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-winning The Nearest Exit when the Department of Tourism was almost completely wiped out as the result of an even more insidious plot. Following on the heels of these two spectacular novels comes An American Spy, Olen Steinhauer's most stunning 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, a life focused on his family. His former boss in the CIA, Alan Drummond, can't let it 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 can't help but 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, by far the best espionage writer 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. An American Spy is one of The New York Times Notable Books of 2012.

"Pay attention. Watch the details. Listen closely. Important advice for listeners embarking on Steinhauer's newest spy story featuring Milo Weaver, (former) member of the CIA's uber-secret Department of Tourism. David Pittu's careful, taut narration makes it possible for listeners to follow every move of the array of agents and spymasters--Chinese, American, even some Germans. His accents are carefully modulated and punctuate passages with authentic precision. Pittu presents a good deal of backstory about Milo and the Tourists, and his steady unfolding keeps keep listeners informed and alert. Steinhauer's earlier work, THE NEAREST EXIT, also narrated by Pittu, was the 2011 Hammett Prize winner. Listeners new to the series will be hooked and will want to explore more of this excellent espionage series in the vein of John le CarrŽ and Len Deighton R.F.W.
