"‚Die Attentäterin‘ zeigt Daniel Silva in gewohnter Form. 80 kurze Kapitel voll überraschender Wendungen und rasanter Action bieten spannende Lektüre von der ersten bis zur letzten Seite." dpa "Realistischer und aktueller geht es nicht." Landeszeitung für die Lüneburger Heide "Routiniert entwickelt der Bestsellerautor realistische Figuren, deren radikale Denkmuster er glaubhaft wie hautnah vermitteln kann, und steigert die Spannung bis zum dramatischen Finale. Da bleibt nur zu hoffen, dass seine fiktionale Terrorszenarien niemals Realität werden und verdammt gute Unterhaltungsliteratur bleiben." Kulturnews "Mich hat sowohl das Personal überzeugt als auch die Handlung. Alle Figuren sind für mich stimmig, sie interagieren überzeugend und haben mich von Anfang an in ihren Bann gezogen. Genauso die Handlung, die zwar mutig ist, aber ich kann mir trotzdem vorstellen, dass sie (fast) genau so real passieren kann." Krimimimi "Von den tatsächlichen Ereignissen beim Schreiben überholt, zeigt der US-Amerikaner einmal mehr, wie nahe er in seinen Büchern der Wirklichkeit kommt. Packend spiegelt ‚Die Attentäterin‘ die komplexen Welten von Geheimdiensten, Spionen und einem global agierenden Terrornetzwerk wider und zeichnet sich dabei neben fundierter Recherche durch facettenreiche Figuren aus, die die Motive aller Charaktere nachvollziehbar machen." Krimi-Tipp "Personen, Dialoge und Handlungen wirken komplett authentisch - und das ist man von Daniel Silva so gewohnt. Auf manchen Büchern steht nur Thriller drauf - hier ist Spannung auch wirklich drin." Krimi-Couch.de "Daniel Silva bestätigt seinen Ruf als einer der führenden Autoren von Agententhrillern. Die Seiten blättern sich, wie von selbst." - New York Journal of Books "Ein literarisches Pulverfass” - The Huffington Post

Number One Bestseller The incredible story of the murder which gripped the nation. When Tom Nevin was brutally murdered in Jack White's Inn on the morning of 19 March 1996 there was widespread mourning for the man known as a 'gentle giant'. And none seemed as grief-stricken as his widow, Catherine. She stood by the graveside holding a single red rose, the classic symbol of a lost love. But even as that picture occupied the front page of the nation's newspapers, the rumours had started. Four years later Catherine Nevin stood in the dock and listened impassively as a jury found her guilty of murdering her husband, and guilty on three counts of soliciting others to murder. The trial had kept the entire country enthralled, as every day more bizarre stories emerged: contract killers, money laundering, the IRA, sexual affairs, plastic surgery, contacts in high places.
