Read ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ê Jason Matthews Summary Red Sparrow 107 Setzt der russische Geheimdienst die junge Agentin Dominika Egorowa auf Nash an Dominika ist ein „Red Sparrow“ ausgebildet zur verführerischen und tödlichen Falle Ein gefährliches Doppelspiel zwischen den Fronten entbrennt. With all the hype this series has received I thought it best to try the first novel in the trilogy to see if it meets my expectations Jason Matthews has not disappointed with his knowledge of the topic and ability to transmit ideas onto the page Nathaniel Nate Nash has been working as a CIA operative to handle an important mole within the Russian Government No one seems to know who it could be or how much information the Americans have garnered but Russian President Putin is enraged and wants this person found Feeling some of the heat the CIA takes the opportunity to move Nash out of the region and resettles him in Helsinki Meanwhile the reader learns all about Dominika Egorova whose past as a ballerina ended with a freak accident Pulled into the Russian Intelligence sphere by an uncle who works as a senior official within the SVR the KGB s modern day cousin Egorova is targeted for a high stakes game to retrieve the needed information from Nash Sent to a Sparrow School Egorova is turned into a seductress where sexpionage is the name of the game Her skills will be useful if she can lure the mole information from Nash while focussing her attention on his weaknesses After crafting a chance encounter within the Finnish borders Egorova begins laying her honey trap but Nash is not taking the bait at least not in the way she suspects he should Instead Nash sees a potential to turn Egorova to the Americans and have her feed additional information to the CIA Tensions build and Egorova makes a decision she feels will benefit her in the long run but sours the relationship with her SVR handlers Forced back to Russia Egorova is presumed handled in some dank prison while Nash returns stateside with some valuable information there is a Russian mole within the American intelligence community that could compromise everything The race is on to find this mole before too much can be handed over to the Russians while also continuing to protect their own information pipeline Egorova has reported some of her news to SVR officials and seeks another chance to finish the work she s started With two moles and significant blowback to come the American and Russian Intelligence communities are fighting to gain the upper hand in this post Cold War world Two agents doing what they do best may end up shaping the final outcome of this explosive game of espionage Who is playing for whom that s anyone s guess Matthews shows how his past as a CIA official can help shape this gripping thriller that opens every conceivable door for the reader to push onwards A trilogy that is sure to impress many especially those who love a traditional novel of spy games Highly recommended to those with the patience and interest in deep rooted spy novels a la John Le Carr With this book now a major motion picture and the final novel recently released I have heard much about it as it appears all over Goodreads I thought it high time to take a look to see if it might be for me While the beginning was a little dense I had to remind myself that I am not one who normally reads well crafted spy novels which seek to forego the superficial banter and develop over time enriching the reading experience As I pushed onwards I found myself drawn to both Nate Nash and Dominika Egorova two players from different spheres whose dedication to the cause cannot be discounted Matthews does well to create elaborate and intriguing backstories for these two particularly Dominika s synesthesia as well as meshing them together in a dance that can only have significant conseuences I found myself very interested in the training undertaken by Egorova sure that this sort of Sparrow School is common than it might seem While many readers may be familiar with the idea of a honeypot mission Matthews pushes this out of the sweaty sheets and pillow talk turning the entire undertaking into a slow and methodical game of chess with two countries staring one another down unsure how much they know of the other s game plan Additionally the creation and development of the two moles keeps the reader hooked as they watch both individuals undertake their respective positions and extract the needed information to pass along Who will be caught and at what price The story is fabulous and develops slowly but never loses the momentum through a strong narrative and believable dialogue Matthews has done well to personalise the story with insider bits that promote a story that rests on a foundation of fact or does it The reader need not feel they are being spoon fed yet another America vs Russia novel of high stakes and back alley stabbing but rather a methodical understanding of the world of espionage with results dependent on the risks undertaken With the uncanny use of recipes embedded at the end of each chapter usually related to the food mentioned in the earlier narrative Matthews shows that he has a lighter side and can lure the reader in through their stomachs as well as minds I cannot wait to sink my teeth into the next novel hoping that the development is as exciting as what Matthews developed here I can see why there was so much hype Matthews knows his stuff and has the literary awards to show for itKudos Mr Matthews for a stellar debut novel This series could really have some serious potential to win over many who have not yet developed a love for high caliber spy novelsLovehate the review An ever growing collection of others appears at Book for All Seasons a different sort of Book Challenge

