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 tomorrow’s headlines, Jason Matthews’s 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 Putin’s 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 Matthews’s 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 Carré and Ian Fleming. The Kremlin’s Candidate will be published just before the 2018 release of Red Sparrow, a major motion picture starring Jennifer Lawrence, produced by 20th Century Fox.

    Fast moving. Kept the reader’s interest, thus, had a hard time putting the book down. Recommend reading the first two novel prior to this book. When will his next book or trilogy become available.
  • Great book but...

    By ericandi
    SPOILER ALERT; Once again a fantastic book but the horribly tragic ending was far too much to bear. There was no need end the book like that. I would have given it 5 stars if it weren’t for the terrible ending.

    By Tpr2
    The book is a good read the only problem that I have with it is that the author need to improve in detailing when he describes the love making scene. I had a hard time figuring out what he was talking about. Either he wanted to keep the book G-rated or that he knows nothing about having sex .
  • Poor customer service

    Bravo to the author for selling the movie rights to Red Sparrow, but I pre-ordered The Kremlin Candidate when it was advertised as available for iBooks at the end of November 2017. Having to wait another four months for a book I paid for in March 2017 simply to accommodate the film’s marketing campaign is irritating to say the least. I had hoped to add the book to a reading list for a spring course, but that seems out of the question now.
