Saladin. The latest novel by Daniel Silva to feature art restorer and soon-to-be Mossad chief, Gabriel Allon, is titled, The Black Widow. Fans of the series will be delighted by the continued development of this complex protagonist, and will be thrilled that he is still in the field, not behind a desk. ISIS is the enemy Allon pursues in the form of an adversary called Saladin. Allon convinces a Jewish doctor, Leila Hadawi, to infiltrate ISIS, and he and others train her to pull off this feat. Much of the action in this novel takes place in the United States, which adds to the terror and tension that remain taut throughout this novel.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
