Over a thirty-three-year career he served in multiple overseas locations, spoke six foreign languages, and engaged in clandestine collection of national security intelligence, specializing in denied-area operations.

As Chief in various CIA Stations, he collaborated with foreign partners in counterproliferation and counterterrorism operations. His first novel, Red Sparrow, won the Edgar Award for Best First Novel and was made into a major motion picture starring Jennifer Lawrence. He continued the Red Sparrow trilogy with Palace of Treason and The Kremlin's Candidate. Jason Matthews passed away in 2021.

Reviews

"Not since the good old days of the Cold War has a classic spy thriller like RED SPARROW come along. Jason Matthews is not making it up; he has lived this life and this story, and it shows on every page. High-level espionage, pulse-pounding danger, sex, double agents and double crosses. What more can any reader want?"--Nelson DeMille
"A great and dangerous spy-game is being played today between Russian intelligence and the CIA. Very few people know about it, including many of our politicians in Washington. But Jason Matthews does, and his thrilling "Red Sparrow" takes us deep inside this treacherous world. He's an insider's insider. He knows the secrets. And he is also a masterful story-teller. I loved this book and could not put it down. Neither will you."--Vince Flynn
"I read till eleven and woke up at five a.m. to finish this book. If it doesn't supplant The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo "as the next mammoth read, ad if it doesn't take its place alongside le Carre's The Spy Who Came in from the Cold," the love of literature and jaw-dropping thrills really is dead. I learned more about the former Soviets and the new Russians, and about our US of A, than I ever gleaned from the hardest-working journalists today. Halfway through, I was afraid Vladimir Putin would find out I was reading Red Sparrow "and have me arrested. I have not read a more exciting, gripping novel in a long time."--Doug Stanton "author of Horse Soldiers "
"All the tradecraft and cat-and-mouse tension of a classic spy thriller a terrific read."--Joseph Kanon "author of Instanbul ""
