Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Elegantly paced, subtle, and well-informed, it’s more textured than Bond—more mojito than dry martini. If you haven’t read Silva before, try this—and then go back and read the series.” Daily Mail (London)
“Much more than a mere up-to-the-minute thriller. It’s also a bona fide thrill ride…Portrait paints a picture of a terror-wracked world we often read about in the news. That it does so with a thrust that trumps even the boldest developments is testament to Silva’s talents. It’s also testament to the talents of the learned and lethal Allon, who’s the closest thing we’ve got to a Renaissance secret agent.” Miami Herald
“Suspense writing at its best and character writing that will stay with you for a long, long time.” Huffington Post
“Simon Vance turns in a nuanced performance…His narration is brisk and engaging, and his talent for creating different accents allows him to switch between Israeli, British, and American characters, almost in the same breath…Silva fans should be enraptured.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Fittingly intriguing for the genre. Gadgets, backstabbing machinations, and political duplicities lend an aura of realism to the intricate plot.” Kirkus Reviews
“The characters and plot are cutting-edge current and echo real terrorists, making it a chilling and foreboding read.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
