“Matthews' debut, Red Sparrow, was only the first 'date' for Russian agent Dominika Egorova and the CIA's Nate Nash. Now, in Palace of Treason, the spies and lovers find themselves on opposite sides of an even more dangerous game. Tight, authentic tradecraft was the hallmark of Matthews' former career in the CIA and it shows in this twisty race to unravel moles in both America and in Putin's Russia. Dominika is getting closer to Putin himself - close enough to catch his eye! - while Nate races to stop a man hell-bent on revenge on everyone. Spy versus spy, sex, trained assassins - here is everything you want in a summer read!-”

The thrilling sequel to Red Sparrow
--CIA insider Jason Matthews's compulsively readable New York Times
bestseller and Edgar Award winner--featuring Russian spy Dominika Egorova and CIA agent Nate Nash "shimmers with authenticity. The villains are richly drawn...the scenes of them on the job are beyond chilling" (The New York Times Book Review
Captain Dominika Egorova of the Russian Intelligence Service despises the oligarchs, crooks, and thugs of Putin's Russia--but what no one knows is that she is also working for the CIA. Her "sparrow" training in the art of sexual espionage further complicates the mortal risks she must take, as does her love for her handler Nate Nash--a shared lust that is as dangerous as treason.
As Dominika expertly dodges exposure, she deals with a murderously psychotic boss, survives an Iranian assassination attempt and attempts to rescue an arrested double agent--and thwart Putin's threatening flirtations. A grand, wildly entertaining ride through the steel-trap mind of a CIA insider, Palace of Treason
is a story "as suspenseful and cinematic as the best spy movies" (The Philadelphia Inquirer
)--one that feels fresh and so possible, in fact, that it's doubtful this novel can ever be published in Russia.
