The Black Widow was written by Daniel Silva, narrated by George Guidall, and is about fourteen hours of listening in unabridged audiobook format. Book 16 in the Gabriel Allon Series, released in 2016 by Harper Audio.

Gabriel Allon, the man responsible for taking down the killers of Isreali athletes during the 1980 Munich Olympics, is pulled from his life as a fine arts restoration expert and tasked with finding the terrorists responsible for violent and deadly explosions in Paris, France. ISIS is responsible – a story from today’s headlines. Gabriel’s plan involves the recruitment and training of a woman to infiltrate ISIS. America is the next target.

The Black Widow is an espionage novel that stands alone, i.e., it is not necessary to read the entire series to enjoy this story. There is no gratuitous sex, no objectionable language – a clean read.

Narration by George Guidall is awesome. If you have never listened to Guidall’s audio productions, do yourself a favor and you will not be disappointed. He is excellent, one of the best at his craft. The Black Widow, although predictable at times, is a page-turning thriller with many near-death close calls for several characters. Not difficult to follow.

A recommended read (listen). Enjoy!
