The Black Widow Audio Book Summary:


Acclaimed author Daniel Silva crafts another well paced and thrilling espionage tale in The Black Widow. Gabriel Allon is currently touted as one of the most gripping fictional spy since Ian Flemming introduced the world to James Bond, which is quite a high praise. Allon is an art restorer by day and a spy/assassin at night. On the eve of the day he was supposed to be given the title of the head of the Israeli secret intelligence service he is lured into taking one final mission. The terrorist group ISIS detonated a bomb in Marais district of Paris. The French government pleads with Allon to stop the man responsible for the attack before he strikes again.

Allon as he knows the severity of this mission and what happens if it fails. Will he be able to stop the madman plotting on killing hundreds more or will he be one of the numbers that fall under this worldwide threat?

One reason to listen:
Allon is a character that harkens back to another classic fictional spy but builds himself up as his own man. This is as good spy thriller audiobook can get today.

“That all this brilliant insight is given to us in the form of a story so well-written and engaging is Mr. Silva’s unique talent. I even devour the author’s notes and acknowledgements – even these are interesting.”– D.G.


“Daniel Silva has written a suspenseful, fast-paced, and frightening thriller that is likely to become one of his most widely read works of fiction to date.” – E. Bukowski


“Yet, of all the books in the series, The Black Widow is definitely the best. The characters are formidable. The plot is mounted on a lavish scale and author Daniel Silva’s writing is as sharp as ever, if not better.” – BloggerJerome


“I was rather disappointed the first half of the book as I usually love reading his books. Going into details of previous books is something that does not interest readers of all his books, and neither did the plot until a bit more than the first half.” – Dina Laver


“Did not have the finesse of the last few books in the series….I still enjoyed it and appreciate the considerable research this entailed. Am still and avid fan, just that this was a triple, not out of the park.” – Ann M. Ernst
