Summary Note From the best-selling, Edgar Award-winning author of the "terrifically good" (The New York Times) Red Sparrow, a compulsively readable new novel about star-crossed Russian agent Dominika Egorova and CIA's Nate Nash. 'Enthralling. That Matthews, who served in the C.I.A. for 33 years, knows the world of espionage and its darkest corners is never in doubt. Palace of Treason shimmers with authenticity' New York Times *** Captain Dominika Egorova of the Russian Intelligence Service has returned from the West to Moscow. She despises the men she serves, the oligarchs, and crooks, and thugs of Putin's Russia. What no one knows is that Dominika is working for the CIA as Washington's most sensitive penetration of the Kremlin. As she expertly dodges exposure, Dominika deals with a murderously psychotic boss; faces assassination attempt and counter-intelligence ambushes, and must rescue a compromised agent and somehow spirit him out of Russia from under the noses of her pursuers. Complicating it all is Dominika's relationship with her CIA handler, Nate Nash. And when a mole in Moscow finds her name on a classified list of sources, it is a virtual death sentence ... With the brilliant Palace of Treason, CIA veteran Jason Matthews confirms his position as the most exciting spy writer alive. This is as good as it gets. *** ACCLAIM FOR JASON MATTHEWS 'The world of a spy is unique and claustrophobic, but this bold tale captures its every nuance with expert precision. A tantalizing premise, and a heroine who's an alpha female, forge a solid piece of entertainment that does not disappoint' - Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Patriot Threat 'A sequel that's every bit as good as his d?ut . . . Authentic trade craft, a complex plot that steadily builds tension, and credible heroes and villains on both sides make this a stand out' - Publishers Weekly 'Jason is the first senior former CIA officer to become a successful thriller writer. The CIA considered Palace of Treason so realistic that it demanded Jason excise a quarter of it and jettison the ending. . . Egorova could well turn out to be the greatest ever female character in spy fiction' - The Sunday Times Magazine.
