NEW YORK (AP) - Best-selling novelist Daniel Silva has a new book deal.

Silva has agreed to write three novels for HarperCollins. The publisher announced Wednesday the first book comes out next summer. Silva says it has a “big surprise” for his fans.

Silva is the author of such hit thrillers as “The Defector” and “The Rembrandt Affair,” featuring art restorer and Israeli spy Gabriel Allon. Harper spokeswoman Tina Andreadis won’t comment on whether the upcoming novels will include Allon.

Silva’s recent work was released by G.P. Putnam’s Sons, an imprint of Penguin Group (USA).

Silva is married to Jamie Gangel, a national correspondent for NBC’s “Today” show. His book deal was negotiated by Washington-based attorney Robert Barnett, known for political clients including President Barack Obama and former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton.

Financial terms haven’t been disclosed.
