Daniel Silva to present his new spy thriller, The New Girl, at the Evelyn Rubenstein JCC
Tuesday, July 9, 2019

Daniel Silva will be presenting his forthcoming book, The New Girl, in the Kaplan Theatre at the Evelyn Rubenstein JCC of Houston, 5601 South Braeswood on Sunday, July 21 at 7:00 PM.  Silva will be in conversation with his wife, CNN Special Correspondent Jamie Gangel.

Filled with dark humor, breathtaking twists of plot, and an unforgettable cast of characters, The New Girl is both a thrilling, page-turning tale of entertainment and a sophisticated study of political alliances and great-power rivalries in a dangerous world.  At an exclusive private school in Switzerland, mystery surrounds the identity of the beautiful girl who arrives each morning and leaves each afternoon in a heavily protected motorcade fit for a head of state. She is said to be the daughter of a wealthy international businessman. In truth, her father is Khalid bin Mohammed, the much-maligned crown prince of Saudi Arabia. Once celebrated for his daring social and religious reforms, he is now reviled for his role in the murder of a dissident journalist. And when she is brutally kidnapped across the border in the Haute-Savoie region of France, Gabriel Allon, the legendary chief of Israeli intelligence, is thrust into a deadly secret war with an old enemy that will determine the future of the Middle East—and perhaps the world…

Silva has written over 20 thrillers, including 17 Gabriel Allon novels, and has been called his generation’s finest writer of international intrigue. He is considered one of the greatest American spy novelists ever.  His books have been translated in to more than 30 languages and are published around the world.  Silva is no stranger to the J audience. He has visited Houston on several of his book tours including The Heist in 2014, House of Spies in 2017, and the opening of the Jewish Book & Arts Festival in 2007.
