From the Publisher:

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.

A retired "tourist"--one of the CIA's roving field agents--is pulled back into his old life in Olen Steinhauer's gripping and psychologically powerful spy novel. While there are twists and turns enough for any thriller-lover, what sets THE TOURIST apart is its piercing view into the loneliness and paranoia that haunt the professional spy.


"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." - Paula L. Woods 03/07/2009

"Steinhauer has a solid grasp of the espionage world (either that or a fertile imagination) that enlivens his enjoyable story." 03/29/2009

"The lazy writer of espionage plots need only concoct a world-weary agent and then send him through a string of perilous escapades. Mr. Steinhauer does something much more interesting. Rather than merely describe Milo Weaver's dizzying exploits, he replicates them; he immerses his reader in the same kind of uncertainty that Milo faces at every turn." - Janet Maslin 03/04/2009

"While plenty of breathtaking scenes in the world's most beautiful places bolster the heart-stopping action, the real story is the soul-crushing toil the job inflicts on a person who can't trust anyone, whose life is a lie fueled by paranoia....Outstanding." 12/15/2008
