Milo Weaver has nowhere to turn but back to the CIA in Olen Steinhauer's brilliant follow-up to the New York Times bestselling espionage novel The Tourist

The Tourist, Steinhauer's first contemporary novel after his awardwinning historical series, was a runaway hit, spending three weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and garnering rave reviews from critics.

Now faced with the end of his quiet, settled life, reluctant spy Milo Weaver has no choice but to turn back to his old job as a "tourist." Before he can get back to the CIA's dirty work, he has to prove his loyalty to his new bosses, who know little of Milo's background and less about who is really pulling the strings in the government above the Department of Tourism-or in the outside world, which is beginning to believe the legend of its existence. Milo is suddenly in a dangerous position, between right and wrong, between powerful self-interested men, between patriots and traitors-especially as a man who has nothing left to lose.

Quotes & Awards

  • Pittu's intense narration reflects Weaver's conflict between his training and his emerging insecurities about his work and family...Crisp and concentrated, Pittu unwinds the gripping action with energy. As Weaver searches for a traitor among the tourists, Pittu's characterization of the brilliant, obese German espionage administrator adds impact. AudioFile Magazine

    " a decent interesting read... like action but not thriller. if you want something that will leave you with insights or feelings that you remember over time... not really a book of that kind of depth. great for entertainment value. "

    " Just as thin as the Tourist "

    " I gave Steinhauer a chance, but somehow, these two Tourist books lack a moral center. Categorically, the comparisons by other critics, who have put him on a par with Le Carre, are to be dismissed. One gets the feeling that the author wishes us to believe that he finds the actions of his fictive CIA black ops problematic; but one never feels it in one's spine, as Nabokov might say. It seems a "put on" theme and, as a result, the books make one wish for Milo Weaver, the main character, that he had had a more empathic author. "
