Críticas:

"Not since the good old days ofthe Cold War has a classic spy thriller like RED SPARROW come along. JasonMatthews is not making it up; he has lived this life and this story, and itshows on every page. High-level espionage, pulse-pounding danger, sex, doubleagents and double crosses. What more can any reader want?"--Nelson DeMille

"All the tradecraft and cat-and-mouse tension ofa classic spy thriller-- a terrific read."

--Joseph Kanon "author of Instanbul "

"Matthews's exceptional first novel will please fans of classic spy fiction...The author's 33-year career in the CIA allows him to showcase all the tradecraft and authenticity that readers in this genre demand...[a] complex, high-stakes plot."

"Matthews' first novel, a globe-trotting spy thriller, features enough action to satisfy even the most demanding of adrenaline junkies...The author's CIA background and the smart dialogue make this an entertaining tale for spy-novel enthusiasts."

"The author, a veteran CIA field agent, liberally salts his thriller with realistic tradecraft, horrific villainy, and stunning plot twists as the opponents vie for control...An intense descent into a vortex of carnal passion, career brutality, and smart tradecraft, this thriller evokes the great Cold War era of espionage...Readers of bloodthirsty spy and suspense will welcome this debut from a writer who supersizes his spies."

"I read till 11 and woke up at 5 am to finish this book in three days. If it doesn't supplant "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" as the next mammoth read, and if it doesn't take its place alongside le Carre's "The Spy Who Came in from the Cold", the love of literature and jaw-dropping thrills really is dead. When I finished the book the day was just dawning, as it always is in this novel, only in the novel the fated characters, sopping with melancholy, romance, venom, and belly-aching humor (this book can be laugh out loud funny), are usually eating well and wondering when it'll be lights out for them. Jason Matthews has "reported" this book for 30 years, working it all out in the "real world," and one wonders who he is, mostly: the young, "naive" Nate Nash; the knock-out, petulant heroine Dominika, whom Quentin Tarantino and Doctor Zhivago both might've loved; or the Gus Grissom-like Gable, who dispenses life-lessons to the young Nate--a muscled hen clucking and stirring a bubbling sauce over a stove. There is not a false note in the amazing ventriloquisms that are the conjurer's art we call literature. There are sentences as exciting to read as Eliot's "The Wasteland" (cf. the description of a moist, pale toadie scuttling along a hall--spooky, this is an image I cannot get rid of); or the majestic, floor-board creaking opening of Cormac McCarthy's "All The Pretty Horses". The granular sweep of the authorial vision is a telescope still warm from Tolstoy's hands. There's a scene in here better by ten than Bogart looking down at Ingrid. I learned more about the former Soviets and the new Russians, and our U.S. of A., than I ever gleaned from the hardest working journalists writing today. Halfway through, I was afraid Putin would find out I was reading "Red Sparrow" and have me arrested. I have not read a more exciting, gripping novel in a long time."--Doug Stanton "author of Horse Soldiers "

"Not since the good old days of the Cold War has a classic spy thriller like RED SPARROW come along. Jason Matthews is not making it up; he has lived this life and this story, and it shows on every page. High-level espionage, pulse-pounding danger, sex, double agents and double crosses. What more can any reader want?"--Nelson DeMille

Veteran CIA operative-turned-novelist Matthews keeps the trouble popping in Red Sparrow, but relentless drama is just one of the high points of this sublime and sophisticated debut Red Sparrow isn t just a fast-paced thriller it s a first-rate novel as noteworthy for its superior style as for its gripping depiction of a secretive world. While many former CIA agents and MI6 operatives have turned to writing fiction in retirement, Matthews joins a select few who seem as strong at their second careers as at their first. --Art Taylor "The Washington Post ""

"Jason Matthews, who became an authority on the Kremlin during his 33 years as a CIA operations officer, has written an espionage novel, Red Sparrow, in which Putin makes a cameo -- read it and you too may conclude that no one on the planet knows the Russian president better. You too may also conclude that Red Sparrow is the best espionage novel you've ever read."--Keith Thomson "Huffington Post "

A great and dangerous spy-game is being played today between Russian intelligence and the CIA. Very few people know about it, including many of our politicians in Washington. But Jason Matthews does, and his thrilling Red Sparrow takes us deep inside this treacherous world. He s an insider s insider. He knows the secrets. And he is also a masterful story-teller. I loved this book and could not put it down. Neither will you. --Vince Flynn"

Reseña del editor:

Soon to be a major motion picture starring Jennifer Lawrence and Joel Edgerton!

“A great and dangerous spy-game is being played today between Russian intelligence and the CIA. Very few people know about it, but Jason Matthews does, and his thrilling Red Sparrow takes us deep inside this treacherous world. He’s an insider’s insider. And he is also a masterful storyteller. I loved this book and could not put it down. Neither will you.” —Vince Flynn

In the grand spy-tale tradition of John le Carré...comes this shocking thriller written with insider detail known only to a veteran CIA officer.

In present-day Russia, ruled by blue-eyed, unblinking President Vladimir Putin, Russian intelligence officer Dominika Egorova struggles to survive in the post-Soviet intelligence jungle. Ordered against her will to become a “Sparrow,” a trained seductress, Dominika is assigned to operate against Nathaniel Nash, a young CIA officer who handles the Agency’s most important Russian mole.

As the action careens between Russia, Finland, Greece, Italy, and the United States, Dominika and Nate soon collide in a duel of wills, tradecraft, and—inevitably—forbidden passion that threatens not just their lives but those of others as well. As secret allegiances are made and broken, Dominika and Nate’s game reaches a deadly crossroads. Soon one of them begins a dangerous double existence in a life-and-death operation that consumes intelligence agencies from Moscow to Washington, DC.

Page by page, veteran CIA officer Jason Matthews’s Red Sparrow delights, terrifies and fascinates, all while delivering an unforgettable cast, from a sadistic Spetsnaz “mechanic” who carries out Putin’s murderous schemes to the weary CIA Station Chief who resists Washington “cake-eaters”. Packed with insider detail, this novel brims with Matthews’s life experience of espionage, counterintelligence, spy recruitment, and cyber-warfare. Brilliantly composed, Red Sparrow is a masterful spy tale. Authentic, tense, and entertaining, this novel introduces Jason Matthews as a major new American talent.
