Synopsis of this title

The extraordinary new Gabriel Allon thriller from one of the world's finest writers of international intrigue and espionage. The violent death of a journalist leads agent turned art-restorer, Gabriel Allon, to Russia. Here he finds that in terms of spycraft, the stakes are the highest they've ever been. He's playing by Moscow Rules now. It is not the grim Moscow of Soviet times, but a new Moscow, awash in oil wealth and bulletproof Bentleys.A Moscow where a new generation of Stalinists is plotting to reclaim an empire lost and to challenge the global dominance of the old enemy, the United States. One such man is Ivan Kharkov, a former KGB colonel who built a global investment empire on the rubble of the Soviet Union. Hidden within that empire is a lucrative and deadly business. Kharkov is an arms dealer - and he is about to deliver Russia's most sophisticated weapons to al-Qaeda. Unless Allon can learn the time and place of the delivery, the world will see the deadliest terror attacks since 9/11 - and the clock is ticking fast. Filled with rich prose and breathtaking turns of plot, "Moscow Rules" is at once superior entertainment and a searing cautionary tale about the new threats rising to the East - and Silva's finest novel yet.

Reviews of this title

quotes

"There is a reason that each successive book featuring Allon sells more than the last. Silva continues to provide some of the most exciting spy fiction since Ian Fleming put down his martini and invented James Bond."
–Rocky Mountain News

"A masterwork... Some long-running series get tired; Silva's just improves with each new book. Highly recommended."
–Library Journal

"Silva packs his pages with detailed tradecraft — and with local color that lives and breathes of such settings as the French Riviera, London, Paris and (of course, given the title) Moscow."
–St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"Put Moscow Rules atop your summer beach book list."
–St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"Silva's plot is wonderfully constructed, with plenty of action and suspense... Silva just gets better as the questions get harder."
–Chicago Sun-Times

"A crackling yarn that keeps the pages turning."
–Manchester Journal
