"Olen Steinhauer's Milo Weaver novels are must-reads for lovers of the genre." --The Washington Post
WithAn American Spy, Steinhauer delivers a searing international thriller that will settle once and for all who is pulling the strings and who is being played.
In the bestsellerThe Tourist, reluctant CIA agent Milo Weaver uncovered a conspiracy linking the Chinese government to the highest reaches of the American intelligence community, including his own Department of Tourism--the most clandestine department in the Company. The shocking blowback arrived in the Hammett Award-winningThe Nearest Exit when the Department of Tourism was almost completely wiped out as the result of an even more insidious plot.
Now, with only a handful of "tourists"--CIA-trained assassins--left, Weaver would like to use this opportunity to return to a normal life, a life focused on his family. But his former CIA boss, Alan Drummond, can't let the job go. When Alan uses one of Milo's compromised aliases to travel to London and then disappears, calling all kinds of attention to his actions, Milo has no choice but to go in search of him. Worse still, it's beginning to look as if Tourism's enemies are gearingup for a final, fatal blow.
