The Cellist by Daniel Silva


The Cellist is the 21st title in Daniel Silva‘s Gabriel Allon series.

It was released on July 13, 2021 and subsequently reached #1 on the New York Times Bestseller List

The book draws heavily from the COVID-19 pandemic and the 2020 American presidential election as well as the U.S. Capitol events of January 6, 2021. …

The plot is contemporary and interesting. Action is limited by COVID restrictions.

Dictator Putin and President Biden are important characters.

Some of my favourite characters from past books — especially Christopher Keller — are included.

I have no idea why Allon is still front and centre in the field. As leader of the Mossad he should be working behind the scenes. And should definitely RETIRE after this one.
