Red Sparrow: A Novel

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Jason Matthews

Narrated By: Jeremy Bobb

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Date: June 2013

Duration: 17 hours 55 minutes


Soon to be a major motion picture starring Jennifer Lawrence and Joel Edgerton!

The start of a major career! A gripping, highly commercial espionage thriller written with the delicious insider detail and up-to-the-minute insight, only known to a veteran CIA spook.

In today’s Russia, dominated by Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, state intelligence officer Dominika Egorova struggles to survive in the cast-iron bureaucracy of post-Soviet intelligence. Drafted against her will to become a “Sparrow,” a trained seductress in the service, Dominika is assigned to operate against Nathaniel Nash, a first-tour CIA officer who handles the CIA’s most sensitive penetration of Russian intelligence. The two young intelligence officers, trained in their respective spy schools, collide in a charged atmosphere of tradecraft, deception, and inevitably, a forbidden spiral of carnal attraction that threatens their careers and the security of America’s valuable mole in Moscow.

Seeking revenge against her soulless masters, Dominika begins a fatal double life, recruited by the CIA to ferret out a high-level traitor in Washington; hunt down a Russian illegal buried deep in the U.S. military and, against all odds, to return to Moscow as the new-generation penetration of Putin’s intelligence service. Dominika and Nathaniel’s impossible love affair and twisted spy game come to a deadly conclusion in the shocking climax of this electrifying, up-to-the minute spy thriller.

    A good "listen" and an excellent first book. Let's hope there is more to the story.

  • Russell M.

    great story very well written

  • Michelle M.

    Awesome book. Listened to it on my way back and forth to work. Makes traffic less stressful. Movie did not do justice.

  • Julia C.

    Engaging, well written, intense and compelling fiction. The author has a great sense of how to describe people and places that really bring the scenes to life. Had a hard time pausing this one cause I always wanted to know what was going to happen next

  • Andrea M.

    Entertaining enough to keep myself jogging. The (unashamedly male centered) descriptions of female characters got pretty annoying.

  • Patty C.

    They story was good,but a little slow moving. The author's obsession with food annoyed me so I won't be reading anything else by this author.

  • Freda L.

    A great book to listen to, left me wanting more. Hope there’s a next book.
