Now a major motion picture starring Jennifer Lawrence and Joel Edgerton!
From the New York Times 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 siphon out 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 Carré 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.

One of the most intriguing post Cold War spy books I've ever read. The characters are memorable. I can't wait for the sequel which no doubt is coming!!
Hard to put down.
Rarely do you get to read a spy novel that lets you know the author has walked the walk - as well as this one does. And while His prose is unlikely ever to be confused with that of Furst or Le Carre, he walks the streets of the same neighborhood. What this compelling read lacks in literary polish, it more than makes up for in believability and character.
