A pleasant enough read. Other than Madeline Hart in the beginning part, didn't bond much with the characters. So, when it came to the 'climatic' part of the book I really wasn't emotionally invested enough to care whether characters lived or died. Too many characters and shallowly developed.

The English Girl is the first Daniel Silva novel I have read and I rather enjoyed both the political and spy vs. spy intrigue as well as the humor. It's the story of a scandal involving the Prime Minister of Britain, but the travels take us to Corsica, France, Israel, and Russia. Read full review
