Description:

"Another must-read from the best novelist working today in the tradition of John le Carré." —Booklist(starred) In Olen Steinhauer’s bestseller,The 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 Exitwhen the department was almost completely wiped out as the result of an even more insidious plot. Following on the heels of these two spectacular New York Timesbestsellers comesAn American Spy, Steinhauer’s most outstanding thriller yet. With only a handful of “tourists”—CIA-trained assassins—left, Weaver would like to move on and use this as an opportunity to regain a normal life focused on his family. But his former boss, Alan Drummond, can’t let it go. When Alan uses one of Milo’s compromised aliases then disappears, calling all kinds of attention to himself , Milo must hunt him down.Worse still, it's beginning to look as if the department’s enemies are gearing up for a final, fatal blow. WithAn American Spy, Olen Steinhauer, by far the best espionage writer in a generation, delivers a searing international thriller.
