Notă biografică

Jason Matthews is the real deal. As an Operations Officer in the CIA, his brief was simple: steal secrets from the opposition and protect his own. Over a thirty-three-year career, Matthews served in multiple overseas locations, specializing in denied-areas operations and national security. He conducted agent recruitment in key counter-proliferation regions including the Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, East Asian, the Middle East and the Caribbean. As a retired Chief in various CIA Stations, there are few people on the planet better positioned to write about the thrilling the world of espionage, intelligence and counter-terrorism. Jason lives in Southern California with his wife Suzanne, who is also a thirty-three-year veteran of the CIA, having served as an Operations Officer in the Directorate of Operations. He is currently working on his next novel.


Dominika Egorova, of the Russian Intelligence Service, is one of the most complex and compelling heroines to grace the espionage genre ... Palace of Treason is enthralling ... That Matthews, who served in the C.I.A. for 33 years, knows the world of espionage and its darkest corners is never in doubt ... Whether in Vienna, Moscow or Washington, Matthews's scene-setting is superb, and he has a fine eye for telling details ... Palace of Treason shimmers with authenticity
Taut, fast-paced and authentic. A great American spy novel
Sublime and sophisticated ... a fast-paced thriller ... as noteworthy for its superior style as for its gripping depiction of a secretive world
A primer in 21st-century spying... terrifically good
The best espionage novel you've ever read
There is much to relish, from its revival of the sexy spy (this time female) to its mischievous portrayal of Putin
As authentic a spy novel as you are ever apt to read, rendered in exciting prose by a master who helped craft the rules by which spying is conducted. A ten-cloak, ten-dagger read
Matthews is the insider's insider. He knows the secrets. And he is also a master storyteller
The world of a spy is unique and claustrophobic, but this bold tale captures its every nuance with expert precision. A tantalizing premise, and a heroine who's an alpha female, forge a solid piece of entertainment that does not disappoint
A sequel that's every bit as good as his début . . . Authentic tradecraft, a complex plot that steadily builds tension, and credible heroes and villains on both sides make this a standout
The tough and talented Egorova is a brilliant creation - her adventures make for a dazzling thrill-filled journey across the globe. Matthews spent 30 years as a CIA agent so this is the real deal. Thrilling, absorbing and brilliantly descriptive ... you won't fail to be won over
Egorova could well turn out to be the greatest ever female character in spy fiction
