Staff Reviews


This classic spy Cold War style thriller, written by a 35 year CIA veteran, is everything you can expect from a smart and talented writer.
I have had the opportunity to start reading several books written in the past 2 years that had the current Prime Minister of Russia, Mr. Putin, as the "main fiction suspect," but I simply stopped because they were totally unrealistic and naïve for anyone who has minimum knowledge about global politics and current Russian "state of mind." This book is far from that category.
Suspense, high-level espionage, passion, love, smart tradecraft, and phenomenal knowledge of current USA-Russia diplomatic environment created this beautiful book. This is a thriller that reminded me of a mix between the best Robert Ludlum and John LeCarre novels. I am absolutely positive Mr. Matthews will continue this saga between the stunning Dominica "Sparrow" and CIA Nate, and whoever reads this book will be looking for the next book with Mr. Matthew’s name on it. He will not need any reviews for that one!
