One girl

Seven days

No second chances

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 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 a scandal that could 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....

Review:

“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 Carré-like texture with high energy plotting has produced a string of commercial and critical successes. Chalk up another one.” Booklist

Review:

“This is thriller writing at the highest level, offering up a tight plot, believable characters, and an ending that even the most jaded of readers probably won't see coming.” Denver Post

Review:

“Fast-paced intrigue and provocative characters make this a fine addition to an outstanding series.” People Magazine, 4 stars

Review:

“Someone once said that their favorite books are ones that entertain and inform at the same time. The English Girl is one of those novels….A top-notch, old-fashioned East-meets-West, cloak-and-dagger thriller.” Bookreporter.com

Review:

“[A] roller coaster ride….Silva is an excellent storyteller.” Judith Reveal, New York Journal of Books

Review:

“Top-notch action.” Kirkus Reviews
