From the Back Cover:

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, Steinhauer's complex, moving spy novel is perfect for our uncertain, emotionally fraught times."


--Los Angeles Times

"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

Book Description Minotaur Books, 2012. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Remember John le Carr.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 Carr 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 Carr, he displays a high degree of what Mr. le Carr'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. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_1250018412
