From the Publisher:
When the arrest of a long-sought-after assassin triggers an investigation into one of CIA manager Milo Weaver's oldest friends and exposes new layers of intrigue in the cases Milo handled as an agent in the field, he must go back undercover to find out who's been pulling the strings once and for all. Reprint. A best-selling novel.
Annotation:
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.

Praise

"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

"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

"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
