Review

A provocative and timely novel exploring the notion of Russian influence in the US's corridors of power (The Guardian)

Matthews beguilingly blends the fun and sexiness of Ian Fleming with the more procedural, information-rich approach of John le Carre and Frederick Forsyth (The Sunday Times)

The 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)

Matthews spins a mighty operational web replete with exacting tradecraft. 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... races to a heart-pounding and unexpected resolution. (Publishers Weekly)

Matthews beguilingly blends the fun and sexiness of Ian Fleming with the more procedural, information-rich approach of John le Carre and Frederick Forsyth (The Sunday Times)

Dominika Egorova, of the Russian Intelligence Service, is one of the most complex and compelling heroines to grace the espionage genre ... Matthews's scene-setting is superb, and he has a fine eye for telling details ... Palace of Treason shimmers with authenticity (New York Times)

Taut, fast-paced and authentic. A great American spy novel (Charles Cumming)

Sublime and sophisticated ... a fast-paced thriller ... as noteworthy for its superior style as for its gripping depiction of a secretive world (Washington Post)

A primer in 21st-century spying... terrifically good (New York Times Book Review)

Book Description

Is Moscow pulling the strings? Urgent, topical and shot through with insider knowledge, this is thriller writing on a grand scale.
