Summary

Is Moscow pulling the strings? Urgent, topical and shot through with insider knowledge, this is thriller writing on a grand scale. 

Russian counterintelligence chief Colonel Dominika Egorova has been a recruited asset of the CIA - stealing Kremlin secrets for her handler, Nate Nash - for over seven years. In the dazzling finale of the Red Sparrow trilogy, their forbidden and tumultuous love affair continues, mortally dangerous for them both but irresistible. 

In Washington, a newly installed administration is selecting its cabinet members. Dominika hears whispers of a closely held Kremlin operation to place a mole in a high intelligence position. If the Kremlin's candidate is confirmed, the Russians will have access to all the names of assets spying for the CIA in Moscow, including Dominika's. 

Dominika recklessly immerses herself in the palace intrigues of the Kremlin, searching for the mole's identity and stealing as many of President Putin's secrets for her CIA handlers as she can before her time runs out. 

With a plot ripped from tomorrow's headlines, The Kremlin's Candidate is a riveting listen and a thrilling conclusion to the trilogy that began with Red Sparrow and Palace of Treason

Needs a better reader

What did you like most about The Kremlin's Candidate?

Good, interesting story.

What did you like best about this story?

Mostly gripping, with fewer detailed sex scenes than in the previous two books, which seemed like simple padding.

How could the performance have been better?

A better reader who understands how not to maintain a boring tone and how to pronounce borrowed foreign words.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

She's a killer who loves her country enough to betray its government.

Really enjoyable end to a great trilogy

A great end to an enjoyable trilogy. Some of the story elements felt a little contrived but overwhelmingly this was well written and performed. Highly recommended!

Not bad..

I thought better than the first two, plot is a bit predictable in parts but certainly the best of the trilogy, I liked the recipes thing made it a bit quirky, others will find it annoying....each to their own

Book three and back to a male narrator

OK... he narrated the first book too and is still excellent. I had just become accustomed to the female tones from book two...
Anyway. Fantastic from start to finish.

A good ending to the trilogy

I'd read another one if it came out. Very enjoyable book and happy it was read by the guy who did the first book.

Recipes are not necessary!

Great book, great story, great characters!! BUT, completely irrelevant recipes are not needed; especially when they dont even include quantities or any really meaningful cooking instructions.

Stunning conclusion to the trilogy

There were some aspects that were too similar to the other 2 books, like her wanting to get the Sparrow out but the Sparrow being murdered ..... again?
The end was very sad, but good book overall.
At least the narrator is good
