Many characters are not who or what they are. They are all realistic with traits such as dedication to a cause, perseverance and having a moral compass. The plot moves along fast and is loaded with twists, turns and excitement. It’s so realistic that it is eerily close to what is going on today.

    I feel like I should have liked this one better than I did. It's full of things that I really like when reading spy thrillers, yet I was a bit bored when listening to it. I had a hard time connecting to Sam, which made it hard to root for him to beat the bad guys, to get our guys to believe him to help Sam thwart the attack that was coming. Instead Sam had 1 person to help him, who finally at the last minute, believed what Sam was saying. The last bit at the end was a bit depressing for me.

    With recent books like "Damascus Station" and "The Handler," and now Matthew Quirk's "Red Warning," it seems that old-school style spy novels are making a big comeback in the thriller genre. Although Sam Hudson, Quirk's CIA case officer protagonist, perhaps gets into more gunfights than do his real life counterparts, this is a well-researched story dense with spycraft, surveillance, double agents, sleepers, conspiracy, hidden weapons caches, and Cold War lore. Quirk gets all the details right, a With recent books like "Damascus Station" and "The Handler," and now Matthew Quirk's "Red Warning," it seems that old-school style spy novels are making a big comeback in the thriller genre.

Quirk gets all the details right, and does a good job of fleshing out his primary characters. Although he's been writing stand alone thrillers, I would not be disappointed to see Quirk turn this into a new series, or at least write more spy novels like this. Also, I cannot comprehend why there are so many 3- and 2-star ratings for this book. The plot is a little more intricately layered and denser than the typical Mitch Rapp or Brad Thor thriller, but the characters are also much better drawn out and this is a solid thriller for those who like this genre.

    A CIA officer searches for an agency mole and a Russian deep cover operative in Washington, in a race to prevent an act of terrorism. I confess that my despair over Putin's current war crimes and invasion of Ukraine lead me to pick up this book: I wanted to escape into the fantasy of good triumphing over evil, and the idea of Russia's worst impulses being brought into check. Red Warning is perfectly acceptable as as espionage thriller, but If only this was a work of non-fiction...

    When an experienced assassin turns the tables, it’s kill or be killed for CIA officer Sam Hudson in this riveting new thriller from New York Times bestselling author Matthew Quirk. Sam Hudson has spent years trying to track down a Russian deep-cover operative, codenamed Konstantin—a man responsible for killing numerous American operators abroad—when he finally gets a break.

Sam Hudson has spent years trying to track down a Russian deep-cover operative, codenamed Konstantin—a man responsible for killing numerous American operators abroad—when he finally gets a break. Things, however, aren’t quite what they seemed, and soon, a meeting in Geneva with a trusted source to learn the whereabouts of Konstantin turns into a bloodbath. The shooting starts almost immediately, and by the end of the gunfight, Sam’s partner is dead, and he barely makes it out alive. Back in the states, Sam’s bosses aren’t pleased with his Konstantin obsession and put him on paid leave. Designed to let him cool off and refocus, the timeout handed down from his chain of command at CIA only gives the young officer more time to dedicate to his cause.

    Probably deserves 5.5 stars, but we'll use the tools we have at hand. If you like Tom Clancy, Brad Thor, Brad Taylor, Mark Greaney, Vince Flynn you'll love this book. The plot revolves around the main character trying to stop a plot to destroy most of downtown DC via a subterranean superweapon. The characters were all very believable and the book had a certain briskness to the narrative.

