New York Times bestselling author Olen Steinhauer brings back Milo Weaver in The Last Tourist.In Olen Steinhauer's bestseller An American Spy, reluctant CIA agent Milo Weaver thought he had finally put "Tourists"―CIA-trained assassins―to bed.
A decade later, Milo is hiding out in Western Sahara when a young CIA analyst arrives to question him about a series of suspicious deaths and terrorist chatter linked to him.
Their conversation is soon interrupted by a new breed of Tourists intent on killing them both, forcing them to run.
As he tells his story, Milo is joined by colleagues and enemies from his long history in the world of intelligence, and the young analyst wonders what to believe. He wonders, too, if he'll survive this encounter.
After three standalone novels, Olen Steinhauer returns to the series that made him a New York Times bestseller. **
Advance Praise for The Last Tourist
"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 kno 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
