LoveReading View on Red Sparrow

A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

A young American spy plays a dangerous game of chess on the international field of play alongside a beautiful, but damaged Russian female counterpart, as both sides of the fence manipulate each other to devastating effect. A debut thriller that plausibly resurrects the Cold War in the age of Putin, from a writer with an intelligence background. Gripping stuff.

Maxim Jakubowski

Red Sparrow Synopsis

A Russian honey trap agent targets a young CIA operative to uncover a senior-ranking mole at the heart of the Russian Intelligence service.



Dominika Egorov, former prima ballerina, is sucked into the heart of Putin's Russia, the country she loved, and spat out as the twists and turns of betrayal and counter-betrayal unravel. American Nate Nash, idealistic and ambitious, handles the double agent, codenamed MARBLE, considered one of CIA's biggest assets. He needs to keep his identity secret for as long as the mole can keep supplying golden information. Will Dominika be able to unmask MARBLE, or will the mission see her faith destroyed in the country she has always passionately defended?
