Islamic Terrorism & Anti-Semitism in France

I'm sorry about the late post! I really should have gotten one ready yesterday, but I got sucked into watching a tv series instead (I'll mention it in the next Couch Potato) and I forgot that I had an eye doctor appointment early this morning. So all morning my eyes were dilated and I couldn't really read or type anything.

Today I'll feature another book, this time a novel, Newt Gingrich recommended last week when he was taking about the Islamist terrorist attack in Nice. He mentioned it as a "remarkable book" that shows the "systematic Islamic attack on Jews in France."

Here is the blurb:

#1 New York Times bestselling author Daniel Silva delivers another spellbinding international thriller—one that finds the legendary Gabriel Allon grappling with an ISIS mastermind.

Gabriel Allon, the art restorer, spy, and assassin described as the most compelling fictional creation "since Ian Fleming put down his martini and invented James Bond" (Rocky Mountain News), is poised to become the chief of Israel’s secret intelligence service. But on the eve of his promotion, events conspire to lure him into the field for one final operation. ISIS has detonated a massive bomb in the Marais district of Paris, and a desperate French government wants Gabriel to eliminate the man responsible before he can strike again.

Acclaimed novelist Daniel Silva has thrilled, entertained and educated readers with eighteen thoughtful and gripping spy novels featuring a diverse cast of compelling characters and ingenious plots that have taken them around the globe and back—from the United States to Europe, Russia to the Middle East. From its shocking opening to its explosive denouement in Washington, D.C., The Black Widow reveals itself as Silva’s most timely and powerful novel yet. Following the success of his smash hit The English Spy, this electrifying thriller showcases Silva’s consummate skill and brilliant imagination, and is sure to be a must read for his multitude of current and future fans.

The Black Widow is the 16th book in the long-running Gabriel Allon series which started with The Kill Artist.
