The Black Widow (Gabriel Allon, #16)The Black Widow by Daniel Silva
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a great author. Its like he wrote the book last night. The plot is wonderfully presented but best of all when Silva writes I feel as if I'm there. His descriptions of places and events are so real that you can smell the exhaust from the cars and feel the grit on your hands. I take too long to read his books because each word is to be savored. He outlines the background so beautifully and with a great deal of sensitivity. These are complex locations and issues and he navigates them with grace.
I'm glad he kept Gabriel in his books and look forward to his next adventure.