    Sam Hudson is a man obsessed. The CIA officer is obsessed with tracking down a Russian deep cover agent called Konstantin. The problem is that the higher-ups at the CIA believe Konstantin is nothing more than a boogeyman, a tale Hudson inherited from his now deceased mentor. While on an unsanctioned mission in Switzerland, a meeting with a highly placed source that can give him the proof he needs goes bad. The source is killed as his Hudson fellow agent, while Hudson himself is seriously injured a Sam Hudson is a man obsessed. The CIA officer is obsessed with tracking down a Russian deep cover agent called Konstantin. The problem is that the higher-ups at the CIA believe Konstantin is nothing more than a boogeyman, a tale Hudson inherited from his now deceased mentor. While on an unsanctioned mission in Switzerland, a meeting with a highly placed source that can give him the proof he needs goes bad. The source is killed as his Hudson fellow agent, while Hudson himself is seriously injured as well. Back home and recovering, Hudson is rebuffed and rebuked by his superiors and is essentially put on leave. The CIA doesn't trust him anymore. But what they don't realize is that not only is Konstantin real, he's on the move in Washington, D.C. no less. Moreso, he's tracking Sam while setting up a long buried Cold War plan to destroy the US in one fell swoop. Before an opening gambit designed as a precursor to the final plan, Konstantin calls Sam before setting off a bomb. But with his credibility in question, the CIA still refuses to believe him. And the more he protests, the more precarious his situation becomes. Sam has plenty of enemies these days and they aren't just Russian sleeper agents. He ends up on the run from his own agency with barely any allies. But when he's set up as a fall guy, can he avoid all the federal agencies after him long enough to track down his Russian enemy and foil the man's master plan? And will his years of experience and accumulated skills allow him to survive that encounter? Author Matthew Quirk has quite the grasp on how to tell a grippingly intense thriller with the requisite high stakes should the good guys lose. In RED WARNING, he gives readers another intensely driven protagonist up against an implacable enemy with the same kind of intensity and a plan. I like that Quirk gives us a believable and fully formed bad guy as much as a great lead character to "root" for. If he didn't, the story wouldn't have the same kind edge to it. There are twists aplenty in the story with betrayals and revelations always nipping at Sam's heels along the way. Readers will be sure to find themselves on the edge of their seat to see just how everything turns out and that means that after the success of Matthew Quirk's two previous thrillers THE NIGHT AGENT and HOUR OF THE ASSASSIN, RED WARNING sees the author with a Big Three of magnificently told thrillers!

Matthew Quirk has created a puzzle that only Sam Hudson seems able to solve. The readers are the only ones that can sit back and watch as this exciting, riveting novel unfolds. As in his other novels, the main character (Sam) is a likeable, almost heroic man that one might think can leap over tall buildings like Superman. Despite his ability to escape from stressful, dangerous situations in an almost unbelievable way, Sam is depicted as a serious person who wants to do right in his goal to protect the US from an evil Russian menace. From the streets of Geneva, where he barely escapes from a Russian killer to the streets and underground sewers/canals of Washington, DC, CIA wonderkind Sam, is on the hunt for Russian bad guys. Sam, and a female counterpart in the CIA, become rogue agents within their own agency as they become both the hunters and the hunted in their attempts to find the Russian Konstantin who is threatening destruction of our nation's capital in his attempt to become involved in the leadership of a new, powerful Russia. "With enemies lurking both inside and outside the Agency and the Russian threat looming ever larger, Sam must use all his training and nerve to stop Konstantin....." Matthew Quirk has written another exciting up-to-date novel as exciting as any of today's Marvel movies.

    Red Warning is an interesting and sadly, timely thriller about issues between the US and Russia. The Cold War never died for some in Russia, and the evil Konstantin, a Russian deep cover operative responsible for a string of assassinations, is on the hunt of CIA agents and perhaps part of a plot to terrorize Americans too. Sam Hudson and Emily Pierce are the CIA agents who must stop him. Sam has already lost one agent to what he feels is at the hands of Konstantin, and he doesn't want any more l Red Warning is an interesting and sadly, timely thriller about issues between the US and Russia.

Does the book defy logic at times? Sure. Most thrillers do. But it is a fun, fast, non-stop action read. I would recommend it to people who love spy novels and fast placed thrillers with a political bent. Thank you to Netgalley for allowing me to read this as an ARC. 3.75 stars!

Definitely a Goodread!!!!!

