The fair kicks off with an 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3 visit at Temple Solel, 3575 Manchester Ave., Cardiff By The Sea, from New York Times best-selling author, Daniel Silva, who has written “15 pulse-pounding spy and intrigue novels taken from tomorrow’s headlines,” according to press materials.

Opening night of the San Diego Jewish Book Fair will feature a talk with Daniel Silva at 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3, Temple Solel, 3575 Manchester Ave., Cardiff By The Sea. Silva is the best-selling author of “The Fallen Angel” and “The Rembrandt Affair,” among others, as he speaks with news anchor Susan Taylor, of NBC 7 San Diego, about his characters, his craft and his calling.

Silva’s latest, “The Fallen Angel,” reprises Gabriel Allon, art expert and wayward son of Israeli intelligence, who is working behind the walls of the Vatican, restoring one of Caravaggio’s greatest masterpieces. But while working in the conservation lab, he learns that the body of a beautiful woman (a curator from the antiquities department) lies smashed and broken beneath Michelangelo’s magnificent dome. The Vatican police suspect suicide, though Gabriel, with his restorer’s eye and flawless memory, believes otherwise.

The 2012 books featured were chosen by the Book Selection Committee after months of reading, research, and attendance at national and international booksellers conventions Proceeds from book sales will be used to support the programs of the San Diego Center for Jewish Culture, which is sponsoring the event.
