In an isolated village in the mountains of Andalusia, a mysterious Frenchwoman begins work on a dangerous memoir. It is the story of a man she once loved in the Beirut of old, and a child taken from her in treason’s name. The woman is the keeper of the Kremlin’s most closely guarded secret. Long ago, the KGB inserted a mole into the heart of the West - a mole who stands on the doorstep of ultimate power. Only one man can unravel the conspiracy: Gabriel Allon, the legendary art restorer and assassin who serves as the chief of Israel’s vaunted secret intelligence service. Gabriel has battled the dark forces of the new Russia before, at great personal cost. Now he and the Russians will engage in a final epic showdown, with the fate of the postwar global order hanging in the balance.

Not typical of Daniel Silva!
All of Daniel Silva's novels including his 18 in the Gabriel Allon series are in my Audible library. THE OTHER WOMAN, Book 18 in the Allon series, is Silva's most complex novel and the most difficult to read and understand. At its simplest it goes back in British intelligence history to 1963 when at age 51 Kim Philby was found to be a Russian agent who was very high in British Intelligence. It then supposes that Philby had a daughter by a French woman who is second in command in current British Intelligence. She is also a Russian agent. But the plot is much more complex as it involves Gabriel Allon of Israel's "office", and leaders and agents of British, US, and Russian intelligence. It is a great plot that I have down rated from 5 to 4 stars because some of the complexity gets in the way of an otherwise great plot at times. George Guidall's narration is superb as usual.

Silva does it again.
Silva hasn't lost his touch, not a bit. What surprised me was the father of the mole, Kim Philby, who I've read about, when Guidall had the character stammer, I knew who it was. Guidall does excellent narration as always, not bad for someone in his 80's.
