Publisher Comments:

A New York Times Notable Book of the Year

The Tourist should be savored…

As rich and intriguing as the best of Le Carré, Deighton or Graham Greene, Steinhauers 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 hes working a desk at the agencys 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 whos 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 (Editors Choice)

“Elaborately engineered… Mr. Steinhauer, the two-time Edgar Award nominee…can be legitimately mentioned alongside of John le Carré.”

—Janet Maslin, The New York Times

“UNRELENTING PARANOIA…AN EXCITING RIDE. “

—The Boston Globe
