The Red Sparrow Trilogy. Jason Matthews 2013 – 2018.  Three titles in this;  Red Sparrow, Palace of Treason, and The Kremlin’s Candidate.  The story line follows the background,  recruitment and handling by  CIA operative Nathaniel Nash of Dominique Ergogan through her almost 20 years  in the Russian equivalent of the CIA.   You will never look at Putin’s statements the same way again nor those of his surrounding people. This could completely reset your views to the CIA and Russia etc.  The author and his wife worked for the CIA for many decades in many cities as well as Washington. I suspect that many of the characters in the stories reflect those they saw in real life.   This much rings true. Great tales which move right along.
