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.

Another great Silva book, as Allon is drawn back into the Israeli spy gambit investigating suspected Russian journalist murders by a Russian arms dealer, as well as trying to prevent future terrorist attacks as a result of these arms deals. Silva always seems to know how to build the suspense in a b...

4.0 Moscow Rules (Gabriel Allon)
Yet another solid offering from Daniel Silva. I really enjoy the Gabriel Allon series. I would probably rate this 3.5/5 on its own and do not think it is one of the better books in the series. However, I still really enjoyed it and love the writing style. I thought this particular story dragged ...

Just as good as Silva is with his other Gabriel Allon books. Great ending & loved Phil Gigante as the narrator of this audio!! Excellent! Since not commuting to & from work, I've gotten out of the habit of listening to audiobooks & have just been reading. I had forgotten what a true pleasure it ...

This book's title, Moscow Rules, hearkens back to the spy novels of John LeCarré, and books such as Martin Cruz Smith's Gorky Park. But there is an important distinction to make at the outset. The Moscow Rules of these earlier spy stories were born at the heart of the Cold War, before the time of i...

3.0 Moscow Rules (Gabriel Allon)
I’ve read a lot of spy novels, but this was the first I’ve read by the author. It struck me as being formulaic with not many thrills. If this book was ice cream it would be vanilla. I would have liked more background on the characters so I could relate to them better, but there is very little. The w...
