Palace of Treason

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

'Taut, fast-paced and authentic. A great American spy novel' - Charles Cumming

'As authentic a spy novel as you are ever apt to read, rendered in exciting prose by a master who helped craft the rules by which spying is conducted. A ten-cloak, ten-dagger read' - Washington Times

'There is much to relish, from its revival of the sexy spy (this time female) to its mischievous portrayal of Putin' John Dugdale, The Sunday Times

'The best espionage novel you've ever read' - Huffington Post

'Dominika Egorova, of the Russian Intelligence Service, is one of the most complex and compelling heroines to grace the espionage genre ... Palace of Treason is 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 ... Whether in Vienna, Moscow or Washington, Matthews's scene-setting is superb, and he has a fine eye for telling details ... Palace of Treason shimmers with authenticity' - New York Times

'Matthews is the insider's insider. He knows the secrets. And he is also a master storyteller' - Vince Flynn

'Sublime and sophisticated ... a fast-paced thriller ... as noteworthy for its superior style as for its gripping depiction of a secretive world' - Washington Post

'A primer in 21st-century spying... terrifically good' - New York Times Book Review

'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 début . . . 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

'The tough and talented Egorova is a brilliant creation - her adventures make for a dazzling thrill-filled journey across the globe. Matthews spent 30 years as a CIA agent so this is the real deal. Thrilling, absorbing and brilliantly descriptive ... you won't fail to be won over' - Sunday Mirror

Portrait
Jason Matthews is the real deal. As an Operations Officer in the CIA, his brief was simple: steal secrets from the opposition and protect his own. Over a thirty-three-year career, Matthews served in multiple overseas locations, specializing in denied-areas operations and national security. He conducted agent recruitment in key counter-proliferation regions, including the Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, East Asia, the Middle East and the Caribbean. As a retired chief in various CIA stations, there are few people on the planet better positioned to write about the thrilling world of espionage, intelligence and counter-terrorism.
