The New Girl is the 19th of Silva’s Gabriel Allon series, and begins with a new girl at an exclusive boarding school vanishing. The young girl is the daughter of Saudi Arabia’s controversial crown prince. The prince, through a mutual friend, meets with Allon and convinces him that he is truly an agent of change in the Middle East and asks Gabriel Allomn for his help in rescuing his daughter, which becomes anything but straightforward. Silva weaves this latest tale with more current events than is his norm, and in so doing, provides a convincing and current storyline with unexpected twists and turns.
