The further dangerous intrigues of Russian spy Dominika Egorova and CIA agent Nate Nash, heroine and hero of the bestselling, Edgar Award—winning Red Sparrow by Jason Mat-thews, the veteran CIA operative hailed as an "insider's insider" whose electric prose and serpentine plots are worthy of comparison with the legendary John le Carre
The publication of Red Sparrow announced Jason Matthews as a major new talent, and reviewers and readers ended their lavish praise of his spellbinding first novel with an urgent wish for another with the same main characters. Just as brilliantly paced and ingeniously told, Palace of "Treason not only brings back Captain Dominika Egorova of the Russian Intelligence Service (SVR) and CIA agent Nate Nash but also sets an unforgettably sadistic Russian intelligence officer and a new mole in the CIA after them. Dominika despises the men she serves, the oli-garchs and crooks and thugs of Putin's Russia.
What no one knows is that she is working for the CIA as Washington's most sensitive penetration of the SVR and the Kremlin. Her "sparrow" training in the art of "sexpionage" further complicates the mortal risks she must take, as does the fact that she is in love with Nate Nash—a lust that is as dangerous to both of them as committing treason in Moscow. Along the way, Dominika deals with a murder-ously psychotic boss, survives an Iranian assassination ambush, and tries to exfiltrate an arrested double agent.
When Russian president Vladimir Putin casts his interested, ice-blue eyes in her direction, the threat only increases. Putin has dominated the news from Russia lately. In Palace of Treason, he leaps from the page fully formed—complex, conniving, and ominously fasci-nated with Dominika. His presence, as well as Matthews's ability to draw on his real-world CIA experience, again makes for a story that feels fresh and all too possible—so possible, in fact, that it's doubtful this novel can ever be published in Russia. Palace of Treason is a grand, wildly entertaining tour through the steel-trap mind of Jason Matthews, exciting from the first sentence to the very last.
