He has been called his generation's finest writer of international intrigue and one of the greatest American spy novelists ever. Daniel Silva, the #1 New York Times bestselling author, is back by popular demand as a new addition to the Arts & Letters Live lineup.
Daniel Silva knew from a very early age that he wanted to become a writer, but his first profession was journalism. After covering the Iran-Iraq War as a UPI Middle East correspondent, he returned to Washington to take a job at CNN. Silva began working on his first novel, The Unlikely Spy, a novel of love and deception set around the Allied invasion of France during World War II. The electrifying debut novel became an instant bestseller and catapulted Silva onto the literary scene. Since then, all of Silva's books have been New York Times and international bestsellers.
In his latest novel, The Heist (July 15), Daniel Silva returns with another powerhouse of a novel that showcases his outstanding skill and brilliant imagination. Gabriel Allon, art restorer and occasional spy, searches for a stolen masterpiece by Caravaggio in this action-packed tale of high stakes international intrigue. The Heist is sure to be a must-read for both his multitudes of fans and growing legions of converts.
