Thriller Political | Thriller Spy

Following the assassination of 33 Tourists, CIA-trained operatives from the clandestine Department of Tourism, Milo Weaver wants nothing more than to live a normal life with his wife and daughter. Also a Tourist, Milo is lucky to be one of the few survivors of the annihilation. However, his friend and former boss in the CIA, Alan Drummond, doesn't find it as easy to adjust to Tourism's dissolution. Alan is always scheming to find out who was behind their downfall and exact retribution. Then Alan disappears unexpectedly and turns up in London using one of Milo's previously compromised aliases. Since the name will call attention to Milo, the only way he can protect himself and his family is to locate Alan before their enemies find him.

Of course, Milo doesn't know who to trust as he's approached by operatives from all sides. As the search progresses around the globe, it becomes evident that Tourism's old enemies, as well as some new ones, are set on destroying its last survivors.

With AN AMERICAN SPY, Olen Steinhauer concludes Milo Weaver's tale of espionage as a CIA Tourist. We finally learn who is behind the duplicitous manipulations that have disrupted Milo's life for so long. This intense political thriller is chockfull of international intrigue, daring exploits and a more than satisfactory finale.

With only a handful of CIA-trained assassins, code name Tourists, left, Milo Weaver is more than ready to return to his cherished role as a husband and father. 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 gearing up for a final, fatal blow.

With An American Spy, Olen Steinhauer, one of the best espionage writers in a generation, delivers a searing international thriller that will settle once and for all who is pulling the strings and who is being played.
