Description-
  • In the vein of John le Carré and Graham Greene, this contemporary international thriller follows Milo Weaver as he is drawn into a conspiracy that links riots in the Sudan, an assassin committing suicide, and an old friend who’s been accused of selling secrets to the Chinese. Once the CIA and Homeland Security are after him, the only way for him to survive is to return, headfirst, into Tourism.

About the Author-
  • Olen Steinhauer is the author of an Eastern European thriller series including The Bridge of Sighs, 36 Yalta Boulevard, Liberation Movements, and Victory Square. His work has been twice nominated for the Edgar and shortlisted for the Ellis Peters Historical Dagger and the Anthony, the Barry, and the Macavity awards.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Tourists are the CIA's special team of assassins spread across the globe. Retired tourist Milo Weaver knows that to survive, he must trust no one--especially another tourist. Narrator Tom Weiner gives Milo the gravitas of a man disillusioned by an amoral world. Milo faces danger, deception, and death at every turn, and Weiner makes it plausible. Is the red-bearded man the connection to Muslim terrorists? Is the CIA responsible for the assassination of a Sudanese holy man to keep China from buying Sudanese oil? As well as handling Steinhauer's mind-boggling pacing and serpentine plotting, Weiner turns secondary characters into individuals--"The Tiger," an assassin dying of AIDS; a tenacious Homeland Security investigator; the devious CEOs and assorted thugs at the CIA. A super spy thriller. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
  • Booklist (starred review) "[Weaver] is the perfect hero for such a richly nuanced tale."
