The Black Widow

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - BOOKS - by Daniel Silva, Harper Collins.

A charis­matic ISIS leader calling him­self Sal­adin has struck in the heart of Paris. The US is next. And only two peo­ple can stop him. One, of course, is Gabriel Al­lon. He’s an as­sas­sin and spy, and the next leader of the Is­raeli se­cu­rity ser­vice, Mos­sad. The other is a young emer­gency de­part­ment doc­tor, Natalie Mizrahi, pos­ing as a rad­i­calised “black widow”. In this 16th Al­lon novel, Silva ramps up the ur­gency. It’s all too pos­si­ble. In fact, Silva wrote the Paris at­tack por­tion of the book, link­ing it to Bel­gium’s Molen­beek dis­trict, be­fore the Novem­ber 2015 strikes. As for his hero, Al­lon hasn’t lost any of his ap­peal. Now a fa­ther, he’s driven to pro­tect the civilised world from tyranny. If you like Ja­son Bourne and Jack Reacher, get to know Gabriel Al­lon.
