9780007296774: The Tourist

In Olen Steinhauer’s explosive New York Times bestseller, Milo Weaver has tried to leave his old life of secrets and lies behind by giving up his job as a “tourist” for the CIA—an undercover agent with no home, no identity—and working a desk at the CIA’s New York headquarters. But staying retired from the field becomes impossible when the arrest of a long-sought-after assassin sets off an investigation into one of Milo’s oldest colleagues and friends. With new layers of intrigue being exposed in his old cases, he has no choice but to go back undercover and find out who’s been pulling the strings once and for all.

In The Tourist, Olen Steinhauer—twice nominated for the Edgar Award—tackles an intricate story of betrayal and manipulation, loyalty and risk, in an utterly compelling novel that is both thoroughly modern and yet also reminiscent of the espionage genre’s most touted luminaries.

From the Back Cover:

A New York Times Notable Book of the Year

"The Tourist should be savored...

As rich and intriguing as the best of Le Carré, Deighton or Graham Greene, Steinhauer's complex, moving spy novel is perfect for our uncertain, emotionally fraught times."

Los Angeles Times

But when the arrest of a long-sought-after assassin sets off an investigation into a colleague, exposing new layers of intrigue in his old cases, he has no choice but to go back undercover and find out who's been behind it allfrom the very beginning.

"[A] TOUR DE FORCE... First-rate popular fiction...The Tourist is SERIOUS ENTERTAINMENT that raises interesting questions."―Washington Post

"The kind of PRINCIPLED HERO we long to believe still exists in fiction, if not in life."

The New York Times Book Review (Editor's Choice)

"Elaborately engineered... Mr. Steinhauer, the two-time Edgar Award nominee...can be legitimately mentioned alongside of John le Carré."

―Janet Maslin, The New York Times

"UNRELENTING PARANOIA...AN EXCITING RIDE. "

The Boston Globe
