From Daniel Silva, the #1 New York Times–bestselling author, comes a modern masterpiece of espionage, love, and betrayal

She was his best-kept secret …

In an isolated village in the mountains of Andalusia, a mysterious Frenchwoman begins work on a dangerous memoir. It is the story of a man she once loved in the Beirut of old, and a child taken from her in treason’s name. The woman is the keeper of the Kremlin’s most closely guarded secret. Long ago, the KGB inserted a mole into the heart of the West—a mole who stands on the doorstep of ultimate power.

Only one man can unravel the conspiracy: Gabriel Allon, the legendary art restorer and assassin who serves as the chief of Israel’s vaunted secret intelligence service. Gabriel has battled the dark forces of the new Russia before, at great personal cost. Now he and the Russians will engage in a final epic showdown, with the fate of the postwar global order hanging in the balance.

Gabriel is lured into the hunt for the traitor after his most important asset inside Russian intelligence is brutally assassinated while trying to defect in Vienna. His quest for the truth will lead him backward in time, to the twentieth century’s greatest act of treason, and, finally, to a spellbinding climax along the banks of the Potomac River outside Washington that will leave readers breathless.

Fast as a bullet, hauntingly beautiful, and filled with stunning double-crosses and twists of plot, The Other Woman is a tour de force that proves once again that “of all those writing spy novels today, Daniel Silva is quite simply the best” (Kansas City Star).

Greatest5 star

One of the best thrillers I have read this year. Page turner in step with today’s political scene. 55


Fantastic5 star

Daniel Silva always delivers. It’s 1:10 am because I couldn’t put this book down to go to sleep. Another Gabriel Allen winner. This is my favorite author & I have all of his books. 55


The Other Woman5 star

Excellent mystery with accurate description of a major historical event. Fast read with twists that are not confusing. Tim, licensed psychologist 55


The Other Women3 star

I love Daniel Silva’s work, but this one was a bit tedious and sometimes hard to follow. Usually I can finish a Silva in two to three days. The Other Women took three weeks. I did love Madam Bettencourt, however. So charming and yet so sly. Looking forward to next years work. Still and always a fan of Gabriel Allon. 35


Big Bummer!1 star

Looked forward to reading Daniel Silva’s new book but was totally disappointed with the weak plot and slow pace. It was so predictable, even the jabs that Silva took at the U.S. President. Not sure I’ll bother buying his next book. 15


One of my favorites4 star

I think the Allon books had become a bit formulaic. This one is different and more interesting exploring in a fictional way the Kim Philby story. 45

Disappointing3 star

Too much social media, not enough fidelity to flow of Gabriel’s life. 35

The Other Women4 star

Well written, page turner. 45


Good, just too political3 star

Another good book in the series. I can’t give it 5 stars due to Silva’s words about American politics. It’s obvious where he stands on our current situation and he made that clear in his typical mainstream news media remarks. Leave that out and it would have been a 5 star rating. 35


The Other Women3 star

Good book with lots of action and a somewhat surprising ending. Silva books are all well written but the spy plots do not vary over his many books. 35
