Summary
In today's Russia, intelligence officer Dominika Egorova struggles to survive in the post-Soviet bureaucracy. Ordered to become a "Sparrow," a trained seductress, Dominika is assigned to Nathaniel Nash, who handles the CIA's most important Russian mole. The two operatives collide in a duel of spycraft, deception, and, inevitably, forbidden passion that threatens not only their lives but the security of America's most valuable Russian spy

Summary
Former ballerina Dominika Egorova serves Vladimir Putin's regime by seducing, then spying on, enemies of the state. CIA officer Nate Nash has been reassigned to Helsinki after nearly blowing the cover of a highly valuable Russian mole, and this is where Dominika latches on, determined to learn the mole's identity. But Dominika is more than a pretty lady -- she's smart, and her synesthesia allows her to tell when someone is lying. As they try to outwit and out-spy each other, readers are treated to vivid, authentic details of spycraft. Author Jason Matthews knows his stuff -- he worked for the CIA for more than 30 years -- and there are shades of John le Carré in his writing. - Description by Shauna Griffin
