Daniel Silva Discusses THE CELLIST

Thu, July 15 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm EDT

Gabriel Allon is back in action and New York Times best-selling author Daniel Silva will talk about his newest mission in The Cellist with Joe Meyers.

The fatal poisoning of a Russian billionaire sends Gabriel Allon on a dangerous journey across Europe and into the orbit of a musical virtuoso who may hold the key to the truth about his friend’s death. The plot Allon uncovers leads to secret channels of money and influence that go to the very heart of Western democracy and threaten the stability of the global order.

The Cellist is a breathtaking entry in Daniel Silva’s “outstanding series” (People magazine) and reveals once more his superb artistry and genius for invention—and demonstrates why he belongs “firmly alongside le Carré and Forsyth as one of the greatest spy novelists of all time” (The Real Book Spy).

Joe Meyers is director of programming for Focus on French Cinema, the five day festival held each spring in Greenwich, Stamford and New York City. He also co-hosts the Spotify podcast, ‘Now a Major Motion Picture!’

For more than 30 years Meyers was an arts writer and film reviewer for the Hearst newspapers in Connecticut. Meyers also managed (and programmed) the first art house and repertory movie theater in Delaware, the Lewes Cinema.
