Gabriel Allon, the once wayward son of Israeli intelligence turned chief of the Office, is set to return in The Cellist, the 21st novel in Daniel Silva’s #1 New York Times bestselling series, available in stores on July 13th.
Taking place after the events of The Order—which followed Gabriel Allon as he searched for the truth about what happened to Pope Paul VII after his sudden passing, only to inadvertently stumble upon a much bigger conspiracy than even he saw coming—Silva’s latest promises to be another “riveting, action-packed tale of espionage.”
While the plot of The Cellist is said to follow Allon as he investigates the fatal poisoning of a Russian billionaire, taking him across Europe and “into the orbit of a musical virtuoso,” it’s probably safe to say that Silva once again has a few twists and turns in store for his readers. As his fans know all too well at this point, nothing is ever quite what it seems in the world of super spy Gabriel Allon.
Check out the official plot details below.
Master of international intrigue Daniel Silva follows up his acclaimed #1 New York Times bestsellers The Order, The New Girl, and The Other Woman with this riveting, action-packed tale of espionage and suspense featuring art restorer and spy Gabriel Allon.
