Over the course of ten previous novels, Daniel Silva has established himself as one of the world’s finest writers of international intrigue and espionage—“a worthy successor to such legends as Frederick Forsyth and John le Carré” (Chicago Sun-Times)—and Gabriel Allon as “one of the most intriguing heroes of any thriller series” (The Philadelphia Inquirer).

Now the death of a journalist leads Allon to Russia, where he finds that, in terms of spycraft, even he has something to learn. He’s playing by Moscow rules now.

It is not the grim, gray Moscow of Soviet times but a new Moscow, awash in oil wealth and choked with bulletproof Bentleys. A Moscow where power resides once more behind the walls of the Kremlin and where critics of the ruling class are ruthlessly silenced. A Moscow where a new generation of Stalinists is plotting to reclaim an empire lost and to challenge the global dominance of its 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, however, is a more 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.

Best series ever. Gabriel Allon is Isreal's Jack Bauer.

I am a HUGE fan of Gabriel Allon!!! He has a heart of gold, strong passion and love for his "family." I can't wait to finish to see how he gets himself and/or his family out of the "pickles" they get themselves in. I, also, really like the new narrator, he's very good with the nuances of the voices.

I have become a fan of Daniel Silva and his character Gabriel Allon. This is the latest story where Allon comes out of retirement. If new to the series, don't make this your first and take the time to be introduced to the characters that weave in and out of Silva's novels.

This is one of my favorite series. Never disappointing, the story line keeps your interest and the writing has just enough depth. Best to listen to Silva's earlier novels first to truly enjoy it.

I'm a big fan of Daniel Silva's Gabriel Allon novels, and this one did not disappoint. The narrator is very good, and the story moves along at a good pace.
