Shortlisted for the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger 2009.

CWA Judges’ comments: 'Unorthodox, unsentimental and gripping spy thriller. Traditional but with enough of a fresh stance to make it stand out. The protagonist is tough but sympathetic and convincingly realised.'

If you like Olen Steinhauer you might also like to read books by Gerald Seymour, John Le Carre and Robert Ludlum.

Synopsis

The Tourist by Olen Steinhauer

Superb new CIA thriller featuring black ops expert Milo Weaver and acclaimed by Lee Child as 'first class -- the kind of thing John le Carre might have written' In the global age of the CIA, wherever there's trouble, there's a Tourist: the men and women who do the dirty work. They're the Company's best agents -- and Milo Weaver was the best of them all. Following a near-lethal encounter with foreign hitman the 'Tiger', a burnt-out Milo decides to continue his work from behind a desk. Four years later, he's no closer to finding the Tiger than he was before. When the elusive assassin unexpectedly gives himself up to Milo, it's because he wants something in return: revenge. Once a Tourist, always a Tourist -- soon Milo is back in the field, tracking down the Tiger's handler in a world of betrayal, skewed politics and extreme violence. It's a world he knows well but he's about to learn the toughest lesson of all: trust no one.
