Publisher's Summary

Captain Dominika Egorova of the Russian Intelligence Service (SVR) has returned from the West to Moscow. She despises the men she serves, the oligarchs, 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 SVR and the Kremlin.
As she expertly dodges exposure, Dominika deals with a murderously psychotic boss; survives an Iranian assassination attempt; escapes a counterintelligence ambush; rescues an arrested agent and exfiltrates him out of Russia; and has a chilling midnight conversation in her nightgown with President Putin. Complicating these risks is the fact that Dominika is in love with her CIA handler, Nate Nash, and their lust is as dangerous as committing espionage in Moscow. And when a mole in the SVR finds Dominika’s name on a restricted list of sources, it is a virtual death sentence....

Greeat story BUT ...

l loved the story with its strands of plot around different characters. There was plenty of suspense as l felt there was no guarantee that the "good guys" would win nor all of their characters survive.

Far more realistic and credible than many books in its genre and highly recommended with ONE EXCEPTION.

I found the narratir's attempt to change her voice to represent different characters not just bad but appalling. For the early stages of the book l found it a big turnoff which made me angry as in "how the hell did she get this job?"

But the compelling storyline kept me there and while her character portrayal never improved l generally became desensitized to it.

Please!!!!!!!!!!!! Leave out the recipes!

It would have been five stars all round; but the recipes became one of the most annoying parts of a book that I have ever experienced, so much so that I had to knock of a star for each category.

Hang on, book two and a female narrator!

Bit of a shock to the system after the first book is narrated very well by a man. Don't get me wrong she is brilliant too, but took a little while to get used to the different pronunciations of familiar names - jarred a litte for a while.
Didn't spoil another excellent book, and to be honest I would happily listen to either narrator again.

Bad narrator and poor writing

Why change the narrator in a series? First book was ok and I hoped this would be better but no such luck! I can't understand the 5 star reviews, if you're looking for a book about the CIA 'The Company' by Robert Littell is a much better choice.

This Narrator is awful

I haven’t listened to enough of this story to tell you if it lives up to Red Sparrow. Though I am a few chapters in and the context is enjoyable so far. The narrator however is quite simply awful - I cannot listen to anymore of her. I strongly dislike the accents; she maked Forsyth & Gable sound like uneducated, old school rednecks and Dominika arrogant and less complex. She mispronounces a lot of the names, including Dominika’s which is irritating to say the least. It is for these reasons I could only give the rating I did, it is unlistenable. It is disappointing they didn’t keep the same narrator as red sparrow.

Great book crap narration

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Loved the book but what’s her name is bloody awful, unsympathetic rendition unlike Red Sparrow

What did you like best about this story?

Plot brilliant

Would you be willing to try another one of Jennifer Vuletic’s performances?

Absolutely not she is shit

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Palace of Treason?

None

Any additional comments?

Re release with original narrator from RedSparrow - this is my first negative, what a pity such a great book such a shit reading
