Revue de presse

“Magnificent….This book has all the elements you love about Silva’s writing—his way with a plot, his incomparable characters, and the range of emotions he piles into his pages.” (Huffington Post)

The Heist by Silva is nothing short of phenomenal. It is his best work to date. And that is a huge statement since each novel has been unique and marvelous.” (Naples Daily News)

“Ingenious.” (Fort Worth Star-Telegram)

“The story is a twisting tale of moves and countermoves, and even if this is your introduction to Gabriel Allon, you’ll find the characters in the book come to life.” (Oklahoma City Oklahoman)

“Silva has weaved together a story with intrigue, insight, and suspense.” (Crimespree Magazine)

“A fun read….In erudition, action and temperament, Silva has made Allon the modern-day covert warrior extraordinaire.” (Kirkus)

“Smart, unpredictable, and packed with bits of history, art, heart, and imagination, this is a page turner to be savored….When it comes to the vast club of practitioners of international spycraft, Silva is a cut above them all, and The English Girl is a masterwork.” (Neal Thompson, Amazon.com on The English Girl)

“Although Gabriel’s adventures are set in the real world of greedy politicians and grabs for control of a diminishing supply of natural resources, ‘Israel’s avenging angel’ has the superhuman abilities that make for a satisfying fantasy.” (Columbus Dispatch on The English Girl)

“Allon is a great political operative, but Silva is an even greater writer. That is what makes THE ENGLISH GIRL a must read.” (Huffington Post on The English Girl)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Gabriel Allon, master art restorer and assassin, returns in a spellbinding new thriller from No.1 bestselling author Daniel Silva. For all fans of Robert Ludlum.

Sometimes the best way to find a stolen masterpiece is to steal another one…

Legendary spy and art restorer Gabriel Allon is in Venice repairing an altarpiece by Veronese when he receives an urgent summons from the Italian police. The art dealer Julian Isherwood has stumbled upon a chilling murder scene in Lake Como, and is being held as a suspect. To save his friend, Gabriel must perform one simple task: find the most famous missing painting in the world.

The dead man is a fallen British spy with a secret: he's been trafficking in stolen artworks and selling them to a mysterious collector. Among those paintings is the world's most iconic missing masterpiece: Caravaggio's glorious Nativity with St. Francis and St. Lawrence.

Gabriel embarks on a daring gambit to recover the Caravaggio that will take him on an exhilarating hunt—from Paris and London to Marseilles and Corsica, and finally, to a small private bank in Austria. Straddling the worlds of art and espionage, THE HEIST is a page-turning tale of intrigue, populated by a remarkable cast of spies, killers and thieves.

Beaucoup de copie collé de ses autres romans , apparemment pour rappler qui est Gabriel Allon, mais trop c'est trop. Pas très interessant ce dernier roman. Moins d'analyse politique, moins d'analyse historique que dans les autres, je pense que je ne lirai pas les prochains.

Excellent, Silva en grande forme
Mais, cher M. Silva, je ne suis pas sûr que le président de Syrie soit un tel monstre. Deux ans avant le "Printemps arabe", nous avons parcouru la Syrie, un vieux couple français dans un vieux 4x4. Les tracés Google Earth et un gps nous ont permis d'aller dans les régions reculées. Là, les femmes n'ont pas de voile (mais un simple fichu), là LES FILLES VONT A L'ÉCOLE ! Et à Hama, le restaurant sur l'Oronte était plein, les garçons escaladaient les grandes roues pour plonger.
"Le Monde" du 13 février 1982 qualifiait les émeutes de Hama: "lutte menée par les intégristes islamiques et leurs alliés contre le président Assad"...
Si je devais vivre sous le joug d'Assad ou de l'ISIS, Je choisirais sans hésiter le premier. Et vous aussi, mon cher Daniel Silva!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "The truth would not come without a price." 15 juillet 2014
Par E. Bukowsky - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
In Danial Silva's "The Heist," superspy Gabriel Allon takes time out from restoring a painting in Venice to investigate the torture and murder of Jack Bradshaw, a former British diplomat and businessman. Allon is on the trail of stolen art, in particular an altarpiece by Caravaggio that has been missing for decades. As usual, Allon's inquiries involve visits to various countries--England, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Israel, among them. When he learns that the repressive Syrian regime is connected to his case, Allon and his crack team of Israeli agents set in motion a complex covert operation.

There are few big surprises in this long-running series, but Silva has a devoted legion of fans for good reason. His "ripped-from-the headlines" themes resonate with those who have been following the turmoil and tragic slaughter in the Middle East. In addition, Silva brings the clandestine world of art theft and forgery out of the shadows, explaining how a great painting can be a valuable commodity, not just an object of beauty. As usual, Silva introduces a damsel in distress; this time, she is thirty-nine year old Jihan Nawaz, the sole survivor of a terrible massacre in the Syrian town of Hama.

Veteran readers must be patient while the author recaps plot points for readers unfamiliar with Allon's past. Many of the usual suspects are present: an ailing Ari Shamron; the archaeologist and surveillance expert, Eli Lavon; Uzi Navot, the head of Israel's secret intelligence service, and his clever wife, Bella; "the English assassin," Christopher Keller; and Gabriel's gorgeous and brilliant wife, Chiara. To his credit, Silva provides ample thrills along with his message: Brutal Arab dictators may serve a purpose (they keep rebellious and fanatical rebels under control), but at what price to the many innocents whom they annihilate? This fast-paced, darkly humorous, and engrossing page-turner explores cybercrime, looks at how mega-thieves exploit secret banking systems to hide their ill-gotten gains, and features a series of daring capers that, if successful, could change the balance of power in the Middle East. "The Heist" is destined to be another hit for the talented and prolific Daniel Silva.

