Shortlisted for the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger 2009.

CWA Judges’ comments: A masterful rendering of a story that sounds uncomfortably close to the truth. A credible cast of characters, written with style and wit. It's great to be in the hands of a writer who knows exactly what he is doing.

If you like Daniel Silva you might also like to read books by Matt Hilton, Vince Flynn and Trevanian.

Synopsis

Moscow Rules by Daniel Silva

The violent death of a journalist leads secret agent Gabriel Allon to Russia. But this is not the grim Moscow of Soviet times, but a new Moscow, awash in oil wealth and in thrall to a new generation of rich Stalinists plotting to challenge an old enemy: the United States. One such man is Ivan Kharkov, a former KGB colonel whose global empire is built on a lucrative and deadly business. Kharkov is an arms dealer - and he's about to sell Russia's most dangerous weapon to al-Qaeda. Unless Allon can learn the time and place of delivery, the world will suffer its deadliest terror attack since 9/11. The countdown to Armageddon has begun.
