Allon is back - and on better form than ever!

Gabriel Allon, Art restorer cum Israeli spy, is back in Silva's latest thriller. Following from the traumatic events in The Secret Servant, Allon is back in Italy restoring a priceless painting for the Vatican and on honeymoon with his new wife, Chiara. Unfortunately, the underworld doesn't stop turning and despite his misgivings, he is coerced into attending a brief meeting with a Russian journalist in Rome. Before Allon can get to him however, the journalist is murdered in broad daylight, and Allon finds himself once again drawn into the secretive world of underhanded deals, murder and intrigue.

Ivan Kharkov is a Russian oligarch. Whilst to the outside world he is the very essence of the new crowd of ultra-rich coming out of the East, his companies hide a dark underbelly that involves selling arms to the poorest countries of the world at inflated prices. Indeed, Kharkov is not an unknown to the Israeli secret services, nor their counterparts the globe over - but it would appear that Ivan is up to something particularly nasty as those journalists who attempt to raise the alarm are either assassinated or put under house arrest. Allon's only in is Ivan's wife, Elena. But will Allon be able to get close to her - and even if he does, will he be able to put a stop to the deal that could pose a threat to the civilised world as we know it?

There is an intensity to Moscow Rules that defies even Silva's predecessors. For the first time, you are genuinely on the edge of your seat as you wonder how and if Allon will actually succeed with his body intact. Whilst there are perhaps fewer shootouts, car chases and discriminate killing, this latest Allon thriller shows Silva has become a master of suspense. Beyond a doubt, this is one of the finest espionage writers of our time... and he just seems to get better and better.
