The English Girl by Daniel Silva
Seven days … One girl … No second chances … The explosive new Gabriel Allon thriller from No.1 New York Times bestseller Daniel Silva. Seven days. One girl. No second chances. Madeline Hart is a rising star in British government. She’s beautiful, intelligent and driven, but hiding a dark secret. She is the lover of the Prime Minister, Jonathan Lancaster. When she disappears, it’s clear her kidnappers intend to make the PM pay dearly for his sins. Fearful of scandal, Lancaster asks Gabriel Allon – assassin, art restorer and spy – to find Madeline before she is executed. With the clock ticking, Allon is thrust into a deadly game of shadows where the only thing more dangerous than his enemies is the truth.
Gabriel’s mission takes him from the island of Corsica to the criminal underworld of Marseille, and from the stately corridors of power in London to a pulse-pounding climax in Moscow, a city of secrets and violence where there is a long list of men who want Gabriel dead…
