Over the course of ten previous novels, Daniel Silva has
established himself as one of the worldâ€™s finest writers of
international intrigue and espionageâ€” â€śa worthy successor to

Now the death of a journalist leads Allon to Russia, where
he finds that, in terms of spycraft, even he has something
to learn. Heâ€™s playing by Moscow rules now.
This is not the grim, gray Moscow of Soviet times but a new
Moscow, awash in oil wealth and choked with bulletproof
Bentleys. A Moscow where power resides once more behind the
walls of the Kremlin and where critics of the ruling class
are ruthlessly silenced. A Moscow where a new generation of
Stalinists is plotting to reclaim an empire lost and to
challenge the global dominance of its old enemy, the United
One such man is Ivan Kharkov, a former KGB colonel who built
a global investment empire on the rubble of the Soviet
Union. Hidden within that empire, however, is a more

he is about to deliver Russiaâ€™s most sophisticated weapons
to al- Qaeda. Unless Allon can learn the time and place of
the delivery, the world will see the deadliest terror
attacks since 9/11â€”and the clock is ticking fast.
Filled with rich prose and breathtaking turns of plot,
Moscow Rules is at once superior entertainment and a searing
cautionary tale about the new threats rising to the Eastâ€”and
Silvaâ€™s finest novel yet.
