Bestselling Author Daniel Silva on Stage at the Kaplan Theatre

Houston, TX – Evelyn Rubenstein JCC of Houston presents Daniel Silva’s return to the Kaplan Theatre to discuss his latest work Sunday, July 16 at 5:00 p.m.

Each summer readers anticipate the return of legendary art restorer and sometime Israeli secret agent, Gabriel Allon. In Daniel Silva’s newest heart-stopping tale of suspense, House of Spies, Allon is back and out for revenge determined to hunt down the world’s most dangerous terrorist, a shadowy ISIS mastermind known only as Saladin. A terrorist plot leaves a trail of carnage through London’s West End. The attack is a brilliant feat of planning and secrecy, but with one loose thread. The thread leads Gabriel Allon and his team to the south of France and to the gilded doorstep of one of the richest men in the country and his companion, a beautiful former British fashion model.

Daniel Silva has been called his generation's finest writer of international intrigue and one of the greatest American spy novelists ever. Compelling, passionate, haunting, brilliant: these are the words that have been used to describe his work. Silva burst onto the scene in 1997 with his electrifying debut, The Unlikely Spy, a novel of love and deception set around the Allied invasion of France in World War II. Before writing the book, Silva was CNN's talk show unit Executive Producer, and produced shows like Crossfire, Capital Gang and Reliable Sources. In 1995 he secretly began work on the manuscript for The Unlikely Spy which eventually became an instant bestseller. He left CNN in 1997 after the book's successful publication and began writing full time. Since then, all of Silva's books have been New York Times and international bestsellers. They have been translated into more than 30 languages and published around the world.

            “One of the many reasons Daniel Silva’s books are so outstanding is his grasp on the world.  Frightening at times, his stories seem ahead of the news, or at the very least, while we’re reading his ‘fiction’, we’re also reading the same, but in reality, in our newspapers,” said Marilyn Hassid, Evelyn Rubenstein JCC Assistant Executive Director.

            For Daniel Silva lovers, this is an opportunity not just to buy a signed book, but to gain a deeper understanding of his writing from the author himself in an evening that features a moderated conversation by Houston Public Media’s government and political reporter Andrew Schneider in the intimacy of the Kaplan Theatre. This is a ticketed event which includes a copy of the book. A reception and book signing follows the program.  Tickets available at Find us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
