    DescriptionNearest Exit Olen Steinhauer Faced with the potential dissolution of his marriage and the end of his quiet, settled life, reluctant spy Milo Weaver has no choice but to return to his old job as a "tourist" for the CIA. But before he can get back to the dirty work of espionage, he has to prove his worth to his new bosses. Armed with a stack of false identities, Milo heads back to Europe, and for nearly three months every assignment is executed perfectly. Then he's instructed to kill the fifteen-year-old daughter of Moldovan immigrants, and make the body disappear. No questions. For Milo, it's an impossible task, but ignoring his handlers is equally untenable. Suddenly he's in a dangerous position, caught between right and wrong, between powerful self-interested foes, between patriots and traitors--especially now that he has nothing left to lose...

    Review quote
    Praise for "The Nearest Exit""Milo's back, and he's better than ever..."The Nearest Exit" should take its place among the best of the spy thrillers."--Associated Press ""The Nearest Exit, " a terrific second installment in Olen Steinhauer's 'Tourist' spy series about Milo Weaver . . . [His] company is at least as valuable to the series' appeal as is his flair for international trickery."--Janet Maslin, "The New York Times""[Steinhauer's] descriptions of European cities and their residents are full of life.
