Jason Matthews (novelist)
In 2014, his first novel, Red Sparrow (2013), won an Edgar Award for Best First Novel by an American Author. Writer and critic Art Taylor praised it in The Washington Post, writing that it "isn't just a fast-paced thriller — it’s a first-rate novel as noteworthy for its superior style as for its gripping depiction of a secretive world." It was adapted into a movie of the same name starring Jennifer Lawrence.
