Publisher's Summary

The Tourist, Steinhauer’s first contemporary novel after his award-winning historical series, was a runaway hit, spending three weeks on the New York Times best seller list and garnering rave after rave from critics. Now faced with the end of his quiet, settled life, reluctant spy Milo Weaver has no choice but to turn back to his old job as a “tourist”.
Before he can get back to the CIA’s dirty work, he has to prove his loyalty to his new bosses, who know little of Milo’s background and less about who is really pulling the strings in the government above the Department of Tourism—or in the outside world, which is beginning to believe the legend of its existence. Milo is suddenly in a dangerous position, between right and wrong, between powerful self-interested men, between patriots and traitors—especially as a man who has nothing left to lose.

Elegantly written spy story

I recently started listening to Mr. Steinhauer's latest book, An American Spy, and realized that I would need to re-read The Nearest Exit in order to follow the intricacies of the plot. What a pleasure to listen to this book again. It was so fresh, with a plot elegantly woven and characters that intrigued. Please don't hesitate to listen to this book - it is definitely worth reading once - and yet again.

Entertaining and a different kind of "Hero"

Gud listen . . too many location changes for me and can't always keep the character names straight. . . but then I am getting old and senile. Definitely worth the price.
