“A decade ago, the CIA’s Department of Tourism, a corps of highly trained assassins, went defunct, but now something similar has emerged from its ruins in bestseller Steinhauer’s stunning fourth thriller featuring ex-CIA operative Milo Weaver (after 2012’s AN AMERICAN SPY)…The author does a masterly job of evoking dingy desert cities and the rarified air of Davos, Switzerland. Steinhauer reinforces his position at the top of the espionage genre.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Like John le Carré’s AGENT RUNNING IN THE FIELD (2019), Steinhauer pits a disenchanted agent, an ideologue no more, against the new evil empire, multinational corporations for whom ‘money knows no borders.’ It’s not a fair fight, but Milo is a hell of a counterpuncher, and we love rooting for him.”–Booklist, starred review

“Steinhauer is particularly good at articulating contemporary spy craft—the mechanics of surveillance and intelligence in the digital age and the depth of paranoia endemic to the trade. In addition, his ability to create characters with genuine emotions and conflicts, coupled with an insightful and often poetic writing style, set him apart in the world of espionage fiction.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review


“[A] modern-day espionage masterpiece. THE TOURIST was impressive…but this is even better, a dazzling, dizzyingly complex world of clandestine warfare that is complicated further by the affairs of the heart. Steinhauer never forgets the human lives at stake, and that, perhaps, is the now-older Weaver’s flaw: he is too human, too attached, to be the perfect spy. His failure to save the girl he was told to kill threads the whole book like barbed wire.”–Booklist, starred review


“While plenty of breathtaking scenes in the world’s most beautiful places bolster the heart-stopping action, the real story is the soul-crushing toil the job inflicts on a person who can’t trust anyone, whose life is a lie fueled by paranoia.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
