    Another excellent thriller to conclude this trilogy. I think the first and third books were best, but I powered through all three. The author is a legit former spy, so this series felt very realistic from the spy side, and then wove a nice love story in too. And the descriptions of Put...

    I really enjoyed this trilogy. Matthews does a good job of weaving romance with all the trappings of a spy novel: heart-breaking treachery, double-crossings, lots of suspense, plus fun gadgets and cutting-edge technology. I powered through all three books and would probably read more o...

    Great beginning, recalling Sparrow Dominika Egorova bedding a female U.S. naval officer, who is blackmailed into becoming a Russian spy. Each of them enjoy meteoric career ascensions, with the naval officer shortlisted to become CIA director, and Dominika, head of the SVR. The tension ...

    Fantastic, surprising ending to the Red Sparrow trilogy. Early on I was worried that Matthews was stretched too thin, but as the book progressed, I found the numerous plot lines to be wonderfully executed. I loved that actions had consequences, that just because someone's a good guy it...

    Read the review of the Red Sparrow Trilogy at my blog The Kremlin's Candidate is an excellent conclusion to the Red Sparrow Trilogy. It has a great story, intricate plotting and an ending that will stay with you long after the book is over. Without getting too much into spoile...

    What, What, WTF just happened? It ended, that's what, suddenly and abruptly. No spoilers here, just a quick recap of the final installment of the trilogy. "The next CIA director could well be U.S. admiral Audrey Rowland, a mole working for the Russians, in bestseller Matthews?s stell...

    Retired CIA officer Jason Matthews wraps up his Red Sparrow trilogy centered around Russian counterintelligence agent Dominika Egorova. The first two books received high critical praise and comparisons to le Carre; the plot is plausible, the characters compelling. Unfortunately, the se...

    A fitting end to the trilogy, but it turns out that I don't really want to hear as many grody details about Putin as this novel had to offer. Now I'm curious to see the movie of Red Sparrow as well! ...

    Definitely a great CIA/FSB thriller. You can certainly tell it was written by a former CIA Operations officer. Lots of twists and turns. ...

    There seemed to be a good deal of superfluous material that slowed or bogged down this read. The story had an engaging plot and I enjoyed reading about the internal workings of US and Russian counter intelligence agencies. ...

    In this, the final novel in a high-impact trilogy, Jason Matthews seeks to take the story in a new and interesting direction, while tying up some loose ends and leaving others to dangle without resolution. Dominika Egorova remains a highly-placed mole in the Russian Government, having ...

    In my opinion, a five-star series with a one-star conclusion. I absolutely hated the ending - some may love it, some may say it's more realistic as to what really happens in the world of the CIA. That's probably true, but still, I hated the way it ended. The first two books I put up th...

    The Kremlin?s Candidate concludes the fabulous Red Sparrow spy trilogy. I have spent the last week in the company of Nate and Dominika, slowly falling in love with this complex and global tale of espionage. Red Sparrow and Palace of Treason must be read before The Kremlin?s Candida...

    Jason Matthews?s RED SPARROW set the bar extremely high in creating a unique approach to the espionage thriller. He followed that with PALACE OF TREASON which met the bar and may have raised it. Matthews, a retired officer of the CIA?s Operations Directorate who specialized in recr...

    The Kremlin?s Candidate is the final installment in The Red Sparrow Trilogy- how I am going to miss these richly drawn, multi-dimensional characters. I savored every word! This trilogy depicts 21st century spy craft in all its intrigue, dangers, and suspense. All the scenarios ring t...

    A brief synopsis of this trilogy: Everyone: "No, Dominika!" Dominika: "Yes, Dominika!" Everyone: "Okay, Dominika." In the spirit of the books, I'm just gonna go balls-to-wall right off the bat with this review (heh-heh!). Pros: Jason Matthews is ex-CIA, and I honestly felt ...

    I"M ANGRY! I even read the reviews before I started this last book, there were no warnings. I would have been perfectly happy to stop at the second book. There was no warning with the direction that this book was going to go. Not cool. ...

    The Kremlin's Candidate, which is the last of a trilogy by Jason Matthews, continues the story of the contest to outdo one another by the CIA and the Russian successors to the Soviet KGB. Since Matthews goes to great lengths to fill in the back story one needn't read all three books BU...

    'The Kremlin's Candidate', the 3rd in the Red Sparrow series by Jason Matthews, is yet another intricately crafted thriller with strong writing, good dialogue, and great 'tradecraft'. I'm sad to see this series end but getting there has been very satisfying. The plot involves a bit...

    I put this book down with great regret and - without giving away any spoilers - not a few tears as well. This is the final part of the great trilogy of novels relating the relationship between Nate (or Neyt), Nash and Colonel Dominika Egorova, the FSB Counter Intelligence chief who ...

    Why only three stars I anxiously awaited the final book of this trilogy only to discover that the author has changed his style of writing. I gave the first two books five stars each because they beautifully brought the reader along for the ride with clarity. The verbiage in this las...

    Who better to write a superb spy versus spy novel than Matthews who has 33 years of experience working for the CIA Operations Directorate. This is the third installment in the Red Sparrow series and it does not disappoint. His descriptions of surveillance-detection runs have the ring o...

    Not out with a bang, but with a whimper.... After two thrilling parts of the trilogy, the third part is a vast disappointment. It's written as if Matthews had a thesaurus for breakfast each morning, and the plot develops in an alarmingly predictable way. And then, in just a few pages, ...

    Boy this book pissed me off at so many levels!! I guess I've yet to encounter a book/trilogy that profoundly disappointed me as much as this. Based on the current 'Hollywood' "Red Sparrow' movie in theaters, the book continues the saga between Dominika a Russian operative and Nate...
