Reviews

PRAISE FOR THE KREMLIN'S CANDIDATE


"Delivers a wallop on all fronts, from adrenaline-charged action to dark political intrigue to gripping emotional stakes....Matthews stuffs his always hungry characters with onions, garlic, and personalities that make the last of this trilogy both satisfying and bittersweet. Readers will finish the book, but their memories of Matthews' brilliant and fearless heroine will linger well past the final page." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"Jason Matthews's finale to the Red Sparrow Trilogy is both timely and timeless; an espionage tale that takes the reader behind and beyond the headlines of Russia's assault on America. If anyone doubts that we are in the midst of Cold War II, The Kremlin's Candidate will erase those doubts, page by eye-opening page. Matthews's writing is elegant and self-assured, and we know we are in the capable hands of a man who is writing about what he knows and who he knows. Twenty-first-century spy novels don't get any better than this." --Nelson DeMille, bestselling author of The Cuban Affair
"Matthews spins a mighty operational web replete with exacting tradecraft and horrific violence. His descriptive precision is breathtaking; the sparring between his vividly realized characters is devilishly clever. With nail-biting suspense, scorching eroticism, dark wit, lashing contempt for politicians dismissive of intelligence work, and fury over Russia's disinformation campaigns, this is a riveting and knowing dramatization of today's clandestine geopolitical conflicts." --Booklist

"A stellar conclusion...[The Kremlin's Candidate] races to a heart-pounding and unexpected resolution." --Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Jason Matthews has found a formula that is making him one of America's most readable spy novelists: To animate the James Bond staples of seduction and violence, he has added touches of the meticulous tradecraft he learned in his 33 years as a CIA operations officer. The sex scenes in his books are good, but the surveillance-detection runs are sublime. The Kremlin's Candidate doesn't disappoint." --David Ignatius, Washington Post Book World
"Jason Matthews steers his popular Red Sparrow trilogy to an exciting conclusion. This one's timely, too, exploring how Russian espionage can place agents in positions of power." --Entertainment Weekly
PRAISE FOR THE FIRST TWO BOOKS OF THE RED SPARROW TRILOGY
"There hasn't been a first-rate American spy novelist who claims to have worked as an intelligence officer before turning his hand at fiction. Until now, that is. . . . Matthews offers the reader a primer in twenty-first-century spying. His former foes in Moscow will be choking on their blinis when they read how much has been revealed about their tradecraft. . . . Terrifically good." --The New York Times Book Review
"A smart, intriguing tale rooted in his own experience . . . Fans of the genre's masters including John le Carre and Ian Fleming will happily embrace Matthews's central spy." --USA Today
"As suspenseful and cinematic as the best spy movies around. Matthews knows his tradecraft, and he knows his writing craft, too." --The Philadelphia Inquirer
"All the tradecraft and cat-and-mouse tension of a classic spy thriller--a terrific read." --Joseph Kanon, author of Istanbul Passage
