Publisher's Summary

Russian counterintelligence chief Colonel Dominika Egorova has been a recruited asset of the CIA, stealing Kremlin secrets for her CIA handler, Nate Nash, for over seven years. In the dazzling finale to the Red Sparrow Trilogy - which will be published right before the release of Red Sparrow, a major motion picture starring Jennifer Lawrence and Joel Edgerton - their forbidden and tumultuous love affair continues, mortally dangerous for them both but irresistible.
In Washington, a newly installed US administration is selecting its cabinet members. Dominika hears a whisper of a closely held Kremlin operation to place a mole inside a high intelligence position. But it's worse than that: One of the three candidates under consideration has been a paid Russian spy for a decade, selling precious US secrets. If the Kremlin's candidate for the position is confirmed, the Russians will have access to all the names of assets spying for CIA in Moscow, including Dominika's. But which of the three individuals is the mole?
Dominika's report triggers a desperate mole hunt before she's exposed and arrested. Resisting all suggestions to defect and save herself, Dominika recklessly immerses herself in the palace intrigues of the Kremlin, searching for the mole's name, and stealing as many of President Putin's secrets for her CIA handlers before her time runs out - even as Putin's dangerous interest in her grows. The treasure trove of her intelligence reporting sends Nate Nash and colleagues on desperate missions to Sevastopol, Istanbul, Khartoum, and Hong Kong.
With a plot ripped from tomorrow's headlines, The Kremlin's Candidate is a riveting story if you've never listened to Jason Matthews and a thrilling conclusion to the trilogy begun with Red Sparrow and Palace of Treason, which The New York Times Book Review called "a primer in 21st-century spying...terrifically good".

Remarkable Story Telling, Bravo!

This is third book in the Red Sparrow series, yet it easily stands out on its own merits. The suspense and spy craft is so realistic and clever I felt like I was in a movie theater.

The story is complicated with many characters which made listening to the first half of the novel a bit difficult to follow. However, patience pays off as the suspense begins to build. A dark, doomsday storm seems to rage in every chapter. As I said before, the story is so well read, I visualized every scene in my mind as if I was watching a movie.

Jeremy Bobb narrates as well as anyone in the business.

Each chapter ends with a recipe of one of the dishes mentioned in that chapter. In Red Sparrow I found the technique unique and even charming. In House of Treason I ignored it. In this novel I found it tedious and unnecessary.

Nevertheless I found this to be remarkable entertainment.

Torn from today’s news

This was an incredible story. Both current and thought provoking. The best of this series I believe. Would make a block buster movie. How soon do we get the next book? :)
