The Tourist (Milo Weaver, Book 1)
A burnt-out CIA agent gets back in the game when the death of an elusive master assassin triggers a massive cover-up in two-time Edgar Award finalist Olen Steinhauer's first contemporary espionage novel.
The New York Times - Janet Maslin
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…Mr. Steinhauer…who can be legitimately mentioned alongside John le Carre…displays a high degree of what Mr. le Carre'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.
