Brilliant, fast paced and a non-stop thrill ride. Much better than anything Dan Brown has produced.

In "Silver", the author, Steven Savile, introduces us to Noah Larkin and the rest of the Omgios Team. After thirteen, very public, suicides in thirteen different cities, a new terrorist group emerges threatening forty days and forty nights of terror. In a race against time, the author takes us from England, to Germany, to Rome and, even, to Israel as they piece together the connection of the martyrs. The question is, can they fit all the pieces together to save the Pope, who is the apparent target of this new terror group.
"Silver" is a well written, suspense filled novel. I like the fact that he went outside of the "norm" in terms of the religious fanaticism. What makes this novel spectacular, though, is that you never see it coming. Just when you think you have it figured out, you realize that you're wrong. Trust me, you don't see it coming. When I finished with it, all I could say was, wow.

Silver by Steven Savile is everything you could hope for in a thriller: a fast, exciting pace, a well wrought and fresh plot line, dynamic, well-rounded, well defined characters and some of the best writing I’ve seen in a thriller in a good while. If Dan Brown could write half as well as Steven Savile, The Da Vinci Code would have been a much more tolerable read.
There are six main characters in Silver: Sir Charles Wyndham, Noah Larkin, Ronan Frost, Orla Nyrén, Jude Lethe and Konstantin Khavin and, as Noah Larkin observes, each has his/her own story, each their own flaws. Mr. Savile manages to keep each true to his/her own unique voice, not always the easiest of tasks in a multiple protagonist story. Throw in some great secondary characters, a triple dose of bad guys, a backer’s dozen worth of martyrs, an assassination or two or three and a whole lot of innocent dead people coupled with an interesting twist on an old Biblical tale, all of it woven together with some seriously great writing, and you’ve got a book that is hard, if not impossible, to put down until the last page is turned. Had I not just started my own third novel, I would have read this in a single sitting. As it was, it was one of those rare books where I found myself racing toward the end while at the same time not wanting to turn that last page.
