The English Girl: A Novel | Daniel Silva
19 posts | 23 read | 1 reading | 8 to read
Seven days ...One girl ...No second chances ...No more lies. The explosive new Gabriel Allon thriller from No.1 New York Times bestseller Daniel Silva. Madeline Hart is a rising star in British government: beautiful, intelligent, driven to succeed by an impoverished childhood. But she also has a dark secret. She is the lover of the Prime Minister, Jonathan Lancaster. When she disappears on the island of Corsica, it's clear her kidnappers know about the affair and intend to make the PM pay dearly for his sins. Fearful of scandal that will destroy his career, Lancaster decides to handle the matter privately, and not involve the police. Enter Gabriel Allon - assassin, art restorer and spy - who must find Madeline within seven days before she is executed. With the clock ticking, Allon is thrust into a deadly game of shadows in which nothing is what it seems-and where the only thing more dangerous than his enemies is the truth. Gabriel's mission takes him from the criminal underworld of Marseilles, to the stately corridors of power in London - and, finally, to a pulse-pounding climax in Moscow, a city of secrets and violence where there is a long list of men who want Gabriel dead ...'This is Silva at his best: the suspense is palpable, the mystery is genuine and well concealed ...gripping' HERALD SUN 'Silva takes the reader hostage from page one with his canny mix of spy craft and suspense' BOOKLIST Praise for Daniel Silva: 'A world-class practitioner of spy fiction' WASHINGTON POST 'A cross between Jason Bourne and James Bond ...A fabulous thriller' DAILY MAIL 'Gabriel Allon is my favorite fictional character' President Bill Clinton 'Forget James Bond - Gabriel Allon is the killer you'd want on your side' AUSTRALIAN WOMEN'S WEEKLY

I LOVED this, but then I've loved every one in the series. I'm a little behind bc I was hoarding them to jump start reading slump. Now I want to race thru the rest of the series. One of the most enjoyable books I've read this year. #SpyThriller #Series #GreatHero #huge cast of recurring charecters.

I tried to save my Gabriel Allon books so that I only read one a month, because they are so good and because I don‘t want them to be over and have no spy thrillers to read. This book had me guessing the whole time (I had my suspicions about certain characters) and then the ending had me reading furiously (but not wanting it to end either). Another great book in this series.

TrishB I‘m reading one a month too! 2y
ReadingMeagan @TrishB I might have to break my rule and read another one this month. They are getting SO good! Good luck to you! And enjoy 😊 2y
TrishB All great so far 👍🏻 2y

I really like this one. I think I'll have to read his other books. I have a thing for spy thrillers.

EmG So worth your effort. They are great. 2y

In February I read 2 nonfiction books about chemistry for my work, The English Girl and started Marley and Me. I started listening to audiobook Black Lies. The best book was #TheEnglishGirl. I read #croatianedition for #LMPBC It was a great and suspense spy thriller and I enjoyed the adventure with Gabriel.

The doors on this picture were pretty rattled in this book. This was an amazing and captivating page turner! Full of suspense and plot twists. Liked every page of it. The whole Gabriel Allon series is on my TBR list for a very long time, and after reading this I hope I'll manage to read it very soon. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

3.5 ⭐️ There were some great moments, and of course I love the recurring characters, but this entry in the series was surprisingly predictable, which made me sad. Still a pick because the writing is great and again, the characters are wonderful, but I hate being able to put the pieces together so clearly, so quickly. Counting for challenges: Mount TBR #13, LRC#2 (girl in title), & Litsy A-Z Letter E. #slaythatseriesreadathon

Getting a head start on the #slaythatseriesreadathon, since I know I won't be able to start/finish anything else today. This is #13 in the series and #17 comes out next Tuesday. I own them all, I'm just a little behind. Time to close the gap (and knock a couple books off Mount TBR!).

TrishB I have recently brought number 1 on @Cinfhen recommendation! Need to get to it -especially if now at 17!! 3y
DGRachel @TrishB They're so good! You won't regret it. 3y
TrishB Good to know I've got another series ready and waiting 👍 3y

DGRachel @Cinfhen @TrishB Amazon has House of Spies listed at 7/11 in the US according to my pre-order. Not that I'll be ready for it, but I'll be disappointed if they are lying! 3y
