Russian counterintelligence chief Colonel Dominika Egorova has been a recruited asset of the CIA - stealing Kremlin secrets for her handler, Nate Nash - for over seven years. In the dazzling finale of the Red Sparrow trilogy, their forbidden and tumultuous love affair continues, mortally dangerous for them both but irresistible. In Washington, a newly installed administration is selecting its cabinet members. Dominika hears whispers of a closely held Kremlin operation to place a mole in a high intelligence position. If the Kremlin's candidate is confirmed, the Russians will have access to all the names of assets spying for the CIA in Moscow, including Dominika's. Dominika recklessly immerses herself in the palace intrigues of the Kremlin, searching for the mole's identity and stealing as many of President Putin's secrets for her CIA handlers as she can before her time runs out.

Is The Kremlin's Candidate the final installment in this remarkable series of books? Let's hope not! Gripping, topical and hilarious -- with wonderful recipes.

After two thrill-filled previous books, the Red Sparrow saga comes to an end with The Kremlin's Candidate. Russia managed to place a long term mole into the highest ranks of the US Navy, and after a Russian-engineered death of the current CIA director, Russia's mole ( their titular Kremlin' s Candidate) is on the short list to fill the job. This would be as disastrous for the CIA as it would be a windfall for Russia, as DIVA (Egorova) would quickly be exposed and burned.
Much heavy-duty spycraft ensues on both sides, culminating in an extreme gamble by CIA that sends Nate to Butyrka prison in a long game that will hopefully keep DIVA safe and expose the Russian mole As one can imagine with such a complicated plot, not everything goes well, and not all of the good guys are left standing at the end of the story.
Once again, this is slightly more book than was needed to tell the story, but the authentically drawn spycraft by an author who knows it from the inside remains fascinating.
I hope Mathews has a new story to tell us again soon.

Well now we know you could not make this stuff up. Russkies in the White House. Shock horror. Releasing just before the release of the Red Sparrow film.
