Daniel Silva — Author of Mossad-Themed Thrillers — has New One, ‘The English Girl’: Here’s Silva Praising ‘Spies Against Armageddon’

Daniel Silva has a new thriller, starring his fictional Mossad assassin Gabriel Allon. This one’s titled The English Girl, already drawing widespread praise.

Last summer, on NBC-TV’s Today, he kindly said about Dan Raviv and Yossi Melman: “No one knows more about the Mossad than these two guys.”

spies against armageddon, today showOn the NBC Today Show in July 2012, as bestselling thriller writer Daniel Silva was discussing his new book, The Fallen Angel  — again featuring his fictional Israeli intelligence officer and assassin — NBC’s Matt Lauer asked Daniel to name his three favorite books for the summer.
The authors of Spies Against Armageddon, Dan Raviv and Yossi Melman, were as surprised as anyone at what Daniel Silva said in the last minute of his appearance on Today.  He recommended Raviv and Melman’s book and told Matt Lauer:  “I write about fictitious Israeli intelligence officers. They write about the real thing.  No one knows more about the Mossad than these two guys.”

It was part of a series on the Today Show called “Sizzling Summer Reads.”

And, from the Today Show website, here are Daniel’s responses, when asked for his favorite books to read this summer — and one of the non-fiction books he mentions is near and dear to this blog’s heart:
At the beach

“The Impeachment of Abraham Lincoln” by Stephen Carter (Knopf) — “a great alternative history by a great American novelist and legal scholar who also happens to be a great friend.”

For a Rainy Day

“The Quality Instinct: Seeing Art Through a Museum Director’s Eye” by Maxwell Anderson  (American Association of Museums) — “Max will take you behind the scenes of a museum and teach you how to look at pieces of art and understand why they’re important, why they’re worthy of being displayed on a museum’s wall.”

Under the Covers

“Spies Against Armageddon”  by Dan Raviv and Yossi Melman (Levant Books) —
“I write about fictitious spies, but Dan and Yossi write about real Israeli operatives. These two journalists know more about the Israeli intelligence community than anyone.”