It took half the book to get to the real plot. Too long. Then we have a political diatribe ( a correct one ! ) and a story functioning
Around ten Isreali computer hackers. Finally Gabriel does the least understandable thing ( I won't tell you in case you like this book.
Sorry I waited a year for this! Can only imagine the trivia we'll get from now on when Allon is head of the Office.
Mr Silva better get some new characters. These are stale.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Same old, same old... 18 juillet 2014
Par David - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
After over a dozen Allon books I liked very much, in his last 2 books, Silva seems to be painting by numbers. He returns to seeking the help of the Corsican assassins; has yet another encounter with an omniscient fortuneteller (tough to make a book which includes these elements seem realistic); has the same conversations with Shamron, his ex-wife, Chiara, etc; again is helped by the less than believable English assassin and Russian oligarch eager to spend huge amounts on his behalf; assembles his same old team; again converts a hater of Israel into an ally--on and on.

The writing is competent, but I found myself skimming, as the book is too long, too predictable and too repetitive.

Readers looking for better, more realistic spy thrillers (not Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, etc) should seek out Gerald Seymour, Alan Furst and even the recent Night Heron.

I will not spoil the climax, but it makes zero sense.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 You'll Agree, This Series Remains As Thrilling as Ever! 15 juillet 2014
Par Mathlete - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
The Heist begins with a murder investigation surrounding a stolen painting then turns hard left in a plot twist that takes us on an international journey intertwined with multiple spy agencies. Along for the ride, Allon plots to pull off a heist to steal Van Gogh's Sunflowers in an attempt to expose the underground market of stolen masterpieces and clear the name of his friend.

It is well known that Daniel Silva started his career as a journalist stationed in Africa and the Middle East and executive producer for CNN. You can easily tell throughout the Allon series that this international exposure gave him great insights and perspectives to make his storylines logical, realistic, and more importantly - timely.

The Heist is a great addition to the Gabriel Allon series that builds on intrigue and suspense reminiscent of the earlier novels in the Jason Bourne and Jack Ryan series - only better! You'll agree, that Daniel Silva hit another homerun that is sure to keep you entertained to the final pages.

****************************************
** WARNING - POTENTIAL SPOILERS BELOW **
****************************************

We begin with a murder investigation surrounding a stolen painting that quickly twists into a hunt for hidden assets of a Middle Eastern dictator.

Our hero, agent for `the Office', and resident bad-tail Gabriel Allon is is working in Venice on a restoration project and awaiting the birth of twins with his wife, Chiara. While working on the Veronese altar piece, Allon is called (back) into action.

Allon's friend, London art dealer Julian Isherwood, is is being held for the murder of an English diplomat after he finds the body in the victim's Lake Como villa. The murder victim, Jack Bradshaw, has been trafficking stolen works of art from around the globe including the masterpiece, Caravaggio's Nativity.

Local police threaten to pin Bradshaw's murder on Isherwood unless Allon finds the actual killer. It soon becomes clear to Allon that he must find the stolen Caravaggio to lead him to the true murderer and prove Isherwood's innocence.

That's when it get's interesting as Allon embarks on a whirlwind adventure of espionage, murder, theft, and political upheaval to find the buyer for the Caravaggio. As Allon peels back the layers of this case, author Daniel Silva introduces an array of British MI6, Israeli Intelligence, and other cloak-and-dagger characters into the ever twisting storyline. And in his quest for the truth, Allon discovers stolen art is being used to hide money for Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad and his regime.

This international thriller takes us on an escapade through Venice, Switzerland, the U.K., France, Germany, Israel, and Austria as Allon stages a heist of his own in order to solve the case of the missing Caravaggio. This novel is not for the reader who likes a simple, predictable plot. The Heist has a meaty plot complete with complex and intertwined storylines. This is not just a whodunit novel about simple murder. Daniel Silva takes us on a journey of espionage involving international banking and the evil motives behind the men who are supporting the market for stolen works of art.

One of the most powerful scenes in the book is when Gabriel visits his first wife, Leah to tell her he is going to be a father with Chiara. The scene is powerful as we read more into Leah's struggles with depression, PTSD, and her haunting memories of a past bombing. Leah can barely grasp the world around her and for Allon to reach out to her includes depth of writing you wouldn't expect from a typical spy thriller novel - however the Heist is nowhere near being a typical spy thriller.

This is a must read for fans of international spy thrillers and sure to keep you enthralled.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another thriller to keep you at the edge and satisfy your taste for another year. 16 juillet 2014

Another chapter in the life of Gabriel Allón. Never get tired of his adventures and stories. Daniel Silva is today, to my opinion, the best political, contemporary thriller writer. In the company of Tom Clancy and Robert Ludlum able to create a truthful story, semi fiction-fact that will keep you waiting for every July to find out the newest adventure in the new book about this anti hero, brooding genius and guardian of his heritage and traditions.

Each one is separate from the previous one and self standing but at the same time a continuation of a larger story.

Thank you Mr. Silva for this new chapter.
