Milo Weaver has nowhere to turn but back to the CIA in Olen Steinhauer’s brilliant follow-up to the New York Times bestselling espionage novel The Tourist
 
The Tourist, Steinhauer’s first contemporary novel after his awardwinning historical series, was a runaway hit, spending three weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and garnering rave reviews from critics.

Now faced with the end of his quiet, settled life, reluctant spy Milo Weaver has no choice but to turn back to his old job as a “tourist.” Before he can get back to the CIA’s dirty work, he has to prove his loyalty to his new bosses, who know little of Milo’s background and less about who is really pulling the strings in the government above the Department of Tourism—or in the outside world, which is beginning to believe the legend of its existence. Milo is suddenly in a dangerous position, between right and wrong, between powerful self-interested men, between patriots and traitors—especially as a man who has nothing left to lose.

THE NEAREST EXIT (CHAPTER 1)

He felt that if he could put a name to it, he could control it. Transgressive association? That had the right sound, but it was too clinical to give him a handle on it. Perhaps the medical label didn't matter anyway. The only thing that mattered was the effect it had on him, and on his job.

The simplest things could trigger it--a bar of music, a face, some small Swiss dog crapping on the sidewalk, or the smell of automobile exhaust. Never children, though, which was strange even to him. Only the indirect fragments of his earlier life gave him that punch in the

Praise for The Nearest Exit

Praise for The Tourist

“Here’s the best spy novel I’ve ever read that wasn’t written by John le Carré… It’s a complex story of betrayal anchored by a protagonist who’s as winning as he is wily.”
--Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly
“Smart… He excels when the focus is on Weaver, an intriguing, damaged man yearning to break free of his dark profession.”
--People
“Remember John le Carré… when he wrote about beaten-down, morally directionless spies? In other words, when he was good? That's how Olen Steinhauer writes in this tale of a world-weary spook who can't escape the old game.”
--Time
“Elaborately engineered… As for Mr. Steinhauer, the two-time Edgar Award nominee who can be legitimately mentioned alongside of John le Carré, he 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.”
--The New York Times
“Tour de force… First-rate popular fiction… The Tourist is serious entertainment.”
--Washington Post
The Tourist should be savored now. 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
“As in the best of le Carré's work, the clandestine world of The Tourist is as much about bureaucrats as it is about black bag ops. Steinhauer has a solid grasp of the espionage world (either that or a fertile imagination) that enlivens his enjoyable story.”
--Chicago Sun-Times
