Gabriel Allon, the art restor­er, spy, and assas­sin, is poised to become the chief of Israel’s secret intel­li­gence ser­vice. But on the eve of his pro­mo­tion, events con­spire to lure him into the field for one final oper­a­tion. ISIS has det­o­nat­ed a mas­sive bomb in the Marais dis­trict of Paris, and a des­per­ate French gov­ern­ment wants Gabriel to elim­i­nate the man respon­si­ble before he can strike again. From its shock­ing open­ing to its explo­sive denoue­ment in Wash­ing­ton, D.C., The Black Wid­ow reveals itself as Silva’s most time­ly and pow­er­ful nov­el yet.
