Now I can see Putin, though the book went wild to make me believe. Color auras, not all in consistency with my vision, is a clever tool, as much in writing as in heroine's trick.
Highly formulated writing, could be done by computer with human input, seamless. With guilty pleasure, I may want to proceed the yet published sequel, before I forget all the jargon, acronyms about surveillance (black in all six; I'm cotton wooled...), recruitment (asset, handler...).

In this "extraordinarily commanding, acidly relevant, and unrelentingly suspenseful" (Booklist) follow-up to the Edgar Award-winning Red Sparrow, Russian intelligence double agent Dominika Egorova edges ever closer to danger. She's got President Putin in her cross-hairs, but a rival operative has her in his. Add to that a treasonous American who knows enough to expose her, and a tricky Russian uranium deal with Iran, and Dominika and her CIA lover/case officer are in trouble. Complexly plotted and extremely detailed in characterization and tradecraft alike, Palace of Treason is a must-read for spy fiction fans.

I read Red Sparrow on a lark,always searching for a new author . Matthews is an exciting new writer and both of his first books are impressive!Palace of Treason is remarkable in its detail, especially about Putin. Espionage thriller,check it out!

I was in the mood for a fast, exciting spy novel, and I got one! Palace of Treason is set in modern-day Moscow, Athens, DC & Paris, with really bad bad people and great heroines & heroes. Can't imagine that this won't become a movie. 2nd in a series that starts with Red Sparrow; you don't have to read the 1st one to enjoy this one. Looking forward to the next one.

This book was disappointing. It needed lots of editing. Too much filler descriptions. Too much sex for a book of this genre. It's hard to believe that these beautiful young women are throwing themselves at these CIA agents. Even Marty Gable winds up sleeping with a 25-year-old woman who is young enough to be his daughter. I don't plan to read the next book in this series.
