The English Girl - Daniel Silva

Easily one of the best 2 or 3 books I've read this year so far. The more Silva I read, the more I'm convinced he's the master right now in the classic international thriller genre. The plot of Russia destabilizing the U.K. government to acquire oil drilling rights in the North Sea is a master stoke, and one that the reader can easily see happen in today's world. Gabriel Allon continues to be one of the best constructed leading characters in just about any book one reads, said spy being put in charge of finding a kidnapped mistress of Great Britain's PM. Her disappearance ties in neatly with Russia's treacherous plot...and everything basically goes to hell in a handbasket the rest of the book. Highly recommended...
