Daniel Silva is a former journalist and now a bestselling American author that writes what I would call spectacular spy novels full of international intrigue.

His first book, The Unlikely Spy, was published in 1997. And the rest, as we say, is history.

From there, he went on to write two more novels (The Michael Osbourne series), and then created the legendary character Gabriel Allon.

Here is the list of all his books.

One of the interesting things about Daniel Silva’s books is that he takes things that are happening in current world affairs and weaves them into his books. Sometimes rather last minute. In other words, he may add a storyline that he hadn’t originally planned on because of something that’s suddenly currently happening in the world.

This really adds a dose of reality to the books. He explained how world events sometimes influence his books on a recent visit to the Today show, where he was talking about his last book, The Cellist.

Not yet.

But rumor has it that the rights to the books were acquired. However, no further information has been made public on whether a movie will actually be made and if so, when that might be.
