Fiction Tuesday - The English Girl

Daniel Silva delivers another spectacular thriller starring Gabriel Allon: The English Girl. When a beautiful young British woman vanishes on the island of Corsica, a prime minister's career is threatened with destruction. Allon, the wayward son of Israeli intelligence, is thrust into a game of shadows where nothing is what it seems...and where the only thing more dangerous than his enemies might be the truth._
Silva's work has captured the imagination of millions worldwide. His #1 New York Times bestselling series, which chronicles the adventures of art-restorer and master spy Gabriel Allon, has earned the praise of readers and reviewers everywhere. This captivating new page-turner from the undisputed master of spy fiction is sure to thrill new and old fans alike.
This is book 13 for Silva's Gabriel Allon. He's President Bill Clinton's favorite fictional character.

It would be a long shot, but Hamish Linklater at Gabe Allon.

“As usual, Silva takes the reader hostage from page one with his canny mix of spy craft and suspense….Silva’s ongoing ability to combine le CarrĂ©-like texture with high energy plotting has produced a string of commercial and critical successes. Chalk up another one.” (Booklist)

"I have been a fan of Daniel Silva’s Gabriel Allon for years. Every summer, I look forward to the latest installment. I do admit that I was starting to get slightly tired of Allon being beaten to near death.."-Bongo Reader

James Bond and Jason Bourne may have some competition in the spy game.  Deadline reports that Universal has picked up Daniel Silva’s Gabriel Allon novels for a potential new spy franchise.  Allon is a semi-retired Mossad agent that killed six of the Munich terrorists and makes his living restoring art and taking the occasional Israeli spy assignment, because if there’s a job worth outsourcing, it’s intelligence gathering.  Former NBC-Universal CEO Jeff Zucker will serve as the film’s producer.  The studio is currently looking for a screenwriter but they’re still deciding which of the ten Allon novels will be adapted first (the first one published was 2002′s The Kill Artist).-collider 

The English Girl comes out on July 16th.
