Over the course of his brilliant career, Daniel Silva has established himself as a “world-class practitioner of spy fiction” (Washington Post) who has produced “the best thriller series on the market in the past decade” (Midwest Book Review). Gabriel Allon, his enigmatic hero, has been described as the most compelling creation since “Ian Fleming put down his martini and invented James Bond” (The Rocky Mountain News). Silva has written over 10 spy novels all of which have been New York Times best-sellers, including “Moscow Rules,” “The Defector” and “The Rembrandt Affair.” Earlier this year, Universal announced they had acquired the screen rights to the Gabriel Allon series and will soon be bringing Silva’s creation to life on the big screen. NWS is honored to welcome Silva at the launch of his national book tour. He took the stage with Doug Stanton to discuss his enormously popular novels, including the latest installment in the Gabriel Allon series, A Portrait of a Spy. His new book has been called Silva’s “most extraordinary novel to date.” The evening concluded with a reception and book signing with the author.
