Red Sparrow Book Excerpt:

Now a major motion picture starring Jennifer Lawrence and Joel Edgerton! From the New York Times bestselling author and veteran CIA officer Jason Matthews comes the electrifying modern spy thriller Red Sparrow. In contemporary Russia, state intelligence officer Dominika Egorova has been drafted to become a “Sparrow”—a spy trained in the art of seduction to elicit information from their marks. She’s been assigned to Nathaniel Nash, a CIA officer who handles the organization’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. For fans of John le Carré and Ian Fleming and featuring “high-level espionage, pulse-pounding danger, sex, double agents, and double crosses” (Nelson DeMille), Red Sparrow is a timely and electrifying thriller that is impossible to put down.

Red Sparrow Trilogy eBook Boxed Set Book Excerpt:

Red Sparrow is now a major motion picture starring Jennifer Lawrence and Joel Edgerton! Now available in a single collection, the complete electrifying New York Times bestselling trilogy—Red Sparrow, Palace of Treason, and The Kremlin’s Candidate—“a primer in twenty-first-century spying...terrifically good” (The New York Times Book Review) from veteran CIA officer Jason Matthews. In present-day Russia, ruled by President Vladimir Putin, Russian intelligence officer Dominika Egorov struggles to survive in the post-Soviet intelligence jungle. Forced to become a “Sparrow”—a spy trained in the art of seduction to elicit information from unsuspecting marks—she’s been assigned to Nathaniel Nash, a CIA officer who handles the organization’s most sensitive Russian intelligence. The action in The Red Sparrow Trilogy careens between Russia, France, Hong Kong, Turkey, Greece, Italy, and the United States as these two young intelligence officers, trained in their respective spy schools, collide in a charged atmosphere of deception and a forbidden spiral of carnal attraction that threatens both their careers and consumes intelligence agencies from Moscow to the highest offices in the US government. In each book they confront not only the shadows and intrigues of the Russian and American intelligence networks but highly trained, cold-blooded killers assigned to destroy them. With a plot ripped from tomorrow’s headlines, and written with sophisticated brio, The Red Sparrow Trilogy has been hailed as a monumental accomplishment “as suspenseful and cinematic as the best spy movies” (The Philadelphia Inquirer); “fans of the genre’s masters including John le Carré and Ian Fleming will happily embrace Matthews’s central spy” (USA TODAY). Collected together, the three novels form a stunning masterwork of suspense, intrigue, sex, and violence.

Song of the Red Sparrow Book Three Book Excerpt:

Prairie Gulch, Texas, is a rough-and-tumble town tucked away on the fringes of the civilized world; the Civil War has had its effect here, though, in spite of the town’s isolation. It has been twenty years since the war ended, and yet people still remember the pain it caused. Some citizens even harbor secrets of that dark time—secrets told to no one. Could the woman living in the large house on the edge of town be the legend whispered about for years? The knowledge of a truth that could rewrite history comes with a heavy price – a price some have already paid and others will. A series of strange deaths suddenly sets the city on its toes and reawakens past pain. Decades earlier, the assassination of President Lincoln shocked the nation. Now, his ghost seems to haunt their small Texas town. In this third and final installment of the Song of the Red Sparrow series, all secrets are revealed, all conflicts resolved, and all lives changed.

Song of the Red Sparrow Book Two Book Excerpt:

So much has happened in the twenty years following the Civil War, the most shocking event to stun the country to date. As a young nation fights for survival and identity, its citizens seek their own purpose and understanding. In Prairie Gulch, a hidden town in Texas, what seems on the surface like the innocent arrival of four singers puts in motion a series of events that could alter history itself. One of the young entertainers could be the key to unlocking a mystery- a local myth discussed only in hushed tones that has captivated the attention of locals for years. As the puzzle begins to come together, the townspeople may learn that some legends are better left unproven, and some secrets are better left buried. Song of the Red Sparrow Book Two is the second installment in a trilogy that traces an epic American story. From the end of the Civil War to a small, isolated frontier town in Texas two decades later, guarded secrets are about to be revealed, lives changed, loves lost ... and history itself could be rewritten.

Palace of Treason Book Excerpt:

"Captain Dominika Egorova of the Russian Intelligence Service (SVR) has returned from the West to Moscow. She despises the men she serves, the oligarchs, and crooks, and thugs of Putin's Russia. What no one knows is that Dominika is working for the CIA as Washington's most sensitive penetration of SVR and the Kremlin. As she expertly dodges exposure, Dominika deals with a murderously psychotic boss; survives an Iranian assassination attempt; escapes a counterintelligence ambush; rescues an arrested agent and exfiltrates him out of Russia; and has a chilling midnight conversation in her nightgown with President Putin. Complicating these risks is the fact that Dominika is in love with her CIA handler, Nate Nash, and their lust is as dangerous as committing espionage in Moscow. And when a mole in the SVR finds Dominika's name on a restricted list of sources, it is a virtual death sentence."--

A Drop of Chinese Blood Book Excerpt:

James Church's Inspector O novels have been hailed as "crackling good" (The Washington Post) and "tremendously clever" (Tampa Tribune), while Church himself has been embraced by critics as "the equal of le Carré" (Publishers Weekly, starred). Now Church—a former Western intelligence officer who pulls back the curtain on the hidden world of North Korea in a way that no one else can—comes roaring back with a new novel introducing Inspector O's nephew, Major Bing, the long-suffering chief of the Chinese Ministry of State Security operations on the border with North Korea. The last place Bing expected to find the stunningly beautiful Madame Fang—a woman Headquarters wants closely watched—was on his front doorstep. Then, as suddenly as she shows up, Madame Fang mysteriously disappears across the river into North Korea, leaving in her wake both consternation and a highly sensitive assignment for Bing to bring back from the North a long missing Chinese security official. Concerned for his nephew's safety, O reluctantly helps him navigate an increasingly complex and deadly maze, one that leads down the twisted byways of O's homeland. In the tradition of Philip Kerr's Berlin Noir trilogy, and the Inspector Arkady Renko novels, A Drop of Chinese Blood presents an unfamiliar world, a perplexing universe where the rules are an enigma to the reader and even, sometimes, to Inspector O. Once again, James Church has crafted a story with beautifully spare prose and layered descriptions of a country and a people he knows by heart.
