The Kremlin's Candidate
The Kremlin's Candidate: A Novel | Jason Matthews
In the final, thrilling installment of the Red Sparrow Trilogy, Russian counterintelligence chief Dominika Egorova and her lover, CIA agent Nate Nash, must find a Russian agent about to be appointed to a very high office in the US government. With a plot ripped from tomorrows headlines, Jason Matthewss high-powered, seductive third novel not only continues the dangerous entanglements of Dominika and Nate but reveals with chilling authenticity how Russian espionage can place agents in the most sensitive positions of power. The novel opens with Russian president Vladimir Putin planning the covert assassination of a high-ranking US official with the intention of replacing him with a mole whom Russian intelligence has cultivated for more than fifteen years. Catching wind of this plot, Dominika, Nate, and their CIA colleagues must unmask the traitor before he or she is able to reveal that Dominika has been spying for years on behalf of the CIA. Any leak, any misstep, will expose her as a CIA asset and result in a one-way trip to a Moscow execution cellar. Along the way, Matthews, a thirty-three-year veteran of the CIA and winner of the Edgar Award for Best First Novel, sets vivid, unforgettable scenes in Moscow; Washington, DC; Hong Kong; New York; the Sudan; and Turkey, and introduces two cold-blooded killers: Iosip Blokhin, a brilliant Spetsnaz military officer, and Grace Gao, ravishing Chinese spy, master of Kundalini yoga, and Beijing-trained seductress. Ultimately, the lines of danger converge on the spectacular billion-dollar presidential palace on the Black Sea during a power weekend with Putins inner circle. Does Nate sacrifice himself to save Dominika? Does she forfeit herself to protect Nate? Do they go down together? This dazzling finale to Jason Matthewss New York Times bestselling Red Sparrow Trilogy, called a primer in twenty-first-century spying...terrifically good (The New York Times Book Review), confirms the critical acclaim he received for the first two novels, praise that compared Matthews to John le Carr and Ian Fleming. The Kremlins Candidate will be published just before the 2018 release of Red Sparrow, a major motion picture starring Jennifer Lawrence, produced by 20th Century Fox.

The third and final book in the Red Sparrow series does not disappoint. More intrigue & heart pounding espionage action until the final page. This one moved a little slower through the middle, but the toward the end I was racing to the finish. A bit of a warning: If explicit violence, gore, and/or sex are on your list to avoid, then this series isn‘t for you. I think these books will stay with me for a bit. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

My evening. This book disappears from my Kindle and gets returned to the library tomorrow. 😳 I‘m 71% through and my Bookly app says I‘ve got 4 hours left until I finish. I haven‘t had much availability to read these past two weeks. Time to make up for lost time!

Hestapleton Put that sucker on airplane mode!! It can‘t disappear without WiFi! 9mo
Elizabeth2 @Hestapleton I had no idea! What a great tip! Thank you!! 9mo
Elizabeth2 @Hestapleton thanks again for the tip. It worked. I finished, turned on my WiFi so Goodreads would update and received a message that the book had expired! 9mo
Hestapleton @Elizabeth2 no problem! I‘m glad you got some extra time! This is my life saver when I‘m running out of time. The downside is you can‘t download any new holds, but it‘s an amazing shortcut! 9mo

In this finale to The Red Sparrow trilogy, Jason Matthews closes the book on Nate and Dominika. It‘s a fitting end to a great saga. A Russian mole is on the short list to become the next CIA director. Should that happen Dominika‘s life expectancy can be measured in hours. There are several subplots running simultaneously and more than a few surprises occur along the way. I don‘t think it‘s the strongest of the three, but it‘s still a solid effort.

Sadly the end, the finale of the Red Sparrow trilogy. Certainly not the ending I was expecting, I‘m in a bit of shock. Hoping and 🙏🏽ing that Jason Matthews keeps writing!