While I was reading this I kept going back to my Goodreads account and looking at the reviews perplexed but coaxed to keep reading I finally came to the conclusion that this is one of those books that appealed to most but not to me Dominika is a training to be a Red Sparrow a Russian female seductress agent and she also has the gift of synthesia or seeing colors in an aura around people that reflects their spirit a mood ring sort of thing Promising Where the author lost me is the sexual content which I found ridiculous I am not a prude I even enjoy a titillating sex scene of many variations Dominika masturbates with her grandmother s amber hairbrush and then there is a recipe for Beet Soup Dominika has a lesbian sex encounter at Sparrow School and here s a recipe for a Cuban Sandwich from the airport Dominika has a fake orgasm worth of When Harry Met Sally and we can make crepes I may have some of the recipes out of seuel but you get the idea Each chapter is followed by a recipe And the women have sex like blow up dolls I even went back to the reviews thinking oh I bet women readers did not go for this but they did I could find no glaring trends to support my own conclusions Just my own lonely opinion that this is ridiculous from my own female point of view So I say skip it and read a Ludlum or Le Carre There you will find sex and substanceA copy of this was provided by the publisher

Maybe we Americans were just a little bit hasty when we said that we won the Cold War Cause it s seeming and like that we were really just leading at halftime Modern Russia with Vladimer Putin running the show is essentially the Soviet Union with a better public relations department and the old spy games between their Foreign Intelligence Service and the American Central Intelligence Agency are back with a vengeance Young and ambitious CIA officer Nate Nash is the Moscow handler of a highly placed Russian code named MARBLE When a planned meeting goes sideways Nash manages to save his asset but he blows his own cover so badly in the process that he s exiled to Helsinki where he sulks about the setback his career has suffered Russian intelligence knows it has a leak and is desperate to find it so they send junior agent Dominika Egorova to see if she can pry loose the name of the mole from NashDominika was a talented ballerina as well as a true believer in the new Russia She is also secretly a synesthete who sees sound as colors as well as auras around people that clue her into their mental state When her dancing career was derailed she is sucked into the spy business by her uncle who promises her position but really sees her as just a beautiful woman that he can whore out for his own purposes Despite how her uncle uses her and the bureaucracy that thinks she only has value on her back Dominika manages to earn a place in the intelligence service with her brains and will as she nurses hidden grudges at the way the system has treated her After Nate and Dominika meet a delicate dance of manipulation begins but who is recruiting whoI m a big fan of FX s The Americans as well as currently being surrounded by a bunch of Russian consultants at the office I m convinced they must be secret agents running honeypot operations because there s just no way that many good looking people are a representative sample of the Russian population Or I m just jealous that they re making us American office drones look like jeans wearing mole people by comparison Seriously if the Cold War is really kicking off again I m putting my money on themThe point is that I was in the mood for a good spy vs spy novel and this one delivered It won the 2014 Edgar Award for best first novel and the author Jason Matthews is reportedly a former CIA officer who had over 30 years of service The book is filled with the kind of details about spy operations that just feel authentic but it never devolves into a Tom Clancy style recitation of hardware and proper procedures because it s got plenty of human drama as wellDominika is the engine that runs the rest of the book She s an intriguing character because of the anger and frustration she feels as someone who just wants to be permitted to do her job but is constantly used and humiliated by brutal men of limited imagination The only false note to her is that it feels like Matthews wrote her synesthesia as giving her almost telepathic abilities when it comes to reading people Why couldn t she just be smart and institutive instead of using a neurological disorder as a way of making her special It s becoming an overused fictional trope these days Another minor nitpick is that Matthews uses a gimmick of having the characters constantly eating or preparing food and then putting the recipe for what they had at the end of a chapter This was kind of a neat touch at first but after a while it felt like he was really straining to find new dishes to shoehorn into the action Also This spoiler does not give away the ending but does involve a major character introduced halfway through the book view spoiler I initially enjoyed the female American senator character who sells secrets to the Russians She s a complete narcissist who is so self involved and annoyed at any potential inconveniences that she refuses to take the most basic security precautions This seemed like the kind of motivation you might find in a traitor in the age of Facebook However after a while with her relentlessly bashing the US intelligence agencies at every opportunity it left me wondering if Matthews suffered at the hands of some politicians during his career and was getting a bit of fictional revenge by portraying such a character as a villain completely devoid of conscience What started as interesting became an over the top cartoon hide spoiler
