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!

bestselling author and veteran CIA officer Jason Matthews comes the electrifying modern spy thriller Red Sparrow.
In contemporary Russia, state intelligence officer Dominika Egorova has been drafted to become a "Sparrow"--a spy trained in the art of seduction to elicit information from their marks. She's been assigned to Nathaniel Nash, a CIA officer who handles the organization's most sensitive penetration of Russian intelligence. The two young intelligence officers, trained in their respective spy schools, collide in a charged atmosphere of tradecraft, deception and, inevitably, a forbidden spiral of carnal attraction that threatens their careers and the security of America's valuable mole in Moscow.
For fans of John le Carr and Ian Fleming and featuring "high-level espionage, pulse-pounding danger, sex, double agents, and double crosses" (Nelson DeMille), Red Sparrow
is a timely and electrifying thriller that is impossible to put down.
