    Review quote
    "Remember John le Carre...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""Smart... He excels when the focus is on Weaver an intriguing, damaged man yearning to break free of his dark profession."--"People""" "Olen Steinhauer evokes the work of spy novel greats like John le Carre with his new novel, "The Tourist"...As in the best of le Carre'swork, 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"" ""Justifiably praised for his novels set in Cold War-era Eastern Europe."The Tourist" is contemporary but equally intelligent, evocative, and nuanced."--"Seattle Times""Elaborately engineered... He immerses his reader in the same kind of uncertainty that Milo faces at every turn... As for Mr. Steinhauer, the two-time Edgar Award nominee who can be legitimately mentioned alongside of Johnle Carre, he 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."--Janet Maslin, "The New York Times "
    Back cover copy
    A "New York Times" Notable Book of the Year""The Tourist" should be savored...As rich and intriguing as the best of Le Carre, Deighton or Graham Greene, Steinhauer's complex, moving spy novel is perfect for our uncertain, emotionally fraught times."--"Los Angeles Times"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. Now he's working a desk at the agency's New York headquarters. But when the arrest of a long-sought-after assassin sets off an investigation into a colleague, exposing new layers of intrigue in his old cases, he has no choice but to go back undercover and find out who's been behind it allfrom the very beginning. "[A] TOUR DE FORCE... First-rate popular fiction..."The Tourist" is SERIOUS ENTERTAINMENT that raises interesting questions."--"Washington Post""The kind of PRINCIPLED HERO we long to believe still exists in fiction, if not in life."--"The New York Times Book Review" (Editor's Choice)"Elaborately engineered... Mr. Steinhauer, the two-time Edgar Award nominee...can be legitimately mentioned alongside of John le Carre."--Janet Maslin, "The New York Times""UNRELENTING PARANOIA...AN EXCITING RIDE. "--"The Boston Globe"
