Daniel Silva has been called his generation's finest writer of international
intrigue and one of the greatest American spy novelists ever.
Compelling, passionate, haunting, brilliant: these are the words that
have been used to describe the work of this #1 New York Times-bestselling
Silva burst onto the scene in 1997 with his
electrifying bestselling debut, The Unlikely Spy, a novel of love and
deception set around the Allied invasion of France in World War II. His
second and third novels, The Mark of the Assassin and The Marching
Season, were also instant New York Times bestsellers and starred two of
Silva's most memorable characters: CIA officer Michael Osbourne and
international hit man Jean-Paul Delaroche. But it was Silva's fourth
novel, The Kill Artist, which would alter the course of his career. The
novel featured a character described as one of the most memorable and
compelling in contemporary fiction, the art restorer and sometime
Israeli secret agent Gabriel Allon, and though Silva did not realize it
at the time, Gabriel's adventures had only just begun. Gabriel Allon
appears in Silva's next thirteen novels, each one more successful than the
last. Silva's forthcoming novel, The English Girl, will be
published in July 2013.
Silva knew from a very early age that
he wanted to become a writer, but his first profession would be
journalism. Born in Michigan, raised and educated in California, he was
pursuing a master's degree in international relations when he received a
temporary job offer from United Press International to help cover the
1984 Democratic National Convention in San Francisco. Later that year
Silva abandoned his studies and joined UPI fulltime, working first in
San Francisco, then on the foreign desk in Washington, and finally as
Middle East correspondent in Cairo and the Persian Gulf. In 1987, while
covering the Iran-Iraq war, he met NBC Today National Correspondent
Jamie Gangel and they were married later that year. Silva returned to
Washington and went to work for CNN and became Executive Producer of its
talk show unit including shows like Crossfire, Capital Gang and
In 1995 he confessed to Jamie that his true
ambition was to be a novelist. With her support and encouragement he
secretly began work on the manuscript that would eventually become the
instant bestseller The Unlikely Spy. He left CNN in 1997 after the
book's successful publication and began writing full time. Since then
all of Silva's books have been New York Times and international
bestsellers. His books have been translated in to more than 25 languages
and are published around the world. Silva continues to reside in
Washington with his wife and teenage twins Lily and Nicholas.
