9780007296774: The Tourist

Superb new CIA thriller featuring black ops expert Milo Weaver and acclaimed by Lee Child as ‘first class – the kind of thing John le Carre might have written’.

In today's CIA, there are hotspots everywhere. And wherever there's trouble, there's a Tourist: the men and women who do the CIA's dirty work. They're the Company's best – and until he burnt out, Milo Weaver was the best of them all.

Milo has spent the last four years behind a desk, tracking the elusive killer known as 'The Tiger'. When the Tiger unexpectedly gives himself up, it's because he wants something in return: revenge.

Once a Tourist, always a Tourist and soon Milo is back in the field, a world of betrayal, skewed politics and extreme violence. It's a world he knows well – but he's still about to learn the toughest lesson of all.

Review:

Praise for ‘The Tourist’:

'A spy novel for our times… fascinating and exciting' Literary Review

‘A first class spy novel – wry, intelligent, layered… the kind of thing John le Carre might have written if he knew then what we know now’ Lee Child

‘Relentless action and memorable characters … a gripping and hugely entertaining read’ Mark Mills (author of ‘The Savage Garden’)

‘Smart… excels when the focus is on Weaver, an intriguing, damaged man yearning to break free of his dark profession’ People

'Utterly credible…Steinhauer, the two-time Edgar Award nominee who can be legitimately mentioned alongside John le Carré, displays a high degree of what Mr. le Carré's characters like to call tradecraft. If he's as smart as "The Tourist" makes him sound, he'll bring back Milo Weaver for a curtain call' New York Times

‘[A] scathing portrait of the CIA… Steinhauer seems to know the world of spies and assassins all too well… it feels real… ‘The Tourist’ is serious entertainment that raises interesting questions’ Washington Post

‘"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’ LA Times

'Intelligent, evocative, and nuanced’ Seattle Times

‘Remember John Le Carre… when he was good? That’s how Olen Steinhauer writes’ Time

‘Compelling and hard to put down. …[Steinhauer is] superbly accomplished at both plotting and characterization’ Library Journal

‘Outstanding… heart-stopping action’ Publisher’s Weekly

Review:

'Utterly credible... Steinhauer can be legitimately mentioned alongside John le Carré... If he's as smart as "The Tourist" makes him sound, he'll bring back Milo Weaver for a curtain call'
