As the new head of the Secret Intelligence Service, Davina Graham faces her most daunting challenge: solving a series of seemingly random political murders in international waters

The first female head of Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service, Davina Graham is taking a well-deserved holiday with her lover, advertising executive Tony Walden. But her Venetian idyll is short-lived. On the Grand Canal, widowed US Secretary of the Defense Henry Franklyn and his daughter are killed when a bomb blows their gondola to smithereens. The local police believe it was the work of the rabid Red Brigade or the Palestine Liberation Organization because Franklyn was a Jew. But Davina is certain that Igor Borisov, the power-hungry head of the KGB who ordered the assassination of Davina’s Russian defector husband, is behind it. 

Another murder soon makes international headlines: the massacre of France’s minister of the interior and her family. Then the Soviet prime minister is killed in Poland, followed by the death of a pacifist British priest in London. The assassinations bring Davina’s ex-lover out of retirement. Forced to once again join forces with Intelligence agent Colin Lomax, while coping with a sudden death in her own family, Davina is determined to find evidence linking Borosov to the executions. The hunt leads to a shadowy organization called the Company of Saints, a private brigade of hired killers whose chilling end game is just beginning.
 
The Company of Saints is the 4th book in the Davina Graham Thrillers, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

MI6 agent Davina Graham plunges into a hotbed of international intrigue when she penetrates the inner sanctum of one of the US president’s top aides, and tracks an elusive criminal from the White House to Moscow to Mexico City.
 
Still reeling from the murder of her husband, Ivan Sasanov, at the hands of the KGB, British Intelligence agent Davina Graham has been called back into active service to head off a potential international crisis. The British-born wife of Edward Fleming, the US president’s assistant under-secretary of state and close friend, has appealed to the British ambassador for sanctuary. Elizabeth Fleming claims that her husband tried to murder her because she found out he was passing information to the Russians. Fleming’s first wife died in a fire in their Mexico vacation home, but it was officially ruled an accident. Now the Secret Intelligence Service needs Davina to find out whether Elizabeth’s allegations are true. If so, Elizabeth’s life could be in grave danger. But it may already be too late.
 
Now a target herself, Davina follows a labyrinthine trail that takes her from the inner circles of Washington to Mexico City and a clinic in the mountains that will bring a fiendishly clever global conspiracy full circle. On the edge of uncovering the truth about two seemingly unrelated murders, she uses herself as bait to trap an elusive criminal known as the Plumed Serpent.

NOW YOU SEE HER

NOW YOU DON’T

THE NEW GIRL

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Daniel Silva comes a stunning new thriller of deception, betrayal, and vengeance.

She was covered from head to toe in expensive wool and plaid, the sort of stuff one saw at the Burberry boutique in Harrods. She carried a leather bookbag rather than a nylon backpack. Her patent leather ballet slippers were glossy and bright. She was proper, the new girl, modest. But there was something else about her …

At an exclusive private school in Switzerland, mystery surrounds the identity of the beautiful raven-haired girl who arrives each morning in a 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 his only child is brutally kidnapped, he turns to the one man he can trust to find her before it is too late.

What’s done cannot be undone …

Gabriel Allon, the legendary chief of Israeli intelligence, has spent most of his life fighting terrorists, including the murderous jihadists financed by Saudi Arabia. Prince Khalid—or KBM, as he is known—has pledged to finally break the bond between the Kingdom and radical Islam. For that reason alone, Gabriel regards him as a valuable if flawed partner. Together they will become unlikely allies in a deadly secret war for control of the Middle East. The life of a child, and the throne of Saudi Arabia, hang in the balance. Both men have made their share of enemies. And both have everything to lose.

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. And it is once again proof that Gabriel Allon is “one of fiction’s greatest spies” (Kirkus) and Daniel Silva is “quite simply the best” (Kansas City Star) writer of foreign intrigue and suspense at work today.