    Author Matthew Quirk has written some very good action thrillers and I’ve really enjoyed his previous work. RED WARNING is not one of his standout books; the writing is somehow awkward and gets in the way of his story. Even the dialog drags down the plot. Do I still believe in mastermind spies? A better plot might have helped me buy in to the idea. Sometimes it’s worth reading everything an author produces. This comes under that category. I received my copy from the publisher through NetGalley.

    I liked this book. It reminded me of Jack Bauer rushing across the city to single handedly save the day as Chloe navigated his path overhead. The description of the city and it's landmarks was great. Having been to Washington many times it was relatable to know where the main characters were. The underground however was difficult to imagine. I understand that there are underground tunnels etc. and I may go and try to find some pictures.

    A spy thriller. Sam Hudson, CIA spy is searching for Konstantin, someone his mentor Williams was also searching for. A unicorn that the CIA didn't believe existed. A few NOC's have been eliminated, is there a leak in the CIA? Can he trust Emily, the only link he has to info from the bureau or is it Jones, his boss he can't trust? It's a long drawn out story that could have been edited by a quite a few pages. I was at times bored and had to push myself back to the story in order to finish. A spy thriller.

    this was honestly a really good book! there were a couple things about it that seemed a little off to me, one of them being that it was very hard to connect to the main characters and the background characters. if you have read this you may have noticed that the chapters sort of change perspective at the beginning or after paragraphs in the chapters which made it kind of hard to follow who was narrating at times. i haven’t really read a book like this one before, but i enjoyed it and i cant wait this was honestly a really good book! there were a couple things about it that seemed a little off to me, one of them being that it was very hard to connect to the main characters and the background characters. if you have read this you may have noticed that the chapters sort of change perspective at the beginning or after paragraphs in the chapters which made it kind of hard to follow who was narrating at times. i haven’t really read a book like this one before, but i enjoyed it and i cant wait to read other books like it!

    I had never read a book by Matthew Quirk before, and I will be looking into his other titles for sure. For me, this was like watching a James Bond movie--a very action packed spy thriller. I kept wanting to read more to find out what would happen next. I loved the detailed descriptions of Washington D.C. locales, and how the tunnels are in fact real. The ending did feel a bit abrupt, but for me this was an indicator that I would be seeing Sam Hudson in a sequel sometime soon!

    Won this from a Goodreads giveaway. Absolutely loved it! The author used details about espionage that felt so genuine... Like he has really lived it. Well, when you read the author's history and the amount of research he put in, it's no wonder that the storyline benefited. The story itself was a page turner. CIA agent goes rogue after upper management refuses to believe his suspicions of a plot to attack DC. Good story. Won this from a Goodreads giveaway. Absolutely loved it!

    For years, CIA Agent Sam Hudson has been tracking a ruthless Russian assassin named Konstantin. When an operation in Europe goes haywire, Sam is sent back to the States, where he receives a cryptic phone call warning shortly before a bomb explodes in Washington DC, leading Sam to believe Konstantin is in the US, planning a large scale attack. No new ground broken here, but it’s a decent spy vs spy thriller, implausible but enjoyable, and makes for an easy read.

    Russian deep-cover operatives are in DC, and CIA officer Sam Hudson is determined to track down the mysterious man behind the plot which dates back to the Cold War.

    I had a hard time really getting into this book no matter how much I tried. It was boring. I feel like I could have written this book with 0 research by just putting together knowledge I think I know from other movies and books I have read. Rating a 2 instead of 1 because it wasn't completely terrible just superficial. I had a hard time really getting into this book no matter how much I tried. It was boring.

    I received my copy of Red Warning for free in a goodreads giveaway. Honestly didn't much enjoy it. Storyline seemed a bit "read it before" but interesting enough. Characters were well fleshed out writing decent. Suspense. All there but left me with an underwhelming, "it was okay". Just not for me.

    Red Warning by Matthew Quirk is a spy thriller. I admit it took me awhile to get into this book. It doesn’t grab you from the first page. However, keep reading because once you get into this book, it’s a very suspenseful read. I got to the point where I couldn’t put it down. Very enjoyable!
