Featured Author of the Month

Daniel Silva
In 1994 he began work on his first novel, The Unlikely Spy (1996). When published, the novel became a New York Times best-seller. Since then Silva has written 16 spy novels, all best-sellers on the New York Times list. The main focus is Gabriel Allon, an Israeli art restorer, spy and assasin, who is a key figure in all but three of Silva’s titles. The series has been a New York Times best seller since its first installment in 2001. Three of the series’ recent titles, (Moscow Rules (2008), The Defector (2000), and Portrait of a Spy (2011)) topped the New York Times’ list. The Fallen Angel was published in July 2012. His newest novel, The English Girl was published in July 2013. Some of his novels are set against Islamic terrorism, some relate to villains set in Russia, and some are about historic events related to World War II and the Holocaust. Silva did not come into the Allon series with a significant understanding of the world of art restoration but was able to use a neighbor’s expertise to help him turn a spy-assassin into an artist. His latest novel is The Heist, published in 2014 and now on the New York Times best-seller list.
