Morocco. Some novelists who reprise characters and create a long series for readers can become stale or repetitive. Not so with Daniel Silva and his series featuring Israeli spy Gabriel Allon. In the seventeenth novel titled, House of Spies, Silva rips stories from current headlines, even anticipating some, and offers fans a fresh and exciting book. Fans will find a large and familiar cast of characters, and new readers will find an entertaining book packed with tense action. Much of the action takes place in a new setting for Silva: Morocco, and he describes the settings there with vivid prose. Instead of petering out in this series, Silva and Allon may be just finding their stride.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
