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).
Michigan born author, Daniel Silva has had a most interesting career before he made the decision to follow his dream of becoming a novelist. He left his pursuit of a master's degree in International Relations when he was offered a temporary position with United Press International in 1984 to help cover the Democratic National Convention in San Francisco. He joined UPI later that year as a full time correspondent. His job eventually took him to the Middle East, where he met his future wife, Jamie Gangel who was working as an NBC Today Show Iraq - Iran War Correspondent. They were married in late 1987. Silva returned to Washington, DC, where he accepted a position with CNN.
In 1995, Silva began his writing career in earnest with the instant best seller, The Unlikely Spy. All of his books have been on the New York Times best seller list, and have been published worldwide. His most successful series was about Israeli art restorer, spy, and assassin Gabriel Allon.
Currently, Silva lives with his wife, Jamie, and their children Nicholas and Lily. It is said that Silva frequently takes his children on research trips for his books.
