Summary

Captain Dominika Egorova of the Russian Intelligence Service (SVR) has returned from the West to Moscow. She despises the men she serves, the oligarchs, 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....

Loved it!

I found it really funny with moments when I laughed out loud. It's a good story and an easy listen.

The narrator was amazing. I'll be listening to more of her work after I listen to book 3.

Bad narrator and poor writing

Why change the narrator in a series? First book was ok and I hoped this would be better but no such luck! I can't understand the 5 star reviews, if you're looking for a book about the CIA 'The Company' by Robert Littell is a much better choice.

Greeat story BUT ...

l loved the story with its strands of plot around different characters. There was plenty of suspense as l felt there was no guarantee that the "good guys" would win nor all of their characters survive.

Far more realistic and credible than many books in its genre and highly recommended with ONE EXCEPTION.

I found the narratir's attempt to change her voice to represent different characters not just bad but appalling. For the early stages of the book l found it a big turnoff which made me angry as in "how the hell did she get this job?"

But the compelling storyline kept me there and while her character portrayal never improved l generally became desensitized to it.

Uncalled for blasphemy and terrible reading

I have listened to "Red Sparrow" by the same author and enjoyed the story and other reader's performance a great deal. The story was great. Although there was blasphemy, it was not to the same extent as in this book. This book is much worse. I find it completely unnecessary and it doesn't add anything to the book.

Also, the reader pronounces most of the important names completely different to the first book's, with accents on different syllables, and I just didn't like the way she tried to imitate the men's voices. Some parts were almost torture to listen to. I hope the 3rd book will be better regarding the reader and the blasphemy, else I won't buy it.

I also don't need a recipe at the end of each chapter.

For the rest, it was a gripping story that could have been great, with a different reader and without the swearing.
