The Kill Artist


The tragedy of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and despair of its resolution provide the backdrop for Silva’s heart-stopping, complex yarn of international terrorism and intrigue…. An array of global locales adds to the complexity and authenticity of the dizzying, cinematic plot.”
Publishers Weekly

Although the novel moves at a really fast clip, cutting from location to location, Silva avoids the espionage novelist’s sin of glossy locales and comic-book action by giving his characters, even the minor ones, believably complex motivations that come into play in the thriller’s overriding conflict. Part of the interest of Silva’s work is the way he portrays various professions (here it’s art dealership, publishing, and modeling) to be every bit as cutthroat as international intrigue.”

A master writer of espionage … [Silva's] writing is clean, crisp, and compelling.”
Cincinnati Enquirer

[A] thrill-a-minute sure-fire bestseller [that] rips Middle East strife from the headlines.”
