only as Saladin.
Four months after the deadliest attack on the American homeland since 9/11, terrorists leave a trail of carnage through London’s glittering West End. The attack is a brilliant feat of planning and secrecy, but with one loose thread.
The thread leads Gabriel Allon and his team of operatives to the south of France and to the gilded doorstep of Jean-Luc Martel and Olivia Watson. A beautiful former British fashion model, Olivia pretends not to know that the true source of Martel’s enormous wealth is drugs. And Martel, likewise, turns a blind eye to the fact he is doing business with a man whose objective is the very destruction of the West. Together, under Gabriel’s skilled hand, they will become an unlikely pair of heroes in the global war on terrorism.
Written in seductive and elegant prose, the story moves swiftly from the glamour of Saint-Tropez to the grit of Casablanca and, finally, to an electrifying climax that will leave readers breathless long after they turn the final page.

Can it really be true that this the 17th book featuring Israeli secret agent Gabriel Allon? Pretty much from the beginning he has held the No. 1 spot on my list of favorite mystery/thriller "heroes." Every spring I start salivating in anticipation of a new installment, so of course I was delighte...

I am going to state what many others have noted in their reviews and that is this is the 17th book in the Gabriel Allon series. I open with that because I want to mention that often in a series when you reach this point the series starts to drag and gets old. Not this series. Not this latest book...

The 17th book in the spy, assassin, and art restorer Gabriel Allon series by author Daniel Silva and although I had only previously read 1 to 5 it did not spoil my enjoyment or understanding of this book.

Maybe 3 stars because it's a reliable addition to the series. But as always with successful genre fiction, the Allon books have ossified into a series of set pieces. Same cast of characters, stories retold. They're curiously bloodless despite the body count; Allon is in a bombing in Paris, suffer...

His least ambitious work
I have loved Daniel Silva's work for years, and was eagerly looking forward to reading "The House of Spies" as a birthday present. Once it arrived, I found myself having difficulty finishing it. I did continue and completed the book out of loyalty, and not curiosity or int...

I wanted to give this 4 stars since it features two of my favorite spies. However, while the ending is alright, it's less than totally desirable. 6 of 10 stars

A horribly prescient act of terrorism in London gives this thriller currency as Gabriel Allon, now head of the Office, makes things personal as he sets up an elaborate operation to take down a terrorist leader.
If you've read other Silva books then you'll know what to expect as this doesn't chall...
