From #1 New York Times bestselling author Daniel Silva, this summer’s hottest thriller.
Now you see her. Now you don’t. THE NEW GIRL. A new thriller of deception, betrayal, and vengeance.
She was covered from head to toe in expensive wool and plaid, the sort of stuff one saw at the Burberry boutique in Harrods. She carried a leather bookbag rather than a nylon backpack. Her patent leather ballet slippers were glossy and bright. She was proper, the new girl, modest. But there was something else about her …
At an exclusive private school in Switzerland, mystery surrounds the identity of the beautiful raven-haired girl who arrives each morning in a motorcade fit for a head of state. She is said to be the daughter of a wealthy international businessman. In truth, her father is Khalid bin Mohammed, the much-maligned crown prince of Saudi Arabia. Once celebrated for his daring social and religious reforms, he is now reviled for his role in the murder of a dissident journalist. And when his only child is brutally kidnapped, he turns to the one man he can trust to find her before it is too late.
What’s done cannot be undone …
Gabriel Allon, the legendary chief of Israeli intelligence, has spent most of his life fighting terrorists, including the murderous jihadists financed by Saudi Arabia. Prince Khalid—or KBM, as he is known—has pledged to finally break the bond between the Kingdom and radical Islam. For that reason alone, Gabriel regards him as a valuable if flawed partner. Together they will become unlikely allies in a deadly secret war for control of the Middle East. The life of a child, and the throne of Saudi Arabia, hang in the balance. Both men have made their share of enemies. And both have everything to lose.
Filled with dark humor, breathtaking twists of plot, and an unforgettable cast of characters, The New Girl is both a thrilling, page-turning tale of entertainment and a sophisticated study of political alliances and great-power rivalries in a dangerous world. And it is once again proof that Gabriel Allon is “one of fiction’s greatest spies” (Kirkus) and Daniel Silva is “quite simply the best” (Kansas City Star) writer of foreign intrigue and suspense at work today.
New Girl is an American sitcom starring Zooey Deschanel. New Girl or The New Girl may also refer to:..
New Girl has the bones of an Allon story and for the most part motors along at a nice pace. But the novel is never more than workman like and the ending is a bit of a wobbly tack on. 35
I was disappointed. I wasn't necessarily looking for a happy ending but was there anything positive about how it ended? The crown prince died, his daughter died..... 35
Keeps you on your toes 55
I loved this book just as I have loved every book I have read by Daniel Silva. This book was thrilling, exciting, a page-turner and kept me enthralled until the end. It was a book i could not put down until I finished it. 55
No matter what book you pick up by Silva, you learn something. His stories are captivating, his history and world civics lessons spot on, and his writing continues, even now after so many novels, to grow stronger. A wonderful series, this is one of my more favorite books. 55
I’ve read 7 of Daniel Silva’s books about Gabriel Allon. This is my favorite. Don’t understand the complaint from a reader about plagiarism (they must not know the definition of the word) and the other reader who stopped reading after 200 pages, as every chapter was well written and advanced the storyline. I will put it this way, it was such a good read, it makes me want to go back and buy some of the earlier books. 55
This book took you into the world it portrays. Kept you on the edge of your seat every minutes. I simply could not put it down. I did not want it to end. The author is one I have often read and he did not fail in keeping me well entertained again! Great read! Sincerely recommend this venture into intrigue! Enjoy! 55
Awful. Shame on you Daniel. 15
Kept reading in a sunk costs mindset and after 200 pages couldn’t anymore. 15
May be the best so for in the Allon series. And surprisingly emotionally moving at times. Silva is a master. 55
