The Tourist: A Decent Espionage Book, finally

The Tourist - Olen Steinhauer

Olen Steinhauer raised my estimation of him tremendously in this book from the last one I read, All the Old Knives. This was an interesting and page-turning adventure with plot twists I didn't see and characters I cared about much more. Milo Weaver is a guy I will happily follow through his series. We have a secret (open secret in government, secret to the rest of us) agency with the CIA called the Office of Tourism, a guy who just wants a "normal" life, though it's pretty clear he's not going to last long in that endeavor. Family friends and a smart aleck daughter. All in all a very happy, speedy and rather thrilling even, at times, espionage tale. Yay!
