An American Spyby Olen Steinhauer
Synopses & Reviews
"Another must-read from the best novelist working today in the tradition of John le Carré." —Booklist (starred)
In Olen Steinhauers bestseller, The Tourist, reluctant CIA agent Milo Weaver uncovered a conspiracy linking the Chinese government to the highest reaches of the American intelligence community, including his own Department of Tourism—the most clandestine department in the Company. The shocking blowback arrived in the Hammett Award-winning The Nearest Exit when the department was almost completely wiped out as the result of an even more insidious plot.
Following on the heels of these two spectacular New York Times bestsellers comes An American Spy, Steinhauers most outstanding thriller yet. With only a handful of “tourists”—CIA-trained assassins—left, Weaver would like to move on and use this as an opportunity to regain a normal life focused on his family. But his former boss, Alan Drummond, cant let it go. When Alan uses one of Milos compromised aliases then disappears, calling all kinds of attention to himself , Milo must hunt him down.Worse still, it's beginning to look as if the departments enemies are gearing up for a final, fatal blow.
With An American Spy, Olen Steinhauer, by far the best espionage writer in a generation, delivers a searing international thriller.
An American Spy is one of The New York Times Notable Books of 2012.
