#1 New York Times Bestseller * #1 USA Today Bestseller * #1 Wall Street Journal Bestseller Now you see her.  Now you don't.  THE NEW GIRL.  A thriller of deception, betrayal, and vengeance. She was covered from head to toe in expensive wool and plaid, the sort of stuff one saw at the Burberry boutique in Harrods. She carried a leather bookbag rather than a nylon backpack. Her patent leather ballet slippers were glossy and bright. She was proper, the new girl, modest. But there was something else about her ... At an exclusive private school in Switzerland, mystery surrounds the identity of the beautiful raven-haired girl who arrives each morning in a motorcade fit for a head of state. She is said to be the daughter of a wealthy international businessman. In truth, her father is Khalid bin Mohammed, the much-maligned crown prince of Saudi Arabia. Once celebrated for his daring social and religious reforms, he is now reviled for his role in the murder of a dissident journalist. And when his only child is brutally kidnapped, he turns to the one man he can trust to find her before it is too late. What's done cannot be undone ... Gabriel Allon, the legendary chief of Israeli intelligence, has spent most of his life fighting terrorists, including the murderous jihadists financed by Saudi Arabia. Prince Khalid--or KBM, as he is known--has pledged to finally break the bond between the Kingdom and radical Islam. For that reason alone, Gabriel regards him as a valuable if flawed partner. Together they will become unlikely allies in a deadly secret war for control of the Middle East. The life of a child, and the throne of Saudi Arabia, hang in the balance. Both men have made their share of enemies. And both have everything to lose. Filled with dark humor, breathtaking twists of plot, and an unforgettable cast of characters, The New Girl is both a thrilling, page-turning tale of entertainment and a sophisticated study of political alliances and great-power rivalries in a dangerous world. And it is once again proof that Gabriel Allon is "one of fiction's greatest spies" (Kirkus) and Daniel Silva is "quite simply the best" (Kansas City Star) writer of foreign intrigue and suspense at work today.… (mer)

I believe I may have read another of his books but am not sure. Really enjoyed this novel and liked how he used recent events as a backdrop for his plot with a few twists thrown in. ( )

Silva's Gabriel Allon series remains one of the best as is Silva's understanding of Middle Eastern. Allon forms a team of agents with whom he has previously worked and also has to work with intelligence agencies of other countries. Rapid-fire pacing, shifting locations, international intrigue, clearly defined characters, and crisp dialogue. Overall, a pretty good book. ( )

When the daughter of the crowned prince of Saudi Arabia is abducted, who does he turn to? Gabriel Allon the legendary Israeli spy, Chief of the Israeli intelligence.

This is the 20th book by Daniel Silva I have read and the 19th in the Gabriel Allon series and not a single has been bad. Daniel Silva is just so consistent.

The reasons why Daniel Silva is my favorite spy/espionage/thriller writer are all on show here.
His books are enlightening, well researched and hard to put down.
All the characters I've come to love are also back, Sarah Bancroft, Christopher Teller, Eli Lavon, Mikhail.

The New Girl, Daniel Silva, author; George Guidall, narrator
Gabriel Allon and Sarah Bancroft find themselves working together again in an espionage investigation. Sarah still carries a torch for Allon, but he loves and is married to Chiara. Sarah, on the rebound, had an affair with Mikhail Abramov, but he too, married someone else. Now they are also thrown together again in this tense spy mystery.
Sarah, once a CIA agent, now in charge of a New York City museum’s art collection, is incongruously asked by the spoiled Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Khalid bin Mohammed, to help him get in touch with Gabriel Allon. She doesn’t want to, but eventually, learning about his reasons, she assents. Gabriel also agrees to help the future Saudi King. The novel is loosely connected to the murder of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.
Twelve year old Jihan, as she is called in her Swiss private school, is Khalid’s daughter and the love of his life. She has been kidnapped. The Crown Prince believes that the Israeli head of intelligence is his best hope for getting her back safely and Allon agrees to help. He abdicates the throne as a condition to free her. After the rescue effort goes awry, the Crown Prince, now an ordinary citizen, discovers that a trusted uncle, Abdullah, had deliberately and cold bloodedly engineered the tragic consequences in order to steal the throne from him.
When Allon is once again engaged to help the Crown Prince extract revenge against the uncle who engineered the tragedy, he agrees. His Uncle Abdullah conspired with the Russians to ascend to the throne. They wanted a puppet on the throne to give them power in the Middle East, and in Abdullah, they had one. Abdullah is now in their debt. He must also satisfy the radical fringe in his country and is returning the country to the Wahabi traditions, turning back the reforms Khalid had instituted, especially for women. Khalid wants vengeance. Allon wants justice. All are hoping that the actions now being planned will lead to better Middle East relations between Saudi Arabia and Israel, and in the process, reduce Russian influence in the region.
The novel bounces from country to country as the mystery unravels and the crimes are solved. Silva writes a book that keeps you completely engaged. It has moments of jocular sarcasm and subtle humorous bantering between friends and enemies; it is fast moving, action packed and interesting. The intrigue and animus between some of the countries is factual. Although names are changed, it is possible to assume the identity of some that resemble real life heads of state and spymasters. Silva intermingles the facts with the fiction. ( )
